All of my children have favorite desserts. Brian loves the cream cheese pound cake, cheesecake, chocolate chip cookies and brownies. Malorie loves the pumpkin roll, cream cheese pound cake, banana pudding, red velvet cake and fudge pie. But Casey only ever asks for one dessert: chocolate pizza. He would eat it every single day if I would make it that often. Fortunately, chocolate pizza is probably the easiest dessert there is to make. It’s just pizza dough spread with Nutella with chocolate chips sprinkled on top. That’s it!
I found this recipe several years ago in one of my favorite cookbooks, Giada’s Family Dinners. Of course, I make it slightly different from Giada, because I add a lot more chocolate. But either way, it’s a great, easy, weeknight kid-pleasing dessert.
Start by spreading pizza dough into a cookie sheet then brushing with a couple of tablespoons of melted butter.
Bake this for about 20 minutes, until crust is brown and crisp. Then spread a few tablespoons of Nutella over the crust.
Over the Nutella, you just sprinkle any combination of chocolate chips: semi-sweet, bittersweet, milk, white, or even peanut butter and/or butterscotch. Then pop it back in the oven for a couple of minutes, just until the chips begin to melt.
That’s it…the easiest dessert you will ever make and perfect for the chocoholics in your family.
