This year we decided to make a dessert that looked like a pepperoni pizza, and I have to say it was - by far - the easiest of the April Fool's desserts we've made.
I made two batches of sugar cookie dough then rolled it out on a pizza pan covered with parchment paper. I baked it in a 350 degree oven and started checking it at about 12 minutes.
After the cookie cooled, I added buttercream frosting tinted red for the sauce and a few lines of white for cheese. That part was completely unnecessary; I thought it might help add something to the background of the design but it turned out I couldn't see any of it in the end and should have just skipped that step.
Ben and I shredded white chocolate and added it to the top of the cookie pizza for the cheese. We started out by shredding it into a bowl and sprinkling it over the top but quickly realized this was a mistake. Half of the shredded chocolate was melting on our fingers and making it hard not to end up with clumps of chocolate on the pizza that looked very un-cheeselike. So we started shredding directly onto the pizza and that worked much better.
We used a small circle cookie cutter to make pepperoni pieces out of fruit roll ups and added those on top of the cheese.
I cut the cookie with a pizza cutter to make eight pieces initially, but they were huge when you think about what they are - a slab of cookie covered in frosting and chocolate. I mean, just because *I* can eat that much doesn't mean anyone should.
So I went back through and cut them to 16 pieces to take for dessert to Easter dinner. Not very Easterish, I know. But what are we supposed to do when the two holidays fall so close together?
