Apple "Pizza"

Why do I called this pizza? Because it looks like a pizza, you built it like a pizza...and also I cut it with a pizza cutter :D . It is very easy to make and sooo delicious!

We need pie dough (preferably homemade!), some 3-4 tart apples (like granny smith), sugar,(dark)brown sugar, cinnamon (I use "regular" cinnamon and saigon cinnamon which looks a little different and has a more powerfull flavor), unsalted butter, and and oven of course. We also need some 2 tablespoons of appricot preserves for a glossy finishing.

First we make the pie dough. It is easy to make and well worth it. I "might" post the recipe for the dough some time soon, but it is so easy to find a recipe online. Just google it :)




















  Then, we roll it (well, it should be like a 14x10 regtangular, and 1/4 inch thickness, but I just didn't have the heart to cut the dough so I left in in that "oval" shape). We put the dough in a cookie pan. I also use perchament paper for easy clean-up.



















   
    Then we prepare the apples.





    We put the apples on the dough in a diagonal (or whatever way you want)




  
Then we add a little less than 1/2 sugar (and by all means, if you have a sweet tooth add more..whereas people who don't like their stuff really sweet should add less sugar).




   Then some brown sugar. I use dark brown sugar for that molasses taste, but I don't put much.




















   Then the cinnamom. We can't make this without the cinnamon.




















    And finaly, we add some butter on top...around 1/4 cup. If you use store bought pie dough, I wouldn't put much if any butter as the store bought dough has already a ton of fat in it and the pizza would come out too greasy.




















     Then we put it in the preheated oven at 350 F for about an hour. I get mine out the oven after 50 minutes.



















     And it looks something like this when it comes out the oven



     We mix the appricot preserves with a tablespoon of water,put in the microwave for like 20 seconds then brush the mixture on top the pizza. And we can cut it up and eeeeeat it!
