Cooking With TechyDad: Apple Cheddar Pizza
As I mentioned before, we went apple picking two Saturdays ago and wound up with 29.5 pounds of apples. Some of these found their way into a big batch of Slow Cooker Apple Sauce, but there were still plenty left. I saw a recipe online for Apple Cheddar Pizza and it intrigued me. So, for dinner Sunday, I made four pizzas. Two were the usual sauce-and-cheese affairs, but the other two…
First, as always, we gather our ingredients.
That would be pizza shells, shredded cheddar cheese and apples. Note, that I used more than those two small apples. Depending on the size of your apples, you might need three or four per pizza.
First, I laid out the pizza shell.
Note: If you make your own from scratch or buy dough, that’s great. Just get it to the “ready to top” stage and continue on from here.
Next, I tossed on a thin layer of cheddar.
I pealed, cored and thinly sliced the apples. The slices were arranged in a circular pattern on the pizza.
At this point, you could toss on a little cinnamon or your favorite apple-accompanying spice. I was in a hurry to taste this so on went a second layer of cheesy goodness.
It went into the oven for about 7 minutes until the cheese was melted.
Um, like I said, I was in a hurry to eat this. So much so that I forgot to take a photo of the whole pie. Oops. Want a slice?
If, like me, you
forgot decided not to add a spice before, you could always add it now.
Or, also like me, you could make a second pie.
NHL declared this to be the best pizza I’ve ever made. His exact words! So I’d say this was a hit. What’s not to like? Apples and cheese make a great combo. And, with about 14 more pounds of apples left, I might be making this again very soon.
