Chocolate-Chip Cookie Pizza

Chocolate-Chip Cookie Pizza

You like chocolate chip cookies. You like pizza. What could be better than a giant chocolate chip pizza cookie? If your answer is, “pretty much nothing,” we’d say you’re 100% right. This Instagram-worthy treat starts with a batch of our famous chocolate chip cookie dough (with a smidge of cornstarch to keep the cookie soft and gooey in the center), but from there, it’s all yours. When we took it out of the oven, we spread on cherry jam “pizza sauce,” drizzled on melted white chocolate “mozzarella,” and added rounds of raspberry fruit leather “pepperoni.” But warmed Nutella and blobs of marshmallow fluff are a pretty awesome combination, too. We developed this recipe for a special print-only edition of The New York Times for Kids, but our sources tell us grown-up sweet tooths can't resist this oversized treat either. For a more sophisticated dinner party-worthy variation, leave off the toppings and serve generous wedges with scoops of vanilla ice cream and salted caramel sauce.

  1. Step 1

    Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Sift flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt into a large bowl. Set aside.
  2. Step 2

    Using a mixer fitted with paddle attachment, cream butter and sugars together until very light, about 5 minutes, on medium-high. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla. Reduce speed to low, add dry ingredients and mix until the white streaks of flour just disappear, 5 to 10 seconds. Stir in chocolate chips.
  3. Step 3

    For one large rectangular pizza, transfer the dough to a sheet pan lined with parchment paper and flatten out with your fingers or a rubber spatula. For two cookies, divide the dough into two equal pieces on two separate sheet pans lined with parchment paper and flatten into the shape of a circle. Be sure to leave a border of at least 1 1/2 inches as cookie will spread.
  4. Step 4

    Bake until golden brown but still soft, 18 to 25 minutes. Transfer sheet to a wire rack for 10 minutes. Top as desired (see note). Cut in wedges and serve.
