How to Make Sugar Cookie Pizzas Video

Share

I promise you, no arm twisting will be required when it comes to getting your kids to help you make these. But forget the kids, this recipe is so much fun, just make them yourself! I had the best time baking and decorating a batch before Kenya and Chloe came home from school last week. As soon as they got home and saw them on the kitchen counter there were shrieks of, "Mommy! What's that?!” The next day, I made some more with them and they had a blast.

I was inspired to create this recipe after seeing The Pioneer Woman's awesome Deep Dish Fruit Pizzas. My thought was to make a version that is a bit more kid friendly. I love that each child can get their own sugar cookie "pizza" to decorate with a healthier, protein-packed "frosting" and a variety of naturally delicious fruit toppings. And since almost any fruit will work, you can change your pizza with the season, using whatever happens to be fresh.

Whether for a birthday party, the holidays or just an after school treat, Sugar Cookie Pizzas are as fun to make as they are to eat. If you don't believe me… just watch the video to see how cool they are to make and eat!

    I think this will be such a hit at our upcoming family reunion. Easy to make a head and easy to transport. Thanks

    Absolutely adorable, and such a fun idea! I’ve done decorate-your-cupcake parties, and this is a great (probably more durable) variation!

    Is there something you can replace the honey with? My daughter is allergic but she would love these!

      The honey adds sweetness. So you can leave it out, or replace it with Agave, or a bit of powdered sugar.

    These look fantastic! Do you think that I could freeze the cookies (without toppings and icing)? If so, for how long? My son’s birthday is shortly after the birth of my second baby and I would like to be prepared :) Thanks for the wonderful recipes!

      Yes! Place them on a sheet tray in the freezer until they are completely frozen (about an hour) then transfer to a zip top freezer bag or other container. Freeze for up to 2 months. Defrost at room temperature.
