DIRECTIONS

  • To bake the CRUST: Grease a 10" pie pan with butter or cooking spray, then smoosh the cookie dough into the pan so that it lays flat.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes at 375-400 or until no longer raw-- but not a fully set cookie.
  • Let cool on a wire rack and carefully extract onto a serving plate or platter.
  • To make the SAUCE-- thaw the frozen fruit out first by leaving the bag in the fridge for about 20 minutes ahead of time. You can also use fresh berries which are a superior topping, but frozen ones actually work better for the sauce.
  • Put the thawed berries into a food processor and pulse a few times until the berries are well chopped up but not quite liquefied yet.
  • Add the sugar and pulse until well blended-- a thick sugary strawberry paste should form.
  • Put 1/2 cup water into a saucepan.
  • Scoop this paste into the saucepan, mixing with the water. On low heat, gently whisk. Whisk in the cream of tartar.
  • You may need to add a bit more water-- the heat particles will disperse the ingredients and it should thicken up to form a nice glaze. Just let it cook on low heat for about 10-15 minutes, don't bring to a boil!
  • Let the sauce cool for a while. Thus you might actually want to bake the crust during the cooling stage.
  • Spread the sauce/glaze evenly onto the gigantic sugar cookie/your pizza crust. If you have leftover glaze, it makes a nice glaze for cheesecakes and tarts!
  • Grate the white chocolate onto the the "pizza" so that it resembles shredded cheese.
  • Top with sliced strawberries ("pepperoni") and almonds ("mushrooms"). That's just what I like, feel free to use other toppings! (Like blackberries as "olives".).
  • Chill for at least 2 hours prior to serving. I doubt there'll be leftovers. ;).
