Ingredients

Sugar Cookie Pizza

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1/4 cup shortening you can omit the shortening and use all butter if preferred
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt

Buttercream Frosting

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/4 teaspoon butter flavoring optional
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract I use 1 teaspoon of vanilla if not using butter flavor
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure almond extract
  • 1/2 pound powdered sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/2 Tablespoon meringue powder
  • 1 Tablespoon water or milk to thin if necessary

Instructions

To make the Sugar Cookie

  • Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease a baking stone with Pam. Set aside.
  • Beat the butter, shortening, eggs, and vanilla together in a large bowl.
  • Blend in flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • Spread the entire batch (without chilling it first) out on a lightly greased pizza stone, mine is brand new remember, you have to season it.
  • Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 14 minutes. I left it on the stone and allowed it to cool overnight.

To make the Buttercream Frosting

  • Beat together butter, shortening, and salt on low for about 5 minutes.
  • Add extracts {or liqueurs} and beat to combine. Add half of the powdered sugar and the meringue powder, mix together.
  • Add 1/2 cup of powdered sugar at a time until you reach your desired consistency. Add a little milk or water, a teaspoon at a time if necessary to thin the frosting. Continue mixing on low for several minutes to create a light and fluffy frosting.
  • If you would like to color the frosting, add gel coloring a little at a time. Beat together until thoroughly combined.
  • Spread the frosting over the entire cookie and sprinkled pretty white jimmies on top.
