Part pizza part cookie all pizookie (I love saying that out loud) all magnificent. Chocolate chip cookie pizza isn’t anything new or groundbreaking, but it certainly deserves a spot on our dessert tables and certainly will be the forerunner for any and every party I bake for this summer. Because it feeds a crowd and because it’s a freaking pizza that is a cookie!!!

I’ve baked 3 of them within the past few weeks. Twice to test things out on a couple different pizza pans and one this weekend. We celebrated my niece’s birthday over the weekend–by camping in the backyard heck yeah– and I made a cookie pizza complete with rainbow sprinkles and candles for the birthday girl. Served it all sliced up on paper plates with milk for dipping. The milk was all Kevin’s idea and while I wanted to serve the slices with vanilla ice cream (keep scrolling!), I’ve gotta hand it to him– they’re the perfect shape for dunking right into your cup of milk.

Kevin takes milk and cookies very seriously. He literally sprinted inside to get the milk faster than he’s ever run before. Love that man.

I’m excited to share this chocolate chip cookie pizza recipe with you today because it’s bringing an older recipe back to life. These soft chocolate chip cookies, published almost 4 YEARS AGO OMG, hold a very special place in my heart. They’re incredibly soft in the centers and all around the edges thanks in major part to the cornstarch and higher ratio of brown sugar to white sugar. But the bonus is that you can keep the cookies in the oven just a few minutes longer to obtain that crispier edge– all while the centers remain soft. Cookie miracles, they are.

And the same goes for a cookie pizza too. You can bake just a few minutes longer for a crispier slice o’ cookie!

Using this cookie dough to make a cookie pizza is 99.9% easier than using it to make cookies. It cuts down on about 2 hours of your time because (1) you don’t have to chill the cookie dough and (2) you don’t have to roll any individual cookies. All you do is make the cookie dough and press onto a pizza pan. And since the cookie pizza is a thin layer, it takes a short amount of time to bake and a short amount of time to cool.

So yes, a pizza pan is the quickest way to get your chocolate chip cookie fix. Who knew! Unless you bought baked chocolate chip cookies from the Wegman’s bakery and if so, I will never ever judge you because they are the best chocolate chip cookies on the planet. Wegmans bakery, WHAT is your secret!!

There were 12 of us on Saturday night and only 1 slice leftover. It was the perfect ending to our BBQ because a slice dunked in milk was big enough to satisfy, but not quite as filling as a sugarbomb piece of birthday cake.

Ice cream, chocolate syrup, and sprinkles may tell a different story however.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Pizza

  • Author: Sally
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 25 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: serves 10-14
  • Category: Cookies
  • Method: Baking
  • Cuisine: American

Description

Easier than rolling individual cookies and no cookie dough chilling. Chocolate chip cookie pizza is perfect for sharing!


Ingredients

  • 2 cups (250g) all-purpose flour (spoon & leveled)
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch (aka cornflour)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup (1.5 sticks or 170g) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 3/4 cup (150g) packed light or dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup (50g) granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 and 1/4 cup (225g) semi-sweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Lightly grease your pizza pan.
  2. Whisk the flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt together in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  3. Using a hand mixer or a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream the butter and both sugars together on medium speed until smooth, about 2 minutes. Add the egg and beat on high until combined, about 1 minute. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl as needed. Add the vanilla extract, then mix on high until combined.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix on low until combined. With the mixer running on low speed, add the chocolate chips. Dough will be thick and soft.
  5. Transfer the cookie dough to the pizza pan and flatten out with your fingers or a rubber spatula until the edges reach the sides (or just about to the sides).
  6. Bake for 22-25 minutes or until puffed and lightly browned on top. If you want the cookie pizza a little crispier on the edges, bake for a couple extra minutes. Allow the cookie pizza to cool on the pan set on a wire rack before slicing. Cover leftovers and store at room temperature for 2-3 days or in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

Notes

  1. Make Ahead & Freezing Instructions: Prepare cookie dough through step 4. Cover dough tightly with aluminum foil or plastic wrap and chill for up to 3 days in the refrigerator or freezer for up to 3 months in the freezer. If freezing, thaw in the refrigerator before continuing with the next step.
  2. Just for Fun: Right after I take the cookie pizza out of the oven, I press a few chocolate chips into the top while it’s still warm. This is really just for looks. And extra chocolate!
  3. Birthday Cookie Cake: I mix in about 2/3 cup (127g) of sprinkles with the chocolate chips for the birthday version pictured below. Be sure not to mix nonpareils (the little balls) into the cookie dough because they may bleed their color. They’re perfect for sprinkling on top before or after baking though.
  4. Special Tools: 12-inch pizza pan (one with a lip so there’s no spill over the edges– I like this one and this one)

Keywords: cookie pizza, chocolate chip cookie pizza

For a denser, chewier chocolate chip cookie pizza you can use my chewy chocolate chunk cookie dough instead. Same bake time, same oven temperature. The result is definitely a richer tasting cookie pizza, but I find the pizza spreads and thins out more because of the melted butter and, as a result, the slices aren’t as compact.

Happy birthday, Trinity!

