Apple Crisp Pizza with Caramel Sauce

Apple Crisp Pizza with Caramel Sauce
I am a huge fan of apple desserts and I always enjoy fall and early winter with their huge selection of apples to use in them. Some of my favourite apple treats include apple crisps and apple pies so when I came across a recipe that combined the two an served them up in pizza form as an apple crisp pizza on The Girl Who Ate Everything I knew that I would have to try it! The basic idea is that a pie crust is rolled out like a pizza dough and topped with a layer apples coated in cinnamon and then topped in a layer of rolled oat crumble. Not only is this recipe amazing but it is dead simple to make once you have your pie crust! Really the hardest part is peeling and dicing the apples! If all of this was not enough, the finished product is smothered in caramel sauce and the apple and caramel flavour combination is simply divine! You will have to excuse me while I go and warm up a another slice!

Of course the apple crisp pizza smothered in caramel sauce is even better with a melting scoop of vanilla ice cream on top!

I am terribly sorry to report that the slice of apple crisp pizza did not survive the photoshoot!

Ingredients
  • 4 medium apples, peeled and cut into 1/4 inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice (1/2 a lemon)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 pie crust
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup caramel sauce
Directions
  1. Toss the apples in the lemon juice.
  2. Mix the sugar, flour and cinnamon in a large bowl and toss with apples.
  3. Roll the pie crust out to a 12 inch circle and fold a bit of the edge under so that there is a raised outer circle.
  4. Place the apple mixture onto the pie crust in a single layer.
  5. Mix the flour, sugar, oats, cinnamon and butter in a large bowl until it forms crumbs and sprinkle them over the apples.
  6. Bake in a preheated 350F oven until the top is golden brown and the apples are tender, about 30-40 minutes.
  7. Serve warm topped with caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream.

I got a little bored waiting forthe ice cream to melt so here is a shot of my food photography setup.

Wow, talk about timing. Apple crisp is what I planned to make for our (US) Thanksgiving, but wanted to give it a little twist. An apple crisp pizza is absolutely perfect.

Thanks, as always, for your wonderful recipes.

I'm always looking for new ways to reinvent apple crisp. This sounds awesome!

This is wonderful. I added crumbled bacon to the apples and substituted bacon fat for the melted butter. Turned out perfectly.

Blue Ridge Mountains said...

I made this for lunch dessert today. The guys thought it was yummy.

Kevin said...

... tc: I should have thought of adding bacon! Great idea!

I made this for a dinner party the other night and it was fantastic. I did have to bake it for 10 minutes longer than stated but it came out looking great. Great taste, texture and couldn't be easier to make. A few people decided to do without the caramel and they added vanilla ice cream. Either way it was a winner.
