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

Yield: 1- 12" pizza

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.

  29. I have made this 4 times now and each time it comes out great! I make it gluten-free by using Pamela’s pizza crust mix. So delicious! Thanks for the great recipe!

  30. I made this today and I’m sure it’s delicious but are you sure you intend the streusel mixture to be made with melted butter? For me it never turned into streusel crumbs that way and instead turned into just a glaze consistency. Usually streusel is made by mixing small chunks of cold butter.

    • Hi Heather,
      So glad you gave it a try. Yes, the melted butter is correct, although you could do it with colder butter as well, as you suggested. I prefer to use melted butter simply because the mixture will come together much quicker and with less mess. The mixture should still be crumbly. If it was a more of a thick paste consistency, then you can let it cool just a few minutes (the entire mixture) and then just use a fork to fluff it up a bit and create the texture desired.
      Happy baking!

  31. I love the pizza crust yeast. No store in my town carries it anymore so I have to stock up when we go out of town.

    I was making crust for our pizza tonight and accidentally put too much water in it so I had to add more flour and wound up with way too much crust. I decided I wanted to try a dessert pizza and found this recipe. Love this recipe and so did my family. We will definitely be making it again.
