TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + rising Bake: 30 min. + cooling YIELD:12-16 servings

Ingredients

  • 2-1/2 to 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 egg
  • CHEESE TOPPING:
  • 2 packages (3 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • APPLE TOPPING:
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 5 medium apples, peeled and chopped
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • STREUSEL:
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • GLAZE:
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine 1-1/2 cups flour, sugar, yeast and salt. In a saucepan, heat the water, milk and butter to 120°-130°. Add to dry ingredients; beat just until moistened. Beat in egg until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • 2. Punch dough down. Press into two greased 12-in. pizza pans; build up edges. In a small bowl, combine the cheese topping ingredients. Spread over dough to within 1/2 in. of edges. In a saucepan, combine the apple topping ingredients; simmer, uncovered, until apples are tender. Spoon over cream cheese layer.
  • 3. Combine streusel ingredients; sprinkle over apples. Let stand for 15 minutes. Bake at 375° for 30-35 minutes or until crust is browned. Combine glaze ingredients; drizzle over warm pizzas. Cool on wire racks. Yield: 2 coffee cake pizzas (6-8 servings each).
