Cinnamon Streusel Apple Pizza with Brown Butter Cinnamon Sugar Cookie Crust

Cinnamon Streusel Apple Pizza

I have always loved fruit pizza.  And nothing helps usher in the fall like apples.  So apple pizza just makes sense, right?

What if I told you that this apple pizza is baked on a brown butter cinnamon-sugar cookie crust?  Are you convinced now?

No? Well, then maybe the brown sugar Greek yogurt “sauce” will have you on board with this apple pizza, yes?

I though so.  I knew it wouldn’t take much more convincing than that.  This apple pizza made my whole loft smell like fall.  The cinnamon, sugar, nutty brown butter, and the apples meshed so well together on this fruit pizza.  The crust is sweet and nutty and nearly melts in your mouth.  And the streusel gives the perfect crunch along with the apples!

    Apple pizza, you’re a girl after my own heart! The perfect evening would involve making a savory pizza and then having your apple pizza for dessert. A double dose of pizza would send me to heaven! Alright, I’m ready for baking season and can’t wait to try some of the apple recipes you all come up with!

    Between your biscoff buckeyes and THIS pizza, I can only assume you have me in mind all week. just kidding! But Cassie, I love your recipes so much because they are exactly what my tastebuds scream for! a brown butter cinnamon sugar cookie crust is just out of this world! Takes dessert pizza to a whole other level. I love fruit pizzas, they are SO much fun and so versatile!

    Dessert is the usually sweet course that concludes a meal. The food that composes the dessert course includes but is not limited to sweet foods. There is a wide variety of desserts in western cultures now including cakes, cookies, biscuits, gelatins, pastries, ice creams, pies, pudding, and candies. Fruit is also commonly found in dessert courses because of its natural sweetness..*
