Cuisine: Inter-regional
Serves: 6
  1. Preheat the oven to highest temperature it will go (usually 250C). Divide the pizza dough into 6 parts. Place one section of the dough on parchment paper. Roll the pizza into a round and use your hands to shape into a heart.
  2. Brush the top with melted butter and bake in a hot oven, preferably on a heated baking stone or overturned baking tray until golden, about 10-15 minutes.
  3. While hot, spread nutella over top of the pizza and sprinkle with hazelnuts. Serve while hot. Repeat with the remaining dough.
