Wow, it has been a while hasn’t it?! We are still having our pizza nights but I have been doing your typical pizzas. Since nothing exciting I have been delaying posting. Last week I decided to try Apple Pizza. Since apples are in season I thought it would be worth trying as a pizza for our Friday night. I made this pizza twice. Once at home for our Pizza Friday and again when I visited Scott and Kathleen in Denver. The one I made in Green Bay everyone enjoyed and it was eaten over the weekend. However, I think the one I made in Denver was tastier than the first. I will try that again this Friday and see what the Pizza Friday crew thinks. 😉
Pizza Friday Apple Pizza
4-6 medium apples (peeled and sliced thinly)
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 Tablespoons flour
Mix all of the above together and set aside.
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup oats
1/4 cup cold butter
Mix in food processor until crumbly.
The apple pizza I did in Denver was a little different (by the way my visit with Scott and Kathleen in Denver was fabulous! More details soon!!) . Here goes;
1/4 cup butter
5 medium apples, peeled and sliced thinly
3/4 cup sugar
3 tablespoons flour
2 teaspoons cinnamon
Place sugar, flour and cinnamon in a medium saucepan and mix together. Add the apples and butter and mix over medium heat until bubbly. (this will take about 5 minutes. Be patient.) Continue to stir the apple mixture until apples are tender, about 5 minutes.
Streusel topping same as above however I used white sugar in place of brown sugar in Denver.
Instead of using butter to start topping the pizza I used a cream cheese topping; 4 ounces cream cheese, 1 Tablespoon sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon mixed together. Started with the cream cheese mixture, added apples, the topped with streusel. Bake at 425 degrees for 15-20 minutes. This was more like apple crisp on top of a pizza dough. I enjoyed this apple pizza more than the first one. I guess we will have to see what the Pizza Friday crew thinks this coming Friday. I say give these pizzas a try. They really are simple and delicious!
