Apple Everything Pizza

  Granny Smith Apples were on sale last week, so naturally I HAD to get a bag.  Surely I could come up with something tasty!  In the end, I took several recipes, some ideas of my own, and came up with this dessert pizza Tuesday night.  It’s a little bit Caramel Apple, a little bit Apple Crisp, a little bit Apple Cider, a whole lotta good!  :)

  The Fruit Pizza crust comes from my mom’s recipe box, the crumble topping idea comes from Holly at Life As A Lofthouse, and the original pizza I was going to make before I thought of the apple cider cream cheese part, was from Pampered Chef.

FOR THE APPLE CIDER CREAM CHEESE LAYER: Mix softened cream cheese with cider powder, cinnamon and sugar until smooth. Spread on cooled crust.

TOPPINGS:
Peel, core and slice apples and place on cream cheese layer. {sprinkle with Fruit Fresh to keep from browning} With a fork, blend together, butter, flour, cinnamon, brown sugar and quick oats. Sprinkle on top of apples.

Broil for 2 minutes or until topping is golden brown.  Let cool 15 minutes before placing pizza in the fridge for at least 2 hours.

Drizzle pizza with caramel ice cream topping before cutting and serving.

MMMMM!

  You could probably eat it out of the oven, and we tried it that way, but I gotta say, its SO worth waiting for it to get cold. The cream cheese and apple flavors really pop then!  Voted best cold by all 4 little Fergusons AND their mommy and daddy! :)
