Needs no introduction. Unlike a lot of other dessert pizzas with a cookie dough crust, this uses regular pizza dough to cut down on the sweetness. It’s the perfect balance of savory and sweet.
- 8-10 oz pizza dough
- 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 tbsp unsalted butter
- 1/4 cup semisweet or dark chocolate chips
- 2 cups mini marshmallows
- Flaky sea salt
- Preheat your oven, with a pizza stone on the lowest rack, to the highest setting (typically 500 degrees). Alternatively, preheat your pizza oven to 700 degrees.
- Bring the pizza dough out of the refrigerator approximately 30 minutes before you’re ready to stretch it out. Let it rest on a floured countertop (or cutting board) under a dish towel to keep it from drying out.
- While the dough is coming to room temp, make the peanut butter sauce. Add the peanut butter and butter to a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 30 second increments on low until the butter is melted and the peanut butter is warmed. Stir to combine.
- When you’re ready to make the pizza, stretch out the dough on a lightly floured surface to a 10-12 inch round, allowing the dough to rest for a few minutes if it springs back. *Optional: I prefer to place the dough on parchment paper and then trim the excess paper off around the dough – I think it’s easier to handle than cornmeal on the pizza peel.
- Top the dough with the melted peanut butter (this is our “sauce”), leaving a 1/2-inch border for the crust.
- Using a pizza peel or cookie sheet, transfer the pizza to the oven. For a standard oven at 500 degrees, the pizza will likely take 12-13 minutes. For a pizza oven at 700 degrees, it’ll take 5-6 minutes. Rotate 180 degrees halfway through so that the crust browns evenly. If you’re using a traditional oven, scatter the marshmallows on top of the pizza during the last 3-4 minutes of cooking the pizza. If you’re using a pizza oven, scatter the marshmallows on top of the pizza during the last 1-2 minutes of cooking the pizza.
- Remove from oven and set the pizza on a cooling rack set on the counter.
- Add the chocolate chips to a microwave-safe bowl and microwave in 30 second increments on low, stirring in between each burst until the chocolate is fully melted. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the pizza.
- Sprinkle a bit of sea salt over the pizza, cut into slices and enjoy.
