When it comes to choosing a favourite food, we have trouble pinpointing the one we really like best. Usually, our favourite foods are sweets and baked good because, if we’re being totally honest, we have a huge sweet tooth. There is one thing, however, that we love eating more than basically anything- we’re obsessed with pizza! Unlike most who love it, however, it’s actually not the delicious, perfectly spiced tomato sauce or the gooey, warm melted cheese that makes us love pizza so much. It’s actually simply the way the different ingredients layer on top of each other on the warm dough to create an awesome blended taste that we love so much, regardless of what the toppings themselves are. Of course, that’s not to say we don’t have preferences when it comes to pizza; it’s just that we love the concept as a whole! Given that and our love of sweet, baked goods, imagine how incredibly excited we were, then, when we first stumbled across the delicious idea of a dessert pizza! The moment we found one recipe, we couldn’t help searching for and bookmarking more so we could try all different kinds.
Just in case you’re as intrigued by the mouth watering concept of a dessert “pizza” as we were, here are 15 of the best, most irresistible dessert pizza recipes we have come across or even tried out for ourselves so far!
1. Peaches n’ cream dessert pizza
Particularly around this time of year, when the weather is getting warmer and certain fruits and berries are coming back into season for the summer, we start to crave peaches. We love all kinds of fruits but peaches are our absolute favourite! That’s why we were so pleased when we came across this peaches and cream dessert pizza recipe featured on Julie Blanner. They show you how to make a sweet dough, as well as how to top it with a delicious creamy icing drizzle poured over glazed peach slices laid across the top.
2. Cinnamon brown sugar streusel pizza
Perhaps it’s just our love for the ways that more modern dessert recipes tend to mix elements of other desserts and baked goods together to make delicious hybrid treats, but since the very first time we tried making ourselves this cinnamon brown sugar streusel pizza featured on Hungry Little Girl, we’ve had to make a very concerted effort not to keep making ourselves the same recipe over and over again every single day! The sweet dough bottom and the crumbly top make the perfect pair for the drizzle that accompanies them.
3. Iced sugar cookie and apple dessert pizza
Just in case we really caught your attention with our mention of the blended recipes that combine delicious elements of different baked treats, here’s another one for your consideration and inevitable enjoyment! Southern Plate guides you through the process of making a dessert pizza that’s part iced sugar cookie and part apple pie, creating an irresistible blend of flavours that’s made perfect by adding a slight crunch in the form of crushed pecans crumbled on top.
4. Apple pie dessert pizza
Perhaps the phrase that has caught your attention most so far was “apple pie” when we mentioned a filling above that tastes similarly to the one you might find in that more traditional baked dish? Then we think you’ll be pretty pleased reading about this fantastic apple pie dessert pizza that shares a topping much the same as the filling you love so much. We quite enjoy this particular recipe from Yummy because it’s so thin, making it a lighter treat that won’t make you feel full and fatigued by the last bite.
