6 oz semi sweet chocolate chips

1/3 cup heavy whipping cream

¾ cup unsalted butter (room temperature)

¾ cup dark brown sugar

¼ cup sugar

2 tsp vanilla extract

1 ½ cup all purpose flour

1-2 tablespoons milk

½ cup semi sweet chocolate chips

 

Instructions:

  1. Unroll pie crust. Lay flat on a 12 inch pizza pan. Poke all over with a fork.
  2. Brush the top of the pie crust with melted butter.
  3. Sprinkle Oreo crumbs over the buttered pie crust.
  4. Bake pie crust at 350F for about 10 minutes, until edges start to brown.
  5. Remove crust from oven and allow to cool.
  6. For making the cookie dough, cream butter and sugars together until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes.
  7. Mix in vanilla extract.
  8. With mixer on low speed, add flour.
  9. Add milk to preferred thickness.
  10. Stir in chocolate chips. Dough will be thick, set aside.
  11. Place chocolate chips in a metal bowl.
  12. Microwave heavy cream until it starts to boil. Remove from microwave and pour over chocolate chips.
  13. Cover bowl with Saran wrap for 5-7 minutes.
  14. Whisk chocolate and cream until smooth.
  15. Allow ganache to sit for about 5 minutes, to thicken slightly, then pour over the pie crust and spread into an even layer.
  16. Drop bits of cookie dough on top of the chocolate ganache. It will create a thick layer of cookie dough.
  17. Top with chocolate sauce and additional chocolate chips.
  18. Store in refrigerator. Dough will be firm when cold, so remove from fridge about 20 minutes before serving, or pre-slice pizza.
