Oh my!! I LOVE dessert pizza, and had forgotten all about it! I can't wait to try this....apple cinnamon was my favourite at Pizza Hut's buffet! So, glad I found your blog!

Shannon said...

I'm a dessert pizza junkie too. I love having this recipe in my back pocket now. :)

Oh my goodness, this is amazing! I didn't think I'd be able to find a recipe for this! The same thing has happened in Wisconsin too. The closest one to my home is over 2 hours away, but I just crave the taste of this delicious pizza! Thank you so much!

Shannon said...

Yay! Glad I could help! :)

Selina said...

YUM! I used to love their dessert pizza... but all the stores around here closed when I was in high school. I will be making this soon! :D

Michelle said...

This turned out soooo well!! I added my own twist to it by spreading some pumpkin pie filling on the crust and then topping it with streusel topping ....soooo yummy. Thanks for sharing!!

Shannon @ RumblyTumbly.com said...

The pumpkin version sounds great, I will have to try that sometime!

Cyndi said...

Cherry pie filling (and apple filling) are AWESOME as well!!

Jackie said...

For some reason this didn't turn out tasty for me at all. The olive oil stood out too much, yuck.

Shannon said...

Jackie: Thanks for your comment. I appreciate it and I will add a note to the recipe. Olive oil does have a subtle taste. I use plain 100% olive oil when I use it in a baked item, not extra virgin, which tends to have a more "olivey" flavor. I'm sorry you didn't like it. I've made this dozens of times and have never had anybody comment on that standing out, it may be the brand/type you used, or if you try it again, you could try a less flavorful oil, like vegetable or canola.

it doesnt say directions for the strusel? mix everything?

Shannon @ RumblyTumbly.com said...

Yes, just crumble the streusel ingredients all together with your clean hands.

Looks delicious! Reminds me of being a kid! I am going to try this tonight!

Shannon @ Rumblytumbly.com said...

I hope it turned out well for you!

Do you think I could use butter instead of vegetable shortening in the streusel?

Shannon said...

You could give it a try. Butter might result in a streusel that is a little more flat, but it should taste pretty close to the same. Let me know how it turns out!

Anonymous said...

Worked just fine with the butter, and looked exactly the way your photos looked, not flat or anything--thanks for the recipe!

Shannon said...

That is great to know, and I'm so glad! Thank you for updating me!

Local Deal Finder-Huntsville-Conroe-The Woodlands said...

I have been looking everywhere for a copycat recipe for Double Dave's Chocolate Chip Dessert Pizza--any ideas on that??

Shannon @rumblytumbly.com said...

I had to google that, because we don't have a Double Dave's here in Seattle. Having never tasted it, I can only guess on it, and it looks like pizza crust, topped with chocolate chip cookie dough (sans the chocolate chips) and then topped with chocolate chips. My best advice is to buy those ingredients and start playing around with them. Good luck!

Amanda said...

I am very excited to have this recipe. The nearest gf is 4 hours. Why? I too fell in the depths of despair to learn I may never taste my beloved bread and butter of pizzas again!

Shannon @rumblytumbly.com said...

Amanda, you will be very pleased when you see how easy this is to make and how close it comes to the real thing! :)

i have made pizza crust out of a can of biscuits and it was deliciuos i also made noodles from flour, salt, and water and boiled it for a minute or two ; it was better than boxed noodles. i also made some chips from water, salt, and flour then i fryed it n veggie oil and that was delic.

'1 TBSP butter, melted cinnamon' ?? can you elaborate on the melted cinnamon part? I'm not understanding this part. How does one melt cinnamon??

Shannon said...

I'm not sure if you're reading this from a phone or what, but no, the way I have the recipe written says "1 TBSP butter, melted" and then, on another line, the cinnamon, which is just a sprinkling. When you read on into the instructions, it tells tou to brush the melted butter over the crust and sprinkle it with cinnamon before you add the streusel onto the crust. You definitely don't melt any cinnamon. :) Hope that helps, thanks for visiting.

I doubled the icing and the pie is in the oven... You are A SAINT! I miss Godfather's so much. So glad I found this on pinterest, even almost a year after you wrote it :)

Just made this with Crescent Rolls. Just use two 8-count tubes instead of the pizza dough. Really yummy!

Mimi said...

Can someone please tell me what the 1st ingredient is for the streusel? It says 1/2 cup plus 1/3 cups all purpose flour... 1/2 cup what? I'm confused... please post and let me know. Thanks

Shannon said...

