Caramel Apple Dessert Pizza. Until you make this, you can only imagine how delicious it is!
Can I just say that I love Rhodes frozen dough? I can make anything with it! This is my latest creation - Caramel Apple Dessert Pizza. Until you make this, you can only imagine how delicious it is! The Rhodes bread dough is so perfect for a pizza crust and it takes no effort to make. I just thaw out a loaf of the frozen Rhodes dough on my countertop.
Roll it out into a circle and place it on a 14" pizza pan. Whenever I am making pizza dough, I like to "dock" the dough before baking it. (Just poke it all over with the tines of a fork.) This prevents big bubbles from forming as it bakes. Partially bake the dough for 6 - 7 minutes at 425°. While the crust is in the oven, prepare the crumble topping (Recipe is below.)
Remove from the oven and top with the Caramel Apple Pie Filling, then spread the crumble topping evenly over the pie filling.
Bake for an additional 7 minutes or until the edges are starting to turn golden brown. Remove from oven and turn your oven up to the broil setting and return the pizza to the oven under the broiler for about 1 minute. Watch it closely so it doesn't burn. (This extra step will help the crumble topping get nice and crispy!) Remove the pizza from the broiler and set the pan on a wire rack to cool slightly for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the icing (Recipe is below.)
Drizzle the pizza with the icing. I think it's best when served warm and crispy.

Caramel Apple Dessert Pizza
1 loaf Rhodes Bread Dough, thawed
1 can Caramel Apple Pie Filling (or use regular apple pie filling)
1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup rolled oats
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup softened butter
Measure the dry ingredients into a small bowl and using a pastry cutter, cut in the butter until the mixture is crumbly. Set aside.
After the pizza crust has been partially baked for 6 minutes, spoon the pie filling over the top, followed by the crumble topping.
Bake an additional 7 minutes. Turn the oven up to broil and broil for about 1 minute and broil the pizza just to get the crumble topping crispy. Watch closely so it doesn’t burn.
Remove from oven and set the pan on a wire rack. Allow to cool about 10 minutes while you are preparing the icing.
2 teaspoons butter, softened
3/4 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons milk (or more, if needed)
½ t. vanilla
Whisk together the butter and a small amount of powdered sugar to form a paste. Add milk and vanilla. Whisk in additional powdered sugar or more milk if needed, just until it is a nice consistency to drizzle.
Cut into wedges and serve while still warm.
