A little while back I made a stop motion video of myself and the kiddos making a chocolate chip pizza.  If you have not seen it yet, check it out;

Making the video was so much fun but not quite as much fun as eating the pizza!



  • 100 g Sugar
  • 100 g Soft Brown Sugar
  • 100 g butter, softened
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 210 g All purpose flour
  • 1/2 bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 salt
  • 150 g chocolate chips
  • Sweets for the toppings- we used Smarties, shredded coconut, chocolate chips and Skor pieces


  1. Preheat oven to 375 F/190 C and grease a 10" pizza pan (I used a slightly smaller, disposable tin foil tray in the video and placed some of the cookie dough in the freezer for another time)
  2. Put both sugars in a large bowl and cream together with the butter till light and fluffy.  
  3. Add the vanilla and egg and mix together.  Sift in the flour, salt and bicarbonate of soda (or cheat like me and simply use a balloon whisk to aerate the flour, salt and bicarbonate in another bowl- life is too short to sift flour!)  Mix everything together to form a stiff, smooth dough.
  4. Press the dough evenly into the pizza pan and bake for 12-15 minutes.  Leave in the pan to cool then place the cookie base on a plate ready for its toppings.
  5. Melt the 150 g chocolate chips on medium in the microwave or in a bowl over simmering water.  Leave to cool a little then pour over the surface of the pizza.  Make sure you leave a gap around the edge, just like pizza sauce.
  6. Get creative and top your pizza with a little or a lot of toppings!
