Pizza Pie Cafe Inspired Dessert …

I recently discovered a place called Pizza Pie Cafe.

It is amazing to say the least.

They have a whole slew of pizzas of all different varieties that are just delicious.  However, it is there dessert pizzas that have me going back again and again.

My mom came up recently to visit and to go out to lunch.  She had never been to Pizza Pie Cafe so we decided she HAD to try it out.  She instantly fell in love and started gushing about how delicious the dessert pizzas were.  We decided we were going to attempt to recreate these amazing pizzas!  If you haven’t been to this restaurant, you need to check it out at least once and sample there dessert pizza buffet.

Two of our favorites were the Oreo and the Cookie Dough dessert pizzas.  Ours tasted a little different than the originals, but they were still DELICIOUS!

Let’s start with the dough…

PIZZA DOUGH

2 cups warm water
1 T. yeast
1/2 Tbsp. salt
1 Tbsp. sugar
5 cups flour, divided
2 T. olive oil (or shortening)

1. Mix warm water and yeast, let sit 5 minutes.
2. Add 2 ½ cups flour and mix well in Kitchen Aid or with a dough hook.
3. Add additional 2 ½ cups flour and salt, knead. Let dough rest in a ball for 10 to 20 minutes.
4. Pour 2 Tbsp. olive oil onto pan
5. Roll dough very thin and place in greased pan
6. Preheat oven to 400 F
7. Divide dough in half.  This recipe is good for two pizzas.  I made one Oreo and one cookie dough but you could do two of the same instead.  Just double the ingredients listed under each dessert pizza’s ingredients if you choose to do that.

First up, I will show you the Cookie Dough Pizza.

COOKIE DOUGH PIZZA

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1-1/2 to 2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
Mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Cream butter and sugar together.
Add dry ingredients and mix together.  You want it to be a little thicker than your typical cookie dough so add more flour if needed.
Mix in mini semi-sweet chocolate chips.
Crumble on top of second pizza dough.
Bake at 400 for 15-18 minutes.
While pizza is cooking,
Make the glaze.
When the pizza is cooked and out of the oven, drizzle the cream cheese glaze, caramel topping, and a fudge topping. (I use the jar toppings for the caramel and fudge)

CREAM CHEESE GLAZE
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 ounces cream cheese, softened
2-1/2 to 3 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 cup Heavy cream

Cream butter and cream cheese together. Beat in powdered sugar. Blend in vanilla and salt.  Add in heavy cream and beat until well combined.  Adjust Heavy cream and powdered sugar to get glaze to your desired consistency.

Next up is the Oreo Pizza
(I know the Oreo pizza picture is kind of lame, but it went fast and this was the only piece left!  I wish I could show you the whole pizza because it is just as gorgeous!)

It was so YUMMY!

OREO DESSERT PIZZA

40 oreos
softened butter

Crush Oreo’s finely in a food processor.
Smear a layer of butter over top the pizza dough.
Sprinkle on the crushed Oreos
Bake at 400 F for 15-18 minutes
When Pizza is out of the oven, drizzle with cream cheese glaze and a caramel sauce

Enjoy!

  1. The proper of making pizza is to prepare all things that need put and to mix it. This will take as more delicious as you make it. This could be amazing when it all finished. And it was perfectly great when it stated all the preparations for pizza.

    I was looking throughout the entries on tt&j and the picture caught my eye! This looks wonderful. I am a total cookie dough addict. I really like your blog, going to go check out some of your other posts now, ttyl!

  5. Becky, I am so sorry it took me so long to get back to you! I hope it turned out. It was a typo on my end and I forgot to add the cream cheese into the recipe. I apologize for any incontinence that caused you and hope it still turned out okay. Thanks for bringing that to my attention.

    I was browsing your site for some new recipes and came across this and I had to comment, because I actually worked at Pizza Pie Cafe in Provo for 4 years in college! So you were really close to the actual recipe, I’m impressed! The main difference is that they actually use a cream cheese frosting as the base on the dessert pizzas. You smother a good amount of cream cheese frosting on the crust first (like you would your pizza sauce), then you add your cookie dough or Oreos and bake, then the toppings. One of our favorites was to make a cookie dough pizza then put the Oreo crumbles on top of that and bake. It is amazing! Another fun one is to use a rasberry filling, something similar to a donut filling, smother that on the pizza crust then put peanut butter cookie dough crumbles on top and bake, PB&J pizza! So yummy! Great post!
