Friends, this is my first Nutella dessert ever.

Ever ever.

If you follow me on Instagram, you saw how much my daughter enjoyed taste-testing.

(My almost-3-year-old that is, and not the 4 month old!)

So normally, I will just eat full-on comfort food all year round. Soups, pastas, breads, brownies, cakes, cheesecakes – it doesn’t matter what it is or how hot it is outside.

I never really knew what my “style” of cooking was until I started a blog. But I think I can officially say I have a thing for sugary, fatty comfort food.

That being said, I also have a thing for balance and moderation (or at least I try to!), and I try to sneak in the occasional healthy or light recipe.

At least in January.

But I know that summer’s around the corner and some people are all about the fresh fruits and veggies, so I put some on a pizza.

See? Balance.

I totally balanced out all that chocolate with the fresh berries.

You’re welcome.

There are times, when you’re a food blogger, that you might make something and it kind of falls flat (in more ways than one…). There are also times when you make something and it totally exceeds your expectations.

This is one of those times, friends.

Just, WOW.

I’ve been wanting to make a brownie base fruit pizza for-like-ever. Nutella sauce just seemed to go. I stuck to fresh berries, because, well, berries and chocolate.

I was a little worried the brownie base might get dry because it’s so thin, or that it might be too flimsy and not hold up. Except it was perfect. It was totally fudgy and yet firm at the same time. You could even just pick up a slice of fruit pizza and eat it with your hands.

You’re going to have a little leftover brownie batter, so bake it up in an 8×8” pan for about the same time and I’m sure you can figure out something to do with it 😉

I didn’t want my berries (particularly the strawberries, which are sliced) to get dry and weird while sitting out, so I made a simple glaze to brush over them, and it keeps them so juicy. You could leave it off if you’re going to serve immediately, but I wouldn’t recommend it if it’s going to be stored for any length of time.

I sent this with the husband to his work, and I think his coworkers were just relieved not to have to eat more of my fails. I think they’ve probably forgiven me for all of the “test batches” they’ve helped me eat 🙂

Ingredients

For the brownie crust:

  • 1 cup melted butter
  • 2 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt

For the “sauce”:

  • 1 8 oz pkg chocolate cream cheese or sub plain, and just add sugar if needed to sweeten
  • 1 cup Nutella

For the glaze:

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tsp corn starch
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp strawberry jam

To assemble:

  • About 1/2 cups sliced strawberries
  • About 1/2 cup blueberries
  • About 1 cup raspberries
  • 1/2 cup chopped chocolate or chocolate chips
  • 1-2 tbsp milk

Instructions

  • For the crust:Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease a 14-16” pizza pan or line with parchment paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine butter and sugar with a whisk until smooth, 1-2 minutes. Add vanilla and eggs and whisk until smooth.
  • Add flour, cocoa powder and salt and stir just until smooth. (batter will be somewhat thick)
  • Spread a thin layer of brownie batter on the bottom of the pan (I used a 16” pan and made about a 13” circle – it will expand somewhat). You should have about ½” of brownie batter on the pan. Spread remaining batter into an 8×8” pan and bake alongside.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, until set and a toothpick comes out clean or with moist crumbs. Cool completely (can be made ahead and frozen).
  • For the “sauce”:With an electric mixer, beat cream cheese and Nutella until smooth.
  • For the glaze:In a small pot, combine water, corn starch and sugar with a whisk. Heat over medium heat, whisking, until sugar and corn starch are dissolved. Stir in jam, and continue cooking and whisking until thickened. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
  • To assemble:Spread “sauce” over brownie crust. Layer with strawberries, raspberries and blueberries. Brush berries with glaze.
  • Melt together chocolate and milk in a small pot on low heat. Drizzle over finished pizza.
  • Store in the refrigerator, uncovered, up to a few hours. To store longer than that, I recommend freezing the crust (with the sauce on it if you desire), then thawing and topping before serving.

    The flavor and presentation was very nice and well received at a family BBQ. My only tip would be to have a decent amount of powdered sugar on hand because I ended up adding about a half to one cup worth to the frosting to give it the consistency I was looking for. Without it the cream cheese and nutella mixed together had a greasy look and was separating. Once I mixed in the powdered sugar though it came together beautifully. The fruit combined with the delish chocolate was a crowd pleaser, especially the raspberries!

      Haha, I wish I could! I ate the one piece that I cut to photograph, and then promptly shooed my husband out the door to work with it. Lol. It would not have been safe here!

  2. Stacey @ Bake Eat Repeat says

    Okay, those pictures just made me think that maybe I could like Nutella after all! I know – not a fan, even though I’m a complete chocoholic. So I’ve never made anything with it either. But this looks incredible so I may need to try Nutella in a dessert – I may like it that way!

  3. Izzy says

    Ummm, this looks freaking amazing, Ashley!! Seriously so beautiful and delicious! Is it lame that I’ve only ever eaten nutella on toast and not on delicious brownies like this? I need this now!!

    • Ashley says

      You do need this! And not that lame, because I’d never even really purchase Nutella before. Lol

  4. marcie says

    Your first Nutella dessert? You outdid yourself! This is SO beautiful, Ashley, and it’s almost too pretty to eat. I love how you styled this, your photos are lovely, and just everything about this is perfection! Pinned…a LOT. 🙂

    • Ashley says

      Haha, I’m sure I have just as much yet to lose! I like to consider this my reward for working out 😀

    • Ashley says

      I’m so glad we’re on the same page! I mean, think of all the antioxidants 🙂 Thanks Amanda!

    • Ashley says

      Haha, if only I hadn’t send it to my husband’s coworkers to devour so that I wouldn’t eat the whole thing!

    Hi Ashley! love raspberries and chocolate, so I would go all raspberry on this! My son has never been a big fan of chocolate (my son?), his favorite desserts are pumpkin bars and cheesecake. However, he recently discovered Nutella, so there might be hope him! 🙂

  6. Danielle says

    It’s a good thing I’ve already had breakfast or I might have gone in the kitchen to make this right now. Holy yum! This looks incredible, Ashley! I have a thing for sugary comfort food too, it’s the best 😉

  7. Gayle @ Pumpkin 'N Spice says

    Isn’t nutella the best?! I’m seriously addicted to it! I also just made a recipe using nutella this weekend, but it’ll be a few weeks before it makes its debut! 🙂 I’m LOVING this pizza, Ashley! Looks amazing!
