  1. Not with frozen crust, but I can't imagine it being different from fresh. I've done assorted things--one is cream cheese, egg, vanilla, some sugar (kind of like cheesecake filling but I don't use a recipe), then top w/ dollops of nutella or chocolate and bake.

    1. I'm not a big fan of sweetened-bread type things, so would avoid the sweet toppings on bread dough. But, an alternative to using frozen pizza dough would be to bake brownie batter in a pizza pan, and top with grated white chocolate and bits of dark chocolate, plus pecans or other types of nuts on top. Gives the look of a pizza, but tastes like real dessert!

      1. I have tried to re-create Pizza Hut's dessert pizza with some success. I usually make the pizza dough, but frozen would do. I just spread on prepared pie filling (I've used apple and blueberry), sprinkled with brown sugar, baked at 400F for 20 mins, and topped with an icing that my wife has made both times. Sorry I don't know much about the icing other than that it must be made with ingredients that won't just dissolve when applied to the hot pizza.

        1. Use store bought sugar cookie dough. Let it sit on the counter for about 10 minutes, then press into your pizza pan. Bake as indicated, cool. Top with your favorite non-bake cheesecake filling and then fresh fruit, maybe something pretty like strawberries, kiwi, and mandarin oranges. Or skip the cheesecake and do nutella. Helloooo Dolly!

          1. re: Oh Robin

            My mom used to make this all the time, although she did vanilla pudding. i think it would be much better with cheesecake! It was really pretty with strawberries, kiwi, blueberries, shredded coconut. Bananas got yucky.

          2. I would suggest pre-baking the crust a bit before adding the toppings. Otherwise it'll be soggy.
