    Hi, I am Anna Zeccolo with Tiny Chefs. We are making Chocolate Pizza and we are going to top our pizza. We've rolled out our sugar cookie dough and the first thing you want to do when topping your pizza is to spread a little hazelnut spread on it, and you want to go ahead and start in the middle. Just keep your spatula down and spread the Nutella out. You want to make sure that you leave room for crust as a normal pizza has crust, so does the cookie pizza. You can make the Nutella as thick or as thin as you like. Once you get the Nutella out, spread out, you go ahead and top it with your choice of chips. Today, we are using white chocolate chips. You just sprinkle about two tablespoons of white chocolate chips around and milk chocolate chips. There, a couple of more. Now, we are done making our chocolate pizza. We are going to place it on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake it off for about 10-15 minutes on 350 degrees. Be very careful when you are transferring the pizza over to the cookies pan. If it breaks a little bit, you just push it back together like that. There we have our chocolate pizza. Now, we are going to make Cinnamon Button.
