Only it comes fully equipped with a crust that makes it look just like a pizza.

The perks of dessert pizza over traditional apple crisp

The biggest perk is perhaps the least obvious, as the fad for creating foods that look like other foods has taken off, some question whether or not the additional steps are worth the outcome, it all appears to be little more than a visually appealing show that works for entertaining. Still, the truth is that the effort is more than worth it because, with dessert pizza, you’ll never need a fork or even serving plates again, as the flaky crust holds it all together in one clean easy to handle slice.

Pie ingredients

  • 1 pie crust
  • 4 large apples (peeled and sliced)
  • 2/3 cups brown sugar (packed)
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.

  2. Roll the pie crust out flat until it fits the pizza pan perfectly.

  4. Add the pie ingredients to a large mixing bowl, and then stir them together
    until all of the apple slices are thoroughly coated in sugar and cinnamon.

  5. Spread the apples out in the middle of the crust in one single layer, squeezing as many as you can onto the platform without overlapping the folded edges.

  6. Add all of the topping ingredients except for the drizzle to a medium mixing bowl, and mix them all until they form a crumbly texture.

  7. Sprinkle the crisp apple topping evenly over top of the fruit layer.

  8. Bake the dessert pizza in the oven for 35-40 minutes, or until the apples are soft and the crust is a nice golden brown.

  9. Drizzle the crisp apple pizza with the caramel sauce, and then it’s ready for you to enjoy!


Once you’ve completed this dessert recipe, you’ll need to leave it to rest for long enough to cool before storing it in an airtight container in the fridge. As long as it’s stored promptly and appropriately, you’ll be able to enjoy your homemade edibles for up to five days after making a batch. If you want them to last even longer, there’s always the option of freezing them, but then you’ll need to defrost each one when a craving hits, so it’s entirely up to you which one you choose.
