  4. Bake for about 15-20 minutes or until the crust is golden brown. Allow to cool.
  5. While crust cools, make chocolate sauce. In large bowl, cream confectioners’ sugar and cocoa.

  7. Top with your favorite treats like sprinkles, colored sugar, mini chocolate chips, gummy worms, silver balls, mini-marshmallows or M&Ms.
Note: To cut preparation time in half, use 1 tube of refrigerated sugar cookie dough. Pat into greased pizza pan and bake for 10-12 minutes.
