Apple crisp pizza is made up of all of my favorite things: apples, pie crust (sidenote: I hate pie, but I love pie crust), and of course, straight-off-the-farm hand-stirred caramel, compliments of Fat Toad Farm.

I am always fascinated (good and bad), and often shocked, at the stories behind the food we eat. The more I educate myself on where my food comes from, the more I admire and respect farmers who work tirelessly to put natural foods on store shelves. Fat Toad Farm is no exception and I loved reading about their caramel process step by step. Seriously, fascinating!

If you’re a caramel/apple/pie crust lover like me, you will surely love this recipe. I’m not going to tell you how much I ate in a two hour window, but let’s just say it was….a lot.


    • Pastry for single-crust pie (I used one Trader Joe’s frozen gourmet pie crust)
    • 2/3 cup sugar
    • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    • 1 teaspoon ground Cinnamon
    • 4 medium apples (like Gala, Fiji, Braeburn, Empire) peeled and diced into 1/4 inch pieces
    • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
    • 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/4 cup salted butter, softened
    • 1/2 cup Fat Toad Farm goat’s milk caramel


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Roll pastry to fit a 12 inch pizza pan. Combine sugar, flour and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Add peeled, diced apples and toss. Arrange the apples in a single layer over the pie crust to completely cover it.
  3. For the topping: Combine the flour, brown sugar, oats, cinnamon, and butter in a bowl. Mix well (I used my hands). Sprinkle topping evenly over the apples.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until apples are tender. Remove from oven and immediately drizzle with warm caramel. Cut into pizza slices and serve warm with ice cream. Makes 8-12 servings depending on how big you cut your slices.

The next time you sign up to bring dessert to a bbq or potluck, this is the dessert to bring. You’ll go down in potluck history with apple crisp pizza; I guarantee it. To get you started, Fat Toad Farm is giving one lucky winner an 8   oz jar of their Salted Bourbon caramel (it comes in a tiny metal baking tin with a recipe for a loaf of caramel cake, cute!). Leave a comment below to enter and I’ll pick a winner next Friday.

Happy baking!
