Deep Dish Cookie Pizza
Our Family's Favorite Dessert Recipe
This deep dish cookie pizza recipe is an easy dessert my mother found on a Cool-Whip recipe card years ago, I believe. It is high on our list of family favorites. We have since modified it some but the basic ingredients remain similar to that original sweet treat. I like it because it has fruit on it and to me that almost makes it healthy.
I say almost because the base crust of this wonderful fruit tart is a layer of sugar cookie dough.
It is colorful and an easy to make recipe that would go great in any warm weather get together. A combination of kiwi, strawberry, and bananas are the fruits topping this particular version, but you can use any blend of fruits you have on hand.
It is sure to be a hit and the best part?
It is even better the second day - If you have any leftovers!
I absolutely love deep dish cookie pizza the next day for breakfast!
Sugar cookies are always a fun treat but when you use the dough as a pie crust the fun is just getting started!
You Will Need A Deep Dish Pan - For Baking This Dessert
Instead of a cookie sheet I used a deep dish pan. Mash in a layer of pre-made sugar cookie dough and bake at 350 degrees for about 18 minutes. When it is ready it should be light brown on the edges like a cookie would be. Set this aside and let this gigantic cookie cool.
Pyrex is the most durable of bake ware. It won't rust out, corrode, and if you drop it it may make it through the incident and bounce. Things won't stick to it and clean up is easy. Dishwasher safe!
Cookie Pizza Shopping List - From The Market
You are going to need a few fresh ingredients for this cookie pizza so I prepared a little shopping list for your convenience.
- Pre-made Sugar Cookie Dough
- Whipped Topping
- Cream Cheese
- Pint Of Strawberries
- 2 Bananas
- 3 - 4 Kiwi Fruits
- 2 cups sugar cookie dough Or 1 Lg roll of pre-made sugar cookie dough
- 1 1/2 c whipped topping
- 1 package of cream cheese
- 6 large strawberries - sliced
- 2 kiwi fruits - peeled and sliced
- 1 large banana - sliced
- OPTIONAL: Grated chocolate OR strawberry ice cream syrup
- In a 9" x 9" lightly greased cake pan mash the cookie dough down and cover the bottom of the pan. Let about 1" set on the sides like a pie crust. Bake at 350 degrees for 18 minutes or until edges are golden brown and the middle is firm. Set aside and let cool.
- Add the package of cream cheese to a bowl and mix in the whipped topping. Blend with a whip or fork until smooth. Set this aside until the cookie crust cools. Layer the top of the cookie with this mixture until the bottom is covered with about a 1/4 inch of topping.
- Staring with the kiwi fruit, layer the cookie pizza. Add chocolate sprinkles or a drizzle of strawberry syrup and enjoy!
