Cookie pizzas strike again! I thought the sugar cookie pizza with strawberry icing couldn't be beat, but then this guy showed up. For all you out there that are team chocolate chip cookie over team sugar cookie, I have you covered. M&Ms also came to hang out making it that much better
I love a good cookie cake. When it comes to store bought cakes and you have the option of the sheet cake with overly sweet buttercream, or cookie cake, I go cookie cake. This M&M and chocolate chip flavor brings that classic cookie cake taste home!
It's made very similarly to the sugar cookie pizza. You want to make sure and under cook it a bit for ultimate doughy taste. I found 10 minutes to be perfect. And here is a tip I learned while developing the recipe to help make it extra pretty. Right after the pizza comes out, press a few extra chips and M&Ms into the surface. It's all about visual appeal first.
Chocolate M&M Cookie Pizza
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup white sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups flour
3/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup M&M's (plus a few)*
1 cup powdered sugar
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
splash of milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Using a large mixing bowl or round object, about 10 inches in diameter, trace a circle on the parchment paper. Flip the parchment paper over so you don't get any pencil or pen marks when you spread out the dough.
Cream butter and sugars in an electric mixer until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the egg and vanilla extract. Add flour, baking powder and salt, and mix on low until the dough comes together. Add your chocolate chips and M&M's and give it another quick stir.
With clean hands spread the dough out on the parchment lined baking sheet. Spread the dough out, filling the circle shape you drew. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Start on the low end. The key to yumminess in this cookie pizza is for it to be slightly underdone! You want to take it out just before it starts to brown. *Right after you take it out, lightly press a few M&Ms into the top of the pizza. This ensures for an extra pretty cookie! Then let it cool completely.
While the pizza cools, make your glaze. Using a hand mixer or whisk, whisk powdered sugar and vanilla, and a splash of milk until smooth and glossy. Add a touch more milk if you need to. It should be the consistency of Elmers glue. Using a spoon drizzle the glaze over the top in a swirly whirly pattern of your choice ;)
Cut with a pizza cutter and enjoy!
I love serving these cookie pizzas in an actual pizza box. It's a fun play on the name and actually a great way to transport it. A local pizza shop has been nice enough to give me a few of their to go boxes when I go in. I may have lied and said I needed them for a school project...but still. I bet if you asked they wouldn't mind sparing you a few!
