You can certainly use the DME to prime. It can leave a nice dense creamy head but also takes longer to carbonate as they are more complex sugars.

Corn sugar or dextrose is a little more common and carbonates just fine as well and IME takes less time

If you have the extract, just use that. Most here use corn sugar, but the extract will add a different mouth feel. I'd use what the directions say.
