S’mores Pizza

This S’mores Pizza is melty, gooey and dripping in chocolate, marshmallow and graham cracker crumbs. It’s the perfect summer dessert without needing the campfire! And it’s made on a pie crust – crazy!

After making my Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Pizza a few months ago on a pie crust, I knew I’d be using pie crust for another pizza some time soon.

The buttery, flaky crust gives extra flavor and because it’s so thin, you don’t have a ton of bread dough taking away from the flavors piled on top. It’s surprisingly awesome and gives new meaning to the phrase “pizza pie”. πŸ™‚

It’s also quite easy to make.

Obviously, you start with the pie crust. Lay that flat on a pie pan or cookie sheet that is large enough.

Melt one tablespoon of butter and spread that onto the pie crust, then top it with 1/4 cup of graham cracker crumbs. That gets baked until the crust is almost done. You want to take it out of the oven just before the edges start to brown. We’ll be baking it again once all the topping are on and you don’t want the crust to end up burned.

You should have a nice, crispy crust.

While the crust baked, I got everything else ready. You’ll need to make the chocolate ganache, which sounds scary but is the easiest thing in the world to make. Just put your cream in a microwave safe bowl, heat until it starts to bowl, then pour it over your chocolate chips in another bowl. Cover the bowl with saran wrap for 5-7 minutes, which the heat from the cream melts the chocolate. Then whisk away! Easy peasy.

Let it sit for a few minutes to begin to thicken.

You’ll also want to combine the rest of the melted butter with the rest of the graham cracker crumbs and mix it all together.

Once the crust, graham cracker crumbs and chocolate ganache are ready to go, the layering begins!

Start with the chocolate ganache. Spread that on there!

Then sprinkle on the graham cracker crumbs. Yummy!

Next, add even more chocolate in the form of pieces of a chocolate bar – because it’s essential to a good s’more! I used Hershey’s because it’s classic, but any will do.

Top it with a few more pieces of graham cracker. I took about 2 and a half full graham cracker rectangles and broke them into pieces.

Then cover it all in marshmallows and bake!

You get a gooey, melty delicious s’mores pizza! Obviously you want to eat it warm! And be careful, the marshmallows are sticky! You might want to put a little shortening on your knife before you slice it so it doesn’t stick as much.

And just in case you don’t finish it all in one sitting (how could that happen?!) you can always reheat it. I put it back in the oven while it was cold, set it to heat up to 350 degrees, and by the time it reached temperature, it was heated beautifully and melty all over again. Yum!
