Homemade Cinnamon Streusel Dessert Pizza

On Valentine’s Day, I made a double batch of pizza dough so that I could make a martini (triple olive) pizza for us, and heart-shaped pizzas for the 3 little cherubs.

Bee’s is a “winking” heart, because that’s what she always draws for me on notes and cards.

DJ is my FUNNY Valentine.

I also wanted to make something special for my husband, who loves Pizza Hut’s cinnamon streusel dessert pizza. I figured it couldn’t be that difficult to recreate something like that at home, and I was right!

My husband said it was even better than Pizza Hut, and it couldn’t be easier to make.

12-14 ounces pizza dough. (I make mine in the bread machine. You can find the recipe here).
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
6 tablespoons cold butter, cut into small cubes

For glaze
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons milk

Pat dough out onto greased pizza pan (don’t make it too thin). Combine flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Cut in cold butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs (you can use a pastry blender or a fork, but I prefer to just use my hands). Sprinkle streusel evenly over dough. Bake in preheated 350-degree oven for 20-25 minutes, until crust is golden brown. Let cool slightly.

Stir together powdered sugar and milk until smooth. Drizzle over warm pizza. Cut into wedges and serve warm.

This pizza was great for our afternoon coffee break, and the leftovers were delicious for breakfast the next day.

  7. That sounds like a yummy dessert pizza. For the fruit variety, do you suppose you could spread fruit filling on before the streusal?

  8. […] Dough I sometimes have a small amount of leftover pizza dough. I roll it thin, spray a skillet with cooking spray, and fry it. This makes a delicious flatbread, which I top with scrambled eggs and cheese for breakfast. I also make small dessert pizzas. […]
