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

Ingredients

  • Dough for single-crust pie
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 medium baking apples, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • TOPPING:
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup caramel ice cream topping or caramel apple dip
  • Vanilla ice cream, optional

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to fit a 12-in. pizza pan; fold under or flute edge. Combine sugar, flour and cinnamon in a bowl. Add apples and toss. Arrange apples in a single layer in a circular pattern to completely cover crust. Combine the first 5 topping ingredients; sprinkle over apples.
  2. Bake until apples are tender, 35-40 minutes. Remove from the oven and immediately drizzle with caramel topping or dip. Serve warm with ice cream if desired.

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.
  • Dough for single-crust pie
    Combine 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour and 1/4 tsp. salt; cut in 1/2 cup cold butter until crumbly. Gradually add 3-5 Tbsp. ice water, tossing with a fork until dough holds together when pressed. Shape into a disk; wrap and refrigerate 1 hour.
