Are you ready for a Red, White, and Blue dessert? This 4th of July we’re firing up the grill and making a tasty red, white and blue cookie pizza to celebrate Independence Day!
We’re breaking out the pizza stone and making a HUGE cookie.
How do you celebrate the 4th of July with a cookie pizza? We usually try to catch the town fireworks, we’ve been lucky enough to live in places where we can see the local fireworks display from our house.
Aside from fireworks, the grill is always on!
Today, we’re going to show you how to grill up a giant cookie pizza to help with your patriotic celebrations!
I remember living in Colorado, we lived on a lake just south of Denver. We were able to see fireworks from all the surrounding areas, like Littleton, Denver, Lakewood – who knows where else.
There were at least 3 big shows we could see from our patio and of course, people along the lake were putting on their own fireworks display. It was really awesome!
Now, in the boondocks of New Hampshire, the town firework shows here are pretty -ahem- lame.
But, fireworks, as they should be, are legal in New Hampshire – so we end up either making our own fireworks display or catching the show a neighbor is putting on.
And nope – I’m not just talking about sparklers and pop toys, I’m talking about big booming thunderous and colorful aerial fireworks – fireworks that make your neighbors come outside to watch! 🙂
Are you ready to make a grilled dessert? Me too!
Here’s how you can make yourself a giant cookie pizza on the grill.
Of course, you can start from scratch by making your own cookie dough.
However, with all the 4th of July festivities and all the BBQing you’re already doing, you may just want to grab a 16.5oz package of refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough, as we did.
The first order of business for your red, white, and blue cookie pizza grilled dessert is making your cookie dough or unpackaging your refrigerated cookie dough.
Once your dough is ready to go, dust your hands with flour and knead your dough, then flatten it like you would a hamburger.
Form the dough to about 1 inch thick and create a thicker edge, as you see in the picture below.
Now, you can place your dough on the pizza stone.
Pro tip: Use parchment paper! It’s so much easier to remove the cookie from the pizza stone and transfer it to your serving dish.
Don’t push it all the way to the edge as it’s going to spread out when it heats up and you’ll end up with a serious mess to clean up!
Find complete instructions on the recipe card below.
Preheat your grill before putting your pizza stone onto the grill.
** Make sure this method works with your brand pizza stone, some cheap pizza stones may crack if you transfer your stone to a preheated grill!
Grill The Cookie Pizza
Preheat your grill to 350 degrees, or as indicated on your cookie dough package (like baking it in the oven).
Place the pizza stone on your preheated grill and bake for about 25-30 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
We removed the pizza stone from the grill and let the cookie cool completely on the pizza stone as to not break the cookie while we transfer it to the serving dish.
Now that we’ve baked our cookie on the grill using the pizza stone (YUM!) we’ll get out our toppings ready and have some fun!
We chose a whole lot of awesome Kraft products to use to top our 4th of July cookie pizza.
Start with Philadelphia Cream Cheese and finishing it off with Jet-Puffed Marshmallows,
Cool Whip as well as fresh strawberries and blueberries from the Walmart fresh produce section are great choices.
Start by mixing the Philadelphia Cream Cheese with sugar and vanilla, as outlined in the recipe below.
Once your cream cheese mixture is smooth, spread it evenly onto the cookie.
Next, we’ll be adding all the delicious goodness that will make this red, white, and blue cookie pizza amazing!
Slice your strawberries, pull your Jet-Puffed Marshmallows in half, get your Cool Whip and blueberries ready to go.
First, transfer your cookie pizza to a serving platter (Warning: do not cut the cookie on the pizza stone!)
Begin the assembly of your grilled dessert by alternating sliced strawberries with halved marshmallows around the outside edge of the cookie.
Next, add a few fresh strawberries to the center of the cookie and then fill the ribbon between the center strawberries and the strawberries and marshmallow row with fresh blueberries.
Once you’ve completed the decorating of your cookie pizza grilled dessert, it’s time to slice it up.
Similar to a pizza, use a sharp knife to carefully cut it into slices.
Once it’s ready to be plated, add a spoonful of Cool Whip to each slice and serve proudly!
This grilled dessert, red, white and blue cookie pizza will be the talk of the party, for sure!
