DomestiCAITed: Nutella Squares

When I was abroad in Rome, there was this incredible pizza place that served Nutella calzones for dessert. The recipe was simple enough – good pizza dough, Nutella filling, and the entire thing dusted with powdered sugar. Nom nom nom.

I think it’s fun to attempt to recreate foods you enjoy without the guide of a recipe. Sure, it won’t be perfect – but that’s okay too. This Thanksgiving, I decided to recreate the Nutella calzone, but on a smaller scale so that each one of my family members would have their own. The result-Nutella Squares. The perfect dessert to take you through the holiday season.

Ingredients you’ll need:

  •  pizza dough (can be homemade, Pillsbury, or even whole wheat)
  •  Nutella
  •  powdered sugar

Once you have all the ingredients, follow the instructions on the pizza dough you’re using and preheat the oven. Next, take the pizza dough of your choice and roll it out flat. Using a pizza cutter, slice the dough into squares and distribute a dollop of Nutella into the center of half of the squares of pizza dough.

Then, cover all the squares with Nutella with the plain squares, making sure to press down along the edges to keep the Nutella inside while your dessert bakes.

When the squares are light brown on the top, remove them from the oven, dust the tops with powerdered sugar and leave them to cool.

Finally, serve each pocket with a small scoop of the ice cream of your choice, and enjoy!

    • Caitlin Fitzgibbons

      You’re welcome! I hope she likes them. All of you will need to tell me how they turn out. You can also do the some recipe with puffed pastry instead of pizza dough!

    So my roommate and I made these today with some minor differences. First of all we had no pizza dough so we made our own with flour, baking powder, milk, salt and oil. (Next time we make these we plan to put some sugar or vanilla in them). Then we did some with Nutella, and some with strawberry jelly (which turned out to be my favorite). Then we did two of them with fluff and peanut butter that we fried in a little oil on the stove. These were amazing, took roughly 30 minutes to do everything including cook time and we didn’t have to go grocery shopping! Totally a new staple for desert in our apartment.

    I made these this evening, just for a snack when my bestie came over and we were chatting and gossiping, as you do 😉 They were utterly gorgeous, I served them with some creamy vanilla ice cream and it was utter heaven! Thank you so much for such a great idea!
