While visiting a Wisconsin apple orchard bakery, I tried this tempting treat. At home, I put together this Apple Crisp Pizza recipe. As it bakes, the enticing aroma fills my kitchen, and friends and family linger waiting for a sample. —Nancy Preussner, Delhi, Iowa

  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

Nutritional Facts

1 piece: 286 calories, 12g fat (7g saturated fat), 30mg cholesterol, 159mg sodium, 44g carbohydrate (26g sugars, 2g fiber), 3g protein.


  1. Roll pastry to fit a 12-in. pizza pan; fold under or flute the edges. Combine sugar, flour and cinnamon in a bowl. Add apples and toss. Arrange the apples in a single layer in a circular pattern to completely cover pastry. Combine the first five topping ingredients; sprinkle over apples.
  2. Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until apples are tender. Remove from the oven and immediately drizzle with caramel topping or dip. Serve warm with ice cream if desired. Yield: 12 servings.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • Steer clear of one-dimensional apples like Red Delicious. Look for varieties that are both tart and sweet and stay firm after baking, such as Braeburn, Granny Smith or Honeycrisp.
  • Make-ahead tip: In our busy photo studio, we cut apples the day before and brush with lemon lime-soda to keep them from browning.
  • Homemade and store-bought pie pastry work equally well in this recipe.

    "I followed recipe as it was presented. This dessert is spectacular to look at! I made this for the Apple Challenge this week & plan to take it to our Social Hour this afternoon! Apples used were Granny Smith."

    "This turned out great!! I just added a couple dashes of nutmeg to the apples as well as the cinnamon. I used Granny Smith and honey crisp apples and the taste was awesome! I will definitely make this again."

    "While trying to be a hybrid between a pie and a crisp it does not succeed. Yes it maybe more easier than making a pie but alot more harder than making a crisp. The flavor just fell flat for me. I will still stick to my tried and true apple pie and crisp recipes!"

    "Delicious, quick and easy! Sometimes an entire pie is just too much for us. This recipe was perfect for dessert with just a few slices leftover that will definitely be gone tomorrow. I forgot the caramel topping, but the vanilla ice cream paired well with this pizza. With apple season just around the corner, I anticipate making this dessert often."

    "This has been a hit every time I've made it for a potluck or family dinner. I've been asked for the recipe countless times. I use a large tube of crescent rolls for the crust, because it's quicker and easier then making my own crust, and it turns out great every time. For variation, try a large tube of cinnamon rolls to make a crust. Press them out thin on the pan and seal the seams. Proceed with the recipe as written. Just when you thought it couldn't get any better! All that cinnamony goodness. YUM!!! And don't forget the vanilla ice cream."

    "This was so good. Just like apple pie without so much crust. I will definately be making it again. Used just 1/4 cup caramel sauce on top, that was plenty. Served with homemade vanilla ice cream."
