How to Make Peanut Butter Cookie Dessert Pizza
Making a dessert pizza is actually one of the easier desserts. You prepare the cookie base (or brownie) of your choice and then embellish it with all sorts of toppings. This dessert pizza starts with a simple peanut butter cookie recipe and is topped with marshmallows and a peanut butter sauce. For all you peanut butter lovers out there, this dessert is definitely for you! Even if you are not a fan of marshmallows, don’t skip them until you try this!
Peanut Butter Cookie Pizza Crust
To make the peanut butter cookie crust, preheat the oven to 350°F and line a 12-inch round pizza pan with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, stir the peanut butter and sugars together until smooth. Both crunchy and creamy peanut butter would work. Beat in the egg. Then, stir in the baking soda, vanilla, and salt.
To roll out the crust, place the cookie dough on the parchment paper that is lining the pizza pan. Put another piece of parchment paper over the dough and with a rolling pin, roll out the dough to fit the pan. Remove the top piece of parchment paper and bake the cookie crust for 8-10 minutes, or until the center does not look wet. While the crust is baking, prepare the peanut butter sauce.
How to Make the Peanut Butter Sauce
To make the Peanut Butter Sauce, melt the butter and peanut butter over medium-low heat in a medium saucepan. Once they are fully melted and combined, add in the butterscotch chips. Remove from heat and stir continually until mostly melted. There will be chunks at the bottom of the pan, but that is not a problem. Set the sauce aside to cool a bit as you add the marshmallows to the crust.
Assembling the Peanut Butter Cookie Pizza
Once you have the peanut butter sauce made, the cookie crust should be finishing up baking for the first 8-10 minutes. Remove the crust and immediately add the miniature marshmallows to it. Turn the oven to broil and place the crust and marshmallows back into the oven for about a minute, or until the marshmallows just start to brown. Remove from the oven and top with the peanut butter sauce. Serve warm or at room temperature. Enjoy!
