"Pizza" Sugar Cookies

I made these cookies last weekend for the Pizza Party with Gourmet Friends. I wasn't sure how they would turn out, but they looked awesome and tasted even better.

Old Fashioned Sugar Cookies
(AKA Pizza Cookies)
1 Cup Soft Butter or Margarine

1½ Cup Sugar
2 Eggs
3 Tsp Vanilla

3½ Cup Flour
2½ Tsp Baking Powder
½ Tsp Salt

Food Color

“Toppings” (I used assorted sprinkles, cranberries and almonds and chocolate covered peanuts)


1) Beat butter or margarine, sugar, eggs and vanilla until light and fluffy.
2) Add dry ingredients (flour, baking powder and salt) and mix thoroughly.
3) Separate dough into two amounts and add food dye. Wrap in wax paper or plastic wrap and chill (at least one hour).
4) Preheat oven 400 degrees
5) Pinch off small amounts of the two colors of dough and press together to make little “pizzas.”
6) Bake for 6-8 minutes or until done.

7) Let cool – Ice and add toppings.

I love this idea!! It would be also really fun to do with a youth group or boy scouts (you can tell where my thinking is).

Thanks for the great pics, too!
