How to Make Chocolate Chip Pizza?

Chocolate chip cookies and pizza may vary vastly in terms of taste but both of them are hugely popular among people of all ages. A chocolate chip pizza has the best of both worlds, the size of a pizza and the sweet taste of the chocolate chip cookie.

You can make a regular pizza dough and sprinkle chocolate chip on it but it will not give you the ultimate satisfaction of having a nice and delicious dessert. We need to tweak the recipes so that you can make a pizza that has the look of a pizza but the taste of a chocolate chip cookie.

I will describe in detail in the following passages the entire process through which you can bake yourself a nice chocolate chip pizza that will inarguably impress everyone who will take a bite of your special dessert pizza. This dessert is sure to make you the talk of the town with its size and deliciousness.

How to Make Chocolate Chip Pizza?

The process of making a chocolate chip pizza is more like making chocolate chip cookies than making a pizza. Sprinkling chocolate chips on top of a pizza dough and baking it will not make a tasty item so this is the preferable method of making chocolate chip pizza.

The dough that we will make will have a soft texture, unlike the rubbery texture of a pizza dough. This dough will then be spread on top of a circular pizza plate on which we can bake it in the oven. And finally, we can slice the pizza and present it for eating.

Ingredients to Chocolate Chip Pizza

Here is the list of ingredients that you will need to bake a flavorful chocolate chip cookie pizza.

  • All-purpose flour- 2 cups or 250 gm
  • Cornstarch- 1 tablespoon
  • Baking soda- 1 teaspoon
  • Salt- ½ teaspoon
  • Butter- 170 gm
  • Brown sugar- ½ cup
  • Granulated sugar- ½ cup
  • Egg- 1, large
  • Vanilla extract- 1 teaspoon
  • Semi-sweet chocolate chips- 200 gm

Cooking Directions

The cooking method of chocolate chip pizza is divided into several parts so that you can follow it easily. They are detailed below.

Creaming the Butter

Bring the butter to room temperature if it is in the freezer. Do not rush this process and never microwave the butter to soften it. Let it gradually come to room temperature. Gently press on the butter with your index finger and if it goes down easily, your butter is ready to be creamed.

Creaming the butter is the process through which butter is incorporated with sugar by vigorously stirring it with a spatula or a spoon. Take a large bowl and add the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar. Brown sugar often clumps together so I use a sifter to get rid of the clumping.

Use a spatula or a wooden spoon to fold the sugar into the butter. Keep stirring the mixture gently to incorporate all of the sugar into the butter until it becomes smooth.

Adding the Egg and Vanilla

After you are done creaming the butter, add the egg and the vanilla extract to the mixture. Stir again until the egg gets fully mixed into the batter. Make sure that no egg white or yolk remains separated from the mixture. Always use a room-temperature egg because it mixes better.

Adding the Dry Ingredients

Take another big bowl and add all the remaining dry ingredients such as flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt to it. Use a dry spatula or spoon to roughly mix everything. Make sure that there are no clumps in the dry ingredients. I also use a sifter here to make sure that no clumps remain.

Mixing the Dough

Add half of the dry ingredients to the wet mixture and stir to incorporate everything. Add the rest of the dry ingredients when you see that there is no white flour left in the mixture. Stir well until everything gets mixed well enough. Now you have a dough that you can use to bake a chocolate chip pizza.

Forming the Crust

Coat a circular oven pan with butter or olive oil and turn out the dough on top of it. Press down with your hand to flatten it out on the surface of the pan.

Make sure to make the sides of the crust thicker as they might break apart as the pizza bakes. Make sure that the dough is spread uniformly on top of the plate and that the thickness is the same in all places.

Adding the Toppings

At this stage, add the chocolate chips on top of the flattened-out crust. Spread the chocolate chip cookies all over the dough. You can also use additional toppings such as various types of nuts as it compliments the flavor well.

Baking the Pizza

Preheat your oven to 390 F or 200 C. Place the pizza in the middle rack of your oven. Bake the pizza for 20 minutes.

Giving It the Final Touches

After you have finished baking the pizza, let it rest for a while before slicing it and decorating it with your favorite dessert toppings such as whipped cream, cream cheese, honey, maple syrup, etc.
