Nutella pizza and other suggestions
This week's Nutella story has three recipes that call for either homemade or purchased Nutella. Here's another one: Nutella pizza (right). Although you don't really need a recipe.
Just bake a crust using a basic pizza dough recipe (try using hazelnut oil instead of olive oil and adding a bit of sugar), and when the crust is still warm from the oven, assemble the pizza. I used homemade hazelnut-chocolate spread on this one, then added raspberries, bananas and toasted hazelnuts. The powdered sugar on the crust you get by placing a round piece of paper or parchment, cut small enough to show the crust, over the top of the pizza and sifting powdered sugar over the top. Or try shaved chocolate and strawberries. Or chocolate chips and cream whipped with orange zest.
Nutella is also great to frost cupcakes or cakes, to stir into a cup of hot chocolate (or coffee) and as a filling for panini. So far most of the suggestions I've gotten on my Facebook page are for eating the stuff on bread or with a spoon. If you have more ideas, or a favorite recipe that calls for Nutella, I'd love to hear about them.
