The other day I had some friends over for a barbecue. I wanted to make a dessert but had no idea what to make. Then I decided to make a dessert pizza in the style of banana’s foster. While I did not flambe it, I still gave it the characteristic flavor.
As you can see I covered it in icing too. Like bacon, everything is better with icing.
Banana Dessert Pizza
- Pizza Dough – (Basic Pizza Dough Recipe)
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 stick (2 tbs) unsalted butter butter
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 3 bananas
- 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1-2 tsp milk
- 1/4 tsp vanilla
The first step is to make the pizza dough and let it rise till it doubles. Here is a simple and easy pizza dough. If you are running short on time, almost all grocery stores have pre-made pizza dough in the deli section. Or, you can always stop by a local pizzaria and purchase the pre-made dough.
Take your dough and stretch and toss it until you get a round thin dough.
Next cut up three bananas into 1/4 inch thick rounds and spread them over the dough.
In a separate bowl, combine the sugar, brown sugar and butter.
Using a fork or pastry blender combine the ingredients until the butter is chopped up and pea sized.
Next add the cinnamon and blend again.
Next sprinkle over the top of the bananas. I know it won’t look like much but it will melt and cover the bananas perfectly.
Place in a preheated 425 degree oven for 15-20 minutes. When the sugar is melted and the crust is golden brown it is perfectly cooked.
Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes. While the pizza is cooling mix up the icing by combining the powdered sugar, milk and vanilla. The amount of milk will vary but make sure your icing is rather thick as it will melt under the heat of the pizza. Drizzle the icing over the pizza and serve.
This is a great dessert pizza. Besides bananas, it would work great with apples, peaches, pears etc…
