Dessert Pizzas

Another replica recipe from my days at Godfather's Pizza. The M and M dessert was my FAVORITE!!!!
This recipe yields 3 dessert pizzas

Dough:(from chickens in the road)

1 1/2 cups warm water
1 teaspoon yeast
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
1/3 cup olive oil

3 1/2 to 4 cups flour

(In kitchenaid) Combine water, yeast, sugar and olive oil. Allow to sit for 5 minutes until it is foamy.
Add in salt and mix in 1/2 the flour. Switch to the dough hook, continue adding flour until the dough holds together, knead until it is smooth and elastic.
Place it in a greased bowl and allow to rise to doubled in a warm location(about 45 minutes)

Divide in thirds(I actually do a little more than a third on one then divide the other part evenly, the apple dessert needs a little more crust to it) and roll out on greased pizza pans.

Pre-Bake the Crusts for 8 minutes in a 375 degree oven.

1-1/3 cup bread flour
2/3 cup white sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup butter flavor shortening(softened butter works fine too)
1/4 cup vegetable oil

Mix together streusel ingredients until it is sticking in clumps and all ingredients are incorporated. 

1 cup powdered sugar
2 T melted butter
1/2 t vanilla

Mix icing ingredients until it is of a drizzle consistency. If it is too thick, then thin with a small amount of milk (1/2 teaspoon at time) until you have reached your desired thinness.

To make cinnamon pizza:
Take crust and brush on 2 TB  melted butter leaving 1/2 inch space around edges. 
Sprinkle cinnamon all around buttered crust.

Top pizza crust with 1/3 streusel mix . 

M and M pizza : Spread with 2 TB butter and top with 1/3 the streusel topping

Top with mini m and m's AFTER baking.

Apple Dessert:(sorry I did not get a great picture of this one!)

Brush crust with 1 TB melted butter and add a sprinkling of cinnamon

Top with  about 1 cup apple pie filling, you can do more but dont go over board, the crust wont support it (as I found out LOL the one pictured has WAY too much)
You can also use a cherry pie filling!

You can used the canned stuff or this recipe is easy:

3/4 cup water
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ginger
1/4 cup white sugar
2 TB cornstarch
1 large apple, peeled(about 1 cup sliced/diced)
1tsp lemon juice
Peel and chop apple and toss with lemon juice, set aside
In sauce pan combine sugar , cornstarch and seasonings. Mix well. Add water and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring often.
When it is thickened and bubbly add in apples and cook for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and cool.

Top with 1/3 the struesel topping.

All Desserts:

Bake at 450 degrees for 8 minutes. Cover with aluminum foil halfway through to keep streusel from burning if necessary. 

When finished baking, top with icing. 

I dont have a finished picture of the Apple Dessert!
