Recipe type: desserts
  • 12-inch pizza dough
  • 4 ounces guava paste
  • 3 pinches sugar
  • 10 ounces mozzarella cheese
  • 2 ounces Brazilian Catupiry soft cheese
  1. With a small, round cookie cutter, take the guava paste and cut into thick circles about the size of pepperoni.
  2. Slice these more thinly, if necessary, to resemble pepperoni.
  3. Place the guava paste circles in a bowl and toss with three pinches of sugar.
  4. Set aside.
  5. Place 10 ounces of mozzarella cheese on the shell and cook about 90 percent of the way.
  6. Remove from the oven and, using a piping bag, add the Brazilian Catupiry soft cheese in a checkerboard pattern.
  7. Place the guava slices around the pizza like pepperoni and cook the pizza the last 10 percent until golden and ready to serve.
