Who doesn’t love a nice dessert pizza?!  This one combines all of the wonderful flavors of fall for a tasty treat and a beautiful presentation.  Remember this little guy from last Halloween?  This recipe is another great way to use that delicious caramel from Gygi’s.

Caramel Apple Pie Pizza

Serves 8
Prep time 15 minutes
Cook time 40 minutes
Total time 55 minutes
Meal type Dessert
Misc Child Friendly, Pre-preparable

Ingredients

  • 1 single-crust pie pastry

Topping

  • 1/2 cup All purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup pecans (chopped)
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon table salt
  • 4 tablespoons salted butter (1/2 stick)

Filling

  • 3 apples (Golden Delicious)
  • 1/8 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter (melted)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon Flour
  • 2 splashes lemon juice concentrate

Note

Most recipes say that you should peel the apples.  I forgot and thought I had ruined it; however, to my surprise, I couldn't even tell the peelings were there when consuming!  So I guess the choice is up to you peeled vs. non-peeled apples, but I like anything that makes things easier and less time consuming!

I TRIED TO MAKE THE TOPPING STEP FASTER (always in a hurry)  BY COMBINING EVERYTHING WITH A FOOD CHOPPER WHICH RESULTED IN A CRUMBLY TOPPING LACKING IN TEXTURE.  Also, I didn't add all of the butter which resulted in a dry crumbly topping which would have been nicer had I not cut corners! :)  Do it how the recipe directs...why did I veer from my own recipe?  Good question!  Picture a more beautiful topping with whole oats, visible pieces of pecan, and clumps rather than crumbs and you will get the idea...

Directions

Topping
Step 1
Adjust rack to middle and heat oven to 350 degrees. Combine flour, pecans, oats, brown sugar, granulated sugar, cinnamon, and salt in medium bowl. Stir in melted butter until you have a nice crumbly texture. Set aside.
Step 2

Roll out pie dough round onto pizza pan (store bought or home made). Flute edges or fold edges under for the edge of the crust. I poked holes, but don't know that it is necessary
Filling
Step 3
Apple pizza 1
Combine in a quart-size ziploc bag apples (chopped in 1/2 cubes), sugar, cinnamon, lemon juice, butter, and flour. Shake it up to coat apples well. Arrange the apples in a single layer atop the pie crust.
Step 4

Sprinkle topping evenly over apples.
Step 5
Bake at 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes. Remove and drizzle with caramel topping. Serve cold or warm, with or without ice cream. It's good any way you like!
