Method

  1. Pre-heat oven to 400°F.
  2. In a small microwavable bowl, combine white chocolate chips and vegetable oil. Microwave on high for 45 seconds to 1 minute, stirring every 15 seconds until melted. Reserve and keep warm.
  3. In a small mixing bowl, combine Nutella®, TABASCO® Chipotle Pepper Sauce and melted butter.
  4. On a flat work surface, flatten pizza dough into a 12" circle, leaving a 1/2" raised rim around the edge. Place on a wooden pizza peel sprinkled with cornmeal. Using a fork, poke holes all over dough.
  5. Bake 8-10 minutes until golden brown. Cool for a few minutes. Spread with Nutella® mixture and top with dark and semisweet chocolate chips. Return to oven and bake an additional 1-2 minutes, until chocolate has melted. Remove from oven and top with hazelnuts and drizzle with melted white chocolate. Cool for 2-3 minutes and dust with cocoa powder. Cut into slices and serve warm.
