“Italians love their Nutella. It’s a treat given to them in their childhood and many continue this love affair when they become adults. Nutella is now famous throughout the world, but its origins begin with Italian pastry maker, Pietro Ferrero, who created a chocolate bar cut with high-quality Piemontese hazelnut paste. That was in 1946 when chocolate was in short supply post-war. Now, it’s enjoyed by millions of people all over the world. This is Pizzaperta’s version of a Nutella pizza.”
