pizza macarons.


Mamma mia! Continuing with the junk food macaron recipe theme, I thought I'd try my hand at mini pizza macarons. With a sweet jammy filling, a vivid red icing base and scatterings of sprinkles, these sugary treats couldn't be further than the savoury snack. 




Shopping list.
(Makes 12 medium or 24 mini)
♥ Two egg whites, preferably aged for 1-3 days in the fridge 
♥ 75g caster sugar 
♥ 90g icing sugar 
♥ 75g ground almonds, sieved until fine 
♥ Light brown food colouring


For the decoration
♥ 50g icing sugar
♥ Red food colouring, I used Sugarflair Scarlet
♥ Red, white, yellow and green sprinkles

Begin by following my basic macaron step by step, using the light brown gel. I used the tiniest drop of Sugarflair's "Autumn Leaf" to create the perfect pizza base.

Preheat your oven to 150 degrees and bake, as in the tutorial, for 15 minutes

Tip: Before you bake them, it's important that they are dry to the touch to prevent cracking.

When completely cool and full of jam - it's time to decorate! 


Step one. Mix up the icing sugar with just a few drops of water to create a very thick icing. Add in the red until it reached a tomatoey sauce shade.

Step two. Fill a piping bag and secure the end. Then carefully draw circles of icing on the top. Flood the circle with more icing - as this will prevent it from dripping down the sides.


Step three. While still wet, scatter with the basil, cheese and tomato... I mean, sprinkles!

Ta da! 


What do you think? What macaron recipe shall I try making next? Or have I gone a bit macaron mad?

  1. These are so cute! I adore macarons but I'm too scared to try making them. However I've been shamed by my 13 year old son who has successfully made some.
