Apple Pizza Recipe

Apple Pizza will be your favorite fall dessert of the season. The sweet apples, crunchy nuts, and buttery caramel are amazing!

There are many things that signify the arrival of fall: chilly nights, football, Pumpkin Oreo Dessert, and this apple dessert pizza. Whenever mom made it, I knew fall had officially arrived. Now I live in a climate where we don’t get a traditional autumn, but with this bread I can imagine the leaves are turning brilliant shades of ocher.

Mom called this dessert Apple Delight, but it’s a lot like a dessert pizza. But not your average apple dessert pizza! Yes it has apples and is drizzled with caramel, but the cream cheese “sauce” is more tangy than sweet, which gives it great balance.

The most distinguishing characteristic, however, is the biscuit crust. Cookie crusts are too sweet in my book. Plus, you can’t pull them apart like this dessert! With this version, everyone can grab a piece and enjoy the fun.

I love it fresh from the oven when it’s still warm and slightly gooey with the caramel dripping over the crunchy nuts. I also love it chilled the next morning for breakfast (if I’m not eating Apple Scones). It makes a terrific snack bread for any time of the day. The recipe also doubles easily, which I highly recommend if serving to guests!

This dessert is so quick and easy to throw together. It’s flexible because you can use whatever type of apples and nuts you have on hand. Granny Smith apples are my favorite, but I usually go for whichever variety is currently being harvested locally.

Apples pair so well with nuts! Peanuts, walnuts and pecans are classic choices, but I love the crunch of almond best, so that’s what I chose. They can even be made nut-free for those with allergies.

Just open a can of biscuits and place them in a single layer, touching on the sides. Flatten into a thin layer with your fingers and bake. Then top with cream cheese, diced apples and nuts. Top it all off with a drizzle of caramel and enjoy!
