For a fun and colourful treat, make this easy Easter Egg Cookie Pizza. It’s a great quick last minute dessert and a fun activity to do with kids.
Hi there! It’s Amanda from Life at Cloverhill here with a simple yet delicious Easter treat – an easy Easter Egg Cookie Pizza. We’ve been busy over at our farmhouse with spring cleaning, prepping our flower beds for another season of fresh blooms and taking care of the sweetest little baby chicks.
It’s hard to believe that it’s already Easter this weekend and I cannot wait to take a nice break to spend time with the family. It’s our daughter’s very first Easter and while she is too young for Easter egg hunts, I still put together a little basket of goodies for her.
My favourite Easter treat has got to be those addictive little candy coated chocolate eggs. You know the ones I’m talking about. I just can’t resist them, which is why it only seemed right that I use them to create a colourful Easter Egg Cookie Pizza to share with some friends. This is a fun recipe to make that only takes a handful of ingredients and is easy enough to get the kids involved too.

KITCHEN TOOLS NEEDED:
Here’s what you’ll need from the store. The exact amounts are in the printable recipe card at the bottom of this post.
- Refrigerated mini chocolate chip cookie dough
- Cream cheese, softened
- Chocolate candy Easter eggs, chopped
The full instructions can be found in the recipe card below, but here are a few tips to make the recipe easier to make.
Breaking the cookie dough into small pieces makes it a lot easier to spread into the pizza shape.
Have you ever seen a cookie this big? It was almost therapeutic to press out all the dough into a big pizza shape. I didn’t have a 12″ pizza pan so I used my mega pizza pan with a sheet of parchment paper for easy cleanup.
The cookie came out perfectly golden…and it took all my willpower not to give it a bite.
A smooth layer of cream cheese frosting gives it some extra sweetness and makes it easier to keep the chocolate eggs on top.
