After lots of recent outdoor work, I thought we could use a little treat. Who’s with me?

In keeping with A Year of the Skillet, I’ve been inspired to try yet another dessert: Skillet Apple Pizza Pie. What can I say? I have a sweet tooth. The idea for this creation comes from Nicole of Brown Sugar. Of course, I had to make mine grander and more decedent.

If you’re a fan of apple pie, but dread making crust, this recipe is for you. It’s the perfect combination of pie meets pizza. It’s a really thick pie with a soft crust and delicious crumb topping. I mean, I can’t even.

I also love this recipe because it uses tubed pizza dough. Now, I’m all about making my own dough, but there are days when you just don’t have time for that. With everything else happening in this dish, no one will notice (or care) that you used dough from a tube.

One other thing to note before diving in: Make sure you factor in time for your cooked apples to cool. If you’re in a hurry, spread them out on a baking sheet and pop them in the fridge for a few minutes. You’ll have an extra pan to wash, but it will cut down on the cooling time.’

I say the ice cream is optional, but you’re going to want it. Trust me.

Crumb topping:



  • Vanilla ice cream for serving, optional
  • Begin by making the filling. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a large pan on medium-high heat. Add the apples and allow them to cook for about five minutes. Then stir in the brown sugar and cinnamon. Adjust the heat to medium and allow the apples to cook for about 10 more minutes until they are tender and the sauce is thick. Remove from heat. Set aside and allow to cool completely.
  • Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F. Spray a 10-inch cast iron skillet (or pie dish) with baking spray. Place the pizza dough inside the pan, shaping it to cover the bottom of the pan and the sides. If the dough is hanging over the sides, tear it off and pinch it back to another area where the dough is not covering the pan.
  • In a small dish, combine 2 tablespoons sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. Brush the dough with butter, then sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar mixture. (You might not use all of the butter or cinnamon sugar.)
  • In a large bowl, make the crumb topping by combining the butter, sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt until crumbly. Squeeze the mixture in your hands to create larger crumbles.
  • Then, add the cooled apples to the top of the dough. Sprinkle the crumb topping evenly on the apples. Use as much or little of the crumb topping as you like.
  • Bake for 10 – 12 minutes or until the crust is golden.
  • In the meantime, in a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk. Add one tablespoon of milk at a time until the desired consistency is reached.
  • Once the pie is removed from the oven, allow it to cool. Drizzle with the glaze and serve with ice cream, if desired.

  1. I made this today, exactly as the recipe stated, except I added a tad more cinnamon to the flour mixture, because we’re big fans of the flavor. I also made this in a deep dish pie plate, which I ended up baking for twenty minutes, which probably could have used between 5 to 10 additional minutes more. Next time, I might try making it in my cast iron skillet. I never would have thought using a store bought pizza dough, could make such a delicious dessert. I think it tastes like a pie from a bakery, it’s that good! Thank you for a great recipe!

    1. I recommend using pizza dough as the recipe describes. As I’ve not made it with pie crust, I wouldn’t be able to advise you on cooking time or changes in directions.
