Apple Streusel Pizza & dessert challenge

It’s time for another Lady Behind the Curtain Dessert Challenge, and this month is apples and cinnamon.  Ahhh, the possibilities…..

I decided to go with an Apple Streusel Pizza…yes, yes, I know…you are thoroughly shocked!  I created another type of pizza…..

At this point, I think anything that is flat with toppings and baked…is called a pizza!  What do you think?

I knew almost immediately what I wanted to make, I just wasn’t sure how I wanted to put it all together.  I finally decided on the delicious and easy frozen puff pastry as the base.  Then for the topping, I decided to use my Apple Crisp recipe hoping it would turn out the way I imagined it in my head.  It turned out even better than I had hoped.  Cassi gobbled this pizza down!!  In fact, we were practically fighting over it… was that good!

I wanted it to have a little something extra, so I created a simple vanilla glaze to drizzle over the top.  That is what took this dessert from an apple crisp to a fantastic apple dessert worthy of a dessert challenge.  Did I mention how easy it was to make?  So simple!  The hardest part was waiting for it to cool down enough to try it. 🙂

    Wow…I’m mostly a chocolate girl myself, but I’m a dang sucker for a good apple recipe too! I have a fab praline taffy apple pie recipe that I’ll be sharing sometime this fall. My husband rescued it from an OLD Country Living mag I had from over 20 years ago! But it’s still my go-to apple pie recipe. But hey…this looks amazing…anything with puff pastry and I’m THERE!!!
