This Cinnamon Crumb Dessert Pizza is inspired by the dessert pizza served at pizza restaurants. But it’s even better because you make it yourself!
Recipe for homemade Cinnamon Crumb Dessert Pizza

My kids are always begging us to get dessert pizza when we order delivery. But after forking out all the cash for pizza, I don’t want to spend more on dessert. Especially when I know I can make it for a fraction of the cost! I like to make my own crust, but even if you buy pizza dough, you will still save a lotta dough. Haha, get it? Plus with purchased dough the prep time is like five minutes.

Cinnamon Streusel Dessert PizzaWhen I made this for my family, I doubled the recipe. Because let’s face it. When you have a soft and chewy crust topped with a heavy dose of cinnamon sugar crumbs, then topped with glaze, one slice isn’t enough. Especially if you are a teenage boy. Which we have plenty of at my house.
This Cinnamon Crumb Pizza is made from scratch, and perfect for fall baking!

And even with the double recipe, there were no leftovers. Crumbs were happily licked from fingers, and plates were left spotless. In other words,  this cinnamon pizza was a huge hit. If you don’t have teenage boys, stick with one batch. Unless you have a really stretchy pair of yoga pants. 🙂

Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes



  • 1 tsp instant yeast
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 Tbsp hot water
  • 1/3 cup milk, warmed
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp oil
  • 1 1/4– 1 1/2 cups flour

Cinnamon Crumb Topping

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened


  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 Tbsp milk (more or less)


  1. For dough: Combine yeast, sugar, hot water, and warm milk in a mixing bowl. Stir till yeast dissolves. Add salt and oil. Stir in one cup of the flour and mix well.
  2. Add enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead a few times on a floured counter. Return to the bowl, cover, and let rest 15 minutes.
  3. Roll or press out to a 12" circle on a lightly greased cookie sheet or pizza pan.
  4. For crumb mixture: Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and mix together till crumbly. I just use my hands. Sprinkle crumbs evenly over the crust.
  5. Bake at 375° for 15-20 minutes or till crust is light brown.
  6. Whisk together the icing ingredients and drizzle over the pizza. I like to put mine in a small ziplock bag and snip the corner to drizzle.

    Is the ratio of flour to sugar off in your ingredient list (1 cup flour, 1/3 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup sugar)? I tried this, and the topping didn’t turn out at all. Too much flour, I think.

    • The topping is more dry than most streusel toppings. It is actually pretty crumbly. But if you prefer, you can definitely add more butter!
