This is The Quickest Way to Cookies

Homemade chocolate chip cookie pizza is quick and easy– it’s a great dessert to make when pressed for time. Only one hour stands between you and homemade cookies (in pizza form)! You’ll save lots of time by using my soft chocolate chip cookies dough to make today’s cookie pizza instead of individual cookies. There’s no dough chilling or rolling the cookie dough into individual balls. (You don’t need to chill the dough for my chocolate chip cookie bars or chocolate chip cookie cake either.) We’re simply making the cookie dough and pressing it into a 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.

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. Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies Dough: For a denser, chewier chocolate chip cookie pizza you can use my chewy chocolate chip cookies 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Special Tools: 12-inch pizza pan (one with a lip so there’s no spill over the edges– I like this aluminum pizza pan and this aluminized steel pizza pan)

  1. love the recipe but i dont have a pizza tray or anyway to gt one fast! could i just bake it on a normal baking tray lines with baking paper?

  2. Does this have to be baked in a pizza pan. I’m planning to divide the dough in two and make two smaller cookie pizzas. Will this work or will it spread too much?

    1. A pizza pan is best as it helps the dough keep the shape. I fear without a circular pan– and as 2– the cookie pizzas won’t hold the best shape.

  3. Just finished making this wonderful chocolate chip cookie pizza for my mom’ s b-day. I’m only serving it tomorrow though so it safe to leave on a pizza pan? Or should I slice it & put it on a regular serving dish? Thank you:-)

  4. Hey all, no need for a special pan.  I did it on a rectangular cookie sheet lined with a silicone mat and made the edges slightly thicker and packed the edge like you would a hamburger.  it baked perfectly. Save the $$ on the pan!

  5. I agree with Chef Dad! Save money and use what you have. I baked it on a pizza stone (no lip) and it turned out beautifully! It spread just a little, less than an inch. Thanks for the recipe. 

    1. Did you preheat your stone? 
      I’m wondering if a preheated stone would make it spread more, or would seal the bottom and prevent too much spreading?

  6. Is this good frozen and then thawed to decorate. We have a big fundraiser coming up and I would like to do the prep of baking and then decorate several the evening before. Have you tried freezing?

  7. two questions – can you make it with crisco and not butter? and do you have a recipe for a sugar cookie pizza cookie?

  8. I have an 8″ flan pan with a removable bottom. Think I could get 2 smaller pizzas out of this or would they be two thin? I dont want them hard as a rock. How long shall I bake so they aren’t hard? 

  9. Chefrimmel says:

    Can I use a pizza pane with small holes in the bottom? 

    1. I don’t recommend that.

    2. I do because that’s what I have. I just line it with parchment paper.

  10. I made this for a first day of school giant cookie I do each year.  I thought I grabbed unsalted butter at the grocery store but didn’t and ended up using salted and still tasted great.  Will be my go to giant cookie recipe!! 

  11. This is an amazing recipe! Making it for the second time for my boyfriend’s daughter…she love it!

  12. Hi! Will this work in a ginger bread man pan? 

    1. It depends on the measurements of the pan.

  13. I’m making a giant cookie using a pizza pan but every time I make cookies they always end up hard, is there any tips that I can get to keep it soft it’s for a friends birthday

  14. it looks like a wonderful recipe, I haven’t tried it yet but my idea was to make a pizza cookie for my class with different slices because we are learning fractions right now!!! thanks for so many good recipes!!!!

  15. adela uribe says:

    how much dough to make a 9 inch pizza and for how many minutes thank it is for me and my husband thank you

    1. Hi Adela! I suggest making this chocolate chip cookie cake instead. Use a 9-inch cake pan or pie dish.

  16. adela Uribe says:

    Hi Sally dose making the pizza in a dark pan or light pan do you have to change the temperture thank you

  17. adela Uribe says:

    hi sally have you made this in light pan or dark this recipes is only for a 12 inch thank you

  18. Can I put frosting on it and what type of frosting

  19. We had fun just putting the dough onto the pizza pan and divided it up and added our own favorite toppings (caramel chips and white chocolate and semisweet and milk chocolate chips) to our portion of the pizza. Weighed the ingredients and followed recipe, but needed to take out at 20 minutes as it was getting too dark (yes I have 2 oven thermometers ) and though we enjoyed making this together, the batter itself once cooked yielded a very DRY cookie…no wonder you dunked it in milk or added ice cream..even in the middle the cookie was dry…definitely not a keeper! Pass on this one if you need to budget your money as there are plenty of better cookie recipes on this site that won’t waste your hard earned money…

  20. Planning to make this cookie tomorrow.
    Wondering if I line the pizza pan with baking paper is it easy to remove the cookie and serve in a pizza box?
    Making it for a birthday so I would like the birthday boy to cut this cookie pizza about 6/7hours after cutting it? Is this possible or will the pizza harden and be hard to cut ?

    1. Hi Ellen! You can line the pan with parchment paper and lift the parchment paper + cookie up to transfer to a pizza box. If covered tightly, it will not harden too much at all.

  21. Susan Johnson says:

    I followed all of the instructions AND THE COOKIE CAME OUT BURNT, I put the oven at the right temperature and even had to take it out before the recommended time, so frustrating since I spent so long making it.

    1. Hi Susan! I wonder if the cookie dough was pressed too thin and that is why it burned? If you decide to try it again, try lowering the oven rack. Thank you for sharing!

  22. Hi,
    I followed the recipe and placed it in a 9inch dish/cake dish that i would normally use for baking cakes. However, I was after a cookie cake-not a cake but the cookie to be thick like a cake, or layers. This was my first attemp for a friend’s birthday, and disappointingly it is just more of a cake; but now with plain flour.
    What do you think went wrong? I just want to be able to simply make cookies and a giant cookie cake: when I put the mix in the pan to cook, it appeared more cake like than cookie, why is that?

    Thanks!

  23. I made it for my family and they absolutely loved it!! I’m so glad I found this recipe and I’m making it again today. It was very moist and tasted like heaven in my mouth. Another great thing about this recipe was it serves a lot. My family ate it within 12 hours but it makes about 16-18 slices. Overall, this recipe was great and I’m so glad I came across it!

    1. I’m thrilled it was such a hit!

  24. Hi. I made this recipe for my girlfriend for valentine’s day. I just wanted to say it turns out that I didn’t need a pizza pan. I made it in the shape of a heart and then I put foil around it to make sure it wouldnt spread. It turned out perfectly and she loved it. Thanks for the recipe!

  25. If you do not have a pizza pan, two cake pans work.

  26. Jonathan Sager says:

    I love delicious food. Your recipes list is awesome. I’ve got ideas about recipes & I’ve benefited from your post. Thanks for sharing the informative post!!!

  27. Made this for my family just the other day – a really good comfort/share food!!! Some icecream and chocolate sauce on top, forks all round, and it was gone! Thank you Sally!

  28. Hey, I want to try this recipe. I have the large pampered chef stone. It is 15″. Should I double the recipe?

  29. John Baines says:

    Hi Sally! Do you have calorie information for this recipe by any chance?

  30. Best cookie pizza! Added sprinkles on top.
