I made this for a work party, and it was a huge hit! I did some research before making it and made the following modifications:
-Heat the oven to 350°F.
-Use 2 cups flour.
-Use 1/2 tsp. salt.
-Line the bottom of the pizza pan with parchment paper.
-Spoon the dough into the center of the pan, and use a silicone spatula to spread and round it out.
-Leave 2" of space all around between the dough and the edge of the pizza pan. This will prevent the dough from spilling over as it expands in the oven.
-Bake the cookie for 35-37 min., and turn the pan every 7 min. for an even bake all around.
-I bought 16" cardboard cake rounds at Michael's to use as the base for the cake. When you take the pan out of the oven, cool the cookie in the pan for 20 min. Then, place a cardboard round on top of the pan and turn the whole thing upside down. Remove the parchment paper, take another cardboard round, place it on top of the cookie, and turn the whole thing upside down again. Now your cookie will be right side up on its base.
-I bought Wilton icing tubes from Michael's to decorate the cookie. They were cheaper than the ones at the supermarket and better quality.
-If you need to transport or store your cookie overnight, ask your local pizzeria for a pizza box. They will usually give it to you for $2 to $3. Once the cookie is in the box, generously wrap the entire box in plastic wrap. This will keep the cookie from hardening.
-Use a pizza cutter to slice up the cookie.
