Bow down to the Nutella Pizza

Boldly going where no pizza joint has gone before, Pellicola Pizzeria -- a Downtown slice-house from a lauded NY pizza dude and the guys behind Seven Grand -- just dropped the pinnacle of sweetness: Nutella Pizza, a wondrous ode to the hazelnut-chocolate spread that got you through that time Joey and Dawson broke up. And also that time Joey and Pacey broke up. And also that time... Dawson and Pacey broke up?

This isn't just a matter of making a regular pie and tossing Nutella on it. Unlike every other pizza made in the history of mankind where you try to get the air to the edge of your dough, the challenge here is "keeping the air inside"...

... so that when it goes in the oven...

... it becomes THIS.

Why's it gotta puff? 'Cause it's STUFFED WITH NUTELLA and you basically have to make it like a giant sandwich. A giant, NUTELLA PIZZA SANDWICH!

Once the bad boy's cut open, he hits it with an enormous amount of Nutella...

... spreads it...

... and tops it with a crunchy layer of almonds. Nuts, right?

From there, he takes the other slice of dough and sandwiches both together...

... sprinkles it with a crazy amount of powdered sugar, 'cause it ain't sweet enough yet...

... and of course, another spiral of Nutella. Just in case.

In the words of Donatello when you stole the full-life pie in Turtles in Time (even though your little brother had less health and totally needed it), "Pizza time!"

Oh, and did we mention they're open 'til 3a?
