In today’s post: S’mores pizza is the perfect way to get your s’mores fix without using a campfire!
Like pretty much everyone else in the world, I love s’mores. I make them over a campfire, I make them in the microwave, and I’ve even made them by toasting marshmallows over the burners on my stove. But as a mother of 5, I have one beef with s’mores: they’re too hard to make in multiples. And when I want my melty toasty treat, I don’t really want to have to make (or help make) 5 to give away before I get one to eat. So the s’mores pizza was born: a way to get the taste of genuine campfire s’mores in one big batch in your oven at home so everyone gets to enjoy the hot, toasty, chocolatey goodness at the same time (and you don’t end up smelling like a campfire!).
I mean, just look at this:
Super, duper, YUM. Unlike other s’mores pizza recipes, which use refrigerated pizza dough as a base, this one has a graham cracker cookie crust, making it taste a lot more like an actual s’more.
It serves 12, making it a great dessert for a family bbq or summer get-together.
How to make s’mores pizza
You can watch this quick video to see how to all goes together (step-by-step photos and written instructions follow):
1. Mix up the crust ingredients and press into a 12 inch pizza pan (mine’s from the dollar store and works perfectly!). Break up 7 Hershey’s bars and place on top. 2. Dollop out a 7 oz container of marshmallow cream using two spoons – just like you’re dropping cookie dough. Don’t get too close to the edge of the crust or it will overflow when baking. 3. Bake for 17-18 minutes. The marshmallow cream will puff up and get a little toasty on top. While it’s baking, measure out 2 cups mini marshmallows and break up remaining chocolate bar and put it in a ziplock bag. Melt chocolate in the microwave. 4. Pull the pizza out of the oven and top with mini marshmallows, pressing them down into the puffed marshmallow cream. 5. Broil for a minute or so to get a toasty brown color on the mini marshmallows. 6 – Snip a small hole in the corner of the bag of chocolate and drizzle the rest of the chocolate across the top of the smores pizza. Sprinkle with additional graham cracker crumbs if desired.
Now, when it comes to the broiler step, please don’t put it under the broiler, shut the oven door and leave. Broilers work so quickly that the pizza may only need 30-60 seconds to get the marshmallows toasty. Just watch it closely and take it out when you think it looks good.
It’s best to let it rest about 5 minutes before slicing. I sprayed a pizza cutter with nonstick spray before slicing. You can also use a plastic knife. The crust will be crunchy at the edges and slightly soft in the middle, and everything else will be melty and gooey. Multi-serving s’mores perfection.
