The BEST Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie recipe
Thick and chewy edges with a warm, soft, and gooey inside. My favorite chocolate chip cookie dough in an easy to make skillet cookie with a surprise filling of sweet, melted Nutella.
Why is it called a Pizookie?
Pizza + Cookie = Pizookie! A Pizookie is a deep dish skillet cookie shaped like a pizza. It’s the ultimate cast iron skillet chocolate chip cookie recipe.
Super easy, homemade cookie skillet recipe
This Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie is so quick and easy to make. No chilling dough, no rolling out individual cookies. If you want to make it even easier, try it with store bought pre-made cookie dough.
Ingredients for a Nutella-Stuffed Skillet Cookie
- Chocolate chip cookie dough – I’ve used my favorite chocolate chip cookie dough recipe that makes the most amazing thick and chewy cookies with crispy edges and a soft interior.
- Chocolate chips – Semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips or chunks. Things can get pretty sweet in there with the Nutella, so to prevent the cookie from being cloyingly sweet, I use bittersweet chocolate. (Here I’ve used Ghiradelli 60% cacao bittersweet chocolate chips.)
- Nutella –I use ½ cup of Nutella for a 10 inch pan and ¾ cup of Nutella for a 12 inch pan.
What kind of pan to use to make a cast iron skillet cookie
I love using a cast iron skillet to make a skillet cookie. It bakes evenly and doesn’t stick.
I used a 10 inch skillet (a Field #8) in the photos here and a 12 inch skillet (Lodge) in the video. The 12 inch pan makes a larger, thinner cookie. (I add a little extra Nutella when using the 12 inch pan.)
If you don’t have a cast iron pan, you can use a 9 or 10 inch cake or springform pan in place of the 10 inch skillet. A 9 by 13 baking pan can be substituted for the 12 inch skillet.
How to make a Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie
Make the chocolate chip cookie dough
Using a hand mixer, stand mixer, or by hand, combine the butter and sugars and mix until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the eggs and mix until fully combined. Add the dry ingredients and mix until just incorporated. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Press half the dough into the skillet
I like to make a bit of a rim by pressing the dough about a quarter of an inch up the sides of the pan.
Spread on the Nutella
The Nutella is easier to spread if you warm it up in the microwave. Leave about a half inch to an inch border around the edges free of the Nutella.
Top with second half of cookie dough
I press small pieces of dough flat in between my hands, then fit them top of the Nutella and smooth them together. Spray your hands with baking spray so the dough doesn’t stick to them.
Sprinkle with chocolate chips and bake
Reserve about a third of the chocolate chips for sprinkling on top.
Bake in a 350 degree oven until the top is set and the edges are golden brown, about 20-30 minutes, depending on the size of the pan. I like mine on the underdone side, so I bake it less.
A 12 inch skillet will bake faster than a 10 inch skillet.
How to serve a skillet cookie
Serve warm from the oven with vanilla ice cream, or let it cool and slice it like a pie.
How to make a Skillet Cookie with premade, store bought, cookie dough
In a hurry? You can make a chocolate chip cookie skillet with pre-made, store bought dough. Simply switch out the homemade dough with a large size store bought dough.
Individual Skillet Cookies
Divide the ingredients - restaurant style - among smaller cast iron skillets. Top with ice cream for the cutest individual cookie sundaes.
Make Ahead Cookie Skillet
This Chocolate Chip Skillet is super easy to make in advance. Assemble the skillet cookie in the pan then stick it in the fridge for up to 3 days. Pop it right into the oven when you’re ready to bake it. The perfect, easy make ahead dessert that’s warm and gooey from the oven just when you want it!

Holy cow! This looks amazing. This is the first I've heard of a Pizookie, but you better believe it isn't the last. Stuffing a layer of Nutella between 2 chocolate chip cookies sounds like the thing dreams are made of. Pass me a cookie...no, just the skillet and a spoon. And don't skimp on the vanilla ice cream! 🙂
It's dreamy alright! Thanks so much, David!

Skillet cookies are my favorite, Kelly - love the nutella and chocolate chips - this is a winner! Pinning to share!
It's so irresistible! Thanks so much, Geraldine!
nice recipe gonna try this
Hi Kelly, can this be cooked in a springform cake pan, if so what size would you use? and would the same time apply for baking thank you
Hi Deb, yes, a springform cake pan would work just fine. A 10-inch pan would work the best and the cooking time should be about the same. I take it out according to how it looks rather than exact minutes as all ovens vary somewhat.
Thank you so much Kelly will try that
