Sweet Cinnamon Sugar Pizza

An easy, lighter, just as sweet, sticky, and delicious take on the original pizza shoppe dessert pizza! The taste of cinnamon sugar that hits all the right notes and the perfect icing drizzle on top to tie it all together. Get over here in the Korner, you’ll want to share this one with me!

You know that sweet, sugary, cinnamon-y dessert pizza they have at the (good) pizza shoppes?! That stuff literally is a gift from above. It hits different on a whole lot of levels. Well, now, you don’t have to say “no thanks” because you maybe already ate one too many slices of pizza and the bloat is already setting in…maybe speaking from experience. This is a much lighter but just as delicious alternative. I, first, want to shout out Weight Watchers for the inspiration on this one. I have never used the program myself but have gotten the chance to read some of their tips and tricks and man, they are great for healthifying recipes!!!

I admit I was a little skeptical as I was putting this one together. I wasn’t sure it could pack a good enough punch with so few ingredients and steps. I was wrong. I actually took it over to a girlfriend’s house 2 DAYS after making and refrigerating it, we warmed it up, and they were soooo obsessed. There is nothing better than a crowd pleaser that took minimal ingredients and so little time! So lets do it! Time to make some people smile πŸ™‚

What You Need in Your Korner:

For the pizza:

  • 1 can crescents — I even used reduced fat
  • 1/8 cup cold butter
  • 1/8 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup flour

For the icing:

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1tbsp softened butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp milk — I used almond milk

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Mix together the sugars, cinnamon, flour. Then cut the cold butter into the dry ingredients mixture. Using your fingers, mix it together to form a crumble texture.

Take your crescents rolls from the can, and flatten them out on a pan lined with parcment paper (for easier clean up!) in 8 triangles. Sprinkle the crumble mixture evenly over the 8 triangles.

Bake at 400 degrees F for 7-10 minutes. I like it a tiny bit doughy so I took it out on the earlier end! But just enough for the crumble to brown and the crescent to bake through. As those are in the oven, whip up your icing. The good part…

In a medium bowl, whisk together your powdered sugar, vanilla, butter, and milk until well combined. Right when the cinnamon top crescents come out of the oven, drizzle mixture evenly right on top! Let it melt into the cinnamon sugar topping and cool briefly then dive the heck in. ENJOY πŸ™‚

I am so happy you stopped by the Korner for this one! Hang onto that icing recipe too because it is so good for breads, cinnamon rolls, and other sweet treats! See ya soon!
