Chocolate and hazelnut pizza with banana honey ricotta and caramelised hazelnuts 

Ingredients 
 250 grams pizza dough – see recipe     
6 tablespoons chocolate & hazelnut paste 
2 ½  bananas sliced 3mm thick
6 tablespoon ricotta cheese
1 tablespoons milk 
1  tablespoon honey
 
To serve
6 x 30 scoop  vanilla gelato or ice-cream – see recipe
4 tablespoons chocolate shavings
3 tablespoons chopped roasted and peeled hazelnuts –  caramelised 
Icing sugar for dusting 
6 pieces chocolate shards
 
 
Method
Preheat the conveyer pizza oven to 260 degrees Celsius.  

  1.  Using a rolling pin, roll out the pizza dough to a 12 inch round on a lightly dusted work bench with either semolina. Lift the dough base onto a oiled 30cm (12inch) pizza tray and prick the base all over with a fork or docker to stop the air bubble forming when cooking. Allow the dough to prove for 15mins so it is 5mm thick before adding ingredients. 
  2.  Evenly spread 4 tablespoons of hazelnut chocolate spread on the pizza base. Mix honey, milk, and ricotta in a small bowl, and then evenly spread on the pizza. Arrange the sliced banana evenly around the pizza. Place the pizza on the preheated conveyer belt and cook for 5-6 minutes, or until crisp and golden. 
  3. Remove the pizza from the pizza tray.  Cut into 6 even wedges. Sprinkle with chopped hazelnuts, chocolate shavings, and dust with icing sugar. Place one small scoop of vanilla ice-cream on each wedge and garnish each ice-cream scoop with a chocolate shard and serve.
