Cookie Pizza Crust:
Mix cookie dough as per package directions or per homemade cookie dough recipe (in NOTES)
Roll the dough out to ¼ inch thickness directly onto pizza pan . Make it a little thicker at the edges, as a pizza crust would be.
Bake pizza crust for 8-10 minutes (depending on the recipe you are using) in preheated oven or until edges begin to brown lightly. Cool completely. *It may not look perfect coming out, but it doesn't matter, as it will be covered up. If it puffs up while baking, just poke those spots with a toothpick or cake tester.
Spread 1 container ( about 1 cup) of chocolate cream cheese over the cookie pizza crust.
Preheat oven to 350°F. Arrange walnuts on a cookie sheet in a single layer.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes until fragrant, checking frequently.
In a separate bowl, mix pureed carrots (baby food) with whipped cream and 1 teaspoon cinnamon and spread over top of chocolate cream cheese.
Sprinkle crushed pineapple, raisins (optional), toasted walnuts and coconut over pizza.
Add Candied Carrots, if desired.
Mix ingredients together in small saucepan and heat over medium on stove top until thickened. Cool slightly and drizzle over pizza and serve. *This can also be chilled to serve at a later time.
