The Rise of Peanut Butter Pizza

I was first introduced to Peanut Butter Pizza when working in a wilderness camp for troubled boys. It was a concoction that the boys came up with. It was extremely tasty. When we built our first mud oven, we refined the Peanut Butter Pizza. Mud oven pizza recipes have always been a staple for those who love wood fired pizza made in brick, mud, and other outdoor ovens. But Peanut Butter Pizza is a rare experience of its own and you owe it to yourself to try it.

Cook Time

Prep time: 1 hour
Cook time: 20 min
Ready in: 1 hour 20 min
Yields: One 12 inch pizza (serves up to 4 people)


  • 1.5 Cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons oil, olive oil is a healthier oil for consumption
  • 1 cup peanut butter (smooth or crunchy), Try it with smooth first, and then you can experiment with crunchy
  • 1 3 ounce package Pepperoni
  • 1 cup Marinara sauce
  • 8 oz bag Mozzarella Cheese
  • 2 Tomatoes, Sliced


  1. Fire up the mud oven and burn a fire in it to get a collection of coals. While the fire is burning, start working on the pizza dough.
  2. In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix well and add the oil a little bit at a time. You need just enough oil for the mixture to form a dough and kneed well. This may require a little less or little more oil than specified, which is why you should only add a bit at a time until you get the right consistency.
  3. Lay out the dough in a 12 inch pan. Form it to the sides of the pan and make sure it is evenly distributed throughout.
  4. Place the dough in the pan into the mud oven for about 10 minutes so the dough can partially cook. You do not want the dough to brown, but simply to be partially baked.
  5. While you are pre-baking the dough, slice the dough, and measure out the peanut butter and marinara sauce.
  6. Remove the dough from the oven and spread a thin layer of peanut butter on the dough as the first layer of the pizza. (You may decide later that you like a thicker layer of peanut butter. The great thing is you control how much you want to experiment). Over the peanut butter, add a layer of marinara sauce.
  7. Layer in the sliced tomatoes and pepperoni and then coat the top of the pizza with mozzarella cheese.
  8. In a regular oven, you would cook a pizza between 400 and 450 degrees. Mud oven temperatures are variable based on how large of a pile of coals you developed from burning a fire. As you become better acquainted with your mud oven, you will refine your skill in cooking the perfect peanut butter pizza. Place the pizza in the oven and check after 10 minutes. Check periodically until the crust is a nice brown and the cheese has melted over the pizza. Most Pizza's cooked in a mud oven will be done in 20-30 minutes.
