Victoria Sponge Pizza Cake

Before you are instantly put off by the thought of a pizza cake, I must stress that this cake is not made with pizza ingredients.

Everyone loves pizza, right? Everyone loves cake too, right? So I decided to create a pizza cake.


For the cake:

  • 200g Caster sugar
  • 200g softened butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 200g self raising flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

For the Topping:

  • Green food dye
  • Pink food dye
  • Yellow food dye
  • Red food dye
  • 250g Fondant icing
  • 10g Jam (Cream is optional)

  • Method:

  1. First preheat the oven to 190C (170C for fan assisted ovens). Grease on 20cm sandwich tin.
  2. Cream the sugar and softened butter together in a large bowl until light and fluffly. 
  3. Next slowly sift in the flour whilst beating in the eggs. Then add the milk, vanilla extract, baking powder and milk (add more milk if needed).
  4. Pour the ingredients into the greased sandwich tin and smooth the surface with the back of a spoon, so it appears even.
  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes (test that your cake is done by lightly pressing the cake, it should spring back if it is cooked.)
  6. Remove the cake and place on a cooling wire. Allow the cake to cool for at least 10 minutes before continuing. 
  7. Once cake is cooled, roll out a large proportion of the fondant icing. For the 'tomato base' roll into a ball and add a few small drops of red food dye. Keep rolling and spreading out the icing, the dye should spread (be patient, you do not need much food dye to cover a lot of icing).sing a grease brush, brush jam (and cream if you choose) onto the top and sides of the cake.  When ready roll out the icing and carefully place ontop of the cake. 
  8. Next for the 'cheese', do the same with a smaller peice of icing and yellow food idea and use a cheese grater to grate the yellow icing onto the cake.
  9. Do the same for the 'peppers' and 'pepperoni' and use cutters do get the shape or use your free hand.

  • Shh tips... If you're finding it a challenge to do the 'tomato' base, just use a brush and pain the cake the red.
