Apple Crisp Pizza
You know how you go to pizza buffet and you get the dessert treats and if you're like me, you say "now why don't we make these at home?" Well now you can, and this is amazing and fairly easy enough.
What you need:
Pastry for single-crust pie (9 inches)
⅔ cup sugar
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground Cinnamon
4 medium apples (like Gala, Fiji, Braeburn, Empire)
peeled and diced into ¼ inch pieces
½ cup all-purpose flour
⅓ cup packed brown sugar
½ cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
--mix above before adding butter
¼ cup salted butter, melted (see Note)
½ cup caramel topping
Note: I like to use salted butter because it cuts the
sweetness of the pizza. If you don't use salted butter
sprinkle some salt on top of the crisp. Trust me. It
brings out the flavors.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Roll pastry to fit a 12 inch pizza pan; (I used a cookie sheet)
fold under edges to give the pizza a bit of a raised crust. Combine sugar,
flour and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Add peeled, diced
apples and toss. Arrange the apples in a single layer
over the pie crust to completely cover it.
For the topping: Combine the flour, brown sugar, oats,
cinnamon, in a bowl. Mix well. Sprinkle topping evenly
over the apples. then add melted butter over all
Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until apples are
tender. Remove from oven and immediately drizzle with
I make my own caramel topping from a simple can of sweetened condensed milk, it has no high fructose corn syrup which makes me so happy.
Cut into pizza slices and serve warm
with ice cream. Makes 12 servings.
