Toll House Cookie Pizza with Nutella Ganache and Skor Toppings for Burwell’s Vintage Recipe Swap

Yes indeedy, you did read that correctly! I made a toll house cookie pizza. I had a blast doing it too! I have never made a cookie pizza before so this was going out on a limb for me. I had no idea whether it would work out or be a big old floppy mess. I’ve also never tried nor cooked with nutella before so this was going out on a limb and hanging by one hand for me. But I thought what the heck, that’s what these kind of groups are for. They make us push past our comfort zone and try new things. I have to say I was pushed but I think I held my ground quite well. Then end product is an ooey, gooey, chewy pizza with some pizzazz! Lol!

I really wanted to keep it a cookie and not venture too far off that. I thought about making ice cream which would have been super yummy. I thought about turning it into a brownie or a bar which also would have been amazing. I even considered making the cookie an ice cream bowl and then filling it with cookie dough ice cream. Which is quite possibly something I will be doing soon cuz that just sounds slamming good. Yet I kept going back to toll house being such a cookie icon that I wanted to figure out a way to stay cookie but make a few changes. This is what I came up with. So hopefully you like it. I know we did.

 

Toll House Cookie Pizza with Nutella Ganache and Skor Toppings
 
Author:
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: Depends how hungry you are!
Ingredients
For the Cookie Portion;
  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk
  • 1¼ cup flour
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla salt
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
For the Ganache Portion:
  • ¾ cup Nutella
  • ½ cup heavy cream
For the Topping:
  • ½ cup Skor toffee bits
Instructions
For the Cookie Portion:
  1. In your stand mixer combine butter and both sugars, mix until blended well.
  2. Add your egg and mix.
  3. Add your whole milk and mix.
  4. Now add your flour, vanilla salt and baking soda and mix on low until combined.
  5. Now add vanilla and chocolate chips and mix by hand.
  6. Spread on a parchment lined round pizza pan.
  7. It is helpful to start in middle and push outwards. Smooth as best you can.
  8. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 12 to 15 minutes.
  9. Remove from oven and let cool.
For the Ganache Portion:
  1. Scoop Nutella into a medium sized bowl.
  2. In a small saucepan warm your milk until it just starts to boil.
  3. Pour it over the nutella and whisk until smooth.
Putting it all together:
  1. Once your cookie pizza is cool you may start your ganache.
  2. Once your ganache is ready (instructions above) you can pour that onto the cookie pizza. It is best to start pouring it right in the middle of the pizza and let it work it’s way outwards. You can smooth it with the back of a spoon to help the process.
  3. Let this cool slightly.
  4. Now sprinkle Skor toffee bits over top.
  5. Cut with a pizza cutter.
  6. Serve with a smile.
Notes
Tips and Hints: Spraying utensils with pam spray helps smooth out the cookie and the nutella easier. Lining the pizza pan with parchment is really helpful. You can refrigerate this to help harden up the ganache a bit if you like.

    Haha! I love it!! When you read around the Recipe Swap group, look at how differently we each interpreted the same recipe! I love it, and it's why it's so fun. Thank you for being a part of it, and I hope we see you next time!

  2. 2

    Oh yum! I mustn't show this post to my sons lol! They will bug me to bake some!

  3. 3

    I don't see why you bothered to slice it at all. I'd just chomp on the whole thing myself … one big, giant cookie, just the way I like it!

    Wilde in the Kitchen says:

    I love this! Who needs to make lots of holiday cookies, just make one big one! :) I always want a big cookie cake all for myself though, I'd have to bring it to work so I didn't eat the whole thing!

  5. 5

    First of all, I love the name of your blog…I often call myself a lunatic and think it is the perfect name for a food blog. Secondly, holy moly this pizza looks good…every layer just gets better and better. Can't wait to try this out!

    OK you had be at the title. Nutella and Skor are my favorite of all time candy treats to enjoy… you know that little stand when you check out at the grocery store… somehow a Skorbar always jumps off the stand, skips over my cart and lands right on that belt. Dang, your pizza looks good!

    Barbara | Creative Culinary says:

    I considered a real big cookie or a pizza and you have managed to make me crave one big time. I might have to slather with Biscoff spread instead of Nutella but either way. It's a YUM!

  8. 8

    Drool, drool and triple drool! That is such a great take on the swap! I want a slice of that cookie pizza too! Love it!

    @Christianna- Thanks so much. I am having a blast with this swap stuff. I love recipe development, my heart just lies there so this is so much fun for me. You shall see me every month. I am really enjoying myself beyond words! So happy I was able to join!

    @Jeannie- Lol, it is a kid pleaser. Mine are older but my daughter keeps nabbing some. She is super picky too so I wasn't sure she'd go for it. She's had a couple slices already.

    @Ping- I thought about doing that but the slice looked better for pictures. So purely an artistic decision. Lol!

    @Wilde in the Kitchen- Lol, I wish I had thought of that for the cookie swap I'm doing. Just slide one whole pizza in the box.

    @Alli- Lol, so I am not the only one. I swear my two fave words are lunatic and hooligan. Let me know what you think. I am so impressed by the chewiness of the cookie. It doesn't get hard like some others I've made.

    @Camilla- Okay I never do this but if you like skor go all the way back through my archives to a recipe in March when I started called "Sex on the WTF". I am telling you that you will lose your mind when you try it. Best dessert ever. And super easy. If you like skor bars it's a must try!!!

    @Barbara- Oh that sounds yummy. Biscoff, nutella, peanut butter, marshmallows, the possibilities are endless. I love making people have cravings.

