Man, I am ready for the weekend. How ’bout you?

It has been nonstop for us this week and thankfully school lets out early tomorrow for MANDATORY ACTIVITY DAY! Woooo! I really can’t complain much about living on an Army post. I keep telling myself that I just have to get through today and then it’s all downhill to the weekend.

The highlight of my week was this Caramel Apple Crisp Pizza. I wanted something quick and easy to make for a special afterschool snack but I had no idea that it would be such a hit. There wasn’t a single piece left at the end of the day. 

My favorite part of any fruity pie-type dessert is the crust/crumble/crisp/whatever so to have crust plus crisp in one dish? Heaven! I’m kind of obsessed with this recipe now and I can’t stop thinking about it. The good news is that the pie crust I bought comes in packs of 2. The bad news is that it comes in packs of 2.

If I’m up 5 pounds by next week, you’ll know why.

Caramel Apple Crisp Pizza

Ingredients

1 refrigerated pie crust
2/3 cup sugar
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
4 medium apples, peeled and diced into 1/4 inch pieces
For the 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 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter, softened
For the drizzle?
1/2 cup caramel topping

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Spray a pizza pan with oil.
  2. Place pie crust on the pan and fold under edges to give the pizza a bit of a raised crust.
  3. Combine sugar, flour and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Add peeled, diced apples and toss.
  4. Arrange the apples in a single layer over the pie crust to completely cover it.
  5. To make the topping, combine the flour, brown sugar, oats, and cinnamon in a bowl. Use a pastry cutter or your fingers to mix the butter into the flour until the butter is in pea-sized pieces. Sprinkle over the apples.
  6. 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.
