Chocolate-Hazelnut Pizza Recipe

You can have your pizza and eat it too (or at least, something like that). Topped with chocolate-hazelnut spread and sprinkled with three different flavored chips, this sweet treat will make the kids go wild (and some adults too).


To toast hazelnuts, heat oven to 350° and spread nuts in ungreased shallow pan. Bake uncovered 6 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until light brown. Rub nuts in a kitchen towel to remove loose skins (some skins may not come off).

This pizza will serve 12 and takes about 55 minutes to make from start to finish.

Make it for your next party or your next dinner (whichever comes first).


1 can refrigerated classic pizza crust

1/2 cup hazelnut spread with cocoa

1/4 cup dark chocolate chips

2 tablespoons semi-sweet chocolate chips

2 tablespoons white vanilla baking chips

1 teaspoon vegetable oil

1/4 cup hazelnuts (filberts), toasted, skins removed, chopped


1. Heat oven to 400°F. Grease 12-inch pizza pan with shortening, or spray with cooking spray. Unroll dough in pan. Starting at center, press out dough with hands, forming 1/2-inch rim.

2. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately spread with hazelnut spread; sprinkle with dark chocolate and semisweet chocolate chips. Bake 1 to 2 minutes longer or just until chocolate begins to melt.

3. In small microwavable bowl, microwave white vanilla baking chips and vegetable oil uncovered on High 30 to 60 seconds, stirring every 15 seconds, until melted. Sprinkle hazelnuts on pizza. Drizzle with melted white chips. Cool 5 minutes. Cut into wedges. Serve warm.

To drizzle the melted white vanilla chips over the pizza, pour melted mixture into a re-sealable food-storage plastic bag, cut off a small tip from a corner of the bag, and squeeze bag to drizzle.
