Directions:

1. Roll out store-bought (or homemade) sugar cookie dough to 1/4″ thick and cut out with a Mickey Mouse cookie cutter. If you don’t have one, you can use a large circle cookie cutter for the head, and a small one for the two ears.

2. Roll out thin strands of the leftover cookie dough, and layer around the edge of the cookies to form the crust of the “pizza.” It doesn’t have to be one continuous strand, as you can smooth out any seams with your fingers. 

3. Bake your cookies per your recipe’s instructions, then cool completely before decorating. 

4. To make the “buffalo mozzarella,” cut the mini marshmallows in half, then put them in the oven to grill for a few minutes until they are slightly toasted. Cool completely before handling.

5. Using a small brush, dust some cocoa powder onto the “crust” of the cookies to add a little more depth and texture. 

6. Next, make the royal icing. Mix sifted sugar and meringue powder in a large bowl or stand mixer. Then add warm water and lemon juice (or other flavor of choice), and mix on medium speed for about 5 minutes.

7. Then divide into different bowls and add food coloring to each (red, yellow, green, and black). The icing used for the peppers and olives will be in the current icing consistency. However, for the cheese, pepperoni, and sauce, you will need to gradually add water to thin it out. The final consistency should be quite runny, similar to that of honey.​​ Once desired consistency is reached, add the icing to piping bags and snip a small hole at the bottom.

8. Spread a thin layer of red icing on the base of the cookie as the “sauce” and leave to dry. 

9. Pipe on yellow icing as the “cheese,” then stick on the marshmallow “mozzarella.” Leave to set for 2 hours. 

10. Pipe on the “olives” with the black icing, “pepperoni” with red icing, and “peppers” with green icing.

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 15 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
