Cinnamon Crumb Dessert Pizza

Cinnamon Crumb Dessert Pizza

It would be easier to call it "cinnamon pizza", a delicious sweet pizza recipe, inspired by an American website. The author mentions it's quite common in American pizza restaurants. I haven't seen it in Romania and I was excited at the idea of trying it. It's brilliant, one evening I made a salty pizza and this sweet pizza. The sweet one was very successful, kids and dad simply devoured it :) 

It's quick, especially if you have the dough already made and I can assure you it will be much appreciated. It's flavourful - the scent of butter and cinnamon, it's crispy, yet fluffy, I'd say it's perfect!

Step 1

Prepare the pizza crust, you'll find directions in the Classic Pizza Dough recipe.

You will also find there the ingredients for the crust, in this recipe I only included the ingredients for the cinnamon crumble. The ingredients are for 1-2 pizzas. 

So, roll out dough and transfer to a baking pan, greased with some oil, let rest for 10 minutes.

In a small bowl, mix the powdered sugar with 1-2 tbsp milk and vanilla. 

You should have a sugar paste, dense, but runny at the same time.

When you remove the pizza from the oven, cut the corner of the plastic bag and drizzle with glaze all over the pizza.

We do this right away, when pizza is hot.
