It’s starting to happen. The thing I feared most when moving back to the Chicago area.
The taking for granted of good pizza.
For 8 years we lived in a vast desert of no pizza…otherwise known as Ohio. Every chance possible, we would get Chicago pizza. Every visit home required this of us.
And now, after 4 months of being back home, pizza night brings “ughs” and “agains?!”. I think that means we have been eating too much deep dish. Yes?
So we switched up Pizza Night with this delicious Caramel Apple Sugar Cookie Pizza.
There were no complaints. And the only noise was moaning out of sheer joy! This was a great dessert. The chewy sugar cookie crust topped with a creamy Caramel cheesecake frosting. Don’t forget the sliced apples, caramel sauce and peanuts. You’ll think you just bit into a caramel apple!
It’s no secret that I have been in cahoots with Crunch Pak apples for the past couple years. Have you tried their products yet? My kids love the snack bags of apples, and I love using the sliced apples for baking. It makes it so convenient to rip open a bag of apples and lay them on the pizza. And….they don’t brown up, perfect for making this before dinner and serving after your meal!
Making a cookie pizza is so easy! You may remember this Macadamia Cookie Pizza I shared a couple years ago! It was the inspiration for today’s recipe.
I use a refrigerated sugar cookie dough, but if you have a great homemade recipe feel free to use that too! My goal for this recipe was easy. Delicious. Convenient. I think it’s been achieved! What do you think?
