What toppings go on dessert pizza?

If you’re like us, your favorite food groups are ranked thusly: Pizza, Dessert, and Everything Else. Want your two top food groups in one shot? No problem. Your local pizzerias have you covered with pies, plus tiramisu, cannolis, and all sorts of sweets to round out the perfect meal.

Or, better yet, some shops fuse them together into one glorious frankenfood. That’s right, we’re talking about dessert pizza, one of mankind’s most brilliant creations.

Before you order your dessert pizza, you oughta know your options. These are some of the tastiest toppings you can get on your super sweet pie:



What’s better than a warm crepe with Nutella? Nutella on pizza, of course! (Our judges tell us that “A spoonful of Nutella straight out of the jar” also would have been an acceptable answer.) 


Cookies, cream, and crust.

It’s the ultimate comfort cookie and it’s got the right stuff inside to make your dessert pizza perfect. 


Fresh strawberries are usually placed atop dessert pizzas after they emerge from the oven to preserve their texture and deliciousness. Pro tip: Strawberries also work very nicely on savory pizzas with fresh mozz and balsamic.

Gummy worms

Gummy worms? On pizza?? Well, it’s one of the most frequently requested pies at Los Angeles’ Lupa Cotta, so there’s no need to overthink it.  

Chocolate chips

It’s a scientific fact: chocolate chips make everything better. That goes for pancakes, waffles, pizzas, cookies, and carbs of all shapes and sizes.

Coconut flakes

Typically, coconut flakes are sprinkled atop dessert pizzas after baking. But, sometimes, they get their turn in the oven along with the other goodies, giving the entire dessert pie a touch of toasted deliciousness.

Peanut butter cups

There’s no wrong way to eat a Reese’s. Besides, if peanut butter cups on top of our pizza is wrong, then we don’t want to be right.


We’ll take s’more of that please

Ah, s’mores, they’re the best part of camping! With a s’mores-topped dessert pizza, you can get the highlight of your outdoorsy weekend on top of a delicious pie, in the comfort of your own air conditioned home. Glamping in the great indoors – that’s more our speed.

Cinnamon rolls

Good news: You don’t have to endure judgy looks at the airport food court to fulfill your food fantasies any longer. The professionals at your local shop can put cinnamon roll-filling on top of pizza for you and have it delivered straight to your door.

Cola-soaked marshmallows, candy canes, Lucky Charms, sprinkles, whipped cream, chocolate sauce, maple syrup, and M&Ms*
