Build Your Own Pizzert

Pin It!

Wait, what the heck is a pizzert???

Pizzert/ noun.
Dessert pizza. A pizza topped with anything sweet. Bonus points for chocolate.

(Yes, I very much did just make up that definition ;).  But it should be a real word!)

You can use whatever you want for the crust—traditional pizza dough, pita bread, tortilla… Especially for breakfast pizzerts, I really like to use pancake mix! Such as in the below Breakfast Pizzert:


Blueberry Muffin Breakfast Pizzert

You can easily use your own recipe for the pancake crust (or, as I mentioned above, you can use basically any crust), but here is an easy recipe with a hint of sweetness, so it works especially well for breakfast pizzerts: Click for Recipe and Step-by-Step Photos

With homemade vegan whipped cream… Definitely not your typical breakfast! And, of course:

  1. Mmmm….yummy idea! I have some cocao coconut butter that’s being neglected at the moment, so maybe I could use that for a pizzert!! :)

  2. vegangal says:

    looks so good! just like all your other ideas. i love pizza and i love dessert so this looks perfect especially with some chocolate, you think? maybe chocolate peanut butter? oh my yummy!

  3. Caroline says:

    Mmm, I’m wanting a pancake pizzert topped with chocolate hazelnut butter and raspberries! Seriously, I go nuts over anything chocolate and raspberry. This looks waaaaay healthier and tastier than the dominos Oreo dessert pizza.

  4. Um yeah… the blueberry muffin pizzert…YUM!!
    I made your 24-carrot cake muffins last night and they were amazingly delicious!

  5. Sarahishealthy says:

  7. Jenny says:

  12. *Andrea* says:

  13. Looks so good! But I’m a sucker for anything blueberry related 😉

  14. Rick says:

  17. Drool. That may be the most amazing idea ever.

  18. Oooh I love that blueberry pancake pizzert, SUCH a good idea! My brain is working overtime imagining all the possibilities for this one, Katie. Thanks!

  19. You had me at whipped cream and blueberries…

  20. Christina says:

  23. I’ve been waiting for some sugary posts! you’ve been going super veggie lately. (chocolate pizzert?)

  24. todayslady says:

    Oh Katie, I love all your creations!! These look awesome and fun too!!

  25. Great post! Love all your ideas!

  26. Wow! The pizzerts looks amazing!

  27. Natalie says:

    this looks great and I’m trying to find good travel foods to stick some fruit in for my son. thanks!

  28. pizzert -what a genius idea! 😀

  29. pizzaman says:

    Pizzert is a real word! Pizza Inn, a chain (maybe just in the southern US?) has desert pizzas… thin crust with fruit, bavarian cream, or chocolate. the chocolate chip pizzert is basically thin crust, yellow cake mix, extra butter, and chocolate chips. It’s really good!

  30. pizzaman,
    LOL! That’s awesome!! I think I’ve heard of Pizza Inn :). I hope they don’t mind me using the word… well, I’m not using the term to make money or anything, so I think I’m ok.
    Anything with chocolate chips sounds good to me (well, almost anything hehe).

  31. Hi Katie! What kind of coconut butter do you use? Can you give me a brand so I can look it up?

  32. Wendy,
    Hi!! I use Artisana Coconut Butter and HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend it. It’s one of my top 5 favorite foods. It tastes like eating shortbread :).

  33. Tricia says:

    o my gosh, i am addicted to this pizzert thing. Top mine with bananas and chocolate chips, and i plan to top another with chocolate peanut butter 😛

  34. What a cool name and food concept. I love pizookies (cookie in a pizza form), I will definitely put this in my to-do list. Love the coconut butter toppings.

    1. Speaking of cool names… how cute is your blog title?!? :)

  35. HEAB just told me about these and now I have to make them! This looks too easy and so delicious not to make!

    1. Ooh Sarena, I would be so excited/honored if you make them, because everything you make always looks SO amazing! I remember once you even made oatmeal ice cream… after that, you could do no wrong in my book! :)

  36. Katie, I had to make a peanut butter version today! It was so good! I made a few changes though, would you be ok with me posting your recipe with my changes tomorrow? I made a peanut butter version! Thank you for the treat!

  37. Jennifer says:

    Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, and I coped down the breakfast pizzert last week. Can’t wait to try it on Saturday! Thanks:)

  38. beccah says:

    peanut butter as the fat of choice and then topped w 1 T nutella and 1 T pumpkin seeds!

    1. You can’t go wrong with chocolate for a topping, right? 😉

  39. Libby says:

    Hi Katie
    Love this recipe! I made a pumpkin pie pizzert using mashed pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice and topped with a little yoghurt. Mmmm
    Thanks for your recipes!

  40. melissa says:

    all your food looks delicious and I could say I am addicted to chocolate so the fact that I could eat all these for low calories makes them so appealing. I was wondering that even though they are low calorie they still aren’t healthy for you are they?


    1. I’m confused as to what you’re asking… Are you asking about a particular recipe?

  41. melissa says:

    just in general. I am just so surprised that all these desserts could be healthy!

    1. Yup, they are :).
      All whole-grain (no white flour), most can be sugar-free (without artificial chemical sugars), and mostly all-natural. Many are high in vitamins and fiber as well.

  42. shantell says:

    I am addicted to food i love chocolates i love pizza n everything mmmmmm its so scrumptious.

  43. Juliana says:

    I just found this recipe (I’m a little late), and I ended up eating the WHOLE thing tonight!!! Mine turned out total of 230 in calories with my add ins, and it was delicious! I really appreciate all of your hard work. I love to cook and bake, but it usually ends up being for my family (which I don’t mind at all) because I rarely find things that I’m able to bake with my chronic illness. My mom has heard “I love this blog” about 100x now. :)

  44. susanna says:

    i was wondering if this is meant to be like a pancake.. because it looks crispy in the photos lol although you do say it’s pancake based. still loved it, but i was just wondering if it was right that it was.. not crisp, like a pancake. : P i sound so silly!

  45. Megan says:

    i LOVE this recipe! could you make this in a microwave?

  46. Aqiyl Aniys says:

    Thanks for the information about what a pozzert was, because before I read your post I was like “What the heck is a pizzert?” LOL. Pizzerts are cool. :)
