Pizookie – best dessert ever!


Over the weekend we made one of our favorite desserts. The Pizookie (pizza cookie). If you’ve ever tried one at Oregano’s or BJ’s you know of their deliciousness.

Luckily this dessert is super easy to re-create at home. Trust me… we would know. ;) They are our favorite dessert! Just imagine eating a big warm chocolate chip cookie topped with vanilla ice cream and chocolate chips. Yup that’s all it really is…AND it’s pretty amazing. Make an excuse to make these this weekend! You won’t be disappointed. Plus they are just that much more fun to eat in mason jars.

Pizookie – best dessert ever!


  • Chocolate chip cookie dough (your favorite recipe- nestle works great too)
  • vanilla ice cream
  • mini chocolate chips


Make cookie dough according to directions, or buy the pre-made stuff. ;) Scoop cookie dough in a jar (tin cans work great too). Bake at 350 for 8 minutes. Make sure they’re a little brown on the edges, but still a little doughy in the middle. Then pull them out of the oven and allow to cool for 3-5 minutes. Top with vanilla ice cream and chocolate chips. Enjoy!!

    Pizookies are my absolute fave. I will use Nestle or if I am totally motivated I will make my own dough. I make them in those glass ramekins you can find cheap at Walmart, etc. If you cook them in there they indent in the middle which is the perfect spot for a glob of icecream. Everyone goes crazy for this dessert and it takes no time at all.

    I LOVE Pizookies! One of my most favorite treats ever! Firehouse Pizza( in Cache County Utah) has the BEST ones I have ever tasted! Thanks for sharing. Now I am going to go make myself some!(I have the SAME jam jars that you used for yours!)………….

    Funny, we just had pizzookies last night. We love Oreganos and love pizzookies. Though, we’ve found that we prefer to make our own – Oregsnos and especially BJ’s tend to overcook the dough. It should be only half-baked so it’s still nice and gooey. Yum!

    I can’t wait to try these! I’m thinking that this might be a fun gift to give to someone so that they can just throw it in the oven.

    I am going to have to try these! My husband loves getting these when he travels.

    I have enjoyed reading this blog “iheartnaptime.net/pzookie/”. It is a combination of baking your favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough into cookies. The idea is not to over bake the dough into really dry cookies. While they are still moist in the center, top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, a hand full of chocolate chips – dig in with a roomy spoon! It should work well every time you make it. Enjoy!

    Where did you get the pizookie spoons? They’d make a great Christmas gift. Thanks for your response!
