Pizza Cookies

Although the first thing we think of when it comes to planning a pizza party is guests making their own pizzas, we’ve been working on creating other pizza party activity ideas.  We’ve been working on one that could take the form of dessert and would be fun for guests of all ages.  Pizza cookies are the perfect activity for a pizza party or even a creative new way to decorate sugar cookies.  If you do not want guests to make them as an activity at your pizza party, you could also send them home as a pizza party favor.  They would fit perfectly in these little white pizza boxes.

For these pizza cookies, we recommend pre-baking the circle sugar cookies.  Guests can then add their own sauce, cheese and other toppings as they wish.  They can enjoy them as part of their dessert or you can send the cookies home to eat later.  You can even make a tray of cookies to add to your pizza party dessert table.

4.  Add any other candy toppings that you would like on top of your pizza cookies.  Make different combinations for a variety of pizzas or create an everything pizza with all of the toppings. Our topping ideas are:

Swedish Fish – anchovies

Red M&Ms – pepperoni

Green Apple Rings – green peppers (cut them in half)

Red sugar or sprinkles – red pepper flakes

Mini marshmallows – onions

Milk Duds – sausage
