How to Make Apple Pizza 

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.

Ingredients For Apple Pizza Dessert

You’re gonna need:

  • Pizza crust,
  • Apple pie filling,
  • Cinnamon,
  • Quick oats,
  • Flour,
  • Brown sugar,
  • Butter

For the glaze on top you’ll also need

  • Confectioner’s sugar,
  • milk, and
  • vanilla.

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 eatin!

*Tips for using fresh apples after the recipe card below.

  • First off, open that can of pie filling.
  • You’ll notice most of the apples are in slices in there so we want to dice them up a bit so they’ll spread better.

  • What I do is take a long bladed knife and stick it down in the center, then pull it to the side.
  • Repeat this over and over and you dice up the apples in the can with no mess.

  • 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, place brown sugar, cinnamon, flour, and oats.

  • Stir to combine.

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

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

  • So you can cut the butter in until it looks like this or you can just cut it in until you get tired of fooling with it. Pizza will still be good. ~shrugs~ I’m easy to please.

  • Take that topping and sprinkle it all over your apple pizza pie filling and crust.

This bowl I’m using is a Pyrex one in a pattern called “Gooseberry Pink”. The style of bowl is called “Cinderella”. Cinderella bowls had two handles on them , one slightly larger than the other, and they were raised on the sides so that the handles could be used as pouring spouts. If you scroll up and look at the top view photos of the bowl you’ll see what I mean.

Ok, back to the recipe…

  • Here is our apple pizza all ready to bake

  • Place it in a 350 degree oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until lightly browned.

Making the Glaze

  • 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 that up good and add your vanilla

  • Stir again

  • Use your spoon to drizzle the icing over the top.

Here’s your slice. Can’t you just taste the wonderful flavors?

Let pizza cool for about five minutes or so before eating

(just enough so you don’t burn the tar out of your mouth when you take a bite)

  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.
