Homemade Pizookies??

If you’re anything like me, Homemade Pizookies have not been on your radar. But they will be after today. The term is a blend of the words pizza and cookie…a pan cookie usually served warm with a scoop of ice cream. Nice, eh? Who wouldn’t approve of a huge Pizza Cookie???

Skillet Pizza Cookie

When we’re traveling, and exploring a new city, we cannot pass a bakery without a swing past their display cases. Bill does a quick once over, looking for a nut-free chocolate chip cookie. More often than not, he’ll leave with a white paper sack with those coveted cookies tucked inside.

You may have noticed my blog has more than its fair share of chocolate chip cookies…I’ve tried all the so-called “best” recipes, pan cookies and bar cookies. As you can imagine, these babies were quite popular.

I’d recommend divvying up the dough into 3 small skillets if you have them. Mine were quite deep and each could really serve 6 people! Just reduce the baking time. And I always underbake my cookies slightly so that the centers are doughy and chewy. Adjust to your liking.

When pizza meets cookies and chocolate chips are involved! A dessert to die for!

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes
Yield 10


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 sticks softened butter
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup bittersweet chocolate chips (I used Ghirardelli chips)


  1. Preheat oven to 375º. Grease two (or three) 6-inch cast iron skillets. Set aside.
  2. Cream butter and sugars till well blended. Add vanilla, eggs and egg yolk, and mix till light and creamy. Stir in flour, salt and baking soda till just incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips. Chilling dough is optional.
  3. Divide dough between prepared pans. Smooth tops. If using only 2 skillets and you have a little too much dough, you can make a couple cookies. Bake 25-30 minutes till edges are browned and centers look cooked. Cool slightly, then serve with a scoop of ice cream. Fudge or caramel sauce optional.

  1. I’m totally with your hubby- there is nothing better than a chocolate chip cookie! Dying to try this in my little mini-skillet from the conference 😉

  2. Ahhhh. I was wondering what a Pizookie was and then I saw the photo. How fun! Anything baked in a skillet gets a 5 star rating from me!

  3. Now THAT is my kinda cookie!! This looks amazing, Liz!! I have made pan cookies before, but they’ve never looked quite like this!! I’ll have to give your recipe a try and hope mine look as beautiful!! Pinned!

  8. Liz, this pizookie is the key to my heart, especially with that big scoop of ice cream melting over top. I packed up my cast iron pan when I moved in December but for the life of me, I can’t find it! It’s maddening. I’d better do another sweep of my house so that I can find it and make your beautiful pizookie. I hope you and Bill had a wonderful Father’s Day together!
