Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Pizza

Welcome to Cookie Dough Week! Are you as pumped as I am?! We’ve got 15 amazing bloggers, bringing you some delicious recipes this week (all the links are further down in this post)! My first recipe is this Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Pizza. It is so delicious and easy to make, I couldn’t wait to share it will you!

It’s a Pillsbury pie crust, crusted with Oreo crumbs, topped with chocolate ganache and chocolate chip cookie dough. I finished it off with some chocolate sauce and additional chocolate chips. Simply amazing.

I had this idea for a while before I knew exactly how I’d execute it. I absolutely loved the idea. There’s been a lot of super fun cookie pizzas swirling around as of late and I’ve been wanting to make my own. However, with it being cookie dough week, I wanted to stay true to the cookie dough – unbaked.

So using a baked cookie crust just wouldn’t work. I wanted raw, delicious cookie dough all over it – eggless, of course.

I toyed with a few ideas. First was a purely Oreo crust – kind of like a pie crust. But I thought that wouldn’t hold together real well, and I want you to be able to pick up a piece just like you’re eating a slice of pizza, so that wouldn’t work.

Then I considered an actual pizza crust. Not sweet enough. I mean, really. This blog is all about the sugar.

Then a lightbulb went off. I had a leftover pie crust from making my Strawberry Cream Pie for pi day and I just knew it’d be perfect!

I baked the pie crust first, on it’s own, so that it would be a nice, firm foundation for the ‘pizza’ toppings. And I didn’t want it to lack any chocolate flair, so I figured adding Oreo crumbs just made sense, right?

Best decision ever. The pie crust was the perfect choice. The buttery, flakey crust complimented the rest of the pizza and the cookie dough exactly like I wanted it to. Seriously, so yummy!

Then, to hold it all together and make sure the cookie dough would stick well to the pizza, I used chocolate ganache. Again, perfect.

You guys, this thing comes together in no time and looks like a million bucks. I put it out for our small group and it was devoured. Might be one of my biggest hits with them so far. Although they do still talk about this Funfetti Millionaire Cake too – that thing’s the jam. If you haven’t seen it yet, you must.

But back to the cookie dough. This thing rocks. And I know I’ll be making it over and over again. I LOVE it and I know you will too!

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

2. Brush the top of the pie crust with the melted butter.
3. Sprinkle oreo crumbs over the buttery pie crust.
4. Bake pie crust at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes, until edges start to brown.
5. Remove pie crust from oven and allow to cool.
6. To make cookie dough, cream butter and sugars together until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes.
7. Mix in vanilla extract.
8. With the mixer on low speed, add flour.
9. Add milk to preferred thickness.

  19. Kirsten says:

    I just made this, and it is amazing! Thank you! I substituted the pie crust for an Oreo pie crust and it worked perfectly. I don’t really care for plain pie crust so it was a very sweet substitute!

  20. Can this be made somehow without the pie crust? or with a graham cracker pie crust?

    • lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com says:

      I think it’d be hard with a graham cracker crust – it might kind of fall apart. You could use an actual pizza dough, but it’ll be thicker and less sweet.
