A cookie pizza is exactly what it sounds like - a giant cookie made in a pizza pan topped with your favorite candies! The "crust" is a simple sugar cookie dough, the "sauce" is a fudge sundae sauce (trust me - it's delicious on cookies too!) and the "toppings" can be whatever you choose from your stash of Halloween candies. I did a wide assortment so that every bite has something different but you can customize with your favorites!

What does it taste like?

This is the ultimate indulgence that everyone should get to try at least once! The candies you choose to use will greatly affect the flavor, I tried to use a little bit of all my favorites so that the taste would have a little something of everything. It's like a sugar cookie topped with chocolates; AKA absolutely sinfully amazing!

all the ingredients needed to make a Halloween Cookie Pizza

The ingredients are the same as what you would need for basic sugar cookies, plus a few special additions:

  • butter - forms the base of the cookie dough
  • sugar - to add a bit of sweetness to the cookie dough
  • egg - to help hold the dough together
  • milk - to help the dough become a bit more "cakey" and moist
  • vanilla/salt - to add subtleflavor
  • flour - the structure of the dough
  • baking powder - to help with the rise of the dough
  • fudge sauce - to help the candies stick to the cookie and act as a "sauce"
  • Halloween candy - I used mars bars, hersheys cookies and creme, snickers, reese's peices,M&Ms, hershey's milk, and twix but you can use whatever you have/enjoy the most

This is so simple and fun to make you may want to make it year-round and not just on Halloween!

step one: in a small bowl, stir together

step two: cream together butter and sugar until well combined

step three: add egg, milk and vanilla to butter mixture and beat well, until light and fluffy

step four: stir in flour in 2-3 smaller additions until fully mixed in

step five: flatten cookie dough into a parchment lined 12" pizza pan as evenly as possible, then bake for 10 minutes, or until the cookie dough is puffed and starting to turn golden

step six: while the cookie dough "crust" is baking, unwrap the Halloween candies and chop them into smaller pieces (M&Ms and reese's pieces can stay whole)

step seven: spread the fudge sauce over the cooked cookie "crust", then top with the chopped candies

step eight: return the pizza to the oven and cook an additional 6-8 minutes, or until the fudge sauce is bubbling and the candies have melted slightly

step nine: allow to cool at least 30 minutes, then slice and enjoy! (you can top with some chocolate or caramel syrup if desired)

Can I use store-bought dough?

Yes! I always make my cookies from scratch because I do so much baking and always have the ingredients handy, but if you're in a hurry then some store bought cookie dough will definitely work, and it makes this a 3-ingredient recipe! Just follow the same cookie instructions and you can have a cookie pizza made in less than 20 minutes!

What Halloween candies should I use?

Your favorites! If you want one like what I have shown then you'll need M&Ms, reese's pieces, twix, hershey's cookies and creme, hershey's milk chocolate, mars bars, and snickers. I am dying to try one with kit-kats, rolo, and peanut butter cups though so if you have those leftover this year please try it and let me know!!

  • do not over-mix the cookie dough, only stir the flour in until just combined
  • try and make sure the cookie "crust" is as flat and evenly spread as possible to ensure even cooking
  • I used about 25 small Halloween sized candies, but you can use as many or as few as you'd like to build your ultimate cookie pizza
  • if you don't have a 12 inch pizza pan you can make this on a cookie sheet by flatteneing the dough into a large circle in the center of the pan
  • let the cookie pizza cool before you attempt to slice it, otherwise you will not get slices because it will be too soft to hold its shape
  • drizzle with some chocolate or caramel sauce right before serving to make it extra special!
