  4. Prepare the crumble topping by mixing flour, sugars, salt, and melted butter in a bowl.
  5. After baking the crust, brush it with the cinnamon butter. Spread apple pie filling over it, followed by the crumble topping.
  6. Bake for an additional 13-15 minutes until golden brown. Remove from the oven and let it cool for 5-10 minutes.
  7. For the glaze, mix confectioners’ sugar and milk until smooth. Drizzle over the warm pizza.
