Apple Pie Pizza
Recipe type: desserts
  • The Rest
  • 3-4 large Granny Smith apples (about 2-1/2 pounds). peeled, cored and cut into 14-inch slices
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons apricot jam or preserves
  • 1 14-inch pizza shell
  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the apples with the lemon juice.
  2. In a saute pan over high heat melt the butter until it just begins to froth.
  3. Add the apple slices and cook, stirring occasionally, for 4 minutes.
  4. Add the brown sugar and cinnamon and cook for 2 minutes or until the apples are barely tender. Transfer the apples to a bowl (let cool for 10 minutes if you are going to make the pizza at one).
  5. In a small saucepan, heat the apricot jam until it liquefies.
  6. Set aside.
  7. Brush the entire top of the crust, including the border (or edge), with the apricot jam.
  8. Spread the reserved apples evenly over the crust.
  9. Sprinkle the streusel over the apples.
  10. Bake the pizza in a preheated 450 F oven for 15 minutes.
  11. Let the pizza stand for about 10 minutes before cutting and serving.
