One of my favorite things to do when I am in Disneyland is to have brunch at Goofy’s Kitchen. It is a buffet-style character breakfast, meaning Disney characters walk around and come up to your table while you are eating and pose for photos with you. I will admit without shame that I ate there many, many times before I even had children. It is so much fun.
One of the tastiest thing at Goofy’s is Goofy’s Peanut Butter and Jelly Pizza. Sounds weird, but kids (and the young at heart, like me) absolutely love it. This time, we had purchased a package that gave us copies of our photos from Goofy’s as well as a RECIPE for the pizza. I was so excited.
It’s a really fun alternative to a boring peanut butter and jelly sandwich. My kids get really excited at the idea of having PBJ pizza instead of sandwiches.
My husband made an extra large batch of pizza dough, so I just used some of that. Refrigerated pizza dough would work great too, or you can make it from scratch like we did, using the recipe below.
Recipe adapted from Goofy’s Kitchen, Disneyland Hotel
1/4 ounce quick-rising yeast
1 1/2 teaspoons light brown sugar
2 cups bread flour, plus extra for kneading
1 teaspoon kosher salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup grape jelly (I used strawberry)
Clean squeeze bottle, alternatively, you can put the warm jelly in a ziplock bag, and cut a tip out of one of the corners.
In a large bowl combine the yeast, sugar and 1 cup of the flour. Stir in 1 cup of warm water and let the mixture stand for 10 minutes. Add the salt, oil and second cup of flour. Stir until dough pulls away from the side of the bowl. Turn dough onto a floured surface and knead 5 minutes, adding additional flour as necessary to keep the dough from sticking. Divide into 3 balls. Place the balls on a floured surface, cover with a dish towel, and let rest 10 to 15 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350. Flatten each dough ball into an 8 to 10 inch round with a slight rim, formed by pinching the sides up. Place the rounds onto a lightly oiled baking sheet and bake until golden brown, about 10 minutes.
Remove the pies from the oven and cover each with peanut butter. Put the jelly and 3 tablespoons of water into a clean squeeze bottle and shake until mixture is smooth. Start in the center of the pizza and move around and out toward the rim, squeezing the jelly ouver the peanut butter in a swirl patter. Drag a toothpick from the middle of the pie to the edges to create the flared effect. Repeat on the other pies. Serve warm. Makes 3
