A super delicious dessert recipe with a light and crispy pastry crust topped with apples and a sweet oatmeal topping and caramel drizzle. This dessert is reminiscent of apple crisps, only better!

Apple crisps used to be our go-to dessert. It was basically mine and my husband’s favorite and we made it almost every weekend when we would get to spend time together. And if you’ve had apple crisps, you’d know how good they are – they’re one of the best desserts out there. In fact, they used to be my number one – that was until I stumbled upon this apple crisp pizza recipe!

This apple crisp pizza is almost like your regular apple crisp. Only, it features a crispy puff pastry crust topped with apples. Then you have a sweet sweet topping made with oats and cinnamon and sugar (delightful!), then you finish with a caramel drizzle. This recipe is one for the eyes, heart and then mouth!

It’s a slice of heaven. That’s the best way to describe it. It’s become my number one dessert, it’s my husband’s favorite for sure (he’s always torn between this pizza and the apple crisp), I try to keep my kids away from it, because I’m sure they’ll never let me rest if they got this on a regular – but in the odd times I give them a slice, they mob me and want more (good thing I’ve got my secret hiding place). This dessert is so good, the word good doesn’t even do it justice.

You can eat this plain, or with vanilla ice cream, it’s delicious either way. The best part about this is that it doesn’t take time to make. For something so heavenly, the ease surprises me!

  • Crust:
  • Pastry for single-crust pie (9 inches)

  • ⅔ cup sugar

  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon ground Cinnamon

  • 4 medium apples peeled and diced into ¼ inch pieces

  • ⅓ cup packed brown sugar

  • ½ cup old-fashioned rolled oats

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/2 cup caramel topping


  • Crust:
  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 12-inch pizza pan lightly with non-stick spray
  • Roll the pastry to fit into the pizza pan. Fold under the edges so the pizza gets a raised crust
  • Combine sugar, flour and cinnamon in a medium-sized bowl. Add peeled, diced apples and toss till the flour mix completely covers the apples
  • Arrange the flour-covered apples in a single layer over the pie crust to completely cover it.
  • Topping
  • Combine the flour, brown sugar, oats, cinnamon, and butter in a medium-sized bowl. Mix well till even.
  • Sprinkle the topping evenly over the apples on the crust
  • Place the pan in the oven and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes or until apples are tender.
  • Remove baked pizza from the oven and immediately drizzle with caramel topping. Cut into pizza slices and serve warm. You can serve it with ice cream if available.


Any baking apple is a good choice for this recipe. Here, I used Empire apples. You could also use Gala, Fiji, Braeburn or Granny Smith. These apples hold their shape even when they’re tender and cooked through. Ensure to avoid apples that get soft after cooking like Macintosh.

Salted butter brings out the sweetness in this pizza. If you lack salted butter, sprinkle some salt over your regular butter and then use.
