Bloggers Pizza Competition 2014 – PLEASE VOTE for me :)

Hello my Dearest Readers :) Yes it’s been a while I know, since Easter I haven’t really had a day off or any time to myself. As some of you may know my parents and Mr Bao was in town visiting, so we’ve been busy cooking and taking them around Melbourne. But don’t worry I’m back!

Annual Blogger Pizza Competition

Now I wanted to test some of your memories hehe do you remember there was a bloggers pizza competition held at the Grosvenor Hotel last year? For those who don’t remember this is the post ~ Well it’s that time of the year again, for the annual pizza competition once again organised by Tink PR with Grosvenor Hotel.

Learning from the pro! Learning from the pro!

Last year I made a ‘sugarloaded’ pizza with dulce de leche, nutella, honeycomb and nuts even though most people said that it was quite nice and they enjoyed it. I knew that it probably didn’t get an many votes on social media because not everyone has a sweet tooth like mine :P So this year I took it more seriously and recruited Mr Bao to help and his mum was going to be our taster hehe

Chilli chocolate

Recently, I’ve been hooked on the chilli chocolate combo, I really like the extra kick of spiciness the chilli adds to the chocolate. So I was deadset on using chilli chocolate, so instead of using Nutella as the pizza base, I decided to use a chilli chocolate sauce. I researched and found some recipes, but decided to outsource this duty to Mr Bao because I’d probably burn the sauce if I was to make it. I then had all these other additions I wanted to add – fruit, nuts, more chocolate or brownies.

I first started off with the chocolate chilli base followed by strawberries, hazelnuts and some chocolate chips. We tried this combination at home and found the chocolate chips to be a little overpowering, so I decided to take them out. I then spoke to Kirk for some inspiration and he suggested coconut for some extra flavour and texture.

After a few rounds of trialling adding and subtracting ingredients, we finally came up with the WINNING combo! And that’s with a chilli chocolate sauce as a base, topped with strawberries, shredded coconut, feuilletine (think super thin crunchy crepe pieces) topped with vanilla ice-cream and more chilli chocolate sauce :)

Wow impressive way of serving ice-cream! Wow impressive way of serving ice-cream!

I personally really liked this combination and the crunchiness and slight caramel flavour from the feuilletine but I was really worried about how the judges would take it. Because not everyone can eat spicy food, but I’m really glad that the judges Julia and Paul (Head chef of Grosvenor) and the other bloggers all liked it! 

Whoopsie Daisy :) Whoopsie Daisy :)

Oh yes I nearly forgot the name of my pizza is ‘Whoopsie Daisy’ because I had no idea what to call it, and when Julia suggested it, I couldn’t think of a better name :) It really suits me and the pizza hehe! I was very surprised but my pizza actually got the top score that night along with Sabrina and Scott’s pizza from Brunch Addict.

Battle of the sweet pizzas Battle of the sweet pizzas

Two sweet pizzas appeared in the top three finalist, Sabrina’s pizza was a take on Rocky Road with Nutella, strawberry, marshmallow, nougat, whipped cream and served with hazelnut ice-cream. I’ve gotta say it’s a really good dessert pizza too but…I’m going to be bias and like mine a little bit more because of the chilli and feuilletine.

Now time to nicely ask, persuade and beg my loyal Readers to please vote for my pizza :) It’s really simple, you just need to go to this link which will take you to the Facebook page and you will find the photo of my Whoopie Daisy pizza. If you can please like this photo it will be counted as one vote. And of course if you live in Melbourne, please go down to the Grosvenor Hotel and try the pizza for yourself that will also be counted as one vote. The pizza will be on the menu until the 5th of May and that is also when the competition ends.

Just in case you were curious the winner will have their name engraved on this trophy – so if I win my name will be under the legendary Iron Chef Shellie! My Whoopsie Daisy pizza will also stay on the menu for a month and the best part, I get to go down and eat it for free for a whole month! So my dear friends, family and Readers, if I win I promise to take you down there and try my pizza! Wish me good luck only a few days left!

    I really do think you deserve to win, Daisy, because your pizza has the best name and with the chilli kick, this dessert pizza is really original. I’ve voted for you and I hope you win and how fabulous to be able to dine at the restaurant for free for a month! xx
