Caramel Apple Pizza combines fresh apples and candied pecans with a creamy filling on a cookie crust. This dessert is so much fun to eat with caramel sauce drizzled on top!
When we have fresh harvest apples, this is one of our favorite desserts to make along with Cinnamon Roll Apple Rose and Apple Pie Tacos. You get the tartness of apples and the crunchiness of pecans in every bite!
It’s easy to make when you’re entertaining or just as something casual at home. The best part? Ready in just 30 minutes!
How to Make Caramel Apple Pizza
To keep things simple, we’re using store-bought sugar cookie dough for the crust. Then we top it with a cream cheese frosting. The final step is topping with chopped apples and pecans before drizzling with caramel sauce.
For the apples, we used Granny Smith but you can use any variety you like. To prevent them from discoloring, pour some seltzer on top of the chopped apples or squeeze some lemon juice on top.
