Forget sugar cookies and fruitcake! There’s a new holiday favorite in town: the holiday cookie pizza!
The cookie pizza is perfect for so many reasons.
Better Homes and Gardens has a basic recipe to follow.
Bake, decorate, enjoy!
You can’t mess them up. You make them your own. Make your own “pizza” crust using the recipe provided. Or buy the pre-made cookie dough from the store. Sugar cookie dough, chocolate chip cookie dough, gingerbread dough – your choice!
Spray a round pan with nonstick spray. Then lay out the pieces of cookie dough, flatten them, and spread it out so that it becomes your “pizza crust.” Then pop it in the oven.
Once it is finished, it’s time to start decorating! While the dough is still warm, you add chocolate chips. Then, take a spatula and spread the melting chocolate goodness all over every inch (think of it as the sauce for your pizza.) But, again, you can get creative here. You could use white chocolate chips, peppermint chips or butterscotch or cinnamon chips. It’s up to you!
Then, you can drizzle your pizza with melted peanut butter (think of this as the “cheese” layer of your pizza). Or, melted marshmallows!
Finally, top your holiday cookie pizza with candy or sprinkles. As you can see in the Pillsbury cookie pizza, holiday-colored candies make a perfect choice, but you could also use crumbled peppermint bark or shredded coconut!
