What is a Pizookie?

I am so glad that you asked! It is the delicious, warm, gooey, melty, marriage of deep dish pizza and chocolate chip cookie.

So basically, HEAVEN!

Why is it called a Pizookie?

The creative minds from the restaurant where it started combined the two words that described the dish.

Ingredients Needed

Butter – Use unsalted butter so you can control the salt level.

Flour – Use all purpose flour for this recipe. I haven’t tested it with flour alternatives yet.

Sugar – This recipe uses a combination of light brown sugar and regular granulated sugar or white sugar.

Eggs – Use large eggs and bring them closer to room temperature for easier mixing.

Leavening Agents – These include baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

Chocolate Chips – I like semisweet chips but you can use milk chocolate or dark chocolate chips.

If you have a favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe, or a tube of store bought dough, feel free to use that in place of this one.

First: Preheat oven to 350F. Cream butter and sugars togethers until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs and vanilla until combined.

Second: Combine dry ingredients in a bowl and whisk to mix completely. Slowly add to the butter mixture, scraping down the sides often.

Third: Stir in chocolate chips, saving a handful for garnishing the top. Divide the cookie dough and press into the the four mini skillets. Garnish with reserved chocolate chips.

Fourth: Bake 20-30 minutes or until the edges are lightly golden brown and the center is still a little gooey. Serve warm with favorite toppings.

Can I make it without a skillet?

If you don’t have a cast iron skillet, you can use an oven safe skillet. You can also bake the dough in ramekins, muffin pans, or other small oven safe dish.

Can I make it in a different size skillet?

You can bake it in a 8,10, or 12 inch skillet. You will need to adjust the baking time to account for the thinner skillets.

Adjust the cooking time between 5-8 minutes depending on the size.

How to store it

Tightly cover the cookie and skillet in foil and let hang out on the counter at room temperature.

If you want to refrigerate it make it last longer, remove the cookies from the pans and store. The moisture in the fridge will cause the skillets to rust.

How long does it last?

The chocolate chip skillet cookie will last up to 4 days at room temperature if wrapped in plastic wrap or an air tight container.

How do you reheat leftovers?

If you happen to have any leftovers, take them out of the skillet and reheat them in the microwave. Take a slightly damp paper towel, cover the cookie, and heat for 10-15 seconds.

Tapas Tips & Tricks

  • Unsalted butter is the only butter I use, but if you use salted butter, be sure to check the salt levels of the dough before adding salt.
  • I only bake and cook with kosher salt. If you use other types of salt, be sure to check your dough for salt levels. You might need to adjust it in the recipe.
  • All-purpose gluten free flour works well too.
  • Use semi-sweet chocolate chips, but I like to use dark chocolate chips. Or chocolate chunks. You can also chop up a bar of baking chocolate. Just be sure to use 1.5 cups total.
  • Feel free to add other candy or toppings like peanut butter cups, M&M candies, or toasted nuts.
  • DO NOT OVER BAKE! Keeping a warm and gooey center is the best thing about this skillet cookie.
  • Top with ice cream – your favorite flavor-, hot fudge sauce, or caramel sauce.