Mimi, it's flour. 1/2 cup flour plus 1/3 cup flour. It's the only way to accurately measure it. Thanks for visiting and enjoy! --Shannon

Nicole said...

Someone said this would be awesome with cherry filling as well which is what I'm looking for....how would you supposed I do that? Do the crust, then pie filling, with the stresuel on top? Thanks. I'm not a baker but its been requested in my house so....here I am! =)

Shannon said...

Nicole-- I have not personally tried the cherry pie filling version, but if I were to try it, I would do just that. Spread it with the cherry pie filling, and then top with the streusel.

Although to be honest, I'm not sure how the mixture of the streusel and the cherries would taste. Apple pie filling combined makes more sense (flavor-wise) to me, but that's just a personal palate preference.

If I were going to do a cherry dessert pizza, I'd probably top it with a cream cheese filling and cherries. Something like this recipe: http://sorumblyinmytumbly.blogspot.com/2011/05/cherry-crescent-coffee-cake.html

Let me know what you did and how it turned out!

Katie said...

HAHAHAHA. .. that cracks me up that someone thought you said to melt the cinnamon. hahahah
and that SO many questions could just be answered if you read the WHOLE instructions. . . lol. .

mayzers said...

I used to work at Godfathers Pizza and would make this all the time, you nailed it! It was my favorite. To make it cherry all you add is some cherry pie filling. I can't wait to make this again!!

Anonymous said...

im not sure that it will work for me, but this picture looks great!

Shannon said...

Yay! Thanks for visiting (and for the cherry pie tips.)

Anonymous said...

Do you think I could make this, then freeze it for a later date?

Shannon said...

Eh, maybe- I wouldn't really recommend. It only takes a few minutes to throw together, so I would personally make it fresh. Thanks for visiting!

Jenna said...

What about using a sugar cookie dough for the pizza dough? too sweet?

Shannon said...

Jenna- sounds WAY too sweet for me (and I like things sweet!) The streudel combined with the glaze is very sweet, you sort of need the buttery saltiness of the pizza dough. If you try it, let me know how you like it. Thanks for visiting!

Heidi said...

Making this tonight for the fam! Thanks so much for posting the recipe! =)

Shannon said...

Thanks for visiting, Heidi! Hope you liked it!

KristyMHH said...

I just made this delicious looking pizza, however, I followed the directions exactly and the topping is so dry it's powdery. We had to be careful not to inhale while eating it. Any idea where we went wrong?

Shannon said...

Kristy- Nope, have never had that issue. If it was like dust, I would have added a bit more shortening to make it like a streusel, but with the recipe as written, I have never had that happen.

KristyMHH said...

We loved the pizza crust as a dessert, scrumptious! I thought it was dry when I put it on the crust but, waited for the magic that didn't happen. The flavors were great and I'm not giving up on it, will try again this weekend.

Shannon said...

Glad you're going to give it another try. The streusel will bake exactly as you place it on the pizza, so if it's dry in the bowl, add some more fat! :) Hope you get a better result this time, I'd hate for you to miss out on this, it is one of my very favorite things. :) Thanks for visiting!

KristyMHH said...

Fat is where it's at! Added a T at a time until it looked right. Thanks for letting me know that it bakes as it looks, I thought the shortening might melt and save the day, that's what I get for thinking. This time it turned out yummylicious! NOW it's a keeper.

Shannon said...

I'm so glad it worked out and you were ale to enjoy it. :)

Anonymous said...

I used butter in place of the olive oil.

Shannon said...

Great idea. :) Thanks for visiting!

Kyle M said...

I am so excited about this. I'm from Nevada and they had a Godfather's there when I was a kid but it went out of business about 10 years ago. I was so sad because I LOVED their dessert pizza. I actually think about it from time to time just reminiscing about the taste. I'm pathetic, what can I say. I am making this tonight and I am so excited to try it. Thanks.

Shannon said...

I hope that you enjoyed it, Kyle! Thanks for the comment and for visiting!

cando37 said...

I too remember the good ole Godfather's dessert pizza and I've yet to try another pizza chain's who good match it. Thanks for the recipe...hey could you recreate Godfather's Taco Pizza too? It was just as awesome too, remember?

Shannon said...

Cando- Give me some time, but I promise I'll give it a try for you. :) Thanks for the comment and for visiting.

restaurant Fort Lauderdale said...

This is a great way to enjoy dessert I must say. I have long been tired of the usual fruits and some tarts I buy at the grocery store. Today, though, my eating habits will change. Thanks to your version of Godfather’s Pizza dessert. I will make this recipe tomorrow and see how enjoyable eating dessert can be for me.

