It is no secret to anybody who knows me how much I love Godfather's Pizza's dessert pizza. When I was pregnant with my daughter, I remember begging my husband to drive an hour and a half south of our house to pick one up for me in 1 of the few remaining Godfather's Pizza's left in the state of Washington. When all of their restaurants within an hour of my house went out of business, I fell into the depths of despair and was quite certain that I would never taste it again.
Today, I solved my problem. I made it. It was identical to Godfather's Pizza. It was easy. It took 10 minutes to prepare. Oh, and it was BOMB.
Pizza dough (You can make your own, I just bought some refrigerated dough at the grocery store)
1 TBSP butter, melted
1/2 cup plus 1/3 cups all purpose flour
1/3 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 TBSP vegetable shortening
2 TBSP olive oil *
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!
* I had a reader comment that she could taste the olive flavor in the olive oil. If you have a sensitive palate to this, you may want to try using vegetable or canola oil. I personally prefer olive oil, but use the 100% olive oil, as it has a very subtle olive flavor.
