A cinnamon-sugar streusel topping layered over an easy pizza dough with a drizzle of cream cheese frosting. The extra special crust is made with cinnamon sugar crust bites which makes this even more delicious and fun to eat.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a 9" cast iron pan or pie plate lightly with cooking spray. Set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer with the dough hook, mix together warm water, sugar, and yeast. Let mixture sit for 5 minutes.
Add flour and salt to the mixture. Using the dough setting on your mixer, turn on and mix until smooth. Leave in the bowl and allow to rise for 10 minutes.
Roll the dough into a 9-inch circle and place in prepared pan.
For the Cinnamon Sugar Crust Bites:
Using the leftover dough, roll into bite-sized balls around 1/2 tablespoon in size. Dip in melted cinnamon spread butter and roll into a bowl of cinnamon sugar. Attach to the outer rim of the pizza. Meanwhile, make the crumble allowing the dough to rest another 10 minutes.
Make the Cinnamon Spread:
In a small bowl combine melted butter, brown sugar and cinnamon. Spread thinly on top of the pizza crust.
Make the Streusel:
In a medium bowl, combine all the ingredients using a fork or your fingers until pea-sized crumbs form. Spread an even layer over the cinnamon spread.
Bake in the preheated oven for about 15 - 20 minutes or until crust and topping are golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool in the pan slightly.
Make the Cream Cheese Glaze:
While the pizza is baking, in a stand mixer or using a hand mixer, beat together butter and cream cheese. Add powdered sugar and vanilla until combined. Place in a zip-top bag with a tiny hole cut in the corner and drizzle over dessert pizza. Serve while still warm.
