This is an apple pizza recipe I whipped up because I LOVE the apple dessert pizzas that all of the pizza chains have. I got to thinking that it would have to be a quick and easy recipe for them to make them on such a large scale. After taking a few minutes to wrap my head around it and dream up the ingredients, I went shopping and made a Southern Plate version of Apple Pizza Dessert.

What You’ll Need to Make Apple Pizza Dessert

  • Apple pie filling

  • Quick oats
  • Flour
  • Brown sugar

Most pizza crusts I buy come in two packs so this is a great time to mosey on over and make Taco Pizza first, then serve this for dessert! Good eats!

How to Make Apple Pizza Dessert

cut up apple pie filling

First, open your can of pie filling. You’ll notice that most of the apples are in slices, so we want to dice them up a bit so they’ll spread better. I use my kitchen shears and just cut them up until they are sufficiently diced!

cover pizza crust with apple pie filling

Now take out one of those pizza crusts and put it on a baking sheet. Spread the pie filling over the top of the crust.

in a small bowl, put dry ingredients

In a small bowl, place brown sugar, cinnamon, flour, and oats. Stir to combine.

stir to combine and add butter

Cut up 1/2 stick of margarine (or butter) and place in the bowl.

butter mixed in

Using a long tined fork, cut the butter into the dry mixture until it looks like this.

sprinkle topping all over apple pie filling

Take that topping and sprinkle it all over your apple pizza pie filling and crust. Your apple pie pizza is ready to bake! Place it in a 350 degree oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until lightly browned.

While the apple pie pizza is baking, let’s make the glaze!

confectioner's sugar in a small bowl

To make our glaze, place one cup of confectioner’s sugar in a bowl and add about two tablespoons of milk. You can add more if you need to but start with this, you’ll be surprised at how far it goes once you start stirring.

stir glaze and add vanilla

Stir that up well, then add the vanilla. Stir again until mixed.

use a spoon to drizzle glaze on top of the baked apple pie pizza

Once your apple pie pizza is baked, use a spoon to drizzle the icing over the top of the pie. Let it cool for about 5 minutes before serving.

  1. This was posted way back in 2010 but it is still going strong! I just came across it today and added it to my cook book. I am all about quick and easy desserts when the kids all come piling in.

  2. We had the apple doozie last night. We really liked it warm out of the oven but not so much an hour or so later. The filling was delicious but the pizza crust got hard and way too chewy. I was going to throw it out this morning but tried a little piece, the filling has soaked into the crust overnight and softened it considerably so we can finish it off today. I think I’ll try this again using maybe a crescent dough crust.

    1. I made this also and had the same issue as the person above (comment) about the pizza crust being hard and chewy, now, I did not use this recipe but it was exactly the same as this one, if anyone has any suggestions as to how to use some kind of pizza crust and it NOT turn out like that, please post on here. I know this is a older post, I just found it researching other recipes and came across this one. thanks!

  3. Christy, I just found your site a couple of weeks ago but I have already saved sooo many recipes to my files. I just purchased your book in the kindle edition for my iPad and I also preordered the new casserole one coming in October! I am not a southern gal but I just love all your quotes and memories you share here. I am clear up here in Washington…the state, not the snake pit! Prayers, love and blessings for your continued healing and thank you for your wonderful posts.
