This sweet, decadent skillet pizookie features three types of chocolate – dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and white chocolate – that are combined to create a rich and gooey dessert. The giant cookie is baked to give the top a nice crunch while the inside of the cookie is warm and gooey.

What is a pizookie?

A pizookie is the signature dessert at BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse. It’s a pizza/cookie hybrid baked in a pan and served warm and gooey and topped with scoops of vanilla ice cream. 

Each pizookie at the restaurant will set you back about $8, so why not take that dough and make your own deep dish cookie pie?

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup dark chocolate chips
  • ½ cup white chocolate chips
  • scoops of ice cream
Flour, brown sugar, chocolate chips, cocoa powder, sugar, butter, vanilla, and salt.
  1. Preheat oven to 350° Fahrenheit. Lightly spray a cast-iron skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Set the skillet aside.
  2. Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder in a bowl. Set aside.
  3. Cream butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer until smooth and creamy.

6. Fold the dark chocolate chips and white chocolate chips into the cookie dough.

8. Allow the pizookie to cool slightly before serving. Serve the warm cookie with scoops of your favorite ice cream.

Substitutions and Variations

Feel free to use different baking chips in the cookie dough. Some tasty variations include using butterscotch chips and peanut butter chips. You can use one variety of chocolate chips or use a combination. 

You could add some chopped almonds and shredded coconut to have a pizookie version of Almond Joy.

Another way to change the flavor of the dish is to substitute flavored ice creams in place of vanilla, such as coconut ice cream, butter pecan ice cream, and chocolate ice cream. Or if you really want to indulge, serve with a scoop of Moose Tracks ice cream.

How do I know when my pizookie is done baking?

You want the top of the cookie to be slightly crunchy while the inside remains soft and gooey. In order to ensure this outcome, it is important to err on the side of underbaking your cookie. The cookie will continue to bake in the skillet after it is removed, so if the top is lightly crunchy, but your finger can easily push down, it is okay to remove it from the oven.

If you overbake it, but it is burnt, don’t throw it out. You will probably still have a delicious chocolate-chocolate chip cookie.

Can I make this ahead of time?

Yes! You can make the dough and store it in the freezer or refrigerator. If you freeze it, allow the frozen dough to thaw in the refrigerator overnight before using.
