Triple chocolate chip cookie pizza ingredients
I adapted this cookie pizza from my Chewy Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe, simply by adjusting some of the ingredient ratios to give the best chewy, giant chocolate chip cookie pizza! Full amounts can be found in my recipe card at the bottom of this post, but to summarise, you’ll need:
- Plain flour for the cookie’s structure
- Cocoa powder to add chocolate flavour to the cookie dough
- Cornflour makes the cookie extra soft
- Bicarbonate of soda helps to leaven the cookie slightly, making it thicker
- Salt to balance the flavours
- Caster sugar for sweetness
- Light brown sugar for sweetness and extra chewiness
- Melted butter makes the cookie centre even chewier!
- Egg yolks bind the dough
- Vanilla extract for added flavour
- Chocolate chips I add both white and dark chocolate chips!
How to make a triple chocolate chip cookie pizza
This recipe is honestly dangerously easy to make! It’s both quicker and easier to make than standard cookies as you can skip both rolling out cookie dough balls and batch baking trays of cookies. I apologise in advance as you’ll definitely be making this more than once! 🙃
Full instructions with step-by-step photos can be found in my recipe card below, but to summarise:
- Preheat your oven to 170°C/150°C fan and line the base of a 33cm/13inch pizza pan/tray with a sheet of baking/parchment paper, to prevent the pizza dough from falling through the pan holes when baking!
- Add the plain flour, cocoa powder, cornflour, bicarbonate of soda and salt to a medium-sized bowl, then whisk to combine
- Add both sugars and the melted butter to a large mixing bowl and whisk to combine
- Next, add the egg yolks and vanilla to this large bowl and whisk to combine
- Add half the dry ingredients to the large bowl and fold together with a rubber spatula until combined, then repeat with the final half of dry ingredients
- Finally, add the chocolate chips and fold them through the mixture with your spatula
- Pour the cookie dough mixture onto your lined 33cm/13inch pizza pan/tray and spread it right to the edge with your spatula
- Bake for around 20 minutes, then place on your countertop for 5 minutes. Press some extra chocolate chips on top of the cookie while it’s still warm from the oven
- Place on a wire cooling rack to finish cooling. Done!
Top tips for making the best chocolate chip cookie dessert pizza
- Use a pizza pan which has a little depth to it and has a slight lip around the edge like the one shown in my photos. If you use a thinner pan with no lip, the cookie dough may spill over the edges of the pan as it rises slightly when baked!
- If your pan has holes in the base like mine, you must line it with baking or parchment paper or the dough will fall through the holes as it bakes!
- For a chewy cookie pizza, bake for around 20 minutes – overbaking will make it more crunchy
- While the pizza cookie is still hot from the oven, press some extra white and dark chocolate chips on top – this is mainly for appearance!

How should I store a chocolate chip cookie pizza?
You can store any leftover cookie pizza in an airtight container, or double wrapped in film, and keep it at room temperature. It should keep well for 3-4 days!
Can I freeze leftover cookie pizza?
Yes, this freezes really well. Store in an airtight container and wrap in film. If stacking slices on top of each other, it’s best to place a piece of baking/parchment paper between layer to prevent them from sticking together! It should keep well in the freezer for around 4 months.
To conclude, this triple chocolate chip cookie pizza is:
- Soft and chewy with a crunchy crust
- Incredibly quick and easy to make
