Calumet Editor Yasmine Cruz shares easy recipes students can prepare on a budget.

Sugar Cookie Pizza


½ cup unsalted butter, softened

1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract,

½ cup granulated sugar

3 tablespoons light brown sugar

1 large egg, room temperature

1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon cream of tartar

½ teaspoon baking soda

1 pinch salt

6 oz cream cheese, room temperature

⅓ cup powdered sugar

⅓ cup chocolate hazelnut spread

Optional toppings

1 cup fresh berries

peanut butter

mini pretzel

mini marshmallow

graham cracker, chopped

1 cup chocolate chunk


Preheat the oven to 350˚F . Spray a pizza pan with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, mix the butter with 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract until light and fluffy.

Add the granulated sugar, then the brown sugar, and mix until well incorporated.

Add the egg and stir until thoroughly mixed.

Using a fine mesh sieve, sift the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt into the dough. Combine with a spatula until evenly mixed.

Spread the cookie dough in an even layer in the prepared pan. Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes, then bake for 15-18 minutes until lightly golden. Let cool.

In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and remaining ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract until well incorporated.

Spread half of the frosting onto a quarter of the cooled cookie and the other half on the diagonally opposite corner.

Frost the other quarters with the chocolate hazelnut spread.

Decorate with your favorite toppings.


*If you don’t wanna make the cookie from scratch, just use packaged sugar cookie dough.
