This Pizookie recipe is one we’ve been wanting to post for a longggg time, probably since we first started our blog. We first had it years ago at a restaurant in California called BJ’s and we never forgot about it! Having it again at Amanda and Kyle’s wedding in Las Vegas was the push we needed to recreate it.
Pizookie. Let me break it down for you. It’s a Pizza Cookie. At the restaurant they serve it to you in a pizza pan hot out of the oven with big scoops of vanilla ice cream on top. The ice cream gets all soft and melty. In a good way. It’s dreamy. We made ours in a cast iron skillet…and it was just as delicious as I hoped it would be.
The recipe below is for the Oreo Pizookie but you can tell from our picture that there’s another cookie in there. We made 2 cast iron skillets, each with half Oreo. Check back on Monday to see the recipe for the other half of our Pizookie. Of course you can make your Pizookie all one type of cookie, but we wanted to mix it up!
- 1 cup flour
- 1/8 cup cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup butter
- ½ cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/8 cup light corn syrup
- 1.5 ounces chocolate (1.5 baking squares), melted and cooled
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 10 Oreo cookies, crushed
- 4 ounces semi sweet chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Spray a cake pan or cast iron pan with cooking spray.
- Because we make a Pizookie with half Oreo and half chocolate chip we used 2 cast iron pans.
- In a small bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder; set
- In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream sugar and butter.
- Add egg and continue mixing until light and fluffy.
- Mix in corn syrup, chocolate and vanilla.
- Gradually mix in the flour mixture on low speed, until just combined.
- Fold in the crushed Oreos and chocolate chips. Spread in an even layer in a 9-inch cake pan or cast iron pan.
- Bake for about 25 minutes.
- Bake slightly less if you want it really gooey in the center and a few minutes more if you don't. After 20 minutes check to make sure it is not getting too brown.
- If it is getting too brown, simply tent the pan with foil for the remaining time it is in the oven.
- Serve right in the pan, hot with a couple scoops of vanilla ice cream.
