Let’s get grilling! This is a red, white and blue grilled cookie pizza made on the BBQ grill, on a pizza stone!
Are you ready for a Red, White and Blue Cookie Pizza? 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 baking our red, white and blue cookie pizza on a pizza stone on the grill. And yes, we’re going to show you how you can make your own red, white and blue cookie pizza using some great Kraft products and fresh produce found at your local Walmart.
Red, White & Blue Cookie Pizza
How do you celebrate the 4th of July? 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!
Hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken, pizza, veggies and yes, even cookie pizza desserts! Today, we’re going to show you how to grill up a giant cookie pizza, scratch that, a giant red, white and blue cookie pizza to help you with 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!
Giant Cookie Dessert Pizza
Are you ready to fire up your grill and get your 4th of July celebration on? 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, but 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, like we did.
The first order of business for your red, white and blue cookie pizza 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, like you see in the picture below.
Now, you can place your dough on the pizza stone. 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!
Preheat your grill to 350 degrees, or as indicated on your cookie dough package. Place the pizza stone on your preheated grill and bake for about 25-30 minutes or until 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 low 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.
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 the cream cheese mix evenly onto the cookie pizza. Next we’ll be adding all the delicious goodness that will make this red, white and blue cookie pizza absolutely 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!) Let the red, white and blue cookie pizza assembly begin!
Begin the assembly of your red, white and blue pizza stone cookie by alternating sliced strawberries with halved Kraft Jet-Puffed 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 red, white and blue cookie pizza, it’s time to slice it up. Similar to a pizza, use a sharp knife to carefully cut your cookie pizza into slices. Once your red, white and blue cookie pizza is plated, add a spoonful of Cool Whip to each slice and serve proudly!
This grilled red, white and blue cookie pizza will be the talk of the party, for sure!
