Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and when you think of who and what you love, many things probably come to mind. It might be your kids or your spouse, maybe your dog or new job. Or maybe it’s champagne and raspberries and the creamy, chocolaty decadence of warm Nutella desserts. Just me? I love Valentine’s Day because behind all the cheesy cards and coworkers’ rose bouquets is a chance to spend some time with the one you love. It’s also a great excuse to be a little extravagant and savor rich desserts like this Nutella dessert pizza.
Instead of a little cookie or a cupcake, we opted for a large pizza with a made-from-scratch crust. It’s topped while warm so the hazelnut spread glides over every bump with ease, and then it’s topped with fresh raspberries and gold flecked hearts. You can substitute strawberries, pomegranate seeds or any other berry – or make it kid friendly and let them decorate it with colorful sprinkles. No matter how you top it, this rich Nutella and raspberry dessert pizza is guaranteed to win some hearts on Valentine’s Day.
