Mini Chocolate Pizzas for BFB

chocolate pizza

Happy Puthandu and Vishu wishes to all of you! A couple of months back I saw Giada preparing chocolate pizzas in her Food TV show, Everyday Italian.  It looked so delicious that I wanted to try it.  To make the pizza I used the store bought refrigerated pizza dough.  First I thought of cutting a big circle using a plate, then I got an idea of making it into bite sized pizzas, so I used a cookie cutter and cut out 6 small circles.  With the rest of the dough, I tried to form it into one big circle (which was a bit difficult) and baked a regular vegetable pizza.

chocolate pizza ingredients

Stage 1:
Unroll the pizza dough and cut it into the desired shape.

Stage 2:
Place it in a lined baking sheet, make indentations throughout the dough and brush it with melted butter.  If you are doing the mini version like mine just bake it for 6-8 minutes at 450 F or until the crust is crisp and golden brown.  If you are making a big one, follow the instructions in the original recipe.

Stage 3:
Remove the sheet from the oven apply nutella immediately and sprinkle the chocolate chips and put it back in the oven just enough for the chocolate to melt, which is about 1 minute.

Stage 4:
Take the pizzas out and sprinkle with hazelnuts and enjoy. It's SIMPLY DELICIOUS!

My Notes:
This is a fun food idea to do with the kids.  This is also a good idea for a "make your own pizza" party, where a pizza bar can be set up with a variety of nut butters, toppings like butterscotch chips, peanut butter chips, vanilla chips etc and different kinds of nuts, sprinkles etc so children can have fun creating their own pizzas.

    I am back after a nice little break 🙂

    I am not sure if the Pizza joints sell their dough. I’ll definitely ask them this next time I visit one.

    Pizza base is readily available in supermarkets. May be I can cut them into cookie shaped pieces and directly go to step (3).

    Thanks for your guidance. I am getting to learn lots from you.

    Hi Nela, thanks for stopping by. I’m glad that you like my recipes.

    I buy the Pillsbury refrigerated pizza crust and did check for the ingredients once earlier and again now after reading your comment. It did not mention anything about eggs. Moreover even while preparing pizza dough at home we don’t add eggs, so I think the store bought ones also are made without eggs only. If you happen to know any other information about this, please let me know. Thank You.

    I love your recipes coz they are eggless. But the store bought pizza dough has eggs in them. Did you check it out?

    Roma, back from your vacation? I think you get pizza base in India, you can use that itself, as long as it’s not topped with cheese. Or if you have any pizza parlors around you can ask for the dough. Here the pizza places sell their dough too. I’m not sure about India.

    This is an innovative recipe for chocoholics!!

    I dont get Pizza dough around here. I need to learn the recipe of the dough and make it. This dish is worth it!

    Dee, Mansi that’s a nice idea. We can also top it with a dollop of whipped cream, to give it a gourmet look, I guess.

    Thank you Saradha, Nandita and Kaykat.
