This Funfetti dessert pizza is a giant sprinkle cookie pizza with a marshmallow buttercream and topped with sprinkles and fruit.
Before we get into this ridiculously necessary desert, let’s talk pop culture for a minute. Or you can just skip to the recipe.
I might be the last person on the planet to see Beyonce’s VAM performance but the queen doesn’t disappoint. That might also be the longest VMA performance I’ve ever seen. I don’t have it in me to watch the rest of the show, so it will probably just sit on my DVR for the next 6 months.
Did you SEE who is the new Bachelor?? I guess my stint with that show if officially done. I refuse to engage. But don’t hold me to that. Just in case.
Nothing goes better with reality TV than a side of dessert like Funfetti Dessert Pizza.
I’ve been seeing way too many amazing desserts pizzas lately and I want in on that party! This is a giant funfetti cookie “crust” with a marshmallow buttercream and fresh berries. Just like any pizza, you can top this with your favorite toppings.
I tested the crust recipe a couple different ways. You definitely want to refrigerate the dough before baking. If you don’t refrigerate the dough, then the edges will bake a lot faster and I don’t think the cookie rises as much. If you refrigerate it first, it results is a bit of a loftier cookie and it ends up being softer.
When I rolled out the dough, I lightly floured it and placed it between two sheets of parchment paper. The helps prevent the dough from stick to the rolling pin. It’s also helpful if you are rolling it out on the counter, because you can flip it onto a baking sheet. I don’t own a round baking sheet, so I just used my sheet pan instead. Let the cookie cool completely on the baking sheet so it doesn’t break apart.
Don’t forget the sprinkles! You’ll need plenty of those.
For the frosting, you can make a small batch of my perfect vanilla buttercream, but I decided to add a little marshmallow cream for sweetness. It’s best if the butter is soft before adding the marshmallow crème so they mix together easier.
For the toppings, I added more sprinkles (duh!), some fresh strawberries and come crumbled cookies, which is optional. You can break off enough dough for a large cookie, bake it together with the pizza cookie and then crumble it on top of the pizza. It just add some more texture to the top of the cookie.
I will tell you that the berries should be added right before serving and they should be completely dry, otherwise the water from the berries will run over the frosting.
If you need another reason to make this dessert, it’s a heck of a lot quicker than making single cookies. So there’s that.
