Gluten Free Caramel Apple Pizza with Streusel Topping – A delicious dessert pizza featuring a gluten free pizza crust, apples, a drizzle of caramel, and a sweet and crumbly streusel topping.
Hey, friends! Are you wondering about that pizza up there? Completely delicious and totally satisfying! I have been eating it all weekend and I invite you to jump in on the fun!
But, in all seriousness, apples covered in caramel and a streusel topping, and sitting atop this glorious (and gluten-free) pizza crust is basically the best thing to come out of my kitchen this Fall.
The whole pizza with apples and caramel is so on point and all made from scratch, but the kicker is that this pizza crust AND its toppings are completely gluten free!
I am not strictly a gluten-free baker by any means, but I love baking recipes that everyone can enjoy and this recipe uses Argo’s Gluten Free Pizza Crust, so I knew I could trust the crust recipe would deliver on taste and results.
Did you know that Argo® Corn Starch is gluten-free? Their baking powder is too! And corn starch doesn’t only thicken sauces and gravies, but it is also used in gluten-free baking because it adds structure and tenderness to baked goods. In fact, one of my favorite gluten-free blends is just rice flour + Argo® Corn Starch. Works like a charm because Argo® Corn Starch is flavorless, thus it allows the natural taste of food to shine through.
There were lots of topping-ideas to choose from – and more can be found at argostarch.com/Recipes/ – but I decided on this because I love simple Fall-themed goodies. Even if you’re more of a pepperoni-pizza fan, there’s no denying that this pizza-dessert is going to make you want to thank me.
This is how it all goes together. We will first make the pizza crust by combining Gluten Free Argo® Baking Powder with your favorite gluten-free flour mix, some Fleischmann’s® Pizza Crust Yeast, water, and oil.
While all that comes together, we are going to slice up a couple of beautiful Granny Smiths + make the most glorious caramel topping with Argo® Corn Starch, butter, and Karo® Syrup. A mixture of oats, brown sugar, and butter will also come together to create a perfect gluten free streusel topping that will take this pizza to whole new levels.
If you’re feeling extra daring, add some nuts to it. Maybe even chocolate chips! Heck, chop up your favorite chocolate candy bar and toss it on there, then watch it all disappear in minutes.
For the best news of all: if you have self-control and eat one slice, your skinny jeans will still love you. However, if you sneak in two slices while cleaning up the kitchen?!? HA! This is why you and I are friends!!
