Mickey's Super Simple Nutella Pizza

Recipe Inspired By J.Baldwin's

Cook Time: 1o-15
Serves: 4-6 servings 
    Mascarpone 4 oz
    Nutella 2oz
    Sea salt To taste
    Pizza Dough 5-8 oz dough
    Powdered sugar (optional)

For the Dough:
    1 3/4 cup warm water
    1 (1/4-ounce) package active dry yeast (recommended: RapidRise)
    2 teaspoons salt
    4 1/2 to 5 cups bread flour
    3 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for bowl
    1 tablespoon spoon of honey

Measure out 1 3/4 cups warm water. Sprinkle the yeast on top of the water and allow it to activate, about 10 minutes. 
Put the salt and 2 cups of the flour into a food processor. Pulse 5 times to blend. Pour in the yeast, honey and water, and pulse 5 times. Add the olive oil. Add the remaining flour 1 cup at a time, pulsing and scraping the sides of the bowl until well blended. As soon as the mixture is combined, dump it out onto a well-floured board and knead for 15 turns, until the dough is smooth and elastic. 
Place the dough in a greased bowl and turn to coat all sides. Cover with plastic wrap.  Allow the dough to rise in a warm place for about 45 minutes, until doubled in size, then punch it down. 
Divide it in half; each half will make 1 (12-inch) pizza.
