A Definitive Ranking of BJ's Restaurant's Pizookies

We're more than obsessed with BJ's Restaurant's Pizookies. and we're not ashamed of it.

Pizookies combine the satisfaction of a steaming hot tray of pizza with the sugary rush of a not-fully-baked cookie. Top that off with a couple of scoops of ice cream, and it's easy to see why these inventive and delicious treats are so popular.

All of BJ's Pizookies are undeniably amazing, but which flavor outweighs the rest? Keep scrolling for our definitive ranking of every BJ's Brewhouse Pizookie.

11. Monkey Bread Pizookie

Sadly, at the bottom of our list is the creative Monkey Bread Pizookie. While we like the idea of a freshly baked Monkey Bread dessert, the actual execution of this sweet treat brought it a little too far from the signature Pizookie realm. Instead of a cookie pizza, it felt like we were digging into a warm cinnamon roll topped with ice cream. Normally we wouldn't complain about such a yummy dessert, but if we're craving a Pizookie, we want a bit more of a classic approach.

10. Hot Fudge Brownie Pizzokie

It physically pains us to put this Hot Fudge Brownie Pizookie so low on this list, but we crave Pizookies when we're looking for a dessert we just can't find anywhere else, and this is not it. BJ's definitely didn't invent scooping ice cream and toppings on a hot brownie, and even though it's one of the best we've had, we don't really consider it a Pizookie in the first place.

9. Sugar Cookie Pizookie

This Sugar Cookie Pizookie is so delicious, with its warm, ooey-gooey and buttery cookie having just the right amount of crunch with the vanilla ice cream, but guess what? It's also the most basic option on this list. It's delicious, and we love the classics, but there are many more exciting options to come as the list continues.

8. Peanut Butter Pizookie

We. Love. Peanut Butter. Seriously, we have an emotional attachment to the buttery, nutty concoction, so slipping the Peanut Butter Pizookie into eighth place was really hard for us. If you want a super traditional Pizookie that's a bit different from the classic chocolate chunk, peanut butter is the way to go. For us, we were just missing the zing of flavor that really kicks the pizookie up a notch. We're normally fully on board with a straightforward approach to our desserts, but the Peanut Butter Pizookie was just a little too simplistic to earn a higher place on our list.

7. Salted Caramel Pizookie

Finding the right balance of ingredients to put into a dessert is difficult. Where the Peanut Butter Pizookie was too simple, the Salted Caramel Pizookie was a little too complicated. In general, it accomplished that salty-sweet balance that we were expecting, but there were so many little bits of candy to chew on that we couldn't just enjoy the dessert. If they had eliminated either the pretzel bits or the almond toffee we think we would have enjoyed it more, but both of those crunchy sweets created some confusion for our taste buds. We love the Pizookie for the signature "melt in your mouth" feel, so chewing our way through this dessert ruined a bit of the Pizookie experience.

6. White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Pizookie

We're not usually big fans of nuts in our desserts, but the White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Pizookie definitely hits the spot. It's basically everything you want out of a Pizookie. The white chocolate and macadamia nuts are combined evenly so neither flavor is super overwhelming in our mouths. They both add just enough crunch to keep the dessert interesting without distracting too much from all the yummy flavors. Plus, the Pizookie has that signature gooey center that just naturally makes everything taste so much better.

5. Strawberry Shortcake Pizookie

Where the Sugar Cookie Pizookie ranks lower on the list because it's too simple, the Strawberry Shortcake Pizookie takes that same base and runs with it. It layers that basic Pizookie and tops it with sweet and tangy strawberry puree, plus vanilla ice cream and whipped cream for a more well-rounded experience. The light fruit means it doesn't feel as heavy, making it a go-to when you want something light and refreshing—but still definitely a Pizookie.

4. Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Pizookie

We'll have to admit we were shocked with how good this Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Pizookie is. Often, gluten-free cookies are too dense, with the wrong texture and a flavor that's just off, but that's not at all the case with this Pizookie. The chocolate chip flavor is so classic you just can't go wrong with it—though we believe it'd be even better with chocolate chunks.

3. Chocolate Chunk Pizookie

We're big fans of tradition, so it's pretty hard to top the classic Pizookie flavor for us. The Chocolate Chunk Pizookie is always an awesome option, and it easily slides into the third spot on our list because it's just so darn reliable. The chocolate chunks are just big enough to infuse the cookie with creamy goodness, and the vanilla ice cream adds a nice burst of freshness that we love. It's one of those desserts that we're never not in the mood for, which means it must be pretty yummy.

2. Cookies 'N' Cream Pizookie

No matter how hard we try, we can't escape how much we love Oreos. If you put Oreo flavor into anything, it's almost guaranteed to succeed. The Cookies 'N' Cream Pizookie infuses a chocolate base with that creamy Oreo flavor we love, and it all just works. It tastes like you melted Oreos into a brownie, which does have the potential to be a little heavy, but the addition of the ice cream freshens everything right up. It's not too sweet or too complicated, but it builds on a classic flavor to create an almost unbeatable taste. Honestly, there's nothing we don't love about this creamy Pizookie.

1. Triple Chocolate Pizookie

We've gotta say: We were a little nervous about this flavor. As the name suggests, this Pizookie is just chocolate on chocolate on chocolate, and we were positive it was going to be an absolutely overwhelming flavor. However, we were pleasantly surprised. Everything just works. We can't even pinpoint exactly what about this concoction makes it so perfect, but our taste buds agree that this Pizookie is a simply magical choice. It has that classic Pizookie taste and feel in a rich dessert that will definitely have you craving more. 12/10 for this yummy treat.
