    Cicis still has the Bavarian Cream. It’s just not on the buffet so they have room for more pizza selections. To get it all you have to do is ask and they will put it in the oven and have it ready for you in a few minutes.

  2. Gloria

    This recipe does not make sense. It says at the very end how to make the crumb mix but you’re only supposed to put a fourth a cup of it on the item before you bake it well what do you do with the rest of it then?

    Thanks for the Cici’s Chocolate Desert Pizza. My particular favorite was a carmel or butterscotch creamy topping on Cici’s pizza. Much to my disappointment, it seems to have been discontinued. Can you help? Thanks for whatever you can do.

      I bet you it could be done the same as above. Look for the long-cooking pudding and make it the same way. It’s worth a shot, esp. if you make your own pizza crust or find it really cheap.
