This months challenge was brought to us by Rosa from Rosa’s Yummy Yums. Rosa decided to give us a nice change of sweet pace and had us all make Pizza! I was so excited for this challenge. It was so nice to try something different. Our challenge was to make pizza like the pros. Which meant a little tossing action. I wasn’t so good at that action, but I tried anyway. We were supposed to catch that in a photo, but since I only had my 3 1/2 year old and my 1 1/2 year old around, I didn’t exactly think I could trust them with my very expensive camera. Yes, I got my camera back if you were wondering. That is another story for another time. Anyways, trust me that I did try it out. But I think I’m just a rolling pin kind of girl. It was still a delicious recipe.
We had to make 2 different kinds of pizza, using sauce and toppings of choice. I decided on a savory and sweet, of course. My savory was delish, but let me tell you a little about my sweet. Oh. My. Despite the fact that I almost burnt it to smithereens, it was the best tasting sweet piece of heaven I have ever experienced in my life. Sounds like I’m exaggerating, right? I’m not. Picture this. A nice thin sweet dough brushed with melted butter and topped with sauteed apples smothered in cinnamon, brown sugar and butter. Top that with a brown sugar, cinnamon crumble and top that with a sweet glaze. I know that words to not give this even remotely justice, but let me tell you that it was absolutely delicious. Mouthwatering delicious. I will definitely be making this again and again. My photo’s do not give it justice either, but if you are in the mood for a sweet treat, give this one a try. You won’t be disappointed. My savory pizza was topped with a white sauce and than topped with a 6 Italian Cheese blend. I added tomatoes and Italian sausage to make it over the top tasty. And it was. If only I owned a brick oven, that would have made my pizzas perfect. For the recipe for this challenge, visit here. Check out the other Daring Bakers here. Here is my recipe for my Apple Pizza.
Apple Pie Pizza
