This Cherry Dessert Pizza is a little slice of heaven– imagine cherry topping bursting with robust cherry flavor alongside a buttery streusel topping and sweet drizzle. This dessert pizza is commonly found at pizza buffets like Pizza Ranch and Cici’s Pizza. Since those are a bold no-go I just had to make my own for our family pizza nights. Then I soon found that we enjoyed this cherry dessert pizza so much we started baking it much more often than just pizza nights!
