Fancy the sweetest slice of Percy Pig flavour? Try our delicious sweet pizza idea, which stars a cookie base, Percy Pig dessert sauce, buttercream, and our multicoloured Party Percys!
For the cookie base
115g butter, at room temperature
150g granulated sugar
1 large egg, plus 1 egg yolk, at room temperature
3 tbsp Percy Pig dessert sauce
190g plain flour, sieved
1 tsp baking powder
Pink or red food colouring (optional)
30g mini marshmallows
60g white chocolate chunks
For the buttercream
100g butter, softened
50g Percy Pig dessert sauce
300g icing sugar
2 tbsp milk
Pink/red food colouring
For the toppings
Percy Pig dessert sauce
Party Percy sweets
M&S jazzie sprinkles
Preheat oven to 175°C/150°C fan/gas mark 3. Line a pizza pan or, if you want a deeper dish pizza, an 8- or 9-inch cake tin with greaseproof paper.
For the base, in a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and the sugar with an electric whisk until light and fluffy.
Whisk in the egg and the egg yolk, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed until fully incorporated. Add the Percy Pig dessert sauce and whisk.
Sift in the plain flour and baking powder, in two additions, whisking on a low speed after each addition until smooth. The mixture should be quite thick and smooth.
Whisk in pink or red food colouring, if using – a few drops should be all that is required to give a light pink colour – then fold through the mini marshmallows and white chocolate chunks.
Pour the mix onto the pizza pan or into the lined tin and level the top. Bake for 25 minutes, then remove from the oven and leave to cool.
For the buttercream, beat together the butter, dessert sauce, icing sugar and milk until smooth. Gradually add drops of pink or red food colouring, mixing after each addition, until the buttercream is as pink as Percy.
Spread the buttercream evenly onto the fully cooled cookie base, leaving some space around the edge, then drizzle the pizza with Percy Pig dessert sauce before decorating with mini marshmallows, Party Percy sweets and jazzie sprinkles.

Nachos, but not as you know it! Tuck into a super-sweet snack of Percy Pig nachos served with a perfectly pink, Percy-fied dipping sauce.
4 mini tortilla wraps, each cut into 8 triangles
100g cream cheese
35g Percy Pig dessert sauce, plus extra for serving
Pink food colouring
125g icing sugar
Preheat the oven to 200˚C/180˚C fan/gas mark 6.
Melt the butter in a large microwaveable bowl with a lid. Once melted, add the tortilla triangles, place lid on the bowl, and shake to cover the tortillas in butter.
Sprinkle in the sugar, place lid on the bowl again, and shake to cover.
Place the tortilla triangles on a baking sheet with greaseproof paper and bake for 10-15 minutes, until golden brown with slightly crispy edges. Allow to cool.
To make the dipping sauce, in a large bowl, mix the cream cheese, 35g Percy Pig dessert sauce, and a few drops of pink food colouring. Set aside 4 tbsp of this mixture for drizzling.
Add the icing sugar, butter and a few more drops of food colouring to the remaining mixture, then beat with an electric whisk beat until smooth and thick. Spoon into a small dipping bowl.
On a large plate, place your nachos in a circle, leaving space to add your bowl of dipping sauce.
Drizzle over the Percy Pig dessert sauce.
Put your reserved 4 tbsp of Percy Pig drizzle mix into a piping bag and drizzle across the nachos. If you don’t have a piping bag, flick the drizzle across the nachos using a spoon or knife.
Decorate with jazzie sprinkles, mini marshmallows and Percy Pigs. Serve with the dipping sauce.
