Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie Pizza Recipe

A Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie Pizza – an easy and delicious alternative to birthday cake.

Part of the fun of being the birthday kid is choosing the kind of cake you’re having at your birthday party right?  And what will it be?  An ice cream cake? Cupcakes? A cake from a mix or from the bakery?  Well, how about a cookie?  A giant chocolate chip cookie that will feed 16 kids?!

Say what?

Up until last year, every time a birthday rolled around, my boys would pick the kind of cake they wanted (Sponge Bob, Hockey Rink, Fire Truck…you get the picture), and I’d rent a pan and spend hours mixing and colouring icing, squeezing stars and piping lines, and washing up icing bags, icing tips, and about a dozen bowls.  Afterwards, my hands (and quite often, the counter and table would be stained with a lovely rainbow of gel colours.

So I have to admit, I was pretty excited this past year when my oldest was planning his birthday party, and said he wanted a “giant chocolate chip pizza cookie” instead of a birthday cake.

I was like, “What? A cookie? Seriously? A chocolate chip COOKIE?” Sound the bells and bang the gongs!  10 minutes of “work”, and 1 bowl to wash up.  Hah!!  I was all over it.  And Andrew, bless his little heart, wanted a pizza cookie when his birthday rolled around 9 months later.

This recipe is SO easy and honest to goodness, this is one seriously huge and delicious cookie.  Serve it warm(ish) with a scoop of ice cream and you’re good to go.  Heck, you don’t even need to run out and get birthday candles!  Could it get any better than that?

Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie Pizza Recipe:

  • 1 c butter, softened
  • 3/4 c white sugar
  • 3/4 c brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 & 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 cups chocolate chips

Making your cookie:

In large bowl, beat butter, sugars and vanilla until soft and fluffy.  Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.  Gradually add flour, salt, baking soda, and beat until well blended.  Stir in Chocolate Chips.  Spread it out on pizza stone or greased pizza pan. (leave a good inch or so around the edge of the pan as it will spread when it’s baking – last time, mine ran over the edge a bit, but I just took a sharp knife and went all around the outside of the stone to clean up the edge of the cookie).

Bake 375 for 20-25 mins.

Use pizza cutter to cut your massive chocolate chip cookie slice into 16 pieces.
