Ingredients

Crust

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour (185g)
  • ½ teaspoon instant yeast
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • cup warm water (155ml)

“Sauce”

  • 8 oz cream cheese (225g)
  • ¼ cup sugar (50g)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips (175g)

Streusel

Instructions

Crust

  • Preheat oven to 500F (260C) and line a pizza pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, yeast, and salt and stir well.
  • Add water and stir until ingredients are mostly combined. Use your hands to continue to combine until the dough is cohesive enough to form a ball.
  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 5 minutes (until elastic). If needed, add additional flour 1 Tablespoon at a time if dough is too sticky and sticks stubbornly to your hands.
  • Roll dough out into a 12” circle and transfer to prepared pizza pan. Pinch edges or gently fold over to form a crust.
  • Prepare your cream cheese “sauce” by cutting your cream cheese into 8 pieces and place in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat for 10 second intervals, stirring between each, until cream cheese is easy to stir.
  • Add sugar and vanilla extract, stir well.
  • Spread cream cheese “sauce” evenly over pizza dough.
  • Sprinkle chocolate chips evenly overtop and press/spread into the “sauce”. Prepare your streusel.

Streusel

  • Add vanilla extract to melted butter, stir, and set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, use a fork to mix together flour and sugars.
  • Add butter mixture and use a fork to combine until mixture resembles coarse crumbles.
  • Sprinkle evenly over pizza
  • Bake pizza in 500F (260C) oven for 7 minutes or until streusel turns a golden brown.
  • Remove from oven, allow to cool for several minutes, then slice and serve.
