This Pizza Cake is REAL, Yo!

Over the weekend, I saw this creeping up on all of my social media things:

 

Pepperoni Pizza Cake

 

At first I thought it was a joke. This needed investigation!

 

 

There is a recipe on the Pillsbury website. Let’s take a look, shall we?

Start by finding a pan that has tall sides, like this cake pan. The bottom does not need to be removable like this one. It could even be a square pan, if you can’t find a circular one.Tall, round cake pan with removable bottom
Start by unrolling your pizza dough and pressing it out into an even layer. Cut out three 6-inch circles (or the size needed to fit the bottom of your pan).Cutting circles of dough
Bake the circles on a lightly greased baking sheet for just eight minutes, then remove them from the pan and cool. Open up the second pizza dough and cut two 6-inch circles along the long side of the dough, bake for eight minutes and then cool. Cut a long strip on the opposite side of the remaining pizza dough. Make sure the dough is a half inch taller than the height of your pan, and cut it into a long strip.Cutting dough
Line the round pan with parchment paper, so that parchment paper comes up and over the sides of the pan. Carefully drape the pizza dough inside the pan, to line the sides, leaving that extra half inch of the dough hanging over the outside edge. Take one of the cooked and cooled pizza dough circles and place it in the bottom of the pan.Placing circle of dough in round cake pan
Now is a great time to let the kids help! Have them spread pizza sauce on the bottom layer, followed by a layer of pepperoni. Place a layer of shredded mozzarella cheese on top, followed by another precooked pizza dough circle.Adding shredded mozzerella and tomato sauce to pizza pan
Repeat the process, until you reach the top layer. Finish the cake by spreading pizza sauce, mozzarella, and then pepperoni. Use the dough that is hanging over the edge of
the pan to create a crust, by rolling it over on top of the top layer of pizza.

Ok, let’s go!

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until the sides of the pizza are fully cooked. If the top of the pizza crust is becoming too dark while baking, use a strip of aluminum foil to cover the crust to prevent it from burning.Pepperoni Pizza Cake
Once it’s fully cooked, carefully remove the pizza from the pan by pulling up on the parchment paper. Let the pizza cool for five minutes before using a sharp knife to cut slices, like you would a cake.

Ready for an all-”Black” Burger

 

In the roulette wheel that is fast food, Burger King Japan has a strategy when it comes to its new hamburger menu: always bet on black.

The company, whose previous offerings include the “Windows 7 Whopper,” said on Wednesday it will start selling the Kuro Pearl burger and Kuro Diamond burger beginning on Sept. 19. The burgers will feature black buns, black sauce and black cheese in addition to black-pepper heavy beef patties. Kuro means black in Japanese.

The black burgers were first introduced for a limited time by the chain in 2012 and became a hit, outselling all other new products that Burger King offered during the year, according to the company. They were also available for a limited time in 2013.

“The black burgers sold extremely well because of their visual impact, but people continued to come back for them because of their taste,” a spokeswoman for the company told Japan Real Time.

 

The Kuro Pearl and Kuro Diamond, which will be made available until early November, will take things up a notch from the previous versions. According to the company, bamboo charcoal was added to the cheese to give it its color, while squid ink was added to the sauce to make it darker.

“The bamboo charcoal adds a nice aroma to the bun as well,” the spokeswoman said.

The simple Kuro Pearl burger, which has a bun, cheese, patty and sauce, will be available for ¥480 ($4.50). The deluxe Kuro Diamond burger, which will also have tomato, lettuce, and onions, will cost ¥690.
