Fresher ingredients like seasonal veggies work best with lighter fare — fruit tarts, sorbet or a bowl of balsamic-glazed berries. Meaty pies will better complement desserts like cannoli, chocolate or cheesecake — all of which have a heavier quality to them. Desserts should enjoy that same flexibility and creative spirit, too.
Desserts made primarily from fruit come with high levels of digestive enzymes, which are proteins made up of strings of amino acids. Enzymes prompt a chemical reaction inside the body that speeds up the digestion process. Plus, flavors like lemon, pineapple or berry pair nicely with cheese. One of the best desserts for pizza, sorbet is both a refreshing dessert and a killer palate cleanser. After a hefty helping of pepperoni and all that extra cheese, nothing beats sorbet as the ultimate clean slate. Lemon boosts salivation and clears out the taste buds. Unpopular opinion? But sometimes, all you need for dessert is the exact opposite of what you ate for dinner.
A little cheesed out? Hit the fruit bowl. Too much meat? Get some berries on the case. You could also dress up a scoop of vanilla ice cream with some berries and a hint of herbs or cut some watermelon and strawberries and enjoy with a warm cup of tea. While some people may scoff at the idea of eating fruit for dessert, plenty of people will appreciate the boost of freshness — along with an extra dose of antioxidants and vitamin C.
Classic Italian desserts include cannoli, tiramisu and gelato — perennial choices that provide the perfect ending to a perfect meal.
Without further ado, here are some of our favorite options when it comes to Italian desserts. Tiramisu is a creamy dessert, made from ladyfingers soaked in espresso topped with whipped cream and mascarpone cheese. You can serve it with a glass of dessert wine or a shot of espresso, too. Sometimes, similarities attract.
Why not finish off the evening with a nod toward pizza? Cannoli is a simple-seeming dessert with a tube-shaped construction of fried dough filled with ricotta cheese, plus chocolate and nuts. Rather than serve up plain old ice cream, go all in on the Italian cuisine and serve the good stuff. Gelato is thicker and denser than regular ice cream due to the higher milk content and the lower proportion of fatty eggs and cream.
And hey, nothing beats a little stroll down to the gelato shop after a night of delicious, but heavy meal of pizza. But one thing that never goes out of fashion is the classic chocolate cake. Ours is served up with hot fudge and a scoop of vanilla ice cream, just as nature intended. Things like a flourless chocolate cake drizzled with fudge or topped with berries is always a good choice.
An option like this provides some contrast with just about any pizza, and the richness of the chocolate means a mini slice will take care of those chocolate cravings. Cheesecake is another great option for those times you want that unique cheese meets sweet combination. Top it with strawberries or raspberries to freshen things up or add a drizzle of fudge for something more even more delightful. Pizza pie and dessert pie sometimes just make sense. Be it fruit or cream, mousse or tart, keep the tasty crust and toppings — we mean fillings! Topping cheese and bread off with more cheese and bread, plus a little sugar and chocolate, sounds kind of nuts.
Our recommendation? Order up a bunch of desserts to share with the group — cannoli, brownies, cookies or even a few pieces of cake.
Drinks — alcoholic and non — make a great addition to your line-up, especially as you enter the dessert part of the evening. Coffee is known to boost your metabolism and keep the system flowing, so to speak. Additionally, coffee has the benefit of tasting amazing with, well, just about anything. Dust the cream topping with cinnamon for a truly sparkling touch.
