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 recipe of eggless cookie dough (below)
6 oz semi sweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
chocolate sauce, for drizzling, optional (the one I used)
additional chocolate chips, for sprinkling on top, optional (I used mini)

Eggless Cookie Dough
3/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
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.
10. Stir in chocolate chips. Dough will be thick. Set aside.
11. Place chocolate chips in a metal bowl.
12. Microwave heavy cream until it starts to boil. Remove from microwave and pour over chocolate chips.
13. Cover bowl with saran wrap for 5-7 minutes.
14. Whisk chocolate and cream until smooth.
15. Allow ganache to sit for about 5 minutes, to thicken slightly, then pour over the pie crust and spread into an even layer.
16. Drop bits of cookie dough on top of the chocolate ganache. It will great a thick layer of cookie dough.
17. Top with chocolate sauce and additional chocolate chips, if desired.
18. Store in refrigerator. Dough will be firm when cold, so remove from fridge about 20 minutes before serving, or pre-slice pizza.
