A pizookie is like a very large cookie, so you will need cookie dough ingredients to make it of course! The cookie recipe I am using to make my air fryer pizookie is an old time favorite of mine. Of course, you can use any of your favorite chocolate chip cookie dough recipes.

  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 5 ½ tablespoons unsalted butter melted and cooled slightly
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg

Special Air Fryer Pizookie Recipe Notes

air fried mini pizookies

As noted, I cooked the dough for 6-7 minutes in the air fryer. With this time, the dough was still somewhat wet, but we had it sit for several minutes and it was our favorite consistency.

If you cook for 9 minutes then let the cookies set, the dough/cookies are pretty dried out (if that is what you love, then cook for up to 9 minutes).

The key to tasty cookies is to let it sit for several minutes, after baking, before enjoying

Pizookie Topping Ideas

pizookie with ice cream

I love to enjoy this recipe with my favorite vanilla ice cream and homemade hot fudge sauce! You may also enjoy pizookies with

  • caramel
  • peanut butter
  • MnM’s or other small candies
  • sprinkles
  • nuts such as pecans

But, honestly, these cookies taste just as good all my themselves. Plus, they are way more fun to eat than a normal cookie!

Other Ways You Can Make Air Fryer Pizookies

If you don’t have all the ingredients on hand to make homemade cookie dough, or if you don’t have ramekins, there are other variations to this recipe that you can try out. Check them out!

Use a pizza pan

I love mini pizookies because they are so much easier to eat all by yourself. But, you can also make this recipe like a traditional pizookie in an air fryer pizza pan. Make the dough and layer it on the pizza pan.

Cook the pizookie in the air fryer at 350 degrees Fahrenheit or 175 degrees Celsius for 8-13 minutes, depending on how done you want your cookie to be.

Use a different recipe

You don’t have to make a chocolate chip pizookie, or use my cookie dough recipe. Use your own favorite!

Or, you can switch out the chocolate chips with

  • white chocolate chips and pecans
  • MnM’s
  • Peanut butter chips
  • etc

Although, I haven’t tried this, I am sure these pizookies would still taste amazing with one of these recipes!

Use prepackaged cookie dough

If you don’t want to go through the hassle to make your own cookie batter, you can use prepackaged, and premade cookie dough! My favorite brand is Sweet Loren’s because they are gluten free, dairy free, vegan, and are peanut/tree nut free! You can use any of your favorite cookie dough brands like Pillsbury, Tollhouse, or Nestle.

  • Hi,
    I tried this for the first time. I did not have the ramekins so I used the 7″ pizza pan that I got for my Cosori air fryer. I had to cook this a lot longer than the directions. Almost 20 minutes to get the inside cooked. Did you use a bigger size pizza pan? Or is the inside supposed to be runny

    • Hi M C,

      Thanks for sharing your review with us! I appreciate the feedback and learning what works/doesn’t work for y’all!

      No, you want your cookie to be cooked and not runny for ultimate tastiness! Honestly, I have yet to try this recipe in the 7-inch pizza pan and used the temp/time for the pizza pan from what a different recipe blog suggested. Additionally, all air fryer cooking times are approximate since air fryer makes and models are different. You can expect it to never be exact. That is why it is so important to keep an eye on your food and adjust the time as needed. I’m sorry this took so much longer than expected!

      Thanks again for sharing your feedback.
