Apple Crisp Pizza
This Apple Crisp Pizza dessert recipe is a little slice of heaven. Cinnamon sugared apples piled on top of a flaky pie crust and drizzled with caramel sauce, this pizza is so good!
APPLE CRISP PIZZA
My husband’s favorite dessert is a warm apple crisp with a huge scoop of vanilla ice cream. A couple of year ago we crowned this the Perfect Apple Crisp recipe at least according to my husband’s standards.
But I think his favorite apple crisp has some competition from this Apple Crisp Pizza. If you throw a flaky pie crust into any equation, it’s gotta be good. And it was.

Apple Crisp Pizza
- (9 inch) homemade pie crust, (or store bought)
- 2/3 cup white sugar
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 4 cups peeled and diced apples, (like Gala, Fiji, Braeburn, Empire diced into 1/4 inch pieces - around 4 apples)
- 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
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Roll pie crust to fit a 12 inch pizza pan; fold under edges to give the pizza a bit of a raised 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. I like to use my clean hands to get in there and mush it together until it's the texture of wet sand. 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. Makes 12 servings.
What up with not being able to pin recipes from Food Network? I can go through the steps to save but nothing saves. ☹️
This isn’t from food network so I’m not sure what you’re referring to.
My father and grandmother had a decades long pie crust rivalry. Gramma made her crust and Dad thought he could improve on it. When he did, Gramma would try new methods and secret ingredients, and then Dad set off to make an even better crust.
Many years into this competition I made a pear and plum galette with the Deluxe Butter Flaky Pastry Dough from the 1997 Joy of Cooking recipe. Dad ate silently but for the occasional happy noise of foodie pleasure then announced the verdict. It was the best pie crust he’d ever eaten and he wanted the recipe to “beat the socks off your Gramma and claim the crown and title of Best Pie Crust Maker of Ever”. And he did. Then I told Gramma how he got the recipe. Now I hold the title and the crown. 😀
Ooh making a note of this for sure!!
My family is not big on oats. Can I just leave them out? Thanks.
Yeah it is kind of the main part of the crumble but you can leave it out.
I love eating apples that are so crisp the juice pops in your eye. When they start getting a tad soft I want to try something new. Apple pizza!
I just dehydrated some grapes and threw them into the mixture.
I didn’t need to add the glaze. It was perfect just as it was….except a scoop of ice cream. 😉
I have an awesome pie crust recipe. Makes about 16 at one time. Best crust ever. If you want it email me. Put apple pizza in the subject line. So I will know.
OOh I’ll have to email you.
Hi, my email is [email protected]
I see so many options here. Cherry, berries, strawberry rhubarb. Even throw in some cheese cake idea’s.
Yes! All great ideas!
This looks so gd I cant wait to try it with my fam. Thanks fr posting…
You are welcome!
I cant wait to make this! It reminds me of 1 of 2 dessert pizzas that Pizza Hut used to offer with their lunch buffet when i was a kid in the 90s. Only difference is they used a royal icing drizzled over….plus I’m sure this is actually much better since its homemade!
Thanks! Good luck!
This recipe is VERY dangerous. I made it and my boyfriend and I finished it with in two hours….
I agree. So dangerous!
I’m considering try this tomorrow. Just wondering if the crust is floppy when serving?
It’s not super stiff.
Think this would work on a jelly roll pan if you doubled everything?
I don’t see why not!
This is a new favorite at our house. Thanks for a great recipe!
I made this for a family pitch in this weekend. It was a HIT! Out of the numerous desserts to pick from, my tray only had one tiny piece. I loved how easy it was to whip this up with only a few ingredients.
It will be a new go-to for quick dessert! Thanks!!!
Glad you loved it!
Never thought of before. I’m curious, how does this apple pizza taste?
This would also be delicious with some salted-caramel ice cream. Yummy!!!
Amazing! Love it! Crust was not too thick and taste sweetly good.
Glad you loved it!
I made this! It is so so good!
So glad you liked it!
this pizza is sooo good!!!! took it to work and went home with an empty dish… and so easy to make..

I just made this recipe and OMG it was sooooooo good. I used the crust recipe that Melinda shared and doubled it, which worked out perfectly for a 12″ pizza pan. I also used 5 apples, 3 were Granny Smith and 2 were Gala apples. I doubled the crumb topping as well. This turned out fantastic!!! 5 Stars
Double the crust? I like how you think.
How about a perfect almond cake

I have wanted to make this dessert for a while and did so today. It was easy to make and is absolutely delicious! This is a great dessert for company and everyone in my family loved it. Thanks for such a great recipe!!
I just wanted to say thank you for this recipe! It is so delicious. I made it this weekend for my family, and we all loved it. I know I will be making it again and again. Your pictures are just gorgeous, too! That was what made me want to make it in the first place. Thanks, again!
Thank you. You’re so sweet.
I’m a lazy heifer.. So instead of cutting up the apples and adding the other stuff, I just used canned pie filling. You can any flavor you want, then add the crumb on top.
I’m with ya girl. Glad to know it works.
My son and my husband loved this – I did too – I will make it again. Thanks for this recipe!
Could you use frozen apples??!
I’ve never tried but I’m sure you can.
the only recipe i use for pie crust is: in a pie pan 1 c flour, sprinkle a little salt, 1/3 cup of oil and add milk to 1/2 cup. mix in pie pan with fork and pat out into the shape of pie pan. bake as usual. wonderful. a recipe i shared at tupperware parties for many years. we even made it at parties. always works.
I wonder how this would be with phyllo dough? Can’t wait to try!
I have a pie crust recipe, that my whole family uses.
Its called “never fail pie crust”. It works, I can even do it!
E-mail me for it if your interested.
This reminds me of a dessert pizza I used to eat when I was a kid. It looks absolutely delicious, and I am going to have to make this ASAP!
P. S. I’m not going to judge you for using store-bought pie crust. It saves so much time!
So, I was thinking of making this with a sugar cookie dough (cooked, of course) rather than a pie crust…
I think that sounds fabulous.
I have your perfect flaky honest to goodness no fail pie crust:
It sounds totally ridiculous but it totally WORKS! You can’t over work it. It stays flaky no matter what. To top that it makes enough for three 9 or 10 inch pies and you can freeze it for up to a year. easy-peasy……….
4 C all purpose flour
1 tsp salt
2 Cups butter flavor shortening. DON’T USE BUTTER
1 C lemon lime soda or ginger ale. Use beer if you are making a quiche or meat pie.
mix salt with flour.
cut in the shortening until large pea or marble size clumps for.
Add liquid and stir in quickly, them let rest for about 20 minutes in the refrigerator. The dough will firm up and be workable. divide int three equal sized disks. Store the ones you are not immediately using in the refrigerator or freezer.
Generously flour the work surface and top side of dough when rolling.
I got this recipe from an old friend about fifteen years ago and it’s my favorite. I’ve tried many others and I always go back to it. Every time I give the recipe and directions to someone who says they can’t make pie crust they come up with a winner. I hope you try it and enjoy it as much as I have.
Do you use any butter or lard for you crust. If so how much? Thanks
I used a store bought crust. I know. That’s awful! I stink at pie crusts.
This sounds delicious! I am putting this into my recipe file, and I plan to share this on Celebrate and Decorate on Monday. visitors will have to click over to your blog. I hope that helps more people discover your wonderful blog!
This looks great I have to make this for my husband
