In the spirit of experimentation, I have been trying out various dessert recipes.  Trying new things is something I am making a conscious effort to do more of here at i am baker.  (So if you have requests, do let me know!)

You may have noticed the change, maybe not.  In the last three weeks I have posted considerably more.  This is completely unlike me, as I used to post once a week or less.  But I love the challenge and the new personal goals that have been established.

There are some really positive changes happening around here and I am truly excited where it’s leading me.  I hope you will consider coming along for the ride!  It is definitely more fun with you!

I get asked on Facebook and Google+, “How can I get emails when you post?” Here is the easiest way to do that… simply locate this box on the right hand side of my blog and enter your email address.

It is by far the best way to know when I am updating and to be the first to get access to some pretty fun desserts!

Back to dessert pizza.  One of the best things about this is the shortbread cookie crumble on top of the pizza.  I asked my sweet Parker if he would help out and he was happy to lend a hand.

Ha!  I seriously need to stop laughing at my own jokes.  That or just keep on laughing.

I think I will choose laughing. It’s helps you lose weight right?  And after this pizza that is a good thing.

So this is a layer of cinnamon and sugar pizza, a cream cheese layer, a blueberry pie filling layer, then shortbread crumbles.

Not too shabby eh?

These four pieces look about right.  The kids can split the small ones. 😉

I know I have a fork in the picture, but in my defense, I took the picture before actually trying the pizza.  Once I actually had a bite, it was immediately apparent that this was a job for the ole hands.  No utensils needed!

  • Laura B says:

    This looks heavenly! I am sucker, however, for a good old cherry cheese pie and I think I might have to do a little adaptation of this and add a little lemon juice to the cream cheese mixture and sub cherry pie filling. 🙂

    I’ve been quietly following your blog for a while now, especially after hearing you speak at BHF in Miami, and your creativity always amazes me! You’re so versatile when it comes to baking (the entire baking community was blown away by all of your beautiful desserts in your Surprise-Inside Cakes cookbook!), and it’s really inspiring to hear that you’re branching out by posting more on your blog and trying new things. 🙂 I’m currently obsessed with pizza, so having both a savory one for dinner and a sweet one for dessert after sounds perfect to me! Already pinned!

    Hello there . This looks amazing!!’ I will be making soon enough. Perfect for a brunch. My question for you is, do you think that lemon pie filling would work as well? I would like to offer a couple flavors. I have made cinnamon roll pizza which is great but only good hot and bubbly do this fruit idea is marvelous. Any insight you could provide will be appreciated

    • Amanda says:
