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.
