I have a thing for super cute recipes, have you noticed? This pizza cookies recipe is exactly that! It’s not even funny how easy it is to put together! The inspiration for this comes from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. We all know that they LOVE pizza (who doesn’t?), but I was putting together some party ideas and wanted to do a sweet version of pizza. Sweet cookie pizza was my answer! So if you have been looking for cookie that looks like pizza, you have totally come to the right place.
Using store bought shortbread cookies made these easy to make. Sandies cookies worked perfectly to make for a small and uniform look and I also like that it makes the pizza look “deep dish”, too. You could make your own from scratch if you want to add that extra step. It’s totally up to you. You could also make pizza on sugar cookies. All of these options will work as long as the cookies are dough-like in color.
For the super simple pizza toppings, here’s what I did:

Here is what I did to make pizza shaped cookies:
For the sauce: Strawberry Jam (seedless.)
For the cheese: Shredded Coconut (Sweetened) & Yellow Food Coloring. Mix 2 “parts” with a modest amount of yellow food dye to 1 part plain Shredded Coconut back to the mix to make a cheesy blended look.
For the pepperoni: Flat Red Fruit Snacks (like Fruit by the Foot). Use a clean hole puncher to make perfectly shaped “pepperoni”. I added about 7 per pizza cookie.
You could also add mini strips of green fruit snacks to look like peppers and all other types of fun.
So easy and so cute, as promised!
