For the cookie:

  • 1 1/2 cups (6.75 ounces or 191 grams) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick (4 ounces) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips

For the caramel apple topping:

  • 2 large Granny Smith or Jonathan apples, cored, peeled, and diced
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons butter

For finishing:

  • 10 caramel square candies, unwrapped
  • 1/4 cup cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • Vanilla ice cream


For the cookie:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Spray two 6-inch pie plates or cast iron servers with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt to combine.
  3. In a large bowl stir the butter with the sugars. Let cool slightly if the butter is still hot. Whisk in the egg and vanilla and beat until combined. Add in the flour mixture and stir with a spatula until incorporated. Fold in the white chocolate chips.
  4. Divide the dough between the prepared pie plates. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until the edges are slightly browned but the inside is still gooey, or until desired doneness.

For the caramel apple topping:

  1. While the pizza cookies are baking, make the topping. Toss all the ingredients except the butter in a large bowl. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the apple mixture and cook, stirring often, until the apples soften, about 8 minutes. Keep warm until ready to use.

For the caramel topping:

  1. Place the caramels and cream in a small saucepan set over medium-low heat. Cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture is melted and smooth. Stir in the salt.

To finish:

  1. Divide the apple topping among the warm pizza cookies. Top each with a scoop of ice cream and drizzle with the caramel sauce. Serve very warm.
