Godfather's Dessert Pizza {Cinnamon Streusel}

Pizza dough (You can make your own or buy some at the store)

1 TBSP butter, melted mixed with Cinnamon

3/4 cups all purpose flour
1/3 cup white sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar firmly packed
6 TBSP (1/3 cup) butter

1 cup powdered sugar
1 TBSP milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Mix together streusel ingredients with a fork, or your clean hands, then side aside.

To make pizza, pat dough into a 12 inch pizza pan that has been sprayed with oil. Perforate pizza dough with a fork (this keeps bubbles from forming), then brush with 1 TBSP melted butter. Sprinkle cinnamon all around buttered crust. Top pizza crust with streusel mix.

Bake at 460 F for 8 to 9 minutes depending on the thickness of the pizza. Mix icing ingredients until it is of a drizzle consistency. If it is too thick, then thin with a small amount of milk until you have reached your desired thinness.

When finished baking, top with icing in a circular pinwheel pattern. Cut up and enjoy!
