Sweet pizzas are a long standing tradition in Italy, so why not enjoy them here? Frozen pizza dough is rather soft and delicate, well suited to take the place of pie crust. Thinly slicing the apples and baking the dough in a very hot oven makes this dessert a quick fix.Unknown Source

How to Make Apple Pizza

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 500. Grease bottom of a 16 x 11 inch rimmed baking sheet with butter.
    Mix sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.
  2. Press and stretch dough evenly into roughly 11 inch round on prepared baking sheet, then fold the edge inward 1/2 inch to create a lip. If the dough resists at first, let it rest for a minute and then continue. Arrange apples in rows on top of the pizza, overlapping them. Sprinkle all over with cinnamon sugar. Dot apple with bits of butter.
  3. Bake pizza til underside of dough is golden (you can lift up pizza with a metal spatula and take a peek) and apples are soft, about 15 minutes. Cut into 6 wedges and serve warm. Serves 6
