Tip

To make this step easier, break up the dough into large chunks and then flatten each piece with a floured rolling pin. Add the pieces to the pizza pan and then press them together with your fingers.

Step 2

Bake until the edges are golden brown and the center starts turning gold. The exact timing will depend on your recipe, so be sure to keep a close watch on the cookie.
