Baker's Review Wednesday 25: Cinnamon Streusel Dessert Pizza

This week I made some cinnamon streusel dessert pizza.  I actually made 2 versions; one following the recipes directions, and one that I changed the recipe to make it better.  I will share my recipe with you and the link to the original recipe.

Pizza dough (I used the recipe from here.)
2 tbsp butter, melted


3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
7 tbsp butter, melted


1 cup powdered sugar
1 tbsp milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla


Make the pizza dough and set aside to let raise.

Mix together the streusel ingredients, then set aside.

To make pizza, pat dough into a greased jelly roll pan or 12 inch pizza pan.  Perforate pizza dough with a fork (this keeps bubbles from forming), then brush with 2 tbsp melted butter.  Sprinkle cinnamon all around buttered crust.  Top pizza crust with streusel mix, and then another light sprinkling of cinnamon.

Bake at 440 degrees for 13-15 minutes, until crust is done to desired amount.  Mix icing ingredients until it is of 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.  Cut and enjoy!!

Here is the link to the original recipe.

We didn't like the original recipe nearly as much because the streusel was very fally-aparty and it had a weird taste because of the shortening. I think this is really good:)  It's best fresh though - if you're having it like a day later it's good to warm it up for like 10 seconds in the microwave.

Link up your recipe and/or review below.  The button code is on the sidebar of the blog.

Ohhh, yum! It looks like the streusel pizza from Godfathers pizza. I'm going to try this with GF flour:)

Karen - the original recipe was called Godfather's cinnamon streusel dessert pizza:) I just didn't call it that since I changed the recipe.
