Dessert pizza

No, I didn’t go to Pizza Hut or Dairy Queen for dessert pizza. While those are good, this is better! Ok, so it’s not healthy, but it’s also really not terrible as far as dessert options go – plus, you’re in complete control of what you put on it, so you can make it as healthy (or not) as you wish. My option is fairly “balanced” – a little good, a little bad.  Perfect!

Here’s how I made ours, but get creative and make it your own.  I’ve listed some options and ideas at the bottom of the recipe.

Simple ingredients can make a great dessert

Simple ingredients can make a great dessert

Ingredients:

  • Naan bread (or pre-made pizza crust)
  • Granny smith apple
  • Banana
  • Brown sugar (I used stevia)
  • Natural smooth peanut butter
  • Graham cracker crumbs
Sauteed apples and bananas with brown sugar

Sauteed apples and bananas with brown sugar

  1. Heat a frying pan and spray with oil. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Chop the apple into small cubes and slice the banana.
  3. Caramelize the apple and banana in the pan with brown sugar.
  4. Spread peanut butter on the Naan bread / crust. Sprinkle graham cracker crumbs on top.
  5. Top the pizza with your fruit topping.
  6. Put the pizza on a cookie sheet or pizza stone and put it in the oven to bake for 15 minutes (to make the crust a little crispy).
  7. When the bread / crust is a little crispy, take out of the oven – mine took about 7 minutes.
  8. Enjoy – it’s great as it is, or top with a little ice cream or whipped cream.
So good!

So good!

Other ideas:

  • Use a variety of fruit for toppings – berries or pears would work well.
  • Use Nutella as your “sauce” instead of (or with) the peanut butter.
  • Top with crushed cookies like Oreos.
  • Add chocolate / peanut butter / butterscotch chips on top.
  • Drizzle ice cream sauces (strawberry / caramel) on top.
  • Make an icing by whisking together icing sugar, milk and vanilla.
  • It’s great fresh out of the oven and hot, but it’s also good cold!
