This is a playful riff on the classic margarita pizza, made with a crisp sugar cookie “crust,” strawberry jam and marshmallows. This would also be terrific with a peanut butter cookie crust.

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 stick unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 large egg, at room temperature
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1 cup strawberry jam with or without seeds
1 1/2 cup large marshmallows, some torn into smaller pieces
How to Make It
In a large bowl, whisk the flour with the baking powder, baking soda and salt.
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle, beat the sugar with the butter at medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in the egg and vanilla until incorporated, about 2 minutes. At low speed, beat in the dry ingredients until the dough just comes together. Gather and pat the dough into a 7-inch disk. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Preheat the oven to 375°. Spread the coconut in a pie plate and toast for about 10 minutes, until golden. Let cool. Line an inverted baking sheet or a pizza tray with parchment paper. Transfer the dough to the baking sheet. Bake in the center of the oven for 30 minutes, until golden around the edge. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
Meanwhile, preheat the broiler. Spread the strawberry jam over the cookie crust leaving a 1-inch border around the edge. Arrange the marshmallows over the jam. Broil 5 to 6 inches from the heat, until the marshmallows are golden.
Scatter the toasted coconut over the pizza, slice into wedges and serve.
The cookie dough can be frozen for up to 1 month.
