Dessert Apple Pizza with Wheat Crust

Dessert Apple Pizza


1 wheat pizza crust

1 large Granny Smith apple (or whatever kind you prefer for baking) – peeled, cored and sliced thin

About 3 Tb cinnamon sugar. (3 Tb sugar +1/2 tsp cin.)

¼ - 1/3 c Caramel sauce for ice cream

Powdered sugar for dusting.


Crust:

1 c warm water

2 ¼ tsp yeast

3 c flour (2 c all purpose, 1 c whole wheat)

2 tsp kosher salt

2 Tb olive oil.

I combine all and mix in my Bosch, but you can knead by hand if you like. Let dough rest/rise about 45 minutes. Punch down and form pizza crust 1 large or 2 small.

Pizza:

Spread apple slices all over crust. Sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar. Bake at 450 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until crust is golden and sugar is melted and glazed. Remove from oven and immediately drizzle all over with caramel sauce. Then lightly dust with a little powdered sugar. Eat warm. This goes great with some vanilla ice cream.

Just a tip, you can make the crust before dinner, and let it rest while you are eating, then finish the pizza when everyone is done eating, because it only takes a few minutes.

Enjoy!
