Apple pie dessert pizza features a thin pizza crust, topped with apple pie filling, a brown sugar and oats streusel topping, drizzled with cinnamon icing.

My husband and I recently had homemade pizza for dinner.  I made enough homemade pizza dough for two crusts (using this recipe), but we ended up only making ONE pizza. That meant I had leftover pizza dough.

I wrapped the extra dough ball VERY TIGHTLY in plastic wrap (multiple times), to stop the dough from continuing to rise. The dough was then refrigerated overnight.

The next day I had this BULGING ball of plastic wrapped pizza dough in my refrigerator begging for mercy! I’m not kidding! It looked like it would POP if poked with a pin… ha ha.

THAT is how I came up with this idea to use the pizza dough to make an apple pie dessert pizza. Someone had to do it, BEFORE that silly dough ball exploded!

I knew I also had some home canned apple pie filling in our pantry, so I put my thinking cap on, and came up with this delicious apple treat!

The GOOD NEWS is that you can use  store bought pizza dough and a small can of apple pie filling! This will save you lots of time, if you don’t want to make the dough yourself.  The recipe itself is super easy to make, and tastes GREAT! Here’s how to make this dessert:

Make The Streusel Topping For The Apple Pie Dessert Pizza

The first thing to do is to make the streusel topping that will be used to top the apple pie dessert pizza.

Place cold butter, all purpose flour, quick cooking oats and brown sugar in a medium sized bowl.  Use a pastry blender or two forks to cut the butter into the rest of the ingredients.

When done, the butter should be about the size of peas. Set the streusel topping aside until ready to use.

How To Make The Apple Pie Dessert Pizza

Place the prepared pizza dough (enough for a single pizza) onto a lightly floured work surface. Roll the pizza dough out into a 12″ circle.

Fold the dough over in half, and place it onto a pizza stone, pizza pan or a large baking sheet. Unfold the dough. Evenly spread the apple pie filling over the dough, leaving about an inch border around the edges bare.

Evenly distribute the streusel topping over the apple pie dessert pizza. You will want to cover all the fruit filling, but still try to leave the border edge slightly bare.

Cooking The Apple Pie Dessert Pizza

Place the apple pie dessert pizza into a preheated 400°F oven. Bake it on the middle rack for approximately 20 minutes. Oven temps vary quite a bit, so check it at about 18 minutes.

When done, the streusel topping should be golden brown, the filling will be bubbly, and the bottom crust will be golden brown, as well.

Transfer the apple pie dessert pizza to a wire rack or cutting board to cool completely. NOTE: Do not drizzle with the vanilla icing until the dessert pizza has completely cooled.

While the apple pie dessert pizza is cooling, you can make the simple vanilla icing. The icing will be drizzled over the dessert pizza, once cooled completely.

The icing is made by mixing together powdered sugar, apple juice (or water), cinnamon and vanilla until mixture is smooth.

Once ready (and the pizza is completely cooled), drizzle the icing in any kind of pattern over the top of the pizza.

There really no rhyme or reason to this… just drizzle all the icing over the top. You can’t hurt it! Let the icing harden before slicing and serving the apple pie dessert pizza!

Cinnamon icing is made, then drizzled onto the apple pie dessert pizza.

Once the icing has firmed up, it’s time to slice this apple pie dessert pizza! I used a standard pizza cutter to slice the dessert into 12 slices.