  1. Hi sally! Your recipes always turn out so yummy and I was inspired to make a blog with food and more. If you could check it out and maybe even leave a comment on how it could be improved that would be awesome!!!!!!! Also, how did you make your food blog successful? I love making blog posts but I don’t know how you get the attention of readers. Thank you so much! This is my website: https://justlivenlovenlaugh.wordpress.com/

    1. Hi Isha, congrats on your food blog! I’ve written a bunch of posts on the topic… I have so much to say because I know this is a scary and overwhelming process… so be sure to sift through. I also have podcasts linked in the posts as well, where I discuss growing a food blog.

  2. OH MY GOSH, i’m saving this recipe and making it as soon as possible! How could I not? A cookie pizza… I’m all about that life!

  3. Sally, I made the dough today and plan to take and bake it after we get to our mountain destination.  I confess I tasted the dough.  Oh, my WORD, brown sugar and butter!!!!!  Can’t wait to taste the finished product, and so much easier and faster when there are grandkids running around.  Thank you for inspiring me once again!

    1. I don’t know how it’s possible but the baked cookie tastes even better than the cookie dough! Hope they all loved it.

  4. Hey Sally! Question: does this cookie spread much? I have a 12 1/2 inch baking sheet with about a quarter inch rise. Will the cookie spill over the edges?

  5. Hi Sally, could I batch bake these pizookies (❤) and freeze them? Do you think that would work?
    Thanks so much,

    Amanda 

  6. Great recipe – great results. I nearly had a disaster….. when I read the recipe and it said use a pizza tray i thought what a great idea to use something that up until now only cooks one thing BUT my pizza tray has holes in it. Spotty mess on the work top :o( Worse still if i hadn’t thought to put some tin foil under it in the oven my cookie dough would have made a bid for freedom and ended up burnt onto the bottom of the oven. Can you think of anything worse than a cookie that has gone missing while it was cooking (i know they vanish from the biscuit tin) Next time i will click the link to see what type of pan you use in the recipe.

  7. Hi Sally! I don’t think my pizza pan had enough of a lip. My cookie pizza spread a lot and ended up spilling over while it was in the oven! I should have listened better, haha. My question is: Do you think if I refrigerated the dough for a while and made it so that the dough didn’t go all the way to the edge that that would solve the problem?

  8. So, what’s the difference between the cookie pizza and your cookie cake? I’m trying to decide which to make and would love to know how you compare them? Thanks!

    1. Hey Emily! The cookie pizza is larger and therefore much thinner. Since it’s thinner, it’s a little crispier too. And feeds more people! Depends how many people you want to feed and how thick you want the cookie.

  9. I made this the other day. I ended up buying a 12 in wilton pizza pan. Dimensions are 12x.625 in. The cookie pizza came out perfect. I can see how it is meant for like a party, ect. I am going to add sprinkles and make one for my daughters 15th birthday! She loves your recipe’s Sally : )

  10. I just made this and it is one of the best things I’ve ever tasted!  Served warm with vanilla ice cream.  I’m 10 and I love all of your recipes and my mum likes some of your healthier recipes – she devours your Hit The Trail Granola!  

  11. I did this and it’s indeed so yummy. My kids call it the cookie cake as it was dense chewy and soft in the centre and slightly with a crunch in the sides. It absolutely whipped everyone away. I will also do it again with some rainbow sprinkles as it’s my daughter’s 3rd bday soon. It was a trial for me and we loved it. It’s so different to a normal cake and that’s what I am.

  12. Hey i made this and the results took me in the air, never have i ever made a cookie turned out soo tasty, everyone at my place just loved it. Thank you soo much for the best CCC recipe :p. And one question, how and where shall the cookie pizza be stored if incase few is left out ?

  13. Yum!!! I only baked for 15 minutes and it was perfect. I was out of vanilla and google said I could sub maple syrup.  Made the day before and refrigerated.  So easy to pull out and bake. Delish with vanilla ice cream. 

  14. Oh my! I stumbled across this pic on my Intstagram and decided to make it on Friday; Since then I have made 2 more of these – one with peanut butter added and another with chopped chocolate. they are SO yummy and so easy to make. Was it seriously national cookie day over there? I am all the way in Australia and cannot believe you might have a national day for cookies! LOVE it!

    1. There’s a national day for almost any food, it’s crazy!! This Wednesday is national smores day 🙂 I’m glad you love this cookie pizza!

  15. Ahhhh I ADORE cookie pizza! I covered mine in Nutella and sprinkled some mini marshmallows and m&m’s on mine (may as well go all out, right?) and it was absolutely amazing! 

  16. I love this recipe even before I try to make it because it has measurements in METRICS! I still don’t understand how people can measure butter with cup, and I’ve been baking for years.
    Thank you.
    Anthea. 

  17. Is it possible to make a smaller sized pizza cookie? Say if I halve the recipe how long should I bake the cookie dough for? 

  18. Does it have to be refrigerated or could it be stored in an airtight container overnight? Just not convinced my fridge has room!

  19. Hi sally, I love your recipes n they always reach beyond expectations.i would like to make these pizza cookies but in smaller regular size cookies because it’s for a Christmas gift for my clients.please help me with the amount of dough n time of baking tht I need to follow.
    Although I have made these pizza cookies twice earlier n they were a super hit with my family n friends 

    Please reply asap
    Sneha 

  20. Hi Sally LOVE your recipe one question does it have to be egglands best egg or can we put in an ordinary egg will it impact the recipe? Please reply ASAP 
    Kind regards Gloria

  21. Your recipes are my go-to for birthday treats. Thank you for sharing!
