This Apple Crisp Pizza dessert recipe is a little slice of heaven. Cinnamon sugared apples piled on top of a flaky pie crust and drizzled with caramel sauce, this pizza is so good!


My husband’s favorite dessert is a warm apple crisp with a huge scoop of vanilla ice cream. A couple of year ago we crowned this thePerfect Apple Crisprecipe at least according to my husband’s standards.

But I think his favorite apple crisp has some competition from this Apple Crisp Pizza. If you throw a flaky pie crust into any equation, it’s gotta be good. And it was.

No one will judge you for using a store bought pie crust for this dessert. But if you’re looking for an easy homemade pie crust, I’ve got you too.

Look how gorgeous the apple crisp pizza is with the caramel drizzled on top. And it’s heaven when eaten warm with some vanilla ice cream.

Start by combining someapples with a little sugar and some cinnamon.

Place the apples in the pie crust.

My favorite part about any apple crisp is the crisp part and this has a generous helping of crisp on top.

Sprinkle it over your diced apples and you’re ready to bake.

Once it’s done baking drizzle some caramel on top.

Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

This Apple Crisp Pizza recipe is a little slice of heaven. Cinnamon sugared apples piled on top of a flaky pie crust and drizzled with caramel sauce, this Apple Crisp Pizza is so good!


Prep Time: 10 minutes mins

Cook Time: 30 minutes mins

Total Time: 40 minutes mins

Servings: 12 servings


  • (9 inch) homemade pie crust, (or store bought)
  • 2/3 cup white sugar
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 cups peeled and diced apples, (like Gala, Fiji, Braeburn, Empire diced into 1/4 inch pieces - around 4 apples)


  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup salted butter, softened (see Note)


  • 1/2 cup caramel topping


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  • Roll pie crust to fit a 12 inch pizza pan; fold under edges to give the pizza a bit of a raised crust. Combine sugar, flour and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Add peeled, diced apples and toss. Arrange the apples in a single layer over the pie crust to completely cover it.

  • For the topping: Combine the flour, brown sugar, oats, cinnamon, and butter in a bowl. Mix well. I like to use my clean hands to get in there and mush it together until it's the texture of wet sand. Sprinkle topping evenly over the apples.

  • Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until apples are tender. Remove from oven and immediately drizzle with caramel topping. Cut into pizza slices and serve warm with ice cream. Makes 12 servings.



Note: I like to use salted butter because it cuts the sweetness of the pizza. If you don't use salted butter sprinkle some salt on top of the crisp. Trust me. It brings out the flavors.

    What up with not being able to pin recipes from Food Network? I can go through the steps to save but nothing saves. ☹️

    • Christy Denney Reply

      This isn’t from food network so I’m not sure what you’re referring to.

    My father and grandmother had a decades long pie crust rivalry. Gramma made her crust and Dad thought he could improve on it. When he did, Gramma would try new methods and secret ingredients, and then Dad set off to make an even better crust.

    Many years into this competition I made a pear and plum galette with the Deluxe Butter Flaky Pastry Dough from the 1997 Joy of Cooking recipe. Dad ate silently but for the occasional happy noise of foodie pleasure then announced the verdict. It was the best pie crust he’d ever eaten and he wanted the recipe to “beat the socks off your Gramma and claim the crown and title of Best Pie Crust Maker of Ever”. And he did. Then I told Gramma how he got the recipe. Now I hold the title and the crown. 😀

      Ooh making a note of this for sure!!

    My family is not big on oats. Can I just leave them out? Thanks.

    • Christy Denney Reply

      Yeah it is kind of the main part of the crumble but you can leave it out.

    I love eating apples that are so crisp the juice pops in your eye. When they start getting a tad soft I want to try something new. Apple pizza!
    I just dehydrated some grapes and threw them into the mixture.
    I didn’t need to add the glaze. It was perfect just as it was….except a scoop of ice cream. 😉

    I have an awesome pie crust recipe. Makes about 16 at one time. Best crust ever. If you want it email me. Put apple pizza in the subject line. So I will know.

    I cant wait to make this! It reminds me of 1 of 2 dessert pizzas that Pizza Hut used to offer with their lunch buffet when i was a kid in the 90s. Only difference is they used a royal icing drizzled over….plus I’m sure this is actually much better since its homemade!

