If there’s one thing I love more than dessert and pizza, it’s dessert pizza. Especially if it’s in a cute shape and topped with tasty sweets, like this Lucky Charms Rainbow Dessert Pizza. This festive treat is delicious and looks impressive, but requires minimal work, making it the perfect last-minute St. Paddy’s Day dessert or party treat. Your little ones can help make it too, that’s how easy it is!
To begin, you’ll need to make the sugar cookie dough crust. I start with Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix for this and get great results every time. You’ll also need a ½ cup of butter and an egg.
Stir the cookie mix with your butter and egg until dough forms. Next, pick out all of the marshmallows from a box of Lucky Charms cereal. This is a great project for the kids: Have them pick out all the marshmallows from the box or bowl and then sort them by color (it’s OK if they steal a few for snacking along the way). Save a cup of the non-marshmallow cereal pieces to mix into the sugar cookie dough for added sweetness and crunch.
Mix the non-marshmallow cereal pieces into the sugar cookie dough and press it onto a greased or parchment-lined baking sheet into a rainbow shape about 1/4- to 1/2-inch thick. Bake for 15 minutes at 375°F until the edges are golden and the center is just set. Set aside to cool completely.
Meanwhile, make the frosting. Beat the heavy cream with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Then gently stir in Betty Crocker Rich & Creamy cream cheese frosting along with some green food coloring. (You can also leave out the food coloring, if you wish, or swap green for your favorite color.) Make sure those marshmallows are color-coded by now, too. It’ll be easier to decorate the pizza if they’re ready to go!
Using an offset spatula, frost the cooled crust, and then top the pizza with rows of color-coded marshmallows.
And there you have it! A sweet treat with both charm and flavor, perfect for St. Pat’s Day or for whenever you need a little color in your life (or, you know, some dessert pizza).
