Nutella Pull Apart Pie has mouthwatering morsels of flaky pastry with Nutella in between, all arranged in a gorgeous blossom pattern that’s perfect for a party! Pull apart the bite-size pieces that will melt in your mouth. Make it with just 2 ingredients in about 30 minutes.
After our Cherry Pie Pull Apart and Pumpkin Pie Pull Apart recipes went viral on Pinterest, several readers requested a version with chocolate… This one is so attractive, and you can make it with either Nutella or chocolate 🙂
Each piece is about 50 calories, so it’s easy on the waistline. We’ve served it as part of a holiday buffet as well as game day parties, and everyone really digs in!
How to Make Nutella Pull Apart Pie
There are only two ingredients required to make it, plus one optional:
- Pie Crust: I used two packages of refrigerated Pillsbury pie dough, but you can also make your own pie crust if you prefer.
- Nutella: Any chocolate hazelnut spread will work, or you can use melted chocolate chips
- Egg Wash (Optional): For an attractive look, you can brush the dough lightly with beaten egg before baking
There are 4 steps for making this Nutella pie pull apart:
- Roll out the pie dough to about 1/8-inch / 3 cm thickness
- Cut into 2-inch circles
- Fill each circle with a 1/2 teaspoon of Nutella
- Pinch the end together with your fingers
- Place in a circular baking pan or pie plate
Once the pan is packed full, then you’re ready to bake. Always follow the product directions, but it takes about 12-15 minutes at 400°F for a Pillsbury pie crust, or follow the instructions of the product you’re using.

Easy Nutella Pull Apart Pie
- 2 packages refrigerated pie dough
- 1/2 cup Nutella
- 1 egg, beaten, optional
- Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a round 8-9 inch cake pan with parchment paper.
- On a work surface, roll out the pie dough.
- Using a 2-inch round cookie cutter (or similarly sized water glass), cut as many circles as possible from the dough. Repeat for the second pie dough.
- Pick up one circle and spread about a half teaspoon onto it with a knife. Fold into a semi-circle, pinch the ends together and place in the pan facing up.
- Repeat for remaining circles, arranging the pieces into a circular pattern in the pan.
- Brush with optional beaten egg, and then bake for 12-15 minutes until the edges turn golden.
- Serve in the pan, or use a spatula to get beneath the parchment and lift the pie up onto a serving plate.

I did not make this, but my niece did … These are so yummy!
Hey Lisa, So cool – thanks for your comment and hope you enjoyed! 🙂
I plan to make this for my coworkers for our pot o soup meal coming up this month. Chocolate is always a hit with teachers. I’ll let you know what they say.
Hi Bri, Great and will look forward to hearing how it turns out! 🙂
Hi, I was just wondering what type of pastry pie dough is?
Is it flakey, rough puff or short crust? Thx
Hi Sarah, Thanks for your question – it’s a short crust. Enjoy! 🙂
Hello :Could you tell me the ingredients of the Nutella pie in detail? Thanks a lot . Rebecca
Hi Rebecca, Thanks for your comment. There are just 2 ingredients: Nutella (or chocolate hazelnut spread), and store-bought refrigerated pie crust (such as Pillsbury). If you don’t have pie crust available in your area, then you will need to make your own using this recipe https://tipbuzz.com/pie-crust/ . Let me know if that helps! 🙂
I would loved to try, how long can the pies be stored in a air-tight container?
Hi Catherine, Thanks for your review! They’ll last several days in an airtight container 🙂
Can you use puff pastry sheets instead of pie dough?
Hi Kelly, Great question – the puff pastry won’t work unfortunately as the pieces will puff into each other negating the pull apart. Hope that helps! 🙂
I believe that is 3mm NOT cm ( which would be about 1 1/2 inches.) But this looks great.
Hi Otter, Thanks for your question. 3mm thickness would be right, but the pastry circle diameter should be 3 cm, or 1 1/2 inches.
I guess that the picture of the finished dessert isn’t from the recipe, right because there are about 60 morsels in that pan–got confused about that–that is just an example?
Thanks for a great idea–will make it soon.
Hi Barbara, Thanks and glad someone is paying attention. The photo is accurate, but note the recipe calls for *two* pie doughs, so it is pastry-intensive 🙂
Aid like to try it with a savory filling maybe a spinach dip
Hi Nancy, I haven’t tried it, but that’s such a cool idea! Let me know how it turns out if you make it 🙂
Could you use puff pastry?
Hi Nan, Avoid puff pastry as the pull apart won’t work. Enjoy! 🙂
Failed horribly. I have no idea how you make each piece so easily. Mine turned out to be tacos and then it does not even look anything close to your photos. I wish I could post my photo here. Lol.
I’ve also tried it with specaloos. That was a fail. Too soft.
The Nutella held to the heat well, but the pie crust, I have no idea how you folded it so nicely to make it fan out.
Hi Christina, Sorry to hear that – did you watch the video to see how to fold?
I made it and it was a huge hit!! Super easy with wow factor!
Hi Angela, Thanks for your review and so happy to hear that. Enjoy! 🙂
Can you use this with sugar cookie dough?
Hi Jennifer, That’s a great idea although I haven’t tried it for this recipe. Let me know how it goes if you do!
How did you transfer it to a serving dish?
Hi Beth, You can put a plate over top and invert. Then put another plate on the bottom and flip again. Hope that helps 🙂
Does it need 2 pie dough rolls to make the whole pie pull a part shown in the video or do you need more?
Hi Mia, Two pie doughs are enough. Depending on the size, you might need to make a ball out of the leftover dough and roll it out to cut the last few circles. Enjoy!
Looks great but how do you get it out of the pan?
Thanks Beth, with the parchment underneath the pastry, you can sort of pull and slide it out onto a plate.
Alternatively, you can put a plate on top and invert. Then remove the pan and put another plate on the bottom and invert back. Hope that helps 🙂
Would this work with apricot filling ? Like a Kolacky tart ?
Hi Lilly, I haven’t tried it, but would think that would work fine and be delicious!! 🙂
What could you use as an alternative to Nutella? I’ve seen the cherry pie, and pumpkin pie recipes, but I was wondering if there was anothere chocolate alternative or peanut butter?
Hi Ashley, Sure you can substitute melted chocolate chips instead of Nutella and it’ll be delicious 🙂 Haven’t tried peanut butter, so if you do that please report back!
Make like a pie crust cinnamon roll with melted chocolate and frost with peanut buttercream frosting. Would be delicious
La maassa de pastis, es pata de full ??
Can you freez this??
Haven’t tried but it should be fine. Thanks for asking!
freeze before you bake it…
If we freeze before baking, should we defrost first?
Hi Kathy, Yes definitely should defrost for at least 30 minutes… 🙂
