Cinnamon Streusel Dessert Pizza

I love pizza and I love dessert!  That’s why I loved this recipe!
 





Cinnamon Streusel Dessert Pizza

Homemade or store bought pizza dough
1 TBSP butter, melted
Cinnamon (to sprinkle)

PIZZA DOUGH
1 cup and 2 Tbsp hot water
2 1/2 tsp yeast
1 tsp sugar
3 cups flour
2 tsp salt

Mix water, yeast and sugar together in bowl and let sit for 5 minutes or until nice and foamy.  Slowly add in flour 1 cup at time and salt in between.  Knead with mixer or with hands for a few minutes.   Let rest for 20 minutes or until it doubles in size.  Form to the size of pizza you are wanting.
(Makes 1 large pizza with a thicker crust)


STREUSEL
1/2 cup plus 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 TBSP vegetable shortening
2 TBSP oil
 

ICING
1 cup powdered sugar
1 TBSP milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla
 
Preheat oven to 460° F. Mix together streusel ingredients with a fork then side aside.
 
To make pizza, pat dough into a 12 inch pizza pan that has been sprayed with oil.  Perforate pizza dough with a fork (this keeps bubbles from forming), then brush with 1 TBSP melted butter. Sprinkle cinnamon all around buttered crust. Top pizza crust with streusel mix, crumbling in your hands to make nice pea sized chunks.
 
Bake at 460° F for 8 to 9 minutes depending on the thickness of the pizza.  Mix icing ingredients until it is of a drizzle consistency. If it is too thick, then thin with a small amount of milk until you have reached your desired thinness.
 
When finished baking, top with icing in a circular pinwheel pattern. Cut up into triangles and enjoy.

MY NOTES
I love my pizza stone, so that’s how I ended up cooking mine my pizza. The streusel mix makes alot so if your making one pizza I would half it, I wasted alot!  As for the icing 1 Tbsp milk was not enough to mix together so I added more, was not a fan of the flavor so I added 1 Tbsp of cream cheese and it  tasted much better!  Try not to over cook!
