Apple Cinnamon Dessert Pizza



This was good.....Man, oh man, oh man, oh man....this was good. Like an apple pie, but lighter and a little fresher tasting. I had a few apples in the fridge that I needed to get rid of before our vacation and what do ya know these were magic apples....because they talked to me. They said "We want to be turned into a dessert pizza", and of course I obliged. Because when apples talk to you you never know what else they may be able to do like shoot you with laser guided missiles while you sleep.....next logical step don't ya know. So I figured I should do what they say.

Once the apples informed me of their wishes I looked around the kitchen to see what else might work with this dish...I found no other talking ingredients, but I did find some cream cheese and butter that needed to be used. It was like an episode of Chopped, but better....because on chopped they make you wear pants....and it was hot....so I was wearing my p.j.s...which are much more comfortable than real pants. Also there was no headcheese or cream of mushroom soup, or other random ingredient that I had to work with.....so really, no, not like chopped at all.

I mixed together one block of cream cheese with about a tbs of melted butter, 1/2 cup of sugar, and 1 tsp cinnamon. Oh and about a teaspoon of vanilla extract and a teaspoon of lemon juice....that was the pizza "sauce". I spread it onto my sourdough pizza crust that had already spent about ten minutes in the oven.

I added sliced apples that had been tossed with lemon juice and a pinch of salt and made it all pretty like...






Then I melted another tbs of butter and stirred in 1/2 cup sugar, 1 tsp cinnamon, 2tsp flour, and sprinkled the mixture all over the top of the pizza.

If anyone is interested in more precise directions let me know and I will get to work on typing those out. I just thought I would throw this out there before I left because it was soooooooooooo dang good! Excellent with coffee.
