Dessert Pizza

“To my way of thinking dessert is the way to end a meal so why not have a dessert pizza especially when you are already making pizza for supper. This is easy to put together. Use your favorite pizza crust..homemade or bought, your favorite filling, make a streusel and a little glaze and you are good to go. I used my daughter Brenda’s recipe for the crust. Blueberry or cherry pie filling can be used instead of apple or if you have a large crowd to feed make one of each!  I’m thinking pears would be delicious as well.”

Ingredients and Instructions:

Dough:

  • Recipe yields 3 pizza crusts..using 12 inch pizza pans
  • Freeze extra pre-baked pizza crusts if not using right away.
  • You need 1 crust for this dessert
  • 1 1/2 cups plus 3 tablespoons warm water
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 4 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons instant yeast
  • Mix and knead until well blended.
  • Place dough in a greased bowl, cover and let rise till doubled in bulk.
  • Divide dough into 3 pieces and roll out to fit 3 pizza pans.
  • Let rise 40 minutes. Pre-bake crust at 425º for 8 minutes.
  • Now you are ready to spread on the filling and streusel.

Apple Filling:

  • 4 apples, (approx 4 cups) peeled, cored, and sliced..I used McIntosh
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Saute apples in butter until tender.

Streusel:

  • 1/2 cup quick cooking oats
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • Mix dry ingredients and cut in the butter with a pastry blender or by hand until mixture is crumbly.

Glaze:

  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Blend well until smooth.
  1. Spread apple filling over pre-baked pizza crust.
  2. Sprinkle streusel over top and bake at 425º for 15 minutes or until crust is golden in color. If you like the crust a bit crunchy like we do, bake it a little longer.
  3. Cool for 10 minutes, then drizzle with glaze.
  4. Yield: 10 slices
