Jump to Recipe

A Pizookie, for those of you who haven’t yet gotten to enjoy the most important development in baking since birthday cake, is a giant cookie in the shape of a pizza. And after much testing (it’s a tough job, I know), we have arrived. And it’s perfect.

The What’s Gaby Cooking Facebook group is one of my favorite places on the Internet. It’s basically a group of humans who love nothing more than eating, cooking, and feeding people — my kind of peeps! When I was originally concept-ing my 4th cookbook, Take it Easy, I asked the group, “What’s one dessert that you want but haven’t made before?” Well, this S’more Pizookie recipe from the book goes out to Lauren, who made the suggestion that spoke to my soul: a pizookie and s’mores mashup.

This recipe is a little sneak peak into my new cookbook Take It Easy coming your way IN LESS THAN 2 WEEKS- 9/27!! I’m not technically allowed to share these with you but JUST DON’T TELL MY PUBLISHER! I thought since it was a WGC Friends recipe idea… it needed some lime light on the website. In the meantime, I’m linking all of the places to buy the book below as pre-orders are HUGELY important for authors. That said, I’d be eternally grateful if you snagged a copy or two or three today!! Can’t wait for you guys to see it in the wild!

I can’t wait for you to try this recipe and so many others from the book. Now it’s time to answer some common FAQs about how to make a homemade pizookie.

What is a Pizookie?

Imagine a mega chocolate chip cookie baked in a cast iron skillet and then served with ice cream on top.  Pizza + Cookie = Pizookie.

Where did the Pizookie come from?

As a child growing up in Tucson there was a restaurant called Oreganos we used to always go to that claimed to be the inventor of the pizza cookie! Technically they did not call it a Pizookie. BJ’s Restaurant and Bar I believe came up with the name Pizookie and has made it famous through their restaurant chain nation wide.

How to make Pizookie at home?

It’s very simple – cookie dough, a skillet, and some ice cream. But in order to make a S’more Pizookie we’re adding graham cracker crumbs and mini marshmallows to the mix.

Take your cookie dough and transfer to a skillet, spread evenly and bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 22-24 min until just still slightly gooey in the middle and golden around the edges. Top with ice cream and you are set. (Full directions down below)

How to serve a Pizookie?

It’s best served straight out of the skillet with 4-5 forks for you and your friends so everyone can go to town. You can also eat it on your own, something I may or may not have done on more than one occasion.

The ultimate tip for making Pizookie at a moments notice:

Have you ever thrown a dinner party and just did not have the time to make dessert? Have you ever craved something sweet after dinner on a Wednesday but did not feel like taking the time to bake something off and deal with the messy dishes?

If so, this tip is about to be a game changer. The concept is simple. The next time you are making cookies, make an extra batch of cookie dough and freeze it. I always have a batch of cookie dough sitting in my freezer ready to go.  This way, you can easily thaw the frozen cookie dough and bake off a batch of cookies without the mess, or MAKE A S’MORE PIZOOKIE by mixing in the graham cracker crumbs and mini marshmallows, without all the dishes of making the cookie dough, something I have been known to do from time to time.

  1. Hi Gaby, Am I misreading this recipe. To make it a s’more pizookie, I need to add graham cracker crumbs and mini marshmallows, but in what amounts? That would change the ratio of dry ingredients to wet ingredients, wouldn’t it? Kathleen

    1. I’d suggest baking in a non-glass vessel as it retains heat better! BUT if pyrex is the only one you have in this general size, go for it!!

  2. My occasionally dumb but usually lovely husband put our cast iron in the dishwasher and I still need to re-season it. Can I use a pie tin just this once?!

    1. sure! just keep your eyes on baking time as they bake differently than cast iron depending on material
