Vanilla Crumb Dessert Pizza

When I was growing up one of my favorite places to eat was Godfather’s Pizza. All you could eat pizza and salad bar buffet was this pizza loving girls fantasy land. And to top it all off, they had the most delicious dessert pizza. Dessert. Pizza. Come on people, it really doesn’t get any better than that!

Of course like all good things, Godfather’s Pizza came to an end and closed up shop. Even now, years later though I was still dreaming of that dessert pizza. So whats a food blogger to do? Create my own version of course! I have made this pizza twice now, and I think I can safely say that this tastes almost identical to the pizza I remember.

I used my favorite homemade pizza crust, but store-bought or frozen will work just as well. The other key here is store-bought pudding. No homemade here, no cook and serve. Straight from those little plastic cups is what you want here. I have also bought vanilla pudding from my deli section and it worked wonderfully.
