Day Eight: Deprivation and hallucination: Chocolate Pizza
As promised, here is a great recipe for Chocolate Pizza. I modified the recipe from “giada’s family dinners” cookbook.
1 pound of store bought or homemade pizza dough. (I prefer Perrecas in Schenectady)
3 teaspoons of melted butter (real butter, no substitutions)
Nutella Spread (chocolate hazelnut) to be used as desired
White chocolate chips
Semisweet chocolate chips
Chopped nuts of your choice
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
I roll out the dough and place into a regular pizza pan (9 inches). You can also line a baking sheet with parchment and place the rolled out dough on that, if you prefer.
Brush the dough with the melted butter and bake about 20 minutes. The crust will get nice and brown. Take it out and spread the Nutella over the crust.
Sprinkle with your choices of chocolate chips and nuts. Sky’s the limit!
Return the creation to the over for a minute or two so it all melts. Cut as you would a pizza and enjoy.
Now that is a beautiful thing! 38 days to go…..
