Has anyone ever tried . . .
« on: August 25, 2007, 11:29:59 AM »
Neapolitan pizza dough, cooked in a high-heat, wood-burning oven, topped with Nutella and a few dolops of whipped cream? I was really surprised not to see any topics about that on here.

Well, I hate to be Mr. Obvious, but it is to die for. Perfect with a good espresso to top off a margherita or three. I will have to snap a few pics and post them here the next time I make it.

They have it on the menu at the Neapolitan Pizzeria 'Amano' in Rdgewood NJ. I've also enjoyed  a pear based Dessert pizza in the past,in Italy.
It sems that Nutella is to Italians as Marmite is to the English and Vegemite is to Australians.

Nutella is definitely a staple for us Italians. But I think that it has a much broader appeal than marmite, et. al. It's chocolate for goodness sake! Who doesn't like chocolate?

Combined with the crispiness of the pizza its like a giant, squashed, warm Ferrero Rocher. Is there love greater than this?

fabio,

I was first introduced to Nutella on a trip to Switzerland... and was ecstatic to find that it is offered in American grocery stores... usually in the peanut butter/jelly section... at least out here in the Pacific Northwest!!  The label says it turns a slice of bread into a piece of chocolate cake, but I say.... to hell with the bread, JUST GIVE ME A SPOON and I'll eat it straight from the jar!  DH and I aren't big dessert-eaters (we'd rather sate ourselves with dinner!) but a Nutella pizza would certainly push me over the edge!  Thanks for the great idea!

BTW, "me step-faw-thah" is a Brit who lived in Oz for over 25 years... so I figured he would love both Marmite and Vegemite... "OH" he says... "They are WAY too salty for a proper diet!"  Cracked me up, he did!

Nutella rocks, although I've never made a dessert pizza with it. 

Check Costco for great pricing.

You guys just gave me a brilliant idea: A reese's pizza (nutella & peanut butter). Might be a little messy to spread, but probably worth it.

Fabio,  this is one that I have tried.  It really turns out great.  Instead of spreadding the peanut butter I just drop it on in little blobs.

I'm going to make one tonight. I'm thinking I will bake just the shell, then spread on the peanut butter, and sprinkle on some chocolate shavings. Maybe I will crumble up some reese's  just for fun. I will try to get a pic and post it here.

Hi all....I made a Reeses peanut butter cup calzone three weeks ago. I just chopped up some RPB cups and put them along with some mini marshmallows in a calzone. I brought it into work and people were a little skeptical at first but it was a big hit and everyone loved it. Next time I may try a Snickers calzone.

Do you put the nutella and whipped cream on before or after cooking?

After, otherwise both the nutella and the whipped cream will break apart; not a good scene.

Wow, I have actually never heard of anyone using nutella on pizza before! (Since I happen to put it on everything, I am definately going to have to try this recipe) :) Congrats on the delicious looking pizza!

Nutella... agreed is pretty close to heaven.  We dress ours with Nutella, fresh strawberries and sprinkle with powered sugar.

But at my house... we also make:  PBJ (yes... peanut butter and jelly...), brown sugar and cinnamon, and so on.

I started playing around with Nutella after I saw a post on Slice that had a dessert calzone with a Nutella and ricotta filling.  It sounded so good that I wanted to try it.  It tasted really good but we ended up using a calzone with a ricotta and dark chocolate chip filling and garnished it with powdered sugar and put chocolate syrup on the plate.

A good dessert that i have had with Nutella is a calzone with a banana and Nutella cooked, and then topped with ice cream.  My wife and I love it.

FABIO,
I bet you are the one that sent me the link of Jeff Verasano Pizza. I can't believe I am reading your post on this forum. Be careful about the nutella that you buy, they make one with High Fructose Corn Syrup, a very concentrated type of sugar that will eventually give you diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke and cancer. Ciao
