Does this sound good? Shortbread, Nutella & raspberries

I need one more easy but pretty dessert for a party next week - this dessert pizza sounds good to me but just want another opinion since I've never made it before - shortbread base, top with Nutella, then raspberries...
Sound good to you? Or have any other ideas?

  1. I'm not a big fan of Nutella. I find it to be overpowering for most recipes and, while I do like hazel nuts, I find the flavor unpleasant after more than one or two bites of whatever it's applied to. But the raspberries and shortbread are a good start. Perhaps putting a lemon curd on the shortbread and topping with raspberries?

      Chocolate and hazelnuts, yes. Chocolate and raspberries, yes. Chocolate and hazelnuts and raspberries, no. At least not in that configuration. Hazelnut shortbread with raspberries and chocolate, perhaps.

    2. Shortbread, real whipped cream and berries is a perfect dessert. Some people like a bit of shaved chocolate over the top.

      1. Raspberries and chocolate go very well together. I don't see why your dessert pizza wouldn't do great.

        If you don't mind cheating a little, you could use a commercial cookie for the base. I think there are some shortcake cookies out there or maybe those cookies called "Sandies", I think.

        If you don't want to use Nutella, you could always go with a ganache.

        1. Anything with nutella sounds good to me.

          1. I'm not a fan of Nutella (I don't like chocolate,) but think this would be great with Speculoos.
