Like a Dessert Pizza Pie, that’s amore!

This weekend we were invited over to a friend’s house for a pizza party. Now, this wasn’t any normal pizza party – our friend is a gourmet creator and conisuer of pizza. He makes some pretty amazing gourmet pies, and asked us to partake.

I was put in charge of dessert, and I immediately went to work researching ideas. Obviously, given the high expectations of dinner, I had to at least try to keep up on my end of the deal. I discovered the perfect idea would be a dessert pizza. What I created was inspired by this recipe.

Dessert Pizza – Apple Strudel

Ingredients for Pizza

1 Pizza Pie Dough

4 Medium Granny Smith Apples (you can also keep it nice and easy by using a 10 oz Can of Apple Pie Filling)

1 TBSP Cinnamon

1/2 C Quick Cooking Oats

1/2 C Flour

1/2 C Brown Sugar

1/4 C Butter, plus melted butter to spread on crust

Ingredients for Glaze

1 C Confectioner’s sugar

2 TBSP Milk

1 tsp Vanilla

Preparation

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

Peel and dice your apples. Heat skillet to medium-high, and saute apple pieces with a little butter until tender. Sprinkle some sugar if you like, but don’t overdo it as the toppings to this dish are pretty sweet.*

*If you opt to use the can of apple pie filling – follow this step – Cut up the apples a bit to make into smaller bites.

Roll pizza dough onto pizza sheet. Brush with melted butter. Pour cooked apples (or your apple pie filling) over dough.

In a bowl, mix together the brown sugar, cinnamon, oats and flour. Cut butter into mixture. You can do this with two knives (which I find to be annoyingly ineffective) or you can mush the butter into the mixture with a fork. I went fork route.

Sprinkle sugar/cinnamon/butter mixture on top of the apples.

Bake for 24 minutes, or until the pie is a nice golden brown.

As pizza is cooling, mix together your glaze. Pour all three ingredients into a bowl and stir vigorously with a small whisk. Drizzle glaze over pizza.
