I'm from Australia, and the 'slices' Bronwyn refers to are biscuit-y
(cookie?) sort of things with a topping, generally sweet, that are baked in
a flat tin, and then cut into rectangular pieces - or slices! Hadn't
realised they were an Aussie/Kiwi thing!
haven't tried to do anything like this myself, Bronwyn, but seeing as the
base of most slices is quite often based on a biscuit texture, could you
adapt anything from the archives, and put your topping on top?
Good luck!
ps designer pizzas for dessert were all the rage for a while in Australia,
so maybe choc caramel pizza isn't as weird as it sounds...!