    • Christy Denney Reply

      Thanks! Good luck!

  9. Bella R Reply

    This recipe is VERY dangerous. I made it and my boyfriend and I finished it with in two hours….

    • Christy Denney Reply

      I agree. So dangerous!

  10. Carol Reply

    I’m considering try this tomorrow. Just wondering if the crust is floppy when serving?

    • Christy Denney Reply

      It’s not super stiff.

  11. Dawn Reply

    Think this would work on a jelly roll pan if you doubled everything?

    • Christy Denney Reply

      I don’t see why not!

    I made this for a family pitch in this weekend. It was a HIT! Out of the numerous desserts to pick from, my tray only had one tiny piece. I loved how easy it was to whip this up with only a few ingredients.

    It will be a new go-to for quick dessert! Thanks!!!

    I just made this recipe and OMG it was sooooooo good. I used the crust recipe that Melinda shared and doubled it, which worked out perfectly for a 12″ pizza pan. I also used 5 apples, 3 were Granny Smith and 2 were Gala apples. I doubled the crumb topping as well. This turned out fantastic!!! 5 Stars

    • Christy Denney Reply

      Double the crust? I like how you think.

    • Christy Denney Reply

      Thank you. You’re so sweet.

  24. Kim Hice Reply

    I’m a lazy heifer.. So instead of cutting up the apples and adding the other stuff, I just used canned pie filling. You can any flavor you want, then add the crumb on top.

    • Christy Denney Reply

      I’m with ya girl. Glad to know it works.

  25. Bobbi Reply

    My son and my husband loved this – I did too – I will make it again. Thanks for this recipe!

    Could you use frozen apples??!

      I’ve never tried but I’m sure you can.

    the only recipe i use for pie crust is: in a pie pan 1 c flour, sprinkle a little salt, 1/3 cup of oil and add milk to 1/2 cup. mix in pie pan with fork and pat out into the shape of pie pan. bake as usual. wonderful. a recipe i shared at tupperware parties for many years. we even made it at parties. always works.

    I wonder how this would be with phyllo dough? Can’t wait to try!

    I have a pie crust recipe, that my whole family uses.
    Its called “never fail pie crust”. It works, I can even do it!
    E-mail me for it if your interested.

  30. Jennifer Reply

    This reminds me of a dessert pizza I used to eat when I was a kid. It looks absolutely delicious, and I am going to have to make this ASAP!

    P. S. I’m not going to judge you for using store-bought pie crust. It saves so much time!

  31. Joanne Reply

    So, I was thinking of making this with a sugar cookie dough (cooked, of course) rather than a pie crust…

    • Christy {The Girl Who Ate Everything} Reply

      I think that sounds fabulous.

  32. Margaret Morris Reply

    I have your perfect flaky honest to goodness no fail pie crust:
    It sounds totally ridiculous but it totally WORKS! You can’t over work it. It stays flaky no matter what. To top that it makes enough for three 9 or 10 inch pies and you can freeze it for up to a year. easy-peasy……….
    4 C all purpose flour
    1 tsp salt
    2 Cups butter flavor shortening. DON’T USE BUTTER
    1 C lemon lime soda or ginger ale. Use beer if you are making a quiche or meat pie.
    mix salt with flour.
    cut in the shortening until large pea or marble size clumps for.
    Add liquid and stir in quickly, them let rest for about 20 minutes in the refrigerator. The dough will firm up and be workable. divide int three equal sized disks. Store the ones you are not immediately using in the refrigerator or freezer.
    Generously flour the work surface and top side of dough when rolling.

    I got this recipe from an old friend about fifteen years ago and it’s my favorite. I’ve tried many others and I always go back to it. Every time I give the recipe and directions to someone who says they can’t make pie crust they come up with a winner. I hope you try it and enjoy it as much as I have.

  33. Gladys Carlson Reply

    Do you use any butter or lard for you crust. If so how much? Thanks

    • Christy {The Girl Who Ate Everything} Reply

      I used a store bought crust. I know. That’s awful! I stink at pie crusts.

  34. Chloe Crabtree Reply
