Although dessert pizzas are most likely not authentic Italian, they seem to be a favorite of kids everywhere. This Trick-or-Treat Pizza is quick and easy, since the crust is made with Basic Sugar Cookie Mix. The pizza toppings are fun-size candy bars, and the “cheese” is marshmallows. Rather than gorge oneself on those little candy bars, which, although small, are way too easy to eat by the dozens without thinking, this dessert pizza is a good way to use them up.
Any kind of candy bars can be used – the first test pizza used everyone’s least favorite candy bars, and on subsequent tests, family members reserved spaces on the pizzas to put their favorites. Even the pizzas with the least favorite candy bars were yummy, and they were devoured quickly. Just a note on the marshmallows: it is tempting to use the mini-marshmallows rather than cut the larger ones in half, but the minis don’t puff the same and the pizza doesn’t look as good. It’s easy to cut larger ones in half with kitchen scissors – dip them in water if the marshmallows start to stick.
