Kid Pleasing Dessert Pizza with 5 Minute Dough

I’ve already mentioned my LOVE for the Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes book. It’s so nice being able to have a tub of dough in my fridge ready for homemade bread, pizza dough, rolls or whatever I want. And not having to really prep the dough too makes it even better.

Today I’m sharing something we whipped up after just feeling like something sweet after pizza with the family. Really all I did was raid my baking cupboard and not only did the nieces absolutely love the activity and the dessert but it was surprisingly yummy.

Pizza Dough Recipe:
(makes two 1-lbs loaves or 4 small pizza crusts)

  • 3 1/4 C all purpose flour
  • 1.5 lukewarm water
  • 2 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 1/4 tsp yeast

Combine all ingredients in a container big enough for it to double in size preferably with a lid but you don’t want the container to be airtight. Allow to rise uncovered until collapses about 2 hours. Refrigerate until ready to use.

For large pizza I cut this into 4 chunks, form balls and roll out thin.

Dessert Pizza Toppings:

  • Marshmallos
  • Butterscotch chips
  • M&Ms
  • Chocolate Syrup (drizzled after baking)

But I think pretty much an sort of chips, nuts, candies and other baking supplies would sound so good.

After rolling out the dough I put each crust on a piece of parchment paper and add toppings and cook at 425 F for 15- 20 minutes (until crust looks cooked). Drizzle with any other extra topping you want.


  1. YUM!!!

  2. My mother-in-law LOVES that 5 minute Artisan Bread recipe book. Apparently I need to pick one up, this looks great!

  3. this looks awesome!! My mom taught my husband how to make the dough from the 5 minute artisan bread dough book…she didn’t teach me ;-) But that’s ok because hubby make the BEST pizza and bread with it so I’ll leave him to it. That dough is brilliant though, we can bake up a loaf of bread or pizza and not even break a sweat!
