Pizzookies are little individual servings filled with warm gooey chocolate cookie and ice cream. We love topping our Pizzookie with chocolate and/or caramel sauce for a knock-your-socks-off dessert that’s fancy enough for company and easy enough for a casual family treat. They can be made with 100% store-bought short cuts, or you can make any part of them with homemade recipes, we’ll provide links for all the options but they are just as delicious either way! Scroll past recipe card for step-by-step photos and some more tips.
Individual servings of warm chocolate chip cookie with ice cream on top.
Preheat oven to 350. Fill desired amount of ramekins (or any sort of individual sized oven safe serving vessels) a little bit more than half way with cookie dough.
Bake for about 12-14 minutes or until golden around the edges but still soft in the middle.
Remove from oven and allow to cool about 5 minutes. Top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and drizzle with chocolate, or caramel or both!
Why a Pizzookie?
How to Make a Pizzookie
You can absolutely use a tub of store-bought cookie dough or make your own. If you want to only make 2-4 pizzookies, I recommend making this easy dough from our giant cookie since it makes a smaller amount.
When you order a Pizzookie at a restaurant, it often comes in a mini skillet. There are a lot of options, styles and sizes of those available on Amazon. We often bust out the mini cast iron skillet when making one for a special occasion, or if we’re going to share, but most times we love using ramekins because they’re so easy to serve in and you don’t end up with a hot handle you have to watch out for. There is however something fun about eating out of a skillet. So, either way!

I just made them and posted my results. I’m in a sugar induced coma at the moment but thank you for sharing this gem!
Made these! Mmmmmm, they were so gooood! I will definitely be passing along the “recipe”!
This was a very dangerous recipe to learn- so fast, so easy and SO good! I don’t know why I would even both making anything else anymore! 🙂 The fudge sauce is so easy and yummy too- thanks!
I must have this dessert! My how yummy it looks. It will be something I make very soon. Thanks for sharing.
My mom brought me some ramekins yesterday so I promptly made these after lunch with some Papa Murphy’s cookie dough I had in the fridge. I just about died. My sis-in-law told me just the day before that she saw them on your blog and made them for a crowd with your hot fudge sauce. Apparently, everyone raved about it. Now I can see why! I liked them so much, we finished off the cookie dough and made them again tonight for dessert!! This is going to be my new favorite for SURE! Mmmmmm!
I'm sooooo making this! I FINALLY made your snickerdoodle ice cream….we loved it. The only thing I changes was that I only put 1 & 1/2 tsp of cinnamon & I think I'd like to cut it down a little more. I added actual snickerdoodle cookies into mine which are cinnamony so it was almost too much. I'll definitely be making it again. Thanks!
Hello! I made this Saturday with store bought tube cookie dough. And we loved them so much we made them from scratch Sunday. I’m glad we are out of ice cream or I’d be making them again today. YUMMMMMM!!!!!
Oh. my. this looks amazing.
I made this last night and WOW was it good. I personally hate the cookie dough in the tube so I made cookie dough, it doesn’t take but five minutes anyway. I also made your hot fudge to put on top, loved it. Thanks for a totally great dessert, it’s one of my top ten now.
This were incredibly yummy! So rich and terrific!
Thanks for ALL the great recipies!
Uh oh! Firehouse (our local pizza place) will miss our pizookie patronage! Pizookies at home! What a dream come true!
Saw your picture on FoodGawker…incredible!
I love you Kate! I think I gained a pound just looking at the pictures. Hey, since my oven is full of melted plastic, can you post some meal ideas that don’t require an oven?? Thanks!
Oh wow, that sounds divine. I’m really wishing I had cookie dough and vanilla ice cream lying around right now.
Kate! Wow! These look so good. I only have three more days of sb phase one and I am thinking of throwing in the towel for this recipe. Yum! I can’t wait to try them.
Yum…can’t wait to try it! We would go to a restaurant in TX just for their cookie monster–which was similar to this!
GENIUS! Why do I never think of these things?! I am definitely a cookie junkie and this is right up my alley! I bet kids would go nuts over this – I know I would! 🙂
Yum! They sell these by this very name at one of our Italian restaurants here. They’re good stuff! Never thought of making it at home. Mmmmm.
What a great idea. I will be trying this out asap. 🙂
What a great idea. I might have to make some this weekend.
Sorry – I deleted my comment because of spelling errors…thanks for answering me via email!
I have had this before but I have microwaved the cookie dough! It is not as good that way, BUT it only takes 45 seconds and there are just some days when 45 seconds is all you have to spare!! Those seem to be the days when I need cookies most, so I am all about the microwave version!
oooohhh, scandalous. i’m trying this tonight! (since I already have cookie dough in the freezer for emergencies)
Oh my yum. I almost licked my computer screen. I’m gonna be trying these for sure!
Yummity Yum Yum Yum…
I made these when you first told me about them. I totally agree about the store-bought cookie dough- when it’s covered in ice cream and chocolate and caramel, you’re not gonna know (or care) that it’s not homemade! I think this is a perfect no-fuss dessert.
Yum. Those look delicious!
YUM ! There is no dessert more perfect, I think.
artificial vanilla is my first choice. America’s Test Kitchen couldn’t tell the difference, and that’s good enough reason to believe that neither can my dinner guests.
We like to use the mini brownie stones from pampered chef for individual pizzookies.
This looks fabulous! My family is certain to agree. I am headed to the store to get what I need for these tasty treats. Friday nights are perfect for something like this. Thanks!
What a cute idea! I love my little ramekins, but hardly use them. This is a perfect little dessert using ingredients that I love. I can’t wait to try it!!
