apple pizza

so last night i realized that i didn’t have a key ingredient for the recipe i was prepared to make. which is a shame, because it’s a classic and delicious recipe from my previous food blog and i was really looking forward to it. papa fritz told me to just make normal pizza! sometimes it’s like he doesn’t know me at all. so i scoured the house and came up with what turned out to be a very successful, though unconventional, little pizza. serve this with a large side salad like we did and you can have dinner in about 20 minutes flat.

apple pizza

apple pizza

  • 4 pieces naan (or pocketless pita)
  • 8 slices black forest or maple/honey roasted deli ham
  • 2 ounces gruyere cheese
  • 2 granny smith apples
  • butter/olive oil

preheat oven to 350 degrees. quarter and core the apples and then cut them (lengthwise) into thin slices. shred the cheese on the smallest setting of a box shredder. cut the ham into ribbons. sprinkle a fine layer of cheese onto each piece of naan/pita and then lay the apples out in a fan shape on each one. sprinkle the ham on top of the apples and then top each with more cheese and dollop with butter or lightly drizzle with oil. bake for about 12 minutes, or until the cheese has melted. don’t cook too long, because you want the apples to maintain their crunch.

notes: you could swap the apples with pears, the ham with turkey, and the gruyere with cheddar or brie. you could also spread on some grainy or spicy mustard if you wanted a nice foil to the sweet tartness of the apples. play around and see what combinations you come up with!

    • awww, thanks for the baby compliment! he’s my treasure. i agree that they aren’t really pizzas, but i wasn’t sure what to call them, and they started as pizzas, so it seemed like a natural choice. 😉
