We always have bananas and it is so easy to turn them into a delicious dessert like this Bananas Foster Dessert Pizza.

A pizza of any kind is always a crowd pleaser, but especially when covered in cream cheese and shortbread cookie crumbs with sliced bananas and chopped pecans drenched in caramel sauce and dark rum.
