  • ½ batch Taste Connections Pizza Dough (see earlier recipe)
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
  • ⅛ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 large apple, peeled, cored, and sliced as thin as possible.


  1. Place a pizza stone on the lowest rack of the oven.
  2. Preheat oven to 425°F
  3. Roll dough for 1 pizza into a 12-inch circle (I like to put the dough on a piece of parchment and then on a cutting board or pizza peel before adding sauce and toppings).
  4. Brush the dough with the melted butter.
  5. Combine sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle half on the buttered crust.
  6. Arrange the apple slices on top, and then sprinkle with remaining cinnamon and sugar.
  7. Slide pizza and parchment onto the hot stone and bake for 10 – 15 minutes (time will vary depending on how thin/thick your dough is and the quantity of sauce and toppings you use.)
