Chocolate Chip Marshmallow Peanut Butter Pizza

There are lots of things from the 80's that we do not miss.

Mork and Mindy, for one. Rubik's Cube, for another. Sharing a bedroom.  The word "radical." Garbage Pail Kids and leg-warmers. Not having cable television. Matching turtlenecks and overalls.

Um, and awkward bowl cut haircuts. 

Then, there are a lot of things from the 80's that we desperately wish would make a comeback.

Esprit. Rainbow Bright. Thundercats and Fraggle Rock. Stacy Q! Watching Ferris Bueller's Day Off and Labyrinth fives times a day. Devouring a slice of chocolate chip marshmallow peanut butter pizza.

That's right. You heard us correctly. 

Pizza but for dessert.

We know. AMAZING.

Multiple times a week, our Mummy would whip up one of these beauties and serve it on paper napkins along side a Tupperware sippy cup of milk to the hundreds of children inevitably playing at our house. 

And, in that very 80's way, it was totally easy and totally bad for you (it was like the Hamburger Helper of desserts). As if anyone cared as long as it tasted delicious.

And, it does. Taste delicious, we mean. We think the Chocolate Chip Marshmallow Peanut Butter Pizza should make a comeback. You should help us start the trend again. 

Chocolate Chip Marshmallow Peanut Butter Pizza
Serves 12 adults (or 45 kids) 

Print Recipe

1 cup brown sugar
½ cup unsalted butter, softened
½ cup smooth peanut butter
½ teaspoon vanilla extract 
1 egg
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
A 10.5 ounce bag of miniature marshmallows
1 14 ounce package of semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Combine sugar, butter, peanut butter, vanilla and egg; blend well.  Add flour; stir in until it resembles Play-Dough consistency. 

Press dough evenly over bottom of 12 or 14-inch pizza pan, forming rim along edge. Bake for 10 minutes until crust is slightly brown and puffing up.

Sprinkle with chocolate and marshmallows; continue to bake for 5 to 8 minutes or until marshmallows are puffy and lightly browned. Do not let them burn!

Cool completely before cutting into skinny wedges and serving with tall glasses of milk. 

Seriously, it's this simple.

Last night in a bind I microwaved giant marshmallows and added a graham cracker with peanut butter, a little hot fudge, and a few Ghirardelli chocolate chips. This pizza is going to be dangerous because I always have these ingredients on hand!

I wish I had more of that pizza growing up and fewer of those haircuts...

My kids would be all over that.

Wondering if it would be ok to make this the day before?
if not, how about mix the dough the day before and bring to room temp before putting on pizza pan? Looking to save time the day of!
thanks!

Could you replace the regular flour with gluten free flour? I can't digest gluten but this sounds delicious!!

Hi Leelo! We haven't tried it with gluten free flour but imagine it would work well. Let us know how it turns out!
