Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Crust

Peanut Butter Cup Dessert Pizza is a cinch to make. You start with refrigerated peanut butter cookie dough. You can either use the kind that comes in a tube or the kind that comes on a tray and is cut into pull apart pieces.

Instead of peanut butter cookie dough, try using peanut butter cookie dough with chocolate chips if you can find it.

How To Make

Press the cookie dough all along the bottom of a 12 to 14-inch pizza pan so that it forms an even, continuous layer. Bake it until it starts to get crispy.

Then immediately sprinkle 1 cup of chocolate chips on top. Once they start to melt, spread them into a thin, even layer. Place the pizza in the fridge for a few minutes so the chocolate sets up.

Next use an electric mixer to beat a block of cream cheese, some peanut butter, brown sugar, and vanilla until smooth. This creamy peanut butter mixture gets spread on top of the chocolate layer.

How To Serve

Slice the pizza and serve as is or top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

How To Store

Peanut Butter Dessert Pizza is best eaten soon after making. Leftovers need to be refrigerated because of the cream cheese. Leftovers can be reheated briefly in the microwave to get everything a little soft and melty.
