I LOVE pizza. No doubt my favorite food of ALL. I could eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There are delicious “breakfast” pizzas, yummy appetizer pizzas for lunch and good ol’ PIZZA PIZZA for dinner. No need to worry about not getting your fruits and veggies CAUSE there is always the yummy veggie pizza and fruit pizza……..great snacks! I have yet to mention DESSERT pizza. I have made some and enjoyed ~ but this one knocked them nearly out of the water, they are still “in the water” and will appear once in a while as a special treat BUT this one was so so easy and so so good IT will be made often. Ever had the Pizza Hut apple dessert pizza? It is good. This is like it, though WAY better. Try it your next pizza night. Mine is EVERY friday. When is yours??? 🙂
* Only one tip with this one! Don’t add the oil with the yeast and water. Did it on accident and my yeast did not foam….opps….BUT it still rose so nicely.
* Opps, one more. I baked mine right along with my “dinner” pizza and then let it sit and cool while we ate. It was just right and ready for us when we were done eating.
Crust: 1 1/4 c. flour
1/2 c. warm water
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. sugar
1/2 TB. oil
Combine the flour, salt and sugar. Set aside. Combine the warm water and yeast, let set for 5 minutes to get all foamy. Add the oil. Add the yeast mixture to the flour mixture. Stir till combined. May need to add a tsp. or 2 of water to be sure all the flour is mixed in. (I did not have to.) Cover and let rise till doubled, about 45 minutes. Dump onto the counter and roll into a ball ~ using more flour if needed. Roll to a 10-11″ circle. Brush a 12″ pizza pan with oil and place crust on the pan. Brush the top with more oil. Set aside to rise a bit while making the topping.
Topping: 5 TB. COLD butter
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. white sugar
2/3 c. oats (I used the quick cook kind)
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tart apple, peeled, cored and chopped (my addition)
about 1/4 c. flour, IF using the apple (my addition)
Mix the butter, sugars, oats and cinnamon with a fork or food processor. Add the apples and flour. Press onto the un-baked pizza crust. Bake in a pre-heated 425* oven for about 10-15 minutes.
Glaze: 2 c. powdered sugar
1 1/2 – 2 TB. milk
3/4 tsp. vanilla
Mix and drizzle over pizza. Let set about 20 minutes before eating. Enjoy!
