This weekend I was out doing some shopping and popped in Sam’s Club just to poke around and ended up running into the produce section. Next thing I know my cart filled up with big bags of bell peppers, grapes and some gorgeous looking Granny Smith apples.

There is probably a couple hundred things I could have done with these apples but for some reason, pizza came to mind. Thus … the cinnamon apple dessert pizza was born.

    This seems like it’s pretty quick to make. It looks like it bakes for 25-30 minutes. How long from start to finish? This looks like a dessert pizza I would buy.

      Absofrigginluely! But you gotta remember, there’s 5 of us so one dessert is usually a small portion for everyone.

    whoa this is kind of mind-blowing. blows away everything you think of pies and cinnamon rolls. there’s no way i don’t make this!

    Looks absolutely irresistible! I’m definitely going to try it. But, I’ve never tried vanilla bean paste before. Do you think it makes a nice difference?

    • says

      It probably doesn’t make a huge difference but I just like it more because it’s stronger and has all of those little vanilla bean speckles in it.

    You are brilliant. We’re having “pizza night” at my Bible group Monday and I wanted to make something NOT pizza-like. So, I came here and searched for “pizza.” Thanks!

    I made this tonight! I didn’t have the pie crust but I did have the Pillsbury Thin Crust Pizza dough that comes in a can in the fridge section.. I adjusted the cooking time to 20 minutes. My family loved it!

    Thank you for sharing!

    This cinnamon apple dessert recipe looks great! What is the difference between using vanilla bean paste and vanilla extract?
