- Unbleached all-purpose flour, for dusting
- 1 pound room-temperature Quick Basic Pizza Dough
- 1 egg, beaten, for egg wash
- 1/2 cup Nutella
- 32 banana slices
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Dust surface lightly with flour. Divide dough into 8 balls; roll into 4-inch rounds. Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet. Let stand, draped with plastic, in a warm place until they double in size, about 30 minutes.
Lightly brush with egg. Bake until golden, about 8 minutes. Let cool slightly. Use a knife to slice pita-like pockets; stuff each with 1 tablespoon Nutella and 4 slices banana. Serve immediately.
