I was inspired by Millie's entry yesterday, and so while Phil was at work, I put together a "pizza" for dinner. It's been a while since we've been grocery shopping, so I had to improvise a little bit. The "crust" of the pizza is a giant cookie, made from a pumpkin cookie kit we bought from Cost Plus World Market back in the fall. The "sauce" was the frosting that had come with the kit, but for someone making their own dough, strawberry jam would work just as well. I made the "cheese" by putting about half a package of white chocolate chips in the food processor and letting it run for about 30 seconds, then spreading it over the surface of the cookie. Then I sprinkled dried cranberries and dates on the top to look like pizza toppings, and voila!
It was quite well received, although it took him a moment to understand why I was bringing him pizza for dessert. ;-)
