That Skinny Chick Can Bake

Apple Pie Pizza

Did you know October is National Pizza Month??? A whole 31 days to indulge! But today, I’m shaking things up by baking an Apple Pie Pizza instead of the usual savory cheese topped variety.

This post is sponsored by Gallo Family Vineyards. See below for details.

Apple Pie Pizza

Dessert pizzas are nothing new, from the fruit numbers made with a cookie dough crust, cream cheese filling and fruit topping to those pizzeria offerings with a bread base and canned pie filling. My kids loved the latter, a frequent treat at their grade school parties.

Me? I’d rather make mine at home with a real, buttery pastry crust, sliced apples tossed in warm autumn spices and a streusel topping. You’re drooling, right? The picky hubby has eschewed any oatmeal topping for all the decades I’ve known him.

But the cinnamony, apple aroma wafting through my kitchen somehow changed his tune. He even had a before-dinner slice. Well, it is pizza, isn’t it??? And not everyone drinks beer with their pizza. I happen to prefer wine. And Gallo Family Vineyards has you covered.

Wine Pairings with Apple Desserts

I am a huge fan of  Pinot Grigio and it pairs delightfully with this apple pie pizza.  This crisp varietal features green apple, white peach and citrus notes which make it perfect to serve with fresh salads, rich seafood, grilled poultry along with acidic foods like tomatoes and lemon. But truthfully, I love drinking this Pinot Grigio with absolutely everything!

When it’s time to select a red wine, I gravitate towards Pinot Noir. With its subtle cherry and sweet fruit flavors, it tastes delicious with meaty fish like salmon, roast chicken and mushrooms. Not too heavy with slightly earthy flavors, it’s excellent to sip on throughout your meal.

  • Prep Time: 30 minutes
  • Cook Time: 40 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour 10 minutes
  • Yield: 8-12 servings 1x
  • Category: Dessert


  • Pastry for a single crust pie
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • A few gratings of fresh nutmeg
  • 4 baking apples (I used 2 Granny Smiths and 2 Golden Delicious), peeled, cored and sliced into 1/2-inch slices


  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup oatmeal
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, at room temperature


  • Caramel sauce, optional, to drizzle over pizza


  1. Preheat oven to 350º.
  2. Roll out pastry crust to fit a 12-inch pizza pan. Fold edges of pizza under to make a rim around the perimeter.
  3. In a large bowl, toss the apple slices with sugar, flour, and spices. Arrange over crust in a single layer. Combine the topping ingredients until well mixed and crumbly, and sprinkle over apples.
  4. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the apples are tender when pierced with a knife. Drizzle with caramel and serve warm. Top with ice cream if desired.

  1. Dear Liz, I did not know that October is National Pizza Month in the US – but that certainly sounds like a delicious idea to me! And I am loving the ides of serving a sweet version of that incredibly famous Italian dish as a dessert, especially with a topping of those fall apples and a crumb topping with oats!
    Wonderful idea, dear friend!
    Have a great Sunday!

  2. Sounds great, I could be into pizza month:@)

  3. Sounds and looks fabulous, Liz. Love that crumbly oaty topping.

    Happy Sunday

  5. I’m all for a slice of pizza any time of the day 🙂

  6. MMMMM, I love Pinot Grigo with desserts!! I haven’t ever had an apple pie pizza, however. I clearly need to change this!

  7. My preference is white wine with pizza too! I love that they still use a cork, definitely a plus in my books. Your apple pie pizza sounds great, I’m glad Bill enjoyed it too! National Pizza Month?

  8. Everyone loves apple pie and everyone loves pizza so I think this is a real winner.

  9. Oh my goodness, Liz, your description of this pizza has me drooling for sure! I think this would make a good dessert to add to our Thanksgiving feast! Thank you for sharing!

  10. I really with I could eat pizza every day for whole month 😀

  11. I think Bill is on to something. A slice of pizza for an appetizer and then a slice for dessert!

  13. You know, I’m inspired to use my new favorite gluten free pizza crust to make this for dinner, umm, err, dessert!

  14. You’ve got me inspired, Liz! Apple pie pizza with the crumbly Bill-approved topping does look fantabulous. As does your idea of using a cookie dough base sometimes =)

  15. This is pretty much the dessert pizza I dream about at night, but with pizza dough as the crust. Pizza Hut used to have it on their lunch buffet in apple, cherry, and blueberry and it was crazy good. I seriously need to put my twist on this awesome recipe you have here.

  16. Liz, you’re tempting me with your desserts this month! Your apple pizza looks mouth-watering.

  17. I love having one whole month devoted to pizza — and if anyone could put up with me, I’d eat it each and every single day! But this apple dessert pizza would blow my family away! We used to eat an apple-strudel-type dessert pizza when we lived in Iowa and have never found a recipe for it. I think this is the ONE! Thank you so much for sharing it! Bill is going to LOVE this!

  18. Cool! I’m off to a picnic & don’t forget to drop by with your pie! xoxo

  25. Liz, this is one delicious dessert pizza and I know my family would be all over this , inhaled in just minutes… Happy Autumn to you!

  26. I’ll have to try pairing pinot grigio with apples. I wouldn’t have thought to do that but the sweet flavors in the wine would complement apples well.

  32. Gallo Pinot Grigio is one of my faves also and having it with your Apple Pizza sounds divine!

  34. Lizzy,
    I’ve never made or had a sweet pizza. This looks delicious. My family would flip over this.

  35. Pizza AND apple! That means I’m in heaven! I love both, and this recipe sounds great, served with vanilla, cinnamon, or maybe mastic icecream, yum!
