When you find a great recipe like this Pizza Dough, you’ll soon have it memorized and will be making it all the time! This dough is so versatile. In this recipe, the dough is used for this delicious Peach Crumble Dessert Pizza. It is also the PERFECT Pizza Dough for a savory pizza. My daughters and I taught a class entitled “One Dough to Rule them All” at the “Pinner’s Conference” in Salt Lake City. We featured this incredibly versatile Pizza Dough. With this one simple recipe, we showed four different techniques for making the dough into beautiful Twisted Breadsticks, Rosemary Artisan Bread, Pretzel Bites and of course this Peach Crumble Dessert Pizza.

This recipe will make enough dough for three – 14″ pizzas*. Most of the time I make a couple of savory pizzas for dinner and a dessert pizza for later. You can also refrigerate the dough and use it within a day or two for something else. Maybe some Pizza on the Grill, Pigs in the Blanket, Cheese Stuffed Calzones or a Braided Pizza Calzones?

*The recipe below is enough toppings for one 14″ Peach Crumble Dessert Pizza – so if you are planning to make 3 pizzas, you will need to triple the toppings.
Divide the dough into three equal portions. Roll each into a 14″ round crust.
I start by making a round ball first, then flatten it. Then I roll it out with a rolling pin and use my fingers, help to create a rimmed edge. Place the dough onto a 14″ pizza pan that has been sprayed with Pam and sprinkled lightly with cornmeal. “Dock’ the dough with a fork as shown. (This will prevent the dough from developing large bubbles as it bakes.)
Pre-bake the pizza crust in a 425° oven for 6 minutes. (You will finish baking it after the toppings have been put on…)
Meanwhile, prepare the Crumble Topping:
1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
1/3 cup flour
1/3 cup rolled oats
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup softened butter
Measure the dry ingredients into a bowl and use a pastry cutter to cut in the butter until the mixture is crumbly.
After the pizza round has been pre-baked for 6 minutes, remove it from the oven and top with:
1 large can of sliced peaches (that have been well drained)
Then sprinkle the crumble mixture evenly over the peaches.
Return to oven and bake an additional 7 minutes. Before removing from the oven, turn on the broiler. Allow the pizza to broil for 1 minute. Watch carefully! (This helps the crumble topping to get nice and crispy!)
Remove pizza to a wire rack. Allow to cool about 10 minutes while you are preparing the icing (or you can use ready made frosting that has been warmed slightly in the microwave for easy drizzling.)
2 teaspoons butter, softened
3/4 cup powdered sugar
2 – 3 tablespoons milk (give or take)
Whisk together the butter and a small amount of powdered sugar to form a paste. Add part of the milk and stir. Add additional powdered sugar or more milk if needed, until it is a smooth enough consistency to drizzle over the pizza.
Cut into wedges to serve. Serve while still warm.
