Still alive & New recipe

Well I haven't fallen off the face of the earth but we are insanely busy. I had surgery at the beginning of July so I was laid up for 8 weeks and trying to be a Mom didn't leave much time for anything else. I haven't done a meal plan yet but will get back onto that as my business have picked up so much that I don't have time for much!

Anyhoooo we have an apple tree that grows super big apples and that has been my focus for the last 2 weeks. Apple Pie Jam, Apple Butter and Dutch apple pies. Well tonight we made....

Apple Pizza - Lynn's Kitchen Adventures

  • 1 pie crust, unbaked single pie crust ( I use my gluten free pie crust recipe)
  • 5 cups sliced peeled apples, tart baking apples work best
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
Cheese Topping
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup caramel ice cream topping
  1. Roll pie crust out onto a 12 inch pizza pan. This will be thinner than a pie crust would be. If you do not have a pizza pan you could do this free form on a cookie sheet.
  2. In a bowl mix together cheese topping mixture and spread on pie crust.
  3. In a separate pan combine  apples, butter, sugar and cinnamon. Cook over medium low heat for 3-5 minutes or until apples are tender.
  4. Spread apples over cream cheese layer. If your apples have a lot of liquid/sauce do not place all of the liquid /sauce on the pizza or you will have a mess in your oven. Ask me how I know. :-) Apples vary on how much juice they have, but you do not want so much liquid that it runs all over the place. I left a few tablespoon of liquid in the pan last time I made it. (You may want to set a second pan on the rack below this in the oven to catch the drips, in case it does go over. That will help avoid a messy oven.)
  5. Bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes.
  6. Cool slightly and serve.
Try it the my whole family loved it!
