I hope everyone had a fabulous Labor Day weekend! Don’t you just love 3 day weekends? Even though I didn’t have to work my day job this weekend I still had to work on this here blog. Fortunately, Kelly was nice enough to agree to give Cliff and I an entire day off. Cliff and I didn’t know what to do with ourselves! We slept in, cleaned the house, watched TV, went shopping and it was still only 2pm! I have no idea what we used to do all weekend before we started this blog! We cooked a lot of great food this weekend. And shockingly there were no disasters, which is rare these days!
On Saturday it was in the 90’s here but by Sunday it had turned to fall. I love fall. I love sweaters, boots, apple cider, hot chocolate and bonfires with s’mores. I wish it could stay fall all year round. The only bad part about fall is that it means winter is just around the corner. I’m getting ahead of myself though since it is not even technically fall yet!
We have a lot of great fall recipes coming up beginning with this s’mores pizza. I am always looking for new ways to reinvent the s’mores! And the pizza! Those are two of my favorite things. I recently added lemon curd to my list of favorite things but I don’t think that lemon curd would pair well with this pizza! This s’mores pizza was the perfect fall treat. The marshmallows were nice and gooey and the chocolate was melty, but not too melty. The perfect amount of meltiness, in fact. And if the scent of toasted marshmallows and melted chocolate isn’t enough for you there is also the smell of cinnamon, my favorite fall scent. If you love s’mores like I do, then definitely give this pizza a try!
Frozen pizza dough, defrosted (you can get this in the freezer section at any grocery store. I bought Rhodes frozen dinner rolls.)
2 Tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon cinnamon/sugar
4-6 graham crackers, broken into chunks
2 regular sized Hershey bars, broken into smaller pieces
2-3 cups large marshmallows
Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees. Roll out your pizza dough as thin as you can get it. (mine was actually thicker than I would have liked, but I ran out of patience!) Brush the dough with the melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon. Spread the graham cracker chunks all around the pizza. Next, spread the marshmallows on the pizza and finally the chocolate. Bake for about 10-12 minutes, until the marshmallows are golden brown, but not burnt.
