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.

  1. 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.

  2. Omgggg yum. Must try this soon.

  3. the question is, do you eat all this stuff u make? LOL

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

  4. Oh yum!!!

  5. 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!

  6. What a great idea! Looks fabulous and I can’t wait to try it.

  7. Wow, looks delish.

  8. 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?

    • 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.

  9. I can see me making these in the very near future!! The look delicious! I also think the daycare kiddos would love to make them.

  10. OMG that looks amazing Cat! My mouth is seriously watering! I am going to try this on Saturday. I’ll let you know how it turns out!

  11. Wow… That looks so good. I could eat the whole thing!!

  12. 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!

  13. Fantastic Guys!

  14. mmmm it looks soo yummy, can’t wait to try it :)

    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!

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