Is it breakfast? Is it dessert?
Well, it can actually be both!
My Peanut Butter Banana Breakfast-Dessert Pizza has many possibilities
I personally love this pizza for breakfast. It is so indulgent, so comforting, and yet so…healthy! Well, I suppose it’d be a lot healthier if I made some type of homemade quinoa crust (I wouldn’t discourage you from it!) and omitted the chocolate chips. Hey, sometimes you’ve gotta just live a little and enjoy some chocolate on a warm pizza with thick crust. If that’s exactly what you’re looking for, try this peanut butter banana pizza. You won’t regret it, promise!
At first, I was skeptical of this recipe when I first thought of the idea to test a peanut butter banana pizza. I wasn’t sure if using a store-bought dough would work well, and I was a little bit nervous about baking bananas since I had never done this before, even with all the baking I’ve done in my lifetime! Still, I decided to take a chance and I brought the first draft of the pizza to my parent’s house for football Sunday. My dad didn’t try it (hater), but my mom and Matthew both loved it. I did, too! It’s so warm, sweet, and decadent. It is also less likely to make you feel sick after in the the way some other sweet desserts might.
This is the first pizza I have shared! I hope you are a fan of dessert or breakfast pizza, because I see no better starting point! If you are looking for a different breakfast that is filling and sweet, I would recommend my Chocolate Almond Butter Waffles. If you love breakfast/dessert pizzas (I don’t even know what to call my own recipe, sigh), stay right here! This pizza is so easy to create, it’s a healthier alternative to a take-out pizza, and tastes absolutely amazing. This is the perfect treat for the holidays or on lazy weekends!
- 1 Store-Bought Pizza crust or one batch of favorite homemade recipe (I like the Trader Joe's Whole Wheat)
- 2 Tbsp All-Purpose Flour
- 2 Heaping Tablespoons Creamy Peanut Butter
- 1 Medium Banana, Finely Chopped
- 1 Tbsp Chocolate Chips, Optional
- Dash of Cinnamon
- Preheat Oven to 425 Degrees.
- Remove dough from fridge and roll out according to instructions on a lightly floured surface. I chose not to roll mine out all the way to create a smaller, thicker pizza.
- Once rolled out to desired length/width, place on baking sheet or pizza pan lined with parchment paper. Create crust by taking ends of pizza and fold over to desired length (I went for a thicker crust, so I took mine out about 3/4 of an inch).
- Spread 2 tablespoons peanut butter onto dough and spread evenly. You may add more peanut butter if you prefer.
- Place banana slices on top of the peanut butter and scatter evenly. If using chocolate chips, sprinkle them onto the dough. Top with a drizzle of cinnamon.
- Place in oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until crust is golden brown. Check every 3-5 minutes to avoid over-baking.
- Let sit for 5-10 minutes. Best if served immediately, but can be reheated if placed in the oven set to 300 degrees for about 3-5 minutes, or if placed in the microwave for 45-60 seconds.
