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. This is one of those Apple Desserts you can’t resist!

The cinnamony, apple aroma wafting through my kitchen  caught the interest of the picky hubby. He even had a before-dinner slice. So if you’re looking for a unique autumn dessert that both kids and adults will inhale, this apple pie pizza fits the bill!

Dutch Apple Pie Pizza

What is Dutch apple pie you might ask? As someone who does not enjoy rolling out pie crusts, a pie with a crumb topping  is a dream dessert. And a Dutch apple pie is exactly that, an apple pie with no top crust, but instead topped with streusel. This easy apple dessert has the 3 components of a Dutch apple pie: pastry crust, sweetened, cinnamon spiced apples and the crumb topping.Apple Pie Pizza Process shots collage

How to Make a Dessert Pizza

  • Using an easy to roll out pie crust recipe with butter and cream cheese, make this dessert pizza a breeze to prepare. But even simpler is purchasing a ready to bake grocery store pie crust.
  • Purchase some yummy baking apples like Honeycrisp, Golden Delicious, Jonathans or Granny Smiths, and you’re ready to go. Local pie apples in your area are wonderful, too.
  • Slice your apples approximately 1/2-inch thick. Too thick and they will not be cooked when the crust is perfectly browned.
  • Years ago, I made this homemade pizza recipe with an oat streusel, but the hubby prefers his oatmeal only for breakfast. So a simpler brown sugar, flour and butter crumble was substituted. Either topping makes a delicious apple dessert recipe.
  • Take a sharp knife and pierce a few apples at the end of the baking time. The knife should insert easily when they’re done.
  • You’ll need a pizza pan if you want to make sure your apple pie pizza is round, but a sheet pan will work just as well. Don’t bother buying an extra pan if homemade pizza is not a regular occurrence in your kitchen.

Ingredients

Pizza:

  • Pastry for a single crust pie. I used this Apple Galette pastry dough.
  • 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

Topping:

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

Garnish:

  • Caramel sauce, optional, to drizzle over pizza
  • Vanilla Ice Cream

Instructions

  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.
