Cinnamon Streusel Dessert Pizza
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!
Mix up the dough according to package directions (or feel free to use fresh, store-bough dough).
Roll out dough onto a lightly floured surface.
Pierce dough with a fork, then lightly brush with melted butter.
Spread around cinnamon streusel mixture, then bake.

This super simple dessert pizza is a perfect treat for pizza night, or anytime!
Fresh Pizza Dough
(I used Fleischmann's Pizza Crust Yeast, and the recipe on the package)
3 Tablespoons butter (melted)
1 Tablespoon cinnamon
1/3 cup brown sugar
3 Tablespoons flour
1 cup powdered sugar
1 Tablespoon milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
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! =)
