Caramel Apple Pizza

funsweets

Now that Labor Day 2012 in is our rear-view mirror, do you feel like fall yet?

I am pretty much ready to break out my sweatshirts and boots and hunker down.

Soup, Pot Roast, Apple Pie…I’m ready.

 

The thing with fall, though, is that it leads to winter.

Would it be wrong to want 9 months of fall and 3 months of summer?

 

But with fall comes fall television.  I am counting the minutes until I see Damon again.  And what’s gonna happen on Greys?  Poor Lexie…

Plus my kids go back to school on Wednesday.  I feel like the worst mother ever because I am SO ready.  Not ready for homework…gag, but ready for productivity during the daytime hours to commence.

And really, I’m just ready to wear my boots.

It all comes back to footwear, doesn’t it?

 

So how you feeling about Caramel Apple Week so far?  Our first round was a winner, for sure…you saw this and this, right?

Well, how about  Caramel Apple Pizza?

I know, right?

This whole thing is kinda..eek…semi-homemade.

I know, I know.

But you can totally do every step from scratch if you’re an overachiever.

In my case, I was about oven-to-face in the fastest amount of time.  Story of my life.

 

Grab a roll of sugar cookie dough and press it into a greased pizza pan…about 12″ in diameter…

Photobucket Bake it until you have one giant happy cookie…or about 17 minutes.

Meanwhile mix up some cream cheese and brown sugar.  Could there be a better combination?

And when your giant cookie is cooked and cooled, give it a good slather with that cream cheesiness.

Photobucket Then pop open a can of Apple Pie filling.  Here’s my favorite, because there’s no high fructose corn syrup.

Spread it all over the cream cheese mixture.

Photobucket Then drizzle some caramel on top.  I used about 1/4 cup.

Photobucket

And then because I was feeling fancy I decided to melt some white chocolate and give it some flair.

Photobucket

Then I ate.

And ate.

Now I hear that there might be some cute Caramel Apple Cake Pops over at Confessions of a Cookbook Queen today.  I could be wrong, though..you should go check.

Normally I’m a weird pizza eater (ripping off and eating all the toppings first, then the crust) but this is a slice I can get behind eating normally. Or as normal as eating a delicious caramel apple pizza can be. And yay for you; embrace the lazy days with boots!

The “pizza sauce” sounds great! This is a nice recipe for busy back to school time. It doesn’t feel like fall yet (I’m wearing a white skirt today!), but I am ready for it.

I love, love, love you ladies for the Caramel Apple week theme!!! (I burn “Harvest” scented Yankee candles all year long – no need to wait for fall!)
This pizza looks so awesome, but I must ask if you have any suggestions for substitutions on the cream cheese mixture? I hate to say this, but my stupid stomach refuses cream cheese.

Guest

Guest
