It’s 90 degrees today in Iowa, but that doesn’t stop me from dreaming about fall, which will soon be here. I’ve got my sweaters and my boots ready, my comfort foods are ready to be slow cooked, and of course, I’m ready for all things pumpkin. I’ve made delicious Pumpkin Pie Caramel Biscoff Cheesecake, Overnight Pumpkin Oatmeal with Cinnamon and Sugared Pecans and now this delicious Pumpkin Streusel Dessert Pizza.
My love for dessert pizza definitely started with Godfathers Pizza. If you’ve never had a Godfather’s dessert pizza, you should seek one out. In college, we didn’t have a Godfathers nearby, so on weekends home I would buy a few and take them back with me to my dorm room… they were that good.
This Pumpkin Dessert Pizza combines my love for the classic dessert pizza and everyone’s favorite fall flavor. I usually cheat and use store-bought pizza dough mix, but you can use your favorite homemade pizza dough recipe if you prefer.
The streusel is filled with delicious pumpkin, brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice. You can even make your own pumpkin pie spice if you want.
I love having pizza nights once in awhile, especially with homemade pizza (or pizza braids) and there’s no better dessert to serve on pizza night than Pumpkin Streusel Dessert Pizza!
