UPPER EAST SIDE — Here's another reason to be sweet on this neighborhood pizzeria.

Little Luzzo's, located at 119 E. 96th St., sells a $1 "Nutella snack."

The dessert is made up of a pizza dough-based roll, which is halved and filled with Nutella — a creamy chocolate and hazelnut spread.

These fluffy puffs, made fresh daily, come dusted with powdered sugar.

Though the snacks have been available for approximately one year, the restaurant now sells some 30 daily, an employee told a DNAinfo.com reporter.

They fly off the shelves particularly in the afternoon, he explained, "When there are kids coming in after school."

In addition to this dish, favorite savory selections at the pizzeria include a Sicilian slice with potato and gorgonzola as well as picks with broccoli rabe and truffle pate.

Little Luzzo's received critical acclaim from Serious Eats in 2010 for its "Campana slice" — which featured "heavy cream sauce, mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, and shaved Parmesan cheese."
