Pizza doesn’t always have to be savory. But overly sweet pizzas with cookie or pastry crusts can be a bit cloying. Avoid that problem by pairing a regular, unsweetened pizza crust with a dessert topping. In this case, apples are cooked in a bit of butter, brown sugar and cinnamon, then arranged on the crust, topped with dulce de leche and almonds then baked. The result is a dessert pizza that’s sophisticated enough to feed grown-ups, but kids will love it too. Try it hot from the oven with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. This recipe works well with the Whole Wheat Pizza Crust if you use only all-purpose flour (you will need half the dough).
|Dough for a 12-inch pizza crust||1 teaspoon cinnamon|
|3 tablespoons butter||1/2 cup jarred dulce de leche|
|2 tart apples (such as Granny Smith), peeled, cored and sliced thin||1/4 cup sliced almonds|
|3 tablespoons brown sugar||Confectioners' sugar|
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Gently stretch the pizza crust to a 12-inch disk on a buttered rimless baking sheet.
In a skillet, melt the butter over medium heat and sauté the apples just until they start to soften, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle on the sugar and cinnamon and cook until the apples are tender and browned, about 5 to 7 minutes more.
Spread the apples evenly over the crust. Drizzle with the dulce de leche and sprinkle with the almonds. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until the dulce de leche is bubbling and the crust is browned.
Sift some confectioners’ sugar over the top and serve right away.
