Breakfast Peanut Butter Pizza with Jam and Fruit

Breakfast peanut butter and jam pizza

Peanut butter pizza is a fun and easy way to start the day — even an busy school or work day morning. Pizza crust spread with peanut butter and then covered with bananas and other fruit and spoonfuls of jam make a filling breakfast treat in one fell swoop, rather than making a separate breakfast for everyone. It’s also a nice after-school treat.

Make sure to use an all-fruit jam, and use peanut butter that’s nice and spreadable rather than clumpy. You can also consider using small pizza crusts to make personal-size portions.

Serves: 6 or more

What you need

  • 12- to 14-inch pizza crust
  • Natural (and preferably organic) peanut butter, as needed
  • 1 medium banana, sliced
  • 1 cup or so fresh blueberries (or sliced strawberries), or see Note
  • All-fruit strawberry or cherry jam

What to do

1  Bake the pizza crust at 400º F, according to package directions. Basically you need to get the crust nicely warmed, not necessarily crispy.

2  When cool enough to handle, spread the crust evenly with a layer of peanut butter, about thick as you’d use on a sandwich, or maybe a bit more.

3  Cut the crust into 6 or 8 even wedges using a pizza wheel, kitchen shears, or a sharp knife.

4  Place the banana and other fruit evenly on the surface.

5  Scatter small spoonful of jam evenly over the surface as desired, then dig in!

Note: When blueberries and strawberries are out of season, substitute finely diced apple instead.

    I love this recipe! So quick an innovative. It seems like a one of the biggest problems people have with a plant-based diet is the idea they somehow have to invest a lot of time and energy in making fancy recipes to put good food on the table. Thanks for demonstrating how easy it is to send kids out the door with a nourishing (and fun!) breakfast even on the craziest school mornings.
