Cinnamon Streusel Dessert Pizza

Cinnamon Streusel Dessert Pizza - So easy and everyone loves it!!

My family loves “make your own pizza” night, and this Cinnamon Streusel Dessert Pizza is a perfect treat to round out the meal!

When a recipe starts with lots of cinnamon and sugar… you know it’s going to be good!  Add in butter, fresh pizza crust and a simple glaze and you’ll have an easy treat that everyone loves!

We make pizza at home pretty often, but one thing I always struggle with is rolling out the dough into a reasonably round shape!  I usually give up after fighting the dough, and settle on some random “blob” shape!  Here’s a photo I shared on Instagram of one of my recent pizzas.

Fleischmann’s brand recently introduced me to a new product, their Pizza Crust Yeast.  This yeast is designed just for pizza crust, and is much easier to roll out than traditional pizza dough.  I figured it was worth a try!  I mixed up the dough according to the package directions.  Once the dough is mixed, it’s ready to roll (there is no rise time).  I started rolling, and what do you know… it didn’t spring back into a blob, it rolled out beautifully!

Now I can easily make this delicious Cinnamon Streusel Dessert Pizza anytime I want!

Cinnamon Streusel Dessert Pizza

This super simple dessert pizza is a perfect treat for pizza night, or anytime!

Yield: 1- 12" pizza

Ingredients:

Fresh Pizza Dough
(I used Fleischmann's Pizza Crust Yeast, and the recipe on the package)

Crumble
3 Tablespoons butter (melted)
1 Tablespoon cinnamon
1/3 cup brown sugar
3 Tablespoons flour

Glaze
1 cup powdered sugar
1 Tablespoon milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

Prepare pizza dough as directed on package, or use fresh store-bought dough.

Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface, then transfer to a baking stone, or baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Use a fork to pierce some holes all over the pizza (leaving about 1 inch untouched around the outside edge)

Use a pastry brush to lightly brush some of the melted butter all over the pizza dough.

Combined remaining melted butter with cinnamon, sugar and flour and mix with a fork until all the ingredients are moistened, and mixture is crumbly.

Spread crumb mixture evenly around the pizza, leaving an edge of crust.

Bake pizza in a preheated 425*F oven for 12-15 minutes, or according to pizza dough instructions.

Once baked, combine glaze ingredients and drizzle glaze over pizza.

Serve while still a bit warm.

My girls thought it was quite funny that the cinnamon streusel mixture looks like ”taco meat”… but the delicious sweet aroma of this pizza baking gives it away!  =)

    Lots of homemade pizza nights? Where do I sign up?? I’m going through a huge pizza obsession phase, and having two — one savory for dinner, one sweet for dessert — sounds fabulous! Already pinned!

    I would have never thought to use actual pizza crust for a dessert pizza (the ones I always see are cookie crusts). Thanks for the idea!

    This looks so amazing! I love that this is just a regular pizza crust. I’m not a fan of the sugar cookie versions, but this I could totally love.

    OOH I’m partial to that Spinach & Artichoke Flatbread variety of the Culinary Circle Pizza. Never heard of the brand before, so I especially appreciate your review of this company’s products! The pizza you tried with the caramelized onions sounds amazing as well.
