Chocolate Thin Mint Pizza Supreme


1 (18-ounce) package of refrigerated chocolate chunk cookie dough

1/2 package Girl Scout Thin Mints

1/2 cup white chocolate morsels

Vanilla ice cream, optional


Press cookie dough evenly in the bottom of an ungreased 12-inch pizza pan or a 13-by-9-by-2-inch baking pan. (Dough will barely cover the pan.) Break Thin Mints into halves or thirds; press cookie pieces into dough, covering evenly. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 18 minutes or until golden brown. Place white chocolate morsels into a small self-closing bag. Microwave the bag of morsels on medium-high (70 percent power) for 40 to 50 seconds or until melted. Snip one corner (about 1/8 inch) off the bottom of the bag. Hold bag tightly at top and drizzle white chocolate stripes over top of pizza. When cool, cut pizza into eight or 10 wedges. If desired, top each serving with a scoop of ice cream.

Makes: 8 to 10 servings
