  • How do you make a strawberry cookie pizza?

    To make this strawberry cookie pizza, start by rolling out the sugar cookie dough on a floured surface. Then, use a large round cookie cutter to cut out a circle of dough. Transfer the dough circle to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and press it down slightly.

    Bake the cookie dough for 10-12 minutes, or until it is lightly golden brown. Allow the cookie to cool completely before frosting.

    To decorate, spread a layer of vanilla frosting over the top of the cookie. Then, top with fresh strawberry slices. You can also add other toppings, such as mini chocolate chips or sprinkles.


    Berry-Loaded Pizza: You can add a diverse range of berries like raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries along with the strawberries. Chocolate Surprise Pizza: Substitute the balsamic reduction with a drizzle of melted dark chocolate for a luxurious dessert experience.
