A delicious dessert pizza topped with rich and creamy chocolate hazelnut spread, sweet strawberries and vanilla icing.
Hi, it's Jenn, from Eat Cake For Dinner. Today, I'm sharing a really simple and totally delicious dessert pizza with you that is perfect for Valentine's Day. I love Valentine's Day. Not because of all the lovey-dovey stuff, but because of all the beautiful red and pink decorations and goodies . . . oh and the chocolate. You can't forget the chocolate!
Strawberries and chocolate hazelnut spread are a match made in heaven. I have combined these two ingredients in cupcakes before and now in a dessert pizza.
This dessert has just the right amount of sweetness and won't leave you feeling weighed down. The crust is soft and chewy, the chocolate hazelnut spread is rich and creamy, the strawberries are vibrant and sweet and the vanilla icing adds a final layer of flavor. My Dad (whose birthday happens to be on Valentine's Day) is a big fan of dessert pizzas and he loved this version and I know you will too.
Let me show you how easy these are to make . . .
First, get all of your ingredients ready. You will need thawed Rhodes Dinner Rolls, chocolate hazelnut spread, sliced strawberries, powdered sugar, vanilla and milk (not pictured).
Spray your counter lightly with cooking spray. Press two rolls together to form a ball and roll out to roughly a 5-inch circle. Transfer to a greased baking sheet. Poke a few holes on top with a fork to help prevent them from puffing up too much while baking. Bake in preheated oven until lightly golden. Cool completely.
When cool, spread each with a good amount of chocolate hazelnut spread.
Top each with an outer layer of sliced strawberries.
Then, repeat with another layer of sliced strawberries in the center.
Prepare icing by combining powdered sugar, vanilla and milk. Drizzle vanilla icing over pizzas. Slice and serve.

Mini Strawberry Chocolate Hazelnut Pizzas With Vanilla Icing
10 Rhodes Dinner Rolls, thawed but still cold
5 heaping Tbl. chocolate hazelnut spread
1/2 Lb. (8 oz.) strawberries, sliced
1/2 c. powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 - 1 Tbl. milk
Place frozen dinner rolls in a 9x13-inch pan, cover tightly, and allow to thaw in the refrigerator overnight. In the morning, combine two thawed rolls and roll into a ball. Repeat. You will have five total dough balls. Spray counter lightly with cooking spray and roll out each dough ball into roughly a 5-inch circle. Transfer to a lightly greased baking sheet. Using a fork, poke a few holes into the top of each circle. This will help keep them from puffing up too much while baking.
Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 10-11 minutes or until slightly golden. Allow to cool completely. Spread a heaping Tablespoon of chocolate hazelnut spread over the top of each crust. Top each with an outer layer of sliced strawberries, then repeat with another layer of sliced strawberries in the center. In a small bowl, combine powdered sugar, vanilla and 1/2 Tablespoon of milk and stir until smooth and creamy. If it's too thick, add a little more milk. Drizzle vanilla icing over the top of each pizza. Slice and serve.
