    Hi, I am Anna Zeccolo with Tiny Chefs. Today, I am showing you how to make Fun Desserts for kids. We are going to begin with Chocolate Pizza and the ingredients needed for chocolate pizza is sugar cookie dough. I have purchased some pre-packaged sugar cookie mix, and it's about half of the package. We are also going to need a little bit of flour. We are going to need about three tablespoons of white chocolate chips, three tablespoons of milk chocolate chips, and about two tablespoons of a chocolate hazelnut spread. The first thing you need to do is flour your work surface. We are going to sprinkle a little flour on the work surface, the rolling pin, as well as the cookie dough. You are going to begin rolling out your dough by just rolling it in the middle, and you are trying to flatten out the dough. So, it's about one-forth inch thick along the whole dough. It's okay if it's not in a perfect circle. Once you get the dough rolled out to about a one-forth inch thickness, here we go, the next step is to top your pizza.
