Apple Almond Dessert Pizza Recipe

If you are looking for a dessert pizza recipe that will still have some nutrition, this is the one for you.

Apple Almond Dessert Pizza Recipe. A dessert pizza with fall's favorite fruitAs we wrap up apple week, I kept thinking about this dessert pizza.  The apples aren’t exactly the biggest reason we love this pizza, it’s the sauce! Oh my heavens.  This “sauce” is bowl licking amazing.   I ate way too much of it.  I think I may have eaten more than what I put on the pizza.  This sauce is a combination of almond butter, maple syrup, and almond extract.  I definitely need to find more things to use the sauce for, but thinning it out for a fruit dip is going to be my next reason I make it.

But back to the pizza!   Adding apples to dessert pizza is a great way to get a bit more fiber, even though you are eating dessert. And after all, fruit makes the best desserts any way.  So, we started with your standard pizza crust.  You can purchase a pre-made pizza crust, but it’s my opinion making your own is actually quite easy!  We use this recipe for pizza crust.    This time when we made it, I obviously used all white flour, but we’ve also used all whole wheat flour as well.   Then, we completely cooked the crust!
