Apple Crisp Pizza Dessert

Apple Crisp Pizza
Makes 12 servings

A very seasonal dessert and I just love the fact that this recipe is super duper easy to make and its similar to apple pit but with crunchy oats on top :) Feel free to leave a comment or follow me on this blog! Enjoy!

For the pizza:
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
For the topping:
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
1/4 cup white chocolate chips (optional)

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.

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Roll pastry to fit a 12 inch pizza pan; fold under edges to give the pizza a bit of a raised crust. 
  2. 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.
  3. For the topping: Combine the flour, brown sugar, oats, cinnamon, and butter in a bowl. Mix well until it is like wet sand. Sprinkle topping evenly over the apples and sprinkle some salt over the apple topping.
  4. 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.
