Cherry Cinnamon Streusel Pizza

I forgot to take a pic of the pizza after it was cooked :)

Homemade or store bought pizza dough (I added my pizza crust recipe to the bottom of this post that I use)
1 TBSP butter, melted
Cinnamon (to sprinkle)
1 Can Cherry Pie Filling
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

1.Preheat oven to 460° F. Mix together streusel ingredients with a fork, or your clean hands, then side aside.
2.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. Cook the crust for 3-5 min before adding the cherry filling.
3. Top pizza crust with cherry filling and streusel mix, crumbling in your hands to make nice pea sized chunks.
 4.Bake at 460° F for 10-13 minutes depending on the thickness of the pizza.And making sure the middle of the crust is done . 
5.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.
6.When finished baking, top with icing in a circular pinwheel pattern. Cut up and enjoy!

1 cup warm water (115 degrees)
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons active dry yeast

In a medium mixing bowl, combine water, sugar, and salt. Add flour and yeast all at once, and stir until a soft dough forms. Add additional flour if needed, and knead gently for 5-10 minutes, until dough is smooth and elastic.
*Or, you can mix this dough in a stand mixer, until soft and elastic. Mix for 6 min
Butter or grease a 16-inch round pizza pan. Using your buttery hands, lift the soft, sticky dough onto the pizza pan and gently spread to the edges.

* We loved the cinnamon pizza that I have on my blog so we decided that we would try a cherry one. This is the same basic idea only you do need to cook the crust a few min before you add the cherry and topping to make sure that the crust gets cooked all the way thru. And it needs a couple more min to cook. Other then that it turned out great. I totally forgot to take a pic of it after it was cooked. Sorry ha ha
