  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F.
  • 2
    Unroll pie crust; place on ungreased 8-inch round pizza pan* or cookie sheet. Crimp edge; poke shallow holes in dough with fork.
  • 3
    Brush entire crust with melted butter. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
  • 4
    Bake about 12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool at least 10 minutes.
  • 5
    Meanwhile, in medium bowl, stir together cream cheese spread, 1/2 cup of the sugar and the vanilla.
  • 6
    Spread cream cheese mixture over cooled crust. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup sugar evenly over top (use more sugar if you’d like a thicker shell). Holding kitchen torch 3 to 4 inches from top of pizza, caramelize sugar by heating with torch about 2 to 4 minutes, moving flame continuously over sugar in circular motion until sugar is melted and light golden brown. Serve immediately.

Expert Tips

  • Don’t have a torch? No can broil this pizza.
  • Change it up by adding some flavor to the cream cheese base—maybe use grated lemon peel or an extract of your choice!
  • *Do not use a glass pizza pan; it cannot withstand the heat from the kitchen torch or broiler and may break.
