Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 16
Ingredients
  • 1 - 16.5 ounce package refrigerated sugar cookie dough
  • or homemade
  • ⅔ cup Nutella Hazelnut Spread
  • 2 cups chopped fruit (such as strawberries or maraschino cherries)
  • ¼ cup slivered almonds
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Open package of cookie dough and cut in half. Roll both pieces into 8" circles with a rolling pin. Transfer dough to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes, until edges are just set but not yet browned.
  3. Place the baking sheets on cooling racks and allow cookies to cool completely.
  4. After cooling, spread ⅓ cup Nutella on each cookie and set in the refrigerator to chill 1 hour.
  5. Sprinkle pizzas with chopped fruit and slivered almonds. Cut into wedges and serve!
Notes
- I find it easiest to roll the refrigerated cookie dough into circles by placing a piece of parchment paper between the dough and rolling pin. This way the dough won't stick!

- 11 minutes was just about the perfect bake time for my oven. You want the edges of the cookie to be firm but not browned and the center should still appear soft. It will firm up after cooling.

- I think these dessert pizzas are best served cold, so I keep mine in the refrigerator until serving. It's also much easier to cut the pizzas into pretty wedges when they're chilled!

- Prep time does not include chill time.
