Week 43: Apple and Cheddar Pizza

A couple of months ago, our local paper printed a recipe for an apple and cheddar pizza.  I was intrigued by this so I cut it out and put it aside.  This week I wanted to make a pizza with apples and cheddar, but when I went back to the recipe, it didn’t wow me.  After googling for other recipes, I finally decided to keep it simple and follow this guy’s example.

I used a store bought dough this week and Cortland apples.  I sliced the apples thin and coated them with cinnamon, sugar, and a dash of nutmeg.  I piled shredded sharp cheddar cheese on the crust, followed by the apples, and then more cheese.

It cooked for about 12 minutes at 475 F.

Generally speaking, I don’t like cooked apples, but I liked this pizza.  I think it’s because it was a combination of sweet and savory, which I’m always a fan of.  The husband said it was “not bad” and better than he expected.  Both of us wish the cheese was more flavorful.  Also, the crust was a little soggy from the apples releasing juices while they cooked.  It might be better to pre-cook them somehow or use an apple that is less juicy.  Since I don’t usually cook with apples, I’m not sure which ones are best for what.
