Everyone is talking about adulting, these days, and how hard it is to be responsible as an adult. I don’t know about all that, but I can tell you that mostly, it’s great to be a kid. This flatbread dessert with convince you of that.
For example, I consider s’mores to be one of my favorite desserts in the whole world. They have everything: chocolate, caramelized sugar, ooey gooey-ness, and crunch. I’m not alone in this belief, either; every kid in the world who has ever tasted one thinks the same thing.
My better half’s little boy was introduced to his first s’more when he was almost four. We were at the beach and built a big bonfire (he loved fires, like every adventurous little kid) and stashed all the ingredients safely in a tin to keep them as sand-free as possible. If that’s even possible, especially with a rambunctious four year old.
We had gone hunting for sticks earlier in the day, so we were ready, as soon as the fire was big enough. Armed with a stick and a marshmallow, Sam looked at us wide-eyed as he was told to stick the marshmallow carefully in the fire. (What?! I get to actually burn something??)
After a few tries (and quite a few burned or sacrificed marshmallows) we got the perfect s’more sandwiched between the chocolate and the crackers. In the glow of the sunset, that kid’s sticky, smiling face told us just what he was thinking. Yes. More. Now.
If you ever find yourself craving the perfect beachy, summertime dessert, you can make these flatbread s’mores from the safety and warmth of your very own kitchen. We dust flatbread with cinnamon and sugar (not sand) and bake it crisp, and, well, you know the rest. You don’t have to adult tonight. Tonight, just be a kid.

Indoor S’mores Pizza
- 2 Flatout Artisanal Pizza crusts
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 thin, meltable chocolate bars
- 1/2 cup marshmallow fluff
Preheat oven to 375°F. In a small bowl, combine the sugar and the cinnamon. Place flatbreads on a cookie sheet, and brush with melted coconut oil, then dust each side of the flatbreads with the cinnamon and sugar mixture. Bake at 375°F for two minutes, and remove from oven. Turn on the oven broiler to low. On one of the finished flatbreads, break up chocolate bars and arrange evenly. On the other, spread the marshmallow fluff about an inch from the edge of the flatbread. Return flatbreads to the baking sheet and place under the broiler, watching carefully, waiting for the chocolate to melt and the fluff to toast. You may have to move the baking sheet a bit to do this.
When toasted enough, remove from the oven and carefully put the two flatbreads together, forming a giant S’more. Cut or break into gooey, fabulous pieces.
