You've got a pizza my heart  

Calling all pizza lovers; This dessert is dedicated to you! Nothing will make a pizza lover's heart flutter than pizza macarons for dessert (after a yummy slice of pizza, of course).

While it looks like the actual savoury pizza, the "pizza dough" and "cheese" are macaron shells. Pizza toppings like the "pepperoni" and "green peppers" are sugar icings. And the "pizza crust" is royal icing! You can also make the macaron as a full pizza, instead of pizza slices. They’d look just as cute.

I even made a matching gift card to go with the macarons that reads "You've got a pizza my heart". You can download and print it for your Valentine too! Graphics were drawn by me on my iPad. I'm impressed with how I can get different brush strokes just by using the app. Technology never cease to amaze me.

[For Pizza Macaron Shells] 
1. In a large bowl, sift the ground almonds and icing sugar.
2. To make the meringue, beat the egg whites on low speed using an electric mixer until it is white and frothy (approximately 1 minute)
3. Gradually add the sugar 1/4 at a time. When the first addition of sugar has completely dissolved (approximately 1 minute later), increase the mixer speed to medium and add until all the sugar has been incorporated. Continue to beat until stiff peaks form.
4. Add the meringue to the sifted ground almond flour and icing sugar in Step 1. Using a spatula, start the macaronage process until the wet and dry ingredients just start to combine. Read here on how to macaronage.
5. Scoop out 1/4 of the batter and add yellow food colouring. This makes the "cheese" Continue the macaronage process unti you get a molten-like mixture and drips down like a ribbon when lifted.
6. To the remaining 3/4 of the batter, sift in cocoa powder. Complete the macaronage and transfer to a piping bag with a small tip. This brown batter makes the "pizza dough".
7. With the brown batter, pipe a triangular shape like a pizza slice. Knock on a flat surface to get rid of air bubbles and spread the batter. Then, pipe the "cheese" on top of the brown batter and knock on surface again. Sprinkle with sugar icing for "pepperoni" and "green peppers". Leave some triangles plain to serve as the matching macaron shell at the back.
8. Let the shells dry for approximately 30 minutes in an air-conditioned room. You should be able to touch it gently with the tip of your finger without it sticking.
9. Bake in a preheated oven at 150°C for approximately 10 - 13 minutes. Let it cool and fill with your favourite macaron filling.
