Welcome to Tasty Tuesday. I’m plucking a recipe from the Cook Like A Writer cook book for this week, as I’ve been in my writer’s cave, participating in the BOOK IN A MONTH CLUB.
I’m also interviewed on Lucy Pireel’s blog today. If you have a moment, click HERE and hop on over to Lucy’s blog and say hello, that is, after you pick up this recipe that I know you’ll want to try.
Most people love pizza.
Most people love chocolate.
Why not put those two together for a heavenly experience? The only thing missing is the stuffed crust, but then again, what’s stopping you from using your imagination and stuffing the crust with more chocolate?
Chocolate Pizza is also a favorite of Maddie Saunders, the heroine in What A Girl Wants. I swear that girl would dip broccoli and asparagus in chocolate if she could.
Kids will love this pizza and the kid in the adult will also enjoy a slice…or two.
Pizza dough (store-bought or homemade)
1/2 stick unsalted butter (about 2 tablespoons butter) melted
1/4 cup as Nutella spared
3/4 cup milk chocolate chips
For Optional Toppings see below
Preheat oven to 450°F.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Sprinkle some flour on your working surface.
Roll out dough on the surface (if using a round pizza pan, then roll out to fit pan, or if using a square pan roll out to fit that pan)
Transfer dough to baking sheet.
Using your thumb, make indentations all over the dough.
Brush the dough with melted butter over.
Bake for about 20 minutes (until dough is a light golden.)
Remove from oven and spread the Nutella over the hot crust.
Sprinkle the chocolate chips all over and return to the oven.
Bake for another 2 – 3 minutes or until chocolate begins to melt.
Cut into slices.
Delicious this way, or experiment with the optional toppings below, or some of
your own creations.
Mini marshmallows (sprinkle on top and broil for 1 – 2 minutes, until marshmallows are golden)
Sprinkle with chopped hazelnuts before serving
Sprinkle with shredded coconut before serving
Add colorful M&M’s before serving
Sprinkle a bit of cayenne pepper, for that sweet & spicy experience
