What joy the gospel gives me. I can approach the throne of God with confidence, not because I've done a good job at my spiritual duties, but because I'm clothed in the righteousness of Jesus Christ. ~ C.J. Mahaney

Dessert Pizza

"Dessert Pizza?  Is that all?  Just Dessert Pizza?  Not 'Appley, Cinnamony, Nutty Awesomeness'?"  Lacy asked as she read my post title.

She's right, too.  A name like "Dessert Pizza" is really lacking.  But we're not going to wrangle over the name.  Just take Lacy's word on this, OK?

Pizza night at our house goes like this...  I make a big ol' batch of dough and divide it into four parts.  I use this recipe.

I put meat and cheese on a couple, and make a vegetarian pizza for the third, then make this dessert pizza for the last one.

Here's how to do it.

 Roll out the dough.

Melt the butter in a bowl.

Measure out a heaping helping of brown sugar.

Add some flour.

Chop some nuts and grab a big, tart apple.

Peel and chop that baby.

The butter/sugar goes on first.  Then, load up with the nuts and apples
and sprinkle liberally with cinnamon.

Bake at 400 degrees till done.
Mmmmmm.  Mmmmmm.  Mmmmmmm.

Laura Lee's Dessert Pizza
  • pizza dough for one pizza
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2- 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • about 1/4 cup flour
  • one tart apple, peeled and chopped
  • about 1/3 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
  • cinnamon to taste
Roll dough to sides of pan or edges of baking stone.  Build up edges slightly.  Mix melted butter with brown sugar and flour.  Spread over dough, almost to edges.   Sprinkle dough with apple, nuts, and cinnamon.  Bake at 400 degrees for about 16 minutes or till top is bubbly and edges of crust are golden brown.

Have a beautiful Lord's Day tomorrow!
