Caramel Apple Pizza

Sharing is caring!

Caramel Apple Pizza is one of those recipes I don’t make enough. I love the taste of the caramel and the apples. The sugar cookie and the nuts just make it an awesome dessert! It’s pretty simple to put together. I would suggest you cut the apples in thin slices so it’s easier to eat.

I always have ingredients in my house so I can throw a dessert together for an impromptu dinner invite. A few weeks ago the sugar cookie dough was marked down so I grabbed 2 of them to have handy in case I needed a fun dessert. 

But all along I had this recipe in the back of my mind to make with the sugar cookie dough. It’s so easy to make and everyone loves it! They can’t believe how good all the flavors mix together.

Even if you don’t have sugar cookie dough available 0 it’s really easy to make your own. 

I love this recipe because it uses brown sugar to give it a different kind of sweetness. Don’t worry if it’s a little gritty when you combine the ingredients – the brown sugar will melt into the mixture quickly. 

You can also top it with some chopped peanuts. My family is mixed about this so sometimes I just do the peanuts on half the caramel apple pizza. 

Here are a few of my go-to dessert recipes:

 

Caramel Apple Pizza is an sweet and delicious recipe that is a great idea for parties with kids or adults.

This is also a really fun recipe to make with kids. It’s easy for them to spread the peanut butter mixture on the sugar cookie. Then while I am cutting up the apples my daughter likes to add them to the dessert pizza. 

Caramel Apple Pizza

  • 1 package (18 ounces) refrigerated sugar cookie dough or homemade cookie dough
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 medium apples, thinly sliced (I have used Red Delicious and Granny Smith)
  • 1/4 cup caramel ice cream topping (or use this recipe)
  • 1/2 cup peanuts, chopped

Preheat oven to 350°F. Cover a pizza pan with parchment paper. Shape dough on the pizza pan about 1/4 inch thick.  Bake about 16-18 minutes or until light golden brown. Remove from oven and cool completely.

Mix the vanilla, cream cheese, brown sugar, and peanut butter in a small bowl with an electric mixer. Spread cream cheese mixture evenly over cookie.

Peel, core, and slice apples. Cut apple slices in half and arrange evenly over cream cheese mixture. They are easier to eat if they are smaller.

Microwave ice cream topping on HIGH 30-45 seconds or until warm; drizzle evenly over apples. Chop peanuts and sprinkle over apples. Cut into wedges.

Serve and enjoy! Your family will love this dessert!