Shannon said...

Hope you enjoy, thanks for visiting!

I made this tonight for dessert along with the help of my husband (who was in charge of the streusell but he used an electric mixer so it turned into a dust but flavor was still delicious) and my 3 year old ran around our kitchen for a good 5 minutes screaming "this is soooo mummy" thanks from all of us also in Washington it is one of our favorites now :)

Who has a great piazza dough crust recipe I can make from scratch? Do I pre-bake a homemade crust first or not?

Shannon said...

Here is my recipe for homemade pizza dough from scratch. You do not pre-bake any kind of crust when making this dessert pizza. :) Enjoy!

I remember this pizza when I was a kid. I used to go to the GF's on Broadway with my mom and i'd just pig out and play the video games there. I will definitely try this out. this is a piece off my childhood right her! thanks so much for having the same love we have fo this pizza.

Shannon said...

From one dessert pizza junkie to another- I hope you love it! Thanks for the comment!

Bayle Renee said...

Do you have to use pizza dough? Can you use cookie dough or something, so it's even more sweet?

Shannon said...

Bayle- I do not think cookie dough would be good. I think it would be way too sweet. If you try it, let me know how it turns out! Thanks for the comment and for visiting!

Worked amazingly! Everyone in my house loved it. Instead of veg shortening i used 2 tablespoons of butter and left out the added 1/3 cup of flour for the struesel. It turned out sooo yummy!

Shannon said...

So glad you liked it, Anonymous! Thanks for the comment!

J Richardson said...

I worked at Godfathers from the time I was 16 until about 24 ( as a second job then) but this really does taste a lot like it! We used the same concept buttered pizza dough and topped w strudel topping that we mixed cinnamon in from TPC. We also just used apple or cherry pie filling for fruit ones but did not use frosting on these we did a dusting of powdered sugar on fruit ones. I loved the way this turned out it was very good and my kiddos loved it! :) thank you

Shannon said...

J Richardson- So glad to hear from a former Goddfather's Employee that this tastes authentic! :) Thanks for the comment and for visiting!

Moriah said...

Great flavor, but this was way too sweet for me! I alternated bites of this with my dinner pizza and that worked well :)
Okay, so I only realized after I started mixing what you meant by vegetable shortening. Crisco just isn't something I keep around. I used canola oil instead. And also used canola in place of the olive oil, since I already had it out and open. So that could be part of my problem. Maybe that made it kind of thin? I ended up with a pretty thick layer of chunky sand atop the pizza. I think I would've halved everything for the crumbly topping. So the addition of the frosting was just too much! Maybe I'd halve that as well?
I don't have a pizza pan, so used a 9x13 cookie sheet--I multiplied it out, and the pizza has just about the same area as for a 12" circle.
I was SO in the mood for chocolate, but your recipe looked fantastic. I put chocolate chips in the same layer as the cinnamon for a third of the pizza. The chocolate and cinnamon were great together, but I know that added even more sugar.
This is definitely something I'd try again! But maybe add more cinnamon to balance it out, and use 1/2 to 3/4 of the topping (and make it correctly with Crisco). Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Moriah said...

Just wanted to add... I definitely still ate this for breakfast ;-)

Shannon said...

Moriah, glad you enjoyed it and found a way to tweak it to your liking. Thanks for visiting!

I just googled "cinnamon pizza" and stumbled on your recipe - and made this immediately! My husband LOVES all the different dessert pizzas, but the cinnamon streusel one is one of his favorites, so I decided to make your recipe since it was so simple! Thank you so much for posting this - it turned out GREAT! I used a Great Value dry pizza packet - baked the dough first for 5 minutes with it brushed with cinnamon sugar butter (you can find it with the butters in the grocery store) and then I added a lot of cinnamon to the streusel topping. I also added 2 tbsp of butter (softened) instead of the 2 tbsp of olive oil, since I'm used to streusel toppings having some cut up softened butter in it to help make it more crumbly! It was amazing! I also did only canola oil, no olive oil, so if anyone has issues with an olive oil taste - just do all canola - or swap one for 2 tbsp cut up butter in the mix, you should be fine! The streusel made a TON - so I ended up just saving all the extra and putting it in the fridge so I can make another!!! Thank you so much for this recipe!!!

Shannon said...

So glad you enjoyed it, Katrina! Thanks for the comment and tips, and for visiting. :)
