This dessert pizza is amazing. If you only ever make one thing from my blog ever… please let it be this. I am a huge fan of peanut butter desserts and this one is at the top of the list!


Peanut Butter Dessert Pizza!

My first bite of this sweet (oh so sweet) peanut butter dessert pizza was bliss.  Pure bliss.

I had visions of world peace.  Kids getting along.  Hour-long pedicures.  Laundry done.  Basically, everything was right in the world for just a moment.

And it is amazing.  The flavor combination is based on this Butterscotch Peanut Butter Cake I made.  (That cake is amazing as well!!)

Making a dessert pizza is actually one of the easier desserts. You prepare the cookie base (or brownie!) of your choice and then embellish with all sorts of toppings.
This dessert pizza has a peanut butter cookie crust, a layer of melted ooey gooey marshmallows, and then the best ever sauce known to man. Peanut butter, butter, and butterscotch. BUTTERSCOTCH! While the peanut butter cookie is baking you assemble the peanut butter sauce and then pour it over the hot cookie covered in marshmallows. It’s truly simple.

But the flavor and presentation are FAR from simple… it’s spectacular!


Easy Dessert Pizza Recipe

Peanut Butter Cookie

The base for this dessert pizza is my favorite peanut butter cookie recipe. The recipe is just a few ingredients but does not contain any flour! Which means this peanut butter dessert pizza is gluten-free! (Just make sure you read the label on your marshmallows as some might contain gluten.)

Peanut Butter Cookies and Marshmallow!

I think the real testimony was my husband.  I asked him what he thought and he said,

“That is probably one of the best desserts I have ever had in my life.”

(unlike me, he is not prone to exaggeration, so this was a big statement.)

He then went on to say, “I don’t even like marshmallows.  Or peanut butter desserts.  But there is something about this that once all together, is very good.”

I am sure he meant to say AMAZING, AWESOME, FANTASTIC, PHENOMENAL.  Also, did you know he doesn’t use exclamation marks with wild abandon like I do?!?!

Peanut Butter Cookie Crust
  • 1 c peanut butter creamy or crunch is fine
  • 1/2 c granulated white sugar
  • 1/2 c brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • pinch salt
  • 2 c miniature marshmallows
Peanut Butter Sauce
  • 1/2 c peanut butter I use chunky
  • 1 stick butter 1/2 cup
  • 1/2 c butterscotch chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Place a piece of parchment paper on a 12-inch round pizza pan.

  2. In a medium bowl, stir peanut butter and sugar together until smooth. Beat in the egg then stir in the baking soda, vanilla and salt.

  3. Place mixture on parchment paper. Get out another piece of parchment and lay on top. With a rolling pin, flatten out peanut butter dough to fit the 12-inch pizza pan. Remove top piece of parchment paper.

  4. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the center does not look wet. (Slightly underdone is ok, as you will be placing it back into the oven.)

  5. In a medium saucepan, melt butter and peanut butter over medium low heat. Once they are fully melted and combined, add in butterscotch chips. Remove from heat and stir continually until mostly melted.

  6. There will be chunks in the bottom of the pan, this is ok. Set aside.
  7. Remove peanut butter crust from oven and immediately place mini marshmallows evenly over the crust.
  8. Turn oven to broil then put the crust with marshmallows back into oven. Watch closely and remove after about 1 minute, or right when the marshmallows start to turn golden.

  9. Pour sauce over marshmallows.
  10. Pizza can be served immediately. (Best served warm or at room temperature)
This peanut butter overload is an easy dessert to impress everyone. Soft chewy pan Peanut Butter Cookie dessert pizza with peanut butter cookie crust and peanut butter sauce! Go try this simple recipe that will give you surprising flavors!

    • Amanda says:

      My husband (who doesnt like sweets) has been begging for this again. He LOVED it!!!

  • Lois says:

    Thank you so much for going with a recipe that does not utilize flour. I have celiac disease (no wheat, rye & barley) and although I’ve found a gluten free, cup for cup flour that works for most recipes, I always love finding recipes that don’t use flour. I am running to the store right now to get the ingredients for this amazing dessert! Thank you for your inspiration.

    • Amanda says:

      Hope that you like it Lois! Blessings to you!

    It sounds SO amazing!

  • vicki says:

    I’m confused…how can it be the best dessert ever? There’s no chocolate.
    I’ll try it this way but I may have to add a chocolate dip or something cause well, it just seems wrong to have a p.b. dessert without chocolate:)

    • Amanda says:

      Ha ha! I DARE you to try it without chocolate. Then we can talk! 🙂

  • Noozrah says:

    I LOL’ed soo hard that I spilled my breakfast. “MEN” I thought I was the only one suffering such nightmares from them!!! I felt you were describing my husband :-)) But LOVE this recipe and can’t wait to try it out!!!

  • Krissa says:

    Oh my…this is divine! There’s something about peanut butter and butterscotch…yummy. I don’t have a pizza pan so I made it rectangle. No parchment so o sprayed foil with nonstick spray, no marshmallows so used marshmallow cream. And I didn’t read the recipe through and didn’t toast the marshmallow. Despite all of this it was still the bomb! Thanks for sharing this exile.

  • Krissa says:

    Seriously. This pizza is the BOMB! I can’t even explain the goodness. And so super easy! It’s requested often at my house.

    • Amanda says:

      I am SO glad you like it!!! It’s seriously one of my favorite recipes on the blog but I have the hardest time convincing people how good it is! lol