    @Shumaila- Hey girl, nice to see you! Thanks so much. I had so much fun with this one. Will be making more cookie pizzas in the future. Super yummy in the tummy!

    You're so full of ideas! I wish I was as creative as you ;) I've never had a cookie pizza before, but it sounds like a wonderful idea! Yours looks absolutely amazing, especially with the nutella ganache!!

  13. 13

    That looks wonderful. Dessert pizzas are so much fun and offer so many ways to use your imagination. I am loving the "sauce" with the crunchy toppings. Fabulous!!

  14. 14

    This looks delicious. My boys would flip for a cookie pizza! With the ganache on top, I'd have trouble resisting.

  15. 15

    Oooh a Toll House Cookie Pizza! Oh man I'm drooling over here, looks fantastic with the nutella ganache. Awesome job!!

  16. 16

    *SPLUTTER*
    ahem. You combined so many good things into one item, I don't even know where to start. I might just eat it all really fast. Yes.
    GOD. Woman. This shouldn't be legal!!

    I am so happy you did this interpretation! I love any kind of dessert pizza! this looks great!

    Whoa…this is basically my idea of heaven! A cookie pizza topped with Nutella ganache? Hell yeah!

    This just looks too decadent with the Nutella and toffee bits…mmm!

    Chef Dennis says:

    A toll house pizza….sigh, now I know for sure that we are kindred spirits! What a delicious interpretation of this months swap, you hit this one out of the park!

  24. 24

    Woohoo pizza! I think this is the perfect cookie recipe for a pizza, actually. The dough seems to rise a lot when baking and hardens into a pretty stiff cookie afterwards, without being too hard or crunchy.
    The Nutella ganache looks like a perfect perfect addition ! My little houses could have used some ganache details on them.

  25. 25

    Looks awesome! with all that gooey Nutella! Can I have some?

    Good thing I am stocked up on my insulin injections. This is a must-make. Simply awesome.

  27. 27

    I just have to make this for my girls! They were complaining about not having Nutella recently, and your pizza is going to make me one very good mama! Great take on the recipe!

    Stephanie @ Eat. Drink. Love. says:

    Um, yeah, I think I just died and went to heaven! Cookie pizza with nutella?!! Oh heck yes!

  29. 29

    I read the words in good taste and I am in agreement with the total sweetie pizza pie here. Great way to jazz up the toll house recipe-yum! I will gladly send you a pizza pan if you send me one of these. Well done Kim!

    How do you manage to stop eating when you have this in your kitchen! It's too tempting to walk by knowing that this is in the the kitchen. Looks lovely and delicious at the same time!

    I love what you did with the original recipe. I agree with Nami, this would be dangerous in my house!!!!!

    @anne- Lol, I seem to be a sweets rampage lately. Must be the Christmas spirit.

    @Von- Aw, how sweet are you! Thank you so much. I love playing around with recipes. Some succeed and some flop terribly. Luckily this one was a winner.

    @Kristen- Thanks my dear. I am so looking forward to making another version of this soon.

    @Mary- Thank you so much. I think any young kids would love this one. I might bring one to our Xmas dinner for all the nieces and nephews.

    @Lacy- Thank you so much. I really had a blast doing this one.

    @Kiri- Rofl, I have no restraint when it comes to ingredients. The more the merrier, lol!

    @Rachel- Thank you so much.

    @Alex- Thanks so much. This one was a pleasure to do.

    @Deb- I sure hope everyone likes them. I cannot believe how good the cookie was.

    @Boulder Locavore- "Way!" Sorry had to do the Wayne's World response. Lol. Thank you so much. I really had a blast with this challenge. Super fun.

    @thesmartcookiecook- Lol, hellz to the yeah!

    @Cucina49- Thank you so much. I saw these skor bits and almost passed out from glee.

    @Chef Dennis- Aw, you are so sweet. Thank you so much. I'm Tonto to your Lone Ranger remember. *giggles*

    @Rachel- Thank you so much. I love this cookie recipe. The ganache seemed to keep it just slightly soft but not too soft. I am in love with this one and will be doing it often. And your houses were perfect my dear. Pure heaven!

    @PolaM- Thanks and er, ah, um, I may have eaten it all. Lol!

    @unorthodoxepicure- Insulin injections a must with this one. It's over the top sweet and yummy.

    @Lana- I sure hope they like it. I am making it to bring to Xmas eve dinner for all the kiddies. SO good!And thank you so much!

    @Stephanie- Yup, it's either heaven or I am Satan trying to fatten you all up a bit. Lol!

    @Tina- Lol, it sure was a goodie. Man I am not sure if you sent me a pizza pan if you'd ever see it again. I like to horde me some pizza as you know. Lol!

    @Laura- Go back to my archives and find "Sex on the WTF". It is made with skor bars and omg it is dreamy. A must for anyone who likes skor.

    @Nami- Lol, I am good about sweets. I can have one and be fine with it. Now salty treats are a whole different ball game. Plus my son is 23 and lives at home. Sometimes I don't even get to try my baked goods, him and hubs inhale food at an alarming rate. And never gain weight. Peeves me off. Lol!

    @momdecuisine- Thanks and you should borrow my son. He also does dishes so not only does he inhale copious amounts of baked goods but he does dishes.

    @The Cozy Herbivore- Lol, it sure is drool inducing. I really had fun with this one in a big bad way.

  35. 35

    Over the top perfect for special birthday person who loves chocolate chip cookies and Skor bars. Decadent yet delightful! Great recipe.

  36. 36

    @Deb- Thank you so much. I really had fun with this one.
