Description

This Chocolate Chip Cookie Pizza is a fun edible gift or a nice party dessert. Everyone loves chocolate chip cookies and this is just a different way to present your favourite chocolate chip cookie recipe.

Baking cookies gluten free requires learning some new baking tips. Simply substituting a gluten free flour mix for the wheat flour in an old tried-and-true family recipe will not likely give the results you had hoped for. But this shouldn’t stop you from learning to bake gluten free cookies.

In this recipe I use quinoa flour which is an excellent single flour substitute for many recipes including these peanut butter cookies. I was very excited when I discovered this although quinoa flour is expensive compared to many other gluten free flours and mixes. Over time I also learned that some people can’t tolerate quinoa or are allergic to it. For these reasons I have two other posts for chocolate chip cookies and chocolate chip cookies with teff. They both include baking tips in the recipe description so check them out if you haven’t mastered gluten free cookies yet. I make both of these recipes with my own gluten free flour mix but I haven’t tried them as a cookie pizza yet.

Variations for Chocolate Chip Cookie Pizza

One of my so called secrets about baking is that I make the same recipes over and over. You just need a small list of reliable favourites and vary the recipes and their presentation to suit the occasion. This Chocolate Chip Cookie Pizza is a perfect example of how to vary this basic cookie recipe. Here is the list I have printed in my dessert recipe binder.

Halloween version:

  • -2-3 types of mini GF chocolate bars, chopped
  • -M&Ms – orange, yellow, brown or purple
  • -Drizzle with melted dark chocolate or black chocolate candy

Valentine version:

  • -Chopped white chocolate
  • -M&Ms or cut up gumdrops – red, pink, mauve or white
  • -Drizzle with melted white chocolate

Christmas version:

  • -Chopped white chocolate
  • -M&Ms or cut up gumdrops – red and green
  • -Crushed candy canes
  • -Drizzle with melted white chocolate

Serving a Chocolate Chip Cookie Pizza

Whether I cut my cookie pizza in wedges or squares I love serving it in a pizza box. It is ideal for travelling and to me it goes with the name. Adding a sign on the outside of the box and inside the lid is perfect to include a birthday or thank you message and allergy information. Children love to participate so include their drawing when you can. 

Practise Makes Perfect

Baking is part science and part art. On top of that gluten free baking has new rules to learn. If this cookie pizza idea appeals to you I suggest you give it a try and learn how it works in your kitchen with your oven. If you are looking for some guidance read this post, Tips on Baking Gluten Free Cookies.

I’d love to hear in the comments below if you made a cookie pizza and how you served it.
