Dessert Pizza

This wonderful treat came about because of a slightly failed experiment. I tried to freeze pizza dough but it just wouldn't roll out nicely or rise properly when I went to use it. So, I had some extra dough in the freezer that weren't suitable for "regular" pizzas. Enter the dessert pizza! It doesn't matter that the crust isn't airy and puffy like you want for pizza, in fact, it might almost be better a little flat.

This is almost a non-recipe recipe as I've put a variety of things on, depending on what I have on hand. However, I typically start with peanut butter as the "sauce" and try to put at least one slightly crunchy topping on. Also, mini marshmallows are a must in my book. They add a melty sweetness that is just wonderful!
