Apple Pizza: A Doozie of a Desserrt

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)



If your daily life seems poor, do not blame it;

blame yourself that you are not poet enough

  1. Oh Christy I was so in to talking about memories I forgot to tell you I am so happy you are doing better and have the inner strength that you do thanks to your faith and all the prayers. Also please forgive all the mistakes I made in my first post I was having a DUHHHHHHH………. Day! I bought your magazine is it going to be one we can subscribe to or is it just a special edition. I would love for it to be monthly I read it from cover to cover the first day I got it. YEP you are so right family didn’t get much out of me that day I couldn’t lay it down until I was finished and still had to go back and take a few extra peeks.

  2. Oh Christy I totally understand about budget as I have a 17 year old going to a private school on a scholarship. I am so blessed she is there but due to the fact she drives 500 miles a week I too have to cut corners as I am disabled. Talk about how you were raised I too was poor in money but oh my GOSH so RICH in LOVE! We were at the church every time the doors were open and on Sunday we had dinner on the grounds. What a great life it was. Daddy was a deacon. We didn’t act up in church or momma would take us outside whip our hiney and we would come back in set down on the pew sniffing and snibbling and everyone in the church knew we just got a whipping. We deserved it though. I have thought many times about cranking the old apple peeler when all the women in the neighborhood got together to make apple butter in a huge black iron kettle over a wood fire outside and we would stir that big old pot all day with a wooden paddle that had a long handle and so us kids would get burned stirring. Boy we couldn’t wait until it was done just hoping that there wasn’t enough to fill all the jars so we could have some with home churned butter on a cold biscuit left over from the breakfast we had shared before starting the days events. I was raised in West Virginia but before people say I am a Yankie no I’m not West Virginia fought for the south it was Virginia that fought for the north. LOL! I have so many beautiful memories of my childhood pinto beans cooking on a pot belly stove and momma would make dumplins’ in them to stretch the beans to feed us all but talk about yummy they were so good with fresh green onions from the garden and if we were really lucky daddy made us some what we called poor mans gravy (milk, flour, bacon grease, salt and pepper) with chunks of fried bologna in it. Those were the days!!! I know this is so long but just so many wonderful memories. I always say my memories are my mind movies. I truly feel that even if for some reason God feels fit that we can no longer communicate that are mind movies will be buried inside of us even if we are the only one viewing them they are there and still beautiful.

  3. Christy I love your recipes and site. I do have a question though. I have noticed you just about always use margarine. Most Southerners use butter. I know I do and it a matter of preference. My doctor once told me that in order to say season some corn it takes lees butter to get a good flavor than it does margarine so therefore the pat of butter is easier on your veins than the half stick of margarine. Like I said I know it’s to each his own it just surprises me a Southern cook mostly using margarine. Still love your recipes and site. Hope you are up and walking soon. Such a blessing you were not hurt worse on such a bad accident.

    1. Hey Marsha, great to hear from you! It’s a financial thing. Butter is three times (or more) the price of margarine and all my family could afford growing up. I’m grateful we had it. If I have a bigger budget sometimes I get butter. If its a tighter week, margarine :). I’m blessed to be able to choose when I do. So many families are faced with needing the extra three dollars to try to keep hunger at bay. I guess that’s always close to my heart due to personal experience. So when you think of me as a Southerner, it might help you to understand me if you consider my people weren’t the big house southerners, they were the ones in the field. 🙂

  4. I made this for my boyfriend today… SOOO good. Better than making an apple pie in my opinion. It’s worth it to make your own glaze and not buy the pre-made glaze from the store!

  5. Hey Christy – I’m a Northerner transplanted to South Carolina and I’m glad I found your site! This Apple Doozie sounds like something I will definitely be making when it finally cools off here.
    Had to laugh over your comment about the local antique store – I feel the same way whenever I venture into one! I enjoy the stories that accompany your recipes – every recipe has a story, after all.
