Chocolate Peanut Butter Pizza

Welcome September!  We celebrated this last weekend with our family ~ such a great end to a perfect summer!
I wanted to make a special dessert just for Layla ~ so here is the background story.....  One of the activities Layla learned in her first dance class was called "Making a Pizza."  Of course we all had to try it too!  Each person gets to pick a topping for our group pizza.  Our mundane choices were pepperoni, sausage, etc., but not my little Layla!  Her pick ~ "chocolate chips"! 
I remembered a recipe that I use to make for my children, and I knew it would be perfect for Layla!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pizza
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
1 1/2 cups flour
2 cups miniature marshmallows
1 cup (6 oz. package) semi-sweet chocolate chips

Heat oven to 375 degrees.
In a large bowl combine sugar, brown sugar, butter, peanut butter, vanilla, and egg.

Stir in flour.
Press dough evenly over the bottom of a 12" or 14" pizza pan forming a ridge along the edge.

Bake for 10 minutes.  Sprinkle with chocolate chips and top with marshmallows.

Bake an additional 5 - 8 minutes or until the marshmallows are puffy and lightly browned.
Cool; cut into wedges.
