Cinnastix Inspired Dessert

Easy Cinnamon Pizza Dessert

This is a truly easy dessert recipe.  I tend to have all these ingredients in my home on a regular basis and this sweet treat is done in as little as 15 minutes.  You can have the kiddos help by flattening out the dough and mixing, too!

You'll Need:
Pizza Dough
3 teaspoons melted butter
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/4 cup powdered sugar
Splash of milk

First, open up your pizza dough.  Am I the only one who can't seem to peel the labels off these things right?  I peel, waiting for that pop to indicate it's opened and it doesn't come.  Then I have to like put pressure on the tube while scrunching my face up in anxious anticipation for that loud pop sound...please tell me I'm not crazy.  Anyways, open up you pizza dough and place it on your lightly greases pizza pan/cookie sheet (I forgot to grease the pan just a tiny bit and later it was a bit difficult to remove said dessert...). 

Brush the melted butter over the dough and pop in the preheated oven (preheat to whatever the dough package indicates) for 4 minutes. While the dough is pre-cooking take your sugar and cinnamon and mix in a small bowl.  The sugar and cinnamon mixture is totally up to your preference- the measurements above are totally a suggestion. 

Next, pull the dough out and sprinkle (or drench, again, it's up to you) the dough/butter with the cinn/sugar mixture.  We go all the way to the ends but you can leave a crust if you like.  Put this back into the oven for 10 minutes or until golden brown.  You want your cinnamon and sugar mixture to have created a bit of a delicious melted type crust. 

While the dessert pizza is cooking you can make your frosting or glaze.  Take the powdered sugar and mix with a splash of milk.  You want the consistency of thin icing.  If you put too much milk in, no worries, just add more powdered sugar.  If you've never made this kind of icing just be aware, a little milk goes a LONG way.  When your dessert pizza is perfect, take it out and immediately drizzle the icing over.  Try to wait a minute or two, to avoid burning your mouth, then DIG IN!

Warning:  You will eat more than you originally planned.
