a WHAT?! P.B.J.M. pizza – Peanut Butter, Jam, and Marshmallow pizza. See?
This was an experiment. Our daughter is like most children in that she loves peanut butter – with or without the jam/jelly. In fact, the other day I had fed her a peanut butter sandwich. Apparently she was still hungry afterwards because she wandered into the kitchen and came back out with a spoon (which she pulled from the drawer) and the jar of peanut butter. Have I mentioned she’s only two?
So what did she think of the pizza? Well the night Papa made this she refused to even try it. I’m assuming it looked too much like regular pizza and she wanted candy for dessert. I do have to admit the strawberry jam does look like tomato sauce and the marshmallows resemble toasted cheese. The next day Papa offered it again for lunch next to regular pizza and she ate … the toppings at least.
I don’t know if we’d ever make a whole, big pizza this way. When making a standard pizza, just save a little bit of dough for this dessert pizza or cut the dough recipe in 1/2 or 1/4.
I won’t have exact ingredient measurements for this because a lot will depend on what size pizza you end up making and how “saucy” you like the pizza. Experiment and enjoy!
- Thin Pizza Crust.
- peanut butter
- strawberry or your favorite flavor of jam or jelly
- whole marshmallows cut into 1/4 or use small marshmallows
Prepare the crust as directed.
Spread a thin layer of peanut butter on the bottom of the crust. Carefully spread the jam or jelly over the peanut butter. Place in a 500°F oven for 5 minutes or until the crust just begins to brown. Sprinkle the marshmallows on top and bake until they are golden brown and melted.
