Apple Pizza Recipe

One year, seeking some variety for our Apple Pie Bake-Off, I made an Apple Pizza, which we all enjoyed.

A word of caution, however: be sure to build up the edge crust, and/or place a cookie sheet underneath

My first Apple Pizza dripped all over my brand new oven and set off the smoke detector!

Dough for a 9-inch pie crust. (Click here for how to make your own pie crust.)

2-3 apples, peeled, cored, and sliced

2 TB butter, melted

2 TB sugar

1- 1/2 TB flour

1/4 cup strawberry, raspberry, or apricot jam

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 375°F.

Peel, core, and slice apples and place in a bowl with melted butter, sugar, and flour.

Place pie crust dough on a sheet of waxed paper or parchment paper. Roll it into a round pizza-size shape. Transfer to a large baking sheet.

Spread the jam evenly over the crust. Fold over the edges of the dough to make a pizza-like rim. Arrange the apples in concentric circles on the jam. Bake about 30-35 minutes. Crust should be golden brown and the apples tender.

Cut into slices like pizza and serve warm.

Tips from Jane

— You can use any kind of jam or jelly you like. I prefer raspberry, but it’s up to you.

— You could also spice it up by sprinkling chopped walnuts or pecans among the apple slices.
