Cut your refrigerated sugar cookie dough into ¼-inch slices. Arrange them in a greased pizza pan (or baking sheet with parchment paper), pressing them down so they cover the pan with no gaps.

Bake the crust for about 12 minutes or until golden. Let it cool completely before piping the icing on top, else it will partially melt and soak in, and that will look messy. So ensure the crust is totally cool before you begin. An icing spatula is handy to smooth it out evenly.

Now it’s time to get creative, arranging your candy toppings on the holiday cookie pizza. The peppermints make a nice border and then you can sprinkle crushed cookies, sprinkles and M&Ms over the pizza.

Can you make this Christmas dessert pizza in advance?

Leftovers will be fine for up to 5 days, meaning you can definitely make your Christmas sugar cookie pizza ahead if you want to. I can’t guarantee you’ll be able to resist snacking on it in the meantime though!

What other kinds of icing and candies would work?

Now the nice thing about this Christmas sugar cookie pizza is you have creative freedom with what you add. Skittles, M&Ms, other kinds of green and red candies – any of those would work.

You can also vary the icing, although something white in colour would work best, since it contrasts with the red and green colour decorations. If you’re making these with the kids, maybe have them pick their own toppings.

Can you make a dessert pizza without a piping bag?

Since you don’t have to pipe anything fancy, just cover the pizza crust, you can simply snip the corner off a Ziploc bag and use that. If the icing doesn’t look even, just use a spatula to smooth it out. You don’t need it to look perfect though.
