To make the best ever cinnamon bun pizza

Okay after you’ve poured on the melted butter, give it a minute to soak in. Then, spread the cinnamon sugar over the melted butter. Leave a quarter inch on all the sides so that the cinnamon sugar doesn’t run off the pizza crust and into your oven.

I use this fun Cinnamon Toast Crunch seasoning blend that my husband found, which just happens to be a delicious cinnamon sugar. However, if you don’t have this, you can just make your own by using 1/4 Cup of Table sugar and 1 Tbsp of Ground Cinnamon.

While the crust is cooling, slowly stir in 1 Tbsp of the milk to the confection’s sugar. If the mixture is too thick, add in a little more until it reaches the desired consistency. You want it thick enough to stick to the back of your spoon, but thin enough to drizzle.

Can I make these into cinnamon sticks? Certainly you can. Just cut them into strips.

Can I substitute the milk? You can use heavy cream, half and half, or water in place of the milk. Just add the liquid slowly to the powdered sugar so that you don’t make it too thin.
