Strawberry Chocolate Truffle Pizza

Family Recipes

6 oz semisweet chocolate chips (I used Ghirardelli)
20 oz refrigerated sugar cookie dough (I could find only an 18-oz size, and it was fine)
1/4 c heavy whipping cream
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 pt fresh strawberries

Preheat oven to 400degF. Cut the cookie dough into -inch slices. Place in a foil-lined 14-inch round pizza pan with a -inch high rim. Press together to form a crust on the bottom. Bake at 8 to 9 minutes or until golden.

In a 2-cup glass measure, combine the chocolate chips and cream. Microwave on high 1 minutes, or until the chocolate is melted and smooth when stirred. Stir in the vanilla.

Rinse, drain, and hull berries. Cut in half lengthwise. Spread chocolate mixture evenly over baked crust. Beginning at the edge, arrange strawberries on the "pizza" in concentric circles, cut sides down, with the points toward the outside edge of the pan; cover chocolate completely with berries. Refrigerate until set, at least 20 to 30 minutes.

Makes 10-14 servings, depending on the size of the slices.

Recipe Notes

I must say that in general I am not a big fan of sugar cookies. However, the chocolatte pizza we had at Elizabeth's was simply awesome!
