Other Pizza Cookie Love

Sugar cookie pizzas are a traditional all-time favorite that historically is made into one large pizza pan frosted them decorated with fruit.

This is easier no cutting, easier for guests to eat in a mini form, plus if anyone has food allergies you can change the toppings making this a self serve pizza bar.

You can use other favorite kinds of cookie recipes that also taste great with fruits such as: Snickerdoodles, Shortbread  Chocolate Chip Cookies, and also Chocolate Cake Mix Cookie dough any round cookies will work that are sturdy even prepackaged store-bought sugar cookies.

These pretty cookie pizzas are perfect for decorating to Patriotic holidays like Memorial Day, the 4th of July, and Veterans Day using red, white, and blue fruits, or any colors to match other holiday themes just by adding coordinating colorful fruits, tinted cookie dough or even frosting!
