When I eat pizza, it is usually savory and cheesy, but when I got a hold of Pillsbury’s gluten free pizza dough, I had the urge to make dessert pizza…..so I did!. Enjoy!
Here are some Helpful Tips for managing the gluten free pizza dough (you may want to read this before getting started):
- · For easier dough handling, soften dough by either rolling smooth between greased hands or letting dough warm outside of refrigerator for 10-15 minutes prior to pressing into shape.
- · Brushing the top of the dough with oil, to prevent it from getting soggy from the toppings.
- · You can pinch the edges if you want to form a rim or lip.
- · Lightly sprinkle baking sheet with corn starch or rice flour.
- · Do not want edges to get too thin; will burn or get hard during the bake.
- · Press into shape by 1st forming a ball or rounded disk, press from center out to shape.
- · Greasing hands also helps with dough handling or pressing into desired shape.
- · Use a Roller to even dough thickness for even cooking.
- 2 cups peeled, cored and diced apples, cooked in water until tender
- 1/2 stick of butter, melted
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- ¼ cup white sugar
- 2 tablespoons apple juice
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- ½ cup gluten free all purpose flour
- ½ cup white sugar
- 4 Tablespoons slightly melted butter
- 1. HEAT oven to 400°F. Remove dough from container and divide in half. If making one pizza, return half to container and refrigerate.
- 2. GREASE cookie sheet (I used a pie dish as the filling is a little runny) and hands.
- 3. SOFTEN dough by forming it into a rounded ball. Starting from center, press out dough to form a 10-inch round.
- 4. PREBAKE dough 7-11 minutes or until edges are beginning to brown. In the meantime, mix together the filling: melt ½ stick of butter and add the brown and white sugar, apple juice, and cinnamon. Then add the cooked apples. Also prepare your topping by slightly melting 4 Tablespoons of butter and adding ½ cup white sugar and ½ cup of gluten free all-purpose flour. Blend topping ingredients until thoroughly mixed.
- 5. Once edges of the pizza crust are brown, FLIP crust using a spatula.
- 6. Then SPREAD apple pie filling over the crust, and crumble the topping mixture over the filling.
- 7. BAKE 5-10 minutes longer until crumble topping is slightly brown. Serve by itself or with ice cream!
