  4. Transfer the dough to the prepared baking sheet.
  5. Using your fingers, make indentations all over the dough.

I'm not rating this as I have not yet tried it! But as I read the recipe and reviews I just thought, you need to use a brownie mix for the pizza crust! It would be extreme chocolate, but would taste better than plain dough! You could even use refrigerated cookie dough!

I made this for PAC and we really enjoyed it. It is like dessert pizza you can get at restaurants, only better! I think this would be good with the addition of other ingredients too - like coconut or flavored chocolate chips. I will definitely make it again and try new combinations! Thanks!

Made this for a snack for the kids' sleepover this weekend, and it went over great! I used chopped roasted peanuts instead of the hazelnuts, because we had lots of them on hand, and also used peanut butter chips instead of the white chocolate chips. The boys asked to have this again the next time they stay over! Probably won't give it to them so close to bedtime next time though, LOL. Thanks for sharing!
