Apple Pie Pizza

Much of the flavor of apple pie, but lower in fat.



3/4 cup whole wheat flour
2 1/2 cups bread flour
1 1/2 tsp yeast
1 1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp Smart Balance oil
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 1/8 cup water

4 apples, peeled and sliced


1/3 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup quick oats
1 tsp ground flax seed (optional)
2 tbsp Smart Balance buttery spread
1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp fat free milk


Combine first seven ingredients together in a bread machine following manufacturer's instructions. Run on dough cycle. Allow dough to rest for 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Spread dough onto pizza pan sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Allow to rise for 30-60 minutes.

Peel and cut apples. (I use McIntosh) Spread evenly onto dough. Bake for 10 minutes. While crust and apples are baking, mix wheat flour, brown sugar, oats, Smart Balance, flax seed, and cinnamon to form a crumbly topping. Sprinkle over apples. Bake for another 15-20 minutes, or until apples are soft and crust is golden brown and cooked through. Allow to cool.

Combine powdered sugar, cinnamon, and just enough milk to form a glaze. Drizzle over top.
