Caramel Apple Crisp Pizza {Happy Fall}

This dessert pizza has all the flavors of Fall baked on a pizza crust. Frozen  dinner rolls, homemade apple pie filling, a crispy buttery topping and finished off with drizzled caramel.  
Today I have a delicious Fall apple recipe to share with you. One of my family's favorite things is making our own pizza. It doesn't matter if they're sweet or savory, we love them all!
Fall officially began last week, but the cool weather didn't start rolling in until yesterday. 


Fall is my favorite time of year, the changing of the leaves, the nip in the air and all things apple and pumpkin.  Oh, how I love apple season! This shortcut Caramel Apple Crisp Pizza is made using Rhodes  frozen  dinner rolls, homemade apple pie filling, a crispy buttery topping and finished off with drizzled caramel. 

This is one of my favorite dessert pizzas and the perfect fall treat. My kids started helping in the kitchen as  soon as they could hold a mixer, so they love to cook as much as I do.  Now that they're older (teenagers) things have shifted a bit from helping me cook to cooking on their own which makes me happy. 

This Caramel Apple Crisp Pizza is the perfect recipe to get your kids started in the kitchen.  My youngest son is 13 so he helped me make this recipe. He rolled out the dough, added it to the pizza pan, spread the apple filling on top and the remaining topping ingredients. All I really had to do was prepare the filling and help with the oven. Let's get started.

Combine the thawed rolls into a ball and using a rolling pin, roll the dough into a 13-14 inch circle. Place on a sprayed 12-14 inch pizza pan. Poke dough several times with a fork to prevent bubbles from forming. 

Pre bake pizza for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside. 

While the pizza dough pre-bakes start on the apple filling. Peel and dice the apples small and place in a large skillet. In a small bowl combine the sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, and corn starch. Add 1 tablespoon of butter. Sprinkle the dry ingredients over the apples and add the water and vanilla extract. 

Cover and bring mixture to a slow boil, turn the heat down to low and simmer (stirring occasionally) until the apples are tender and the mixture starts to thicken. Cover and bring mixture to a slow boil, turn the heat down to low and simmer (stirring occasionally) until the apples are tender and the mixture starts to thicken. 

Remove from heat and set aside to slightly cool.

Spread the apple pie filling evenly over the pizza crust.

Sprinkle the topping evenly over the apple pie filling. 

Bake 20 - 25 minutes or until the crust and topping are golden brown. Remove from oven, cool slightly, drizzle melted caramel before slicing and serving.
