Why is it called pizookie

A pizookie is a thick cookie that’s cooked in a cast iron skillet like a deep dish pizza. Therefore, the name is a combination of pizza and cookie.

More small batch recipes that you’ll enjoy are my White Chocolate Chip Cookies, Peanut Butter Cookies, Soft Toffee Cookies, and Small Batch Bacon Cheddar Biscuits.

Double Chocolate Pizookie Recipe

I have wanted to try a pizookie for for-ever! One deep dish of a thick gooey cookie, warm and oozing with chocolate. It’s everything I love about a cookie and nothing I hate about a cookie. There’s no chilling the dough, no scooping mound after mound of cookies, and no baking multiple batches.

But, there is that sharing thing

or maybe not.

I did make this a small batch pizookie. Yes, one recipe makes enough dough for two 5-inch skillets. Now, certainly, you don’t have to share. Maybe I would, maybe I wouldn’t. I’m just saying, if you want a dessert and don’t want to overdo it or feel like you have to run 9 miles to burn the calories, this would be perfect for four people to share. It would be perfect for couples to share at supper club. It was perfect when my husband and I wanted vanilla ice cream over our warm cookie, but our boys didn’t.

I filled this pizookie full of chocolate. One bite and my husband said, “That’s a little dough wrapped around a lot of chocolate.” Now, that’s not a bad thing in my opinion! If you don’t want that much chocolate to reduce the chocolate chips from 1/2 cup to 1/3 cup. Also, you can certainly use milk chocolate chips instead of dark chocolate chips. You could even get really cray cray and use white chocolate chips instead of the candy-coated chocolates!

Stop the madness!

So much chocolate talk gets me excited!

Pizookie Tips

You’ll want to sit the butter and egg out to allow it to come to room temperature before mixing. Give it 30 minutes on the counter and you should be good!

Also, it’s imperative in baking to measure your flour correctly. It’s über important for a small batch like this. Don’t use the measuring cup to scoop into the flour! I wrote a ‘how-to’ snippet in the post Twix Bar Cinnamon Rolls on correctly measuring flour.

  1. For those of us who have yet to purchase a skillet..can these be made as regular drop cookies? Looks delicious!

    1. You could use a pie plate or, yes, just make regular cookies with the dough. I was just lazy and didn’t want to scoop out individual cookies. 🙂

  2. This looks delicious! I would love it if you joined and contribute your awesome posts at my link party at City of Creative Dreams , starts on Fridays 😀 Hope to see you there at City of Creative Dreams Link Party.

  3. Aah! This sounds so amazing! I keep seeing these pizookies all over the place and I need to make one! I’m going to pin this. Would it work to make this in one big cast iron skillet?

    1. Yes, but I would put it in any larger than an 8 inch, I think it would be too thin. Thanks for visiting and sharing!

  4. This pizookie looks out of this world Paula! Love the double chocolate in here. Oh boy, it would be hard for me to share this too – especially with a scoop of ice cream on top – yum! Pinned 🙂

    1. Thanks so much Kelly! And thanks for sharing. Hope you and your little one are doing well! Have a great holiday weekend!

  5. There is no such thing as too much chocolate! Love this, Paula, and I totally have to try a pizookie, especially because I love the name, too. I have a feeling I’m going to be saying all day. Someone in the office is having a bad day? Oh, go eat a pizookie! If that doesn’t make someone smile, something’s wrong! 🙂 Pinning! Have a great Tuesday!

  6. The more I read blogs the more I ask myself—where have I been all this time. What a dessert this is. Prepared in a skillet? I love having my food envelope ripped open. I am laughing as I am typing.

  7. LOVE this pizookie!!! We’ve got a restaurant here called BJ’s and we basically go there for their pizookies. This one however, blows theirs away.

    1. I totally get it. I choose restaurants based on desserts, it’s the most important and fun 🙂 Thanks, Matt, have a great day!
