Prepare the Pizookie Dough

The most important step to a delicious oven-baked Pizookie is the dough. Here’s how I make it:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine 1 cup of all-purpose flour, 1/2 tsp of baking soda, and 1/4 tsp of salt. Stir until well combined.
  3. In a separate larger bowl, cream together 1/2 cup of softened unsalted butter and 1/2 cup of brown sugar until smooth.
  4. Add in 1 large egg and 1 tsp of vanilla extract to the butter mixture, and stir until well combined.
  5. Sift the flour mixture into the bowl with the butter mixture and stir until a dough forms. Do not overmix, or the Pizookie will be tough.

Now that the dough is ready, it’s time to move on to baking the Pizookie.

Bake the Pizookie

Now that the dough is ready, it’s time to bake your skillet-free Pizookie. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and evenly spread the Pizookie dough on it. Use a spatula or the back of a spoon to smooth out the surface and even out the edges.

Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown and the center is set.

Bake the Pizookie.

While baking, resist the urge to open the oven door too often, as this can cause the Pizookie to become lopsided. Trust that your skillet-free Pizookie is baking to perfection!

Once baked, remove the Pizookie from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes. This will allow the dough to set and make it easier to cut and serve.
