Bananas Foster Cookie Pizza

Bananas Foster Cookie Pizza starts with a large baked, tender sugar cookie.  Smeared with a cinnamon and sugared cream cheese layer.  Then finished with a bubbly brown sugar and butter sauce which is simmered with fresh sliced bananas.

Those of you who know me, especially my own family, know that I absolutely despise bananas.  Unless they are smashed up in a shake, or of course, in banana bread.   Kind of like they’ve just disappeared and only the flavor is left.  It’s a texture thing with me.  What food item do you refuse to eat?  My #1 least favorite has to be lettuce.  SO not my favorite.

Today, this is for all of you banana lovers out there! 

Here’s just a little tiny funny thing, I love Bananas Foster… without the bananas.  And yes, it totally make sense!  There’s the brown sugary sauce simmered with bananas.  The flavor is phenomenal.  Whether you are in love with bananas or not.

But, I made this just for you!  I’ll just take my bananas off, and leave myself the banana flavor.  I’m just being honest.

I am in love with sugar cookies, though.  I simply cannot resist a sugar cookie.  Who really couldn’t?  So, I thought why not have the sugar cookie and the banana craze join each other.

Behold the Bananas Foster Cookie Pizza!

It is so heavenly divine!  Even if you are like me and won’t eat the bananas.

You know the stories of when a non sweet eater will actually devour a sweet treat to your surprise.  Then that’s when you know it’s a good thing, right?  

Well, my husband is one of these people.  Totally takes me off guard.  

Justin comes home from work and heads straight towards the cookie pizza.  My concrete covered husband has devoured half of the entire pizza… while dinner is already waiting on the table.  

Well, sometimes dessert just happens to be before dinner in my house.   It’s just I’m the one that is normally eating the dessert before dinner, not Justin.

Bananas Foster Cookie Pizza from #bananasfosterYou’ll love making this fun pizza!

The crust is a quick and simple sugar cookie dough, you know it…  made from scratch!

The cookie dough takes 5 minutes to mix up.  It goes into the refrigerator to rest and just chill out for about an hour.  Super easy! 

While the sauce is doing a quick simmer, it fills the room with such a sweet aroma.  Full of sweet cinnamon and nutmeg!  Add the bananas and you’re in sweet heaven.

For the Cookie Dough
  1. 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  2. 1 cup granulated sugar
  3. 1 large egg
  4. 1/2 cup sour cream
  5. 1 teaspoon vanilla
  6. 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  7. 2 teaspoons baking powder
  8. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  9. 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
For the Cream Cheese Filling
  1. 8 ounce cream cheese, softened
  2. 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  3. 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  4. 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  5. 1 teaspoon vanilla
For the Bananas Foster sauce
  1. 1/3 cup unsalted butter
  2. 2/3 cup brown sugar
  3. 1/4 cup rum
  4. 2 teaspoon vanilla
  5. 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  6. 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  7. 5 bananas, peeled and sliced about 1 inch thick.
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Preparing the Cookie Dough
  1. In a small bowl, add flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl, cream together 1/2 cup butter and 1 cup of granulated sugar. Add the egg, sour cream, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla until combined. Slowly add the dry ingredients without over mixing. Cover and set into the refrigerator for up to an hour or even over night. After it's been chilled, put the dough into the middle of a sprayed 15 inch pizza pan or stone. Use your palms to pat and work the dough out to the edges. No flour or rolling pin needed, just your hands. Bake for 18-20 minutes. Set aside to cool.
Prepare the Cream Cheese Filling
  1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine together the softened cream cheese, 1/4 cup granulated sugar, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg, and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Spread on top of the cooled sugar cookie.
Prepare the Bananas Foster
  1. In a deep, large skillet on medium heat, melt the 1/3 cup butter. Add the brown sugar, rum, vanilla, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, and whisk to a simmer for 4 minutes. This will cook off the alcohol. Gently add and stir in the bananas for 1 more minute. Place the cooked bananas and sauce over the cream cheese layer.
  2. Slice, eat, and enjoy!
  1. Serve immediately or within 3 hours.

  11. I hate eating plain bananas as well, but I love them in dessert and shakes… oh well, as long as said dessert is supposed to taste like bananas. Which I don’t like is bananas hidden in brownies and stuff pretending I won’t notice eewwh.
    This lovely pizza falls into the first category, so I’m sure I’d adore it. It looks phenomenal!
    Have a nice day! x

  15. Heavenly divine is right! I used to think a pizza couldn’t be a pizza without cheese. My new mantra? Pizza must have cookie dough, bananas, and caramel! Good grief, I’m still processing how good this looks. Gloria, you are a kitchen extraordinaire!

  22. You are so funny! You’ll just scrape the bananas off and it will be perfect:) I know what you mean though, I only like bananas when they don’t have any spots on them and they are still a little green. Other wise they are too mushy for me. This looks wonderful and I think my family would just love it! Pinned:)

  27. Dessert pizza has always been one of my favorites! I remember going to pizza hut as a kid and getting their dessert pizza. It has cherry or blueberry sauce, cinnamon crumbles, and icing. It was awesome! I need to make a dessert pizza.

    Bananas are actually my favorite food. They are the only food I eat every day and I eat two! Foods I won’t eat . . . hmmm . . . chicken, cooked tomatoes, anything out of a can.

  30. SO GLAD I stopped by from Tue Talent Show. YUMMY! Can I use rum extract and maybe milk or water to make up the difference in liquid? I will be making this. THANKS!!! Carrie, A Mother’s Shadow

    • Carrie, yes, go ahead and use the rum extract with some water. I’ve done 2 teaspoons of rum extract and 3 tablespoons of water. It works just as well. (I happened to have rum in the cupboard from an eggnog rum pound cake… so delicious!) Have a great rest of the week!

  34. I just wonder there is no perfect relationship, the number of cheating partners almost the same as the numbers of the serious ones. I have cheated my wife but I dont have intention of hurting her. I just feel the need to go with other girl with no reason. When she cought me our world is gone. I learn from her friend how she cought me and thats by the use of a spy software implanted to my cellphone. I researched on the software and use it against her too and bingo i found our she has her infidelities too. Well we are equal now. The thing is there is no invisibility in any secret technology can now know all your activities and record it infact. Get to know tis software that exposes our unfaithfullness. Maybe in your case it will be a help to strenghten your relationship. here is the link %R catch out a cheating goodluck to your lovelife. catch a cheating partner app| catch a cheating partner|catch a cheating partner uk| catch out a cheating partner| catch cheating partners spy sms| catch cheating partner free| catch cheating partner mobile phone| catch cheating partner australia|
