Caramel Apple Pizza

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, 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…

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.

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.

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

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

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, should go check.

  1. Averie @ Averie Cooks

    Now this is my idea of a pizza! I love caramel and with white choc and cream cheese, it looks fabulous!

  2. Cookbook Queen

    Apple pie pizza is one of my all time favorite things.

    And I love that you added flair. Can never had enough flair!!

  3. My kids went back to school a few weeks ago, and I have been ready for Fall to arrive ever since then!!! 9 months of Fall and 3 months of Summer is exactly how I want my year to be:-) This easy apple pie is killing me with its deliciousness!!! I love that it can be in my belly in no time at all!!!

  4. Cookie Sleuth

    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.

  5. Hayley @ The Domestic Rebel

    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!

  6. Lauren at Keep It Sweet

    I’m actually afraid to watch the season premiere of Grey’s… I just keep hoping it was all a dream. Love this pizza:-)

  7. Colleen @ What's Baking in the Barbershop?!

    Honestly, this pizza looks out-of-control delicious. A perfect dessert to welcome fall!
