Apple Pizza Recipe

Pizza is a favorite at our house, so when I had some apples to use up, I started searching for an apple pizza recipe. I tailored this one to fit my family’s tastes. —Brenda Mowrey, Taylors, South Carolina
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 40 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:10-12 servings

Ingredients

  • 2-1/3 to 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • APPLE TOPPING:
  • 4 cups sliced peeled tart apples
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • CHEESE TOPPING:
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons caramel ice cream topping
  • STREUSEL:
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cold butter, cubed

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine 1-1/2 cups flour, sugar, yeast and salt. In a saucepan, heat water, milk and butter to 120°-130°. Add to dry ingredients; beat for 2 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a firm dough. Turn onto a floured surface; cover and let rest for 15 minutes.
  • 2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook and stir apples in butter over medium heat for 2 minutes. Combine the sugar, flour and cinnamon; stir into skillet. Cook 3 minutes longer. Reduce heat to low; cook, uncovered, for 4-6 minutes or until apples are tender, stirring frequently.
  • 3. In a small bowl, combine the cheese topping ingredients. For streusel, in a small bowl, combine flour and sugar; cut in butter until crumbly.
  • 4. Pat dough onto a greased 14-in. pizza pan, building up edges slightly. Spread with cheese topping, then apple topping. Sprinkle with streusel. Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Serve warm or cold. Yield: 10-12 servings.
