  • 4 oz Chocolate Hazelnut Spread (Nutella)
  • 1 tbsp Melted Butter

  • Roll your dough out with flour if needed and cut in half so that both measure about 12” long and 8.5” wide. It doesn’t have to be perfect.

  • On one of the doughs, spread your Nutella all over.
  • Place other dough on top covering the one below it completely.
  • Cut into a triangle and set scraps to the side.
  • Slice slits on both sides, not going all the way through to create your “branches”.
  • Twist each branch so Nutella slightly shows.

  • Place on baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 25 mins or until golden brown.

Important Dough Guidelines

  1. Keep in the fridge for up to 50 days.
    ** Speed up proofing by placing the vacuum-sealed dough in a bowl of hot water. Let it sit for 20 minutes or until the center reaches room temperature. **

  2. Round the dough with flour to prevent sticking, brush with olive oil, put in a bowl, and cover.

  3. Let the dough rise for at least 3.5 hours before using.

  4. Preheat your oven to 475°F or higher, if possible.

    Rounding pizza dough is a crucial step in the pizza-making process.
