Godfather's Cinnamon Streusel Pizza

Gotta love dessert pizza! This one was a huge hit at our house! Thanks to Baker Lady for the recipe!

Homemade or store bought pizza dough
1 TBSP butter, melted
Cinnamon (to sprinkle)
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 oil
1 cup powdered sugar
1 TBSP milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 460° F. 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, crumbling in your hands to make nice pea sized chunks.
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!
