A few weeks ago, we went to to Max Brenner in Las Vegas. We order a half dessert pizza. The idea and the toppings were great, but the "crust" was flavorless. I set out to make my own this weekend, and it turned out wonderful! I caramelized the bananas this time, but I will skip that step if I am short on time. Besides the great taste, what I like most about the cookie pizza is how easy it is to customize. It's super easy and fun, too!
1/2 tube of sugar cookie dough (or 1/2 of this sugar cookie recipe)
1/3 cup hazelnut spread
1 large banana, sliced
1 cup mini marshmallows
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Press cookie dough into the bottom of a pie pan and bake for 15 minutes. Allow to cool completely.
Spread hazelnut spread over the cookie.
Sprinkle sugar over bananas and cook under the broiler until light brown. Top pizza with bananas. Then top with marshmallows.
Return the pizza to the oven and broil until marshmallows are lightly browned.
Yields 8 servings.
