Taste of Tuesday - Apple Crisp Pizza

There's no doubt Fall is my favorite season. Halloween, sweaters, boots, blankets, cozy fires, outdoor Fall activities. The list could go on and on. If there's one thing that's high on the list though, it's the food. Ok, yea, I can eat food every day all year long but with Fall, the food is just so much better. Apples and pumpkin are two things we love to use alot during this season, so good! due to the not-so-fun inspiration of the 30 degree weather we had this morning, I sat here thinking about one of my favorite Fall recipes. My mom got the recipe from Pinterest.

  • Pastry for single-crust pie (9 inches)
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground Cinnamon
  • 4 medium apples (like Gala, Fiji, Braeburn, Empire) peeled and diced into 1/4 inch pieces

Topping of Pizza:
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup salted butter, softened (see Note)
  • 1/2 cup caramel topping

  1. 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.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  3. Roll pastry to fit a 12 inch pizza pan; 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. I didn't use all of my apples because I had really big apples.
  4. For the topping: Combine the flour, brown sugar, oats, cinnamon, and butter in a bowl. Mix well. I like to use my clean hands to get in there and mush it together until it's the texture of wet sand. Sprinkle topping evenly over the apples.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until apples are tender. Remove from oven and immediately drizzle with caramel topping. Cut into pizza slices and serve warm with ice cream. Makes 12 servings.
  6. Enjoy!

Sounds good! I'm going to have to try it! I miss fall here in Florida! Especially when I see/hear/read about the pretty scenery, the fall foods, and my favorite fires in the fireplace!

I remember when Cici's pizza was still open and you could get all you can eat apple pie pizza. This stuff definitely sounds like a sweet treat! :)))

I looked at the Apple Crisp Pizza and my stomach went "gurgle." To make matters worse, I'm on a cleanse day :-P
