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.
