APPLE PIE PIZZA


You could say I started the new year off with a big slump. Not in a bad way. Just a lazy way. Too many New Years too fast makes me wonder whether I'm coming or going.

New Years  seem to be standing around every corner and jumping out at you these days. And before you've had time to be done with the old one you find yourself standing and talking to a new one. And wonder where the old one went.

Nevertheless, I made some of Jamie's pizza dough yesterday, rolled them out in discs, half baked them and stacked them in the freezer in plastic bags so that FMs could make their own pizzas when they're hungry.

But this morning I made a sweet pizza. A quick apple pie pizza. Apple slices cooked in a skillet with a knob of butter and some brown sugar, topped the pizza discs with them and gave them a quick basking in the oven. 


In what has seemed a long time I had a quick, guilt free, crusty apple pie for breakfast. It wasn't bad at all.

The recipe ~


Pizza crust recipe here (JO's of course). They are ever so easy and perfectly crusty!


Apple pie apples ~

4 granny smiths, peeled, cored and sliced into rounds (about 1/4 inch thick slices). Macerate the slices with a about 1 T of lemon juice and 1 1/2 tsp of cornflour. Mix well and leave aside.


A knob of butter ( a bout 1 T)
1/4 cup brown sugar

some apricot jam
a pinch of cinnamon
a pinch of salt
2-3 T of water

Melt butter in a skillet. Pour in the sugar and stir until sugar melts. Throw in the macerated apple slices and stir gently to coat the apple slices well. Cover and allow to simmer for about 7-8 minutes or until the apples are tender as you would like them to be. Add water if too dry.

Add a pinch of cinnamon and a pinch of salt. Stir in to incorporate. The caramel from the butter and sugar should be thick.


Top two 6 inch pizza discs with the apple pie apples and dot them with small knobs of butter randomly.


Bake in a 180 C oven for about 20 minutes until the discs are golden brown at the edges and crispy and the apple topping bubbling.


I brushed the tops with some apricot jam to make them glowy, photogenic and glazey.

I had some memorable pizza when I was in the US last year. The crust was so thin and crispy - they call it Pie. Your applie pie pizza had me thinking about those Pies again.... I like the idea of making this a sweet treat :) Lovely, Zurin.

Mmmmm......what a great combination. Apple pie plus pizza. Must've tasted amazing

Im not usually a fan of sweet pizza. Yours may be just the one to convert me. It looks so tempting. And no excuses for "slumping" or being "lazy". Okay. You are allowed. I'm glad you have been enjoying the "New Year's".

PS: I really like your top photo. Truly, truly cookbook material. Mariana xxx

Lovely idea. I'll maybe copy you and put aside some extra bread dough later in the week.

Have you had your parcel yet ?

I was just thinking about you on Monday and was wondering how you are doing. Grandchildren still there ?

I'm up to my eyeballs still .... but its getting exciting as I launched the new letters and numbers moulds. It's going bonkers ! That's why I'm still online in the wee early hours.

Hope you are well my dear.

Loads of love x

this is perfect for any time of the date, looks so good!

This pizza may not look guilt-free, but it does have all the components of a healthy snack—from the fiber-rich apples to the antioxidants in the lemon juice and cinnamon, or so I seem to think :)

In any case, I would welcome these treats, anytime.

Stacking pizza dough is a brilliant idea, why did I haven't thought of it. Sure comes handy. That pizza sure held my mouth watering, tempting indeed.

The Gypsy Chef said...

Zurin,
My Grandmother used to cook apples and bake them on biscuit dough. Your post took me back to that time. Thanks for sharing.
