Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Beat together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla, mix well. Lastly, add in flour and baking powder. If it’s too crumbly, use your hands to knead it together a few times.
  2. Form an 11 inch circle on a parchment paper lined baking stone or pizza pan. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool completely.
  3. Combine all cookie dough ingredients in a medium size bowl. Set aside.
  4. In a mixing bowl, whip together cream cheese, heavy cream and sugar until peaks form.
  5. Assemble your pizza: Spread sauce over cooled crust. Top with berries, white chocolate chips and chunks of cookie dough. Cut into wedges and serve.
