Banana Split Brownie Pizza

This is a little slice of heaven. And, quite frankly, you couldn’t ask for a more simple dessert recipe. Easy, fresh, and flavorful, this is one dish that is guaranteed to go quickly. Just look how amazing it looks! The kids will surely eat their veggies if they can get this for dessert.

Banana Split Brownie Pizza
Serves 8 to 10

1 (20-ounce) box fudge brownie mix (recommended: Duncan Hines Chewy Fudge Brownie Mix)
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 (8-ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained, juice reserved
2 tablespoons sugar
2 bananas, sliced and tossed in lemon juice to prevent browning
1 cup fresh strawberries, sliced
1 cup chopped nuts
Chocolate ice cream topping or chocolate syrup, for drizzling

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Grease a 15-inch pizza pan. Prepare the brownie mix according to box directions. Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 20 minutes, or until done. Remove from the oven and cool. Beat the cream cheese, pineapple, and sugar together in a bowl. Use any reserved pineapple juice at this time, if needed, to soften the mixture to a good spreading consistency. Otherwise dispose of or save the juice for another use. Spread the mixture over the cooled brownie crust. Arrange the banana and strawberry slices over the cream cheese mixture. Sprinkle with the chopped nuts and drizzle with chocolate ice cream topping. Refrigerate. To serve, slice as you would a pizza, and enjoy!

  1. I love this recipe and have made it at least 30 times. I got it from Pampered Chef. I put it on the pizza stoneware with a round piece of parchment paper. So yummy!
