A Pizookie is out-of-this-world! Believe me, you will love this big cookie served up like a pizza. A cross between a pizza and a cookie that is how it gets its name Pizookie!
What’s a Pizookie?
A pizookie is when a pizza meets a cookie and topped off with ice cream! A deep-dish skillet cookie served right up like a pizza! Who wouldn’t want a slice? BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse, a popular chain in the U.S., created the delicious masterpiece called the pizookie.
How do you make a pizookie?
First, you need a cookie base. The cookie base I am using is a slightly modified version of my Congo Squares recipe. Since I’m a big proponent of freezing extra batches of cookie dough, and it was a little tricky to halve, I just left it at full-batch measurements. Because honestly, it’s always a good idea to have cookie dough in the freezer.
- 1/2 cup butter softened
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 2 1/4 cups brown sugar
- 3 eggs
- 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 Tbsp cornstarch
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 35 Rolos unwrapped
- about 10 square Marshmallows cut in half crosswise (like a hamburger bun)
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Cream the butter, coconut oil and sugar.
- Add eggs one at a time, beating until incorporated.
- Add the flour, baking powder, cornstarch & salt and combine.
- Stir in chocolate chips.
- Divide dough in half. (freeze one half for later use, or make 2 pizookies.)
- Oil a 12-inch skillet and press dough evenly to the edges.
- Bake 20-25 minutes, or until lightly browned on top.
- Remove from oven and turn on the broiler.
- Place Rolos on the hot pizookie.
- Top with marshmallow halves.
- Return pan to oven to toast the marshmallows under the broiler. Watch carefully, it will take less than a minute. The marshmallows will burn very quickly if left too long.
- Cool and cut into slices.
- I slide mine out of the pan prior to cutting it, it’s much easier than trying to cut it in the skillet (which I’ve also done).
- Any size and shape marshmallows will work, just use enough to cover the cookie. Cut large marshmallows in half crosswise.
