Spooky Apple Pizza

spookyapplepizza_sliceHalloween is one of our favorite holidays. Dressing ourselves and the kids up and trolling through our spooktacular neighborhood trading candy and conversation with the neighbors is my idea of a holiday. Our kids are still young, so the prospect of them diving into their pumpkins and eating nothing but candy for dinner is not a real fear…yet. But, I rue the day. So, I try to keep things interesting around All Hallows Eve so everyone enjoys eating something other than candy. Not to say that this recipe is sugar free by any means, but it has four non-candy food groups!spookyapplepizza

If drawing a spider web on top (and maybe even going that extra mile and putting plastic spiders on each slice of pizza) gets the kids to enjoy eating their breakfast, lunch or dinner on the National Candy Holiday, I’m all for it. Not to mention it’s finally Fall and Apple Season! Sweet delicious apple season. This is a great way to use those apples for something special, with or without the spider webs.

Ingredients:

  • 1 12-inch    pizza crust
  • 3 cups apples, tart, sliced thin
  • 2 ounces cheddar, sharp
  • 0.5 cups brown sugar
  • 0.25 cups pecans, chopped (optional)
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 0.25 teaspoons nutmeg
  • 0.125 teaspoons ginger
  • 2 ounces sour cream

Directions:

Spread apple slices over crust. Combine sugars and spices. Sprinkle over apples. Dot with butter. Top with sliced cheddar and pecans (if desired). If freezing, skip to freezing directions now. To serve: Bake at 350 until the apples are tender and the cheese is bubbly, 25-35 minutes.

Place sour cream (thinning with milk if necessary) in a squirt bottle or a sandwich bag with the corner clipped off. Draw concentric circles on pizza with sour cream. Draw lines from center to crust edge and then run a knife through those lines to create web.

Freezing Directions:

Flash freeze. Wrap in plastic wrap and divide among freezer bags. To serve: Bake at 350 until the apples are tender and the cheese is bubbly, 25-35 minutes (thawed) or 45-50 minutes (frozen).

Place sour cream (thinning with milk if necessary) in a squirt bottle or a sandwich bag with the corner clipped off. Draw concentric circles on pizza with sour cream. Draw lines from center to crust edge and then run a knife through those lines to create web.

Servings: 4
