Chocolate Pizza
Chocolate Pizza
(Pizza al Cioccolato)
 
 
Ingredients:

For Pizza Dough:
3/4 cup warm water (105 F to 115 F)
1 envelope active dry yeast
2 cups (or more) all purpose flour
1 teaspoon sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

For Topping:
2 tablespoons butter (1/4 stick), melted
1/4 cup chocolate-hazelnut spread (such as Nutella)
1/2 cup chopped bittersweet or semisweet chocolate
2 tablespoons chopped high-quality white chocolate (such as Lindt or Perugina)
2 tablespoons chopped toasted hazelnuts

Directions:
 
Prepare the pizza dough by pouring 3/4 cup warm water into small bowl; stir in yeast. Let stand until yeast dissolves, about 5 minutes.

Brush large bowl lightly with olive oil.

Mix 2 cups flour, sugar, and salt in processor.
 
Add yeast mixture and 3 tablespoons olive oil; process until dough forms a sticky ball.

Transfer to lightly floured surface.
 
Knead dough until smooth, adding more flour by tablespoonfuls if dough is very sticky, about 1 minute.

Transfer to prepared bowl; turn dough in bowl to coat with olive oil.
 
Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let dough rise in warm draft-free area until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.
 
Punch down dough (can be made 1 day ahead).

Store in airtight container in refrigerator.

Preheat oven to 450 F.
 
Line large baking sheet with parchment.
 
Roll out dough on lightly floured surface to 11-inch round (start in center of dough, working outward toward edges but not rolling over them).

Transfer dough to prepared sheet.
 
Make indentations all over dough with fingertips.

Brush melted butter over.
 
Bake until pale golden, about 20 minutes.

Smooth chocolate-hazelnut spread over hot crust.
 
Sprinkle chopped bittersweet chocolate and white chocolate over.

Bake until chocolate begins to melt, about 2 minutes.

Sprinkle chopped hazelnuts over, cut into wedges, and serve. Serves 6.

That's it!
