A favorite fall recipe: Apple Crisp Pizza


Photo from Taste of Home
The other day I was thinking about some of our favorite fall desserts.  This Apple Crisp Pizza is probably our top favorite.  I've posted this recipe in the past, but it's been a few years.  This is a must-make recipe in the fall; I will often bake it several times (usually for get-togethers or potlucks) during the season.  You might like to try it, too!

APPLE CRISP PIZZA

Pastry for a single crust pie
2/3 cup sugar
3 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
4 medium apples, peeled and sliced 1/2” thick
TOPPING:
1/2 cup flour
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup old-fashioned (or quick-cooking) oats
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/4 to 1/2 cup caramel ice cream topping

Roll out pastry to fit a 12-inch pizza pan; fold under or flute edges of pastry.

Combine sugar, flour and cinnamon in a bowl; add apples and toss mixture together well. Arrange apple slices in a single layer over pastry in a circular pattern to completely cover pastry.

Combine the first five topping ingredients in a bowl; mix well and sprinkle over apples. Bake at 350º for 35 to 40 minutes or until apples are tender. Remove from oven and immediately drizzle caramel topping over apples. Serve warm.

Yield: 12 servings

This is a wonderful dessert and makes your kitchen smell so good while it is baking!  Let me know how your family and friends like this dessert if you try it!

  4. Hi ladies!

    I found this recipe in Taste of Home years ago and have been making it ever since. It is the yummiest apple dessert that I know of. It sounds a bit fussy with the arranging of the apple slices, but it really isn't difficult and doesn't take all that long. The caramel ice cream topping is the final touch! It's what "makes" the dessert for me.

    This could be served with vanilla ice cream, but I never have. It doesn't seem to need anything extra.

    Let me know how you like this recipe if you try it!

  6. Hope you try it, Denise! We just love this recipe! Hope you enjoy this if you try it. I'd been planning to bake one for the church potluck yesterday, but our weekend took a busier turn than I planned, and I ended up taking some pumpkin squares I had baked on Friday. Maybe this week!
