What is a Pizookie?
A Pizookie is simply the perfect combination of everyone’s two favorite foods: pizza and a cookie! Pizza + cookie = Pizookie!
What’s so great about this dessert is that it is totally customizable! Just take your average chocolate chunk cookie dough and spread it into a cast-iron skillet or a pizza-sized sheet pan!
How to Make a Pizookie
Pizookies give brand-new meaning to the words simple and delicious!
- Cream butter and sugars together and add an egg.
- Add remaining ingredients and thoroughly combine (per recipe below).
- Press dough into prepared pan and bake until the center is just set.
Remove from oven and let sit for about 5 minutes before cutting (into wedges like a pizza) and serving. Don’t forget that scoop of ice cream!
Check out all these amazing ways to customize your own Pizookie!
Cereal Flavors: Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Cookies and Cream, Fruity Pebbles, Oreo cookies cereal (or just use crushed Oreos)
Sauces: A drizzle of hot fudge, caramel, or peanut butter!
Candies: Toffee bits, marshmallows! (Watch them melt on a pizookie fresh from the oven!) Extra chocolate chips! White chocolate, caramel, or butterscotch chips.
Sundae Toppings: Whipped cream, any and all scoops of your favorite ice cream, drizzles of hot fudge, cherry, or butterscotch.
Tips for Pizookies
Pizookies are super fun to make for slumber parties or other get-togethers!
No time? No problem! Use pre-made cookie dough, spread it in the pan of your choice, then bake!
Have an Air Fryer? Even easier! Place dough on a sheet of parchment paper and bake according to air fryer instructions. Top with a scoop or two of your favorite ice cream and serve with a copycat shamrock shake to wash it all down!
How to Store and Reheat
Pizookies are easy to store and reheat!
Refrigerator or Countertop: Put your Pizookie slices in a zippered bag or Stasher Bag and keep them at room temperature or in the fridge until you are ready to eat them again.
For Freezing: To keep them longer than a week, put them in a Stasher Bag or zippered bag labeled with the date on it and pop them into the freezer.
For Thawing: Let the Pizookie thaw at room temp until it’s ready to eat or reheat. Pop in the microwave for about a minute for reheating and don’t forget that scoop of ice cream!
