Who says you can't have pizza for dessert? Loaded with strawberries, bananas, marshmallows and caramel sauce, your kids will love these mini dessert pizzas!

Forget the tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese! It’s time for a sweet pizza loaded with fruit and ooey-gooey marshmallows! For this dessert pizza, the melted marshmallows will substitute for the traditional tomato sauce and cheese on a pizza, while the fruit substitutes your favorite pizza toppings. And the caramel sauce? It’s just for added sweetness, flavor and creamy goodness. For extra fun that your kids will love, use colorful marshmallows!

Switch up your fruit toppings for variations of these mini dessert pizzas. Try blueberries and peaches together or raspberries and blackberries to change it up!
