Apple Crisp Pizza

I've been eyeing the last bushel of apples in our kitchen for about a week now just wondering what we should bake. Lord knows, we've had enough fresh apples to last a lifetime this season. So why not bake the last few, right?

Thanks to many hours on Pinterest and a football game as an excuse for baking, I finally put those apples to good use.


The end result of this recipe was one of the most scrumptious items to ever leave my kitchen. Sweet, savory and you will already have 98% of the ingredients in your kitchen! I kid you not, this treat was baked at naptime and gone by bedtime. Hope you and your families enjoy as well!

makes 12 servings

Ingredients:
Pastry for single-crust pie (9 inches)
2/3 cup sugar
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground Cinnamon
4 medium apples (suggested: Gala, Fiji, Braeburn, Empire) peeled and diced into 1/4 inch pieces
Topping:
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup salted butter, softened (see Note)
1/2 cup caramel topping
Instructions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Roll pastry to fit a 12 inch pizza pan; fold under or flute edges of crust. Combine sugar, flour and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Add peeled, diced apples and toss. Arrange the apples in a single layer over the pie crust to completely cover it. 
For the topping: Combine the flour, brown sugar, oats, cinnamon, and butter in a bowl. Mix well. You may need to get hands on and mush it together. You want a wet sand texture. Then sprinkle  topping evenly over the apples.
Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until apples are tender. Remove from oven and immediately drizzle with caramel topping. Cut into pizza slices and serve warm with ice cream.
