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!!)

Dessert Pizza

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.

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.)

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 cup peanut butter, creamy or crunch is fine
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • pinch salt
  • 2 cups miniature marshmallows

Peanut Butter Sauce

  • 1/2 cup peanut butter I use chunky
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick or 113g) unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup butterscotch chips


Peanut Butter Cookie Crust

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Place a piece of parchment paper on a 12-inch round pizza pan.
  • In a medium bowl, stir peanut butter and sugars together until smooth. Beat in the egg then stir in the baking soda, vanilla and salt.
  • 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.
  • 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.)

Peanut Butter Sauce

  • 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.
  • There will be chunks in the bottom of the pan, this is ok. Set aside to cool slightly.


  • Remove peanut butter crust from oven and immediately place mini marshmallows evenly over the crust.
  • 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.
  • Pour peanut butter sauce over marshmallows.
  • Pizza can be served immediately. (Best served warm or at room temperature)
