I just love crème brûlée. And to make it even better, I mashed it up with a dessert pizza! This recipe is light, but so jam-packed with flavor. The flaky pie crust is a tasty base for the almost cheesecake-like topping. Once you take a bite, you’ll see that just one slice is not enough!

Crème Brûlée Pizza

Unroll the defrosted pie crust and place it onto the 8-inch pie pan. Crimp the edges as best as you can and poke shallow holes into the dough with a fork.

Now brush the entire crust and edges with melted butter and sprinkle on some cinnamon. Then bake the crust at 350°F for approximately 12 minutes, or just until it’s golden. While it’s baking, mix together the cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar and vanilla in a medium bowl. 

Once the crust is out of the oven and has cooled, top it with the cream cheese mixture and then top that with 1/4 cup sugar (or a little more if you’d like a thicker shell).

Now torch that baby until it’s golden, crispy and smells like sweet, sugary heaven!

Cut it up into slices as if it’s a “normal” pizza…but we know it’s NOT!
