The other day we had a couple of extra kids around the house for dinner, so I made a triple batch of pizza dough for them to create their own masterpieces. Some of our kid’s friends can be picky eaters, but everyone loves pizza, even more so when they make one that tastes better than take out!
I had enough extra dough for one small pie, so I decided to throw something special together for the kids before school. Tentative cooks tend to think that special baked goods are time consuming and challenging to make, but in this case nothing could be farther from the truth.
- 1 ball of pizza dough
- A blob of butter
- 1 apple
Put butter in a microwaveable dish and nuke for 20 seconds or until melted.
While butter is melting, roll out dough on a floured surface and let sit for a few minutes.
Slice apple into thin slices. You may prefer to peel the apple, but the idea here is to be quick. If you slice them thin enough, even the pickiest kid won’t notice the skin is on there.
Brush melted butter on top pizza crust.
Arrange apple slices on top of dough. I decided to be a tiny bit fancy, but if that isn’t your gig, just toss them on.
Generously sprinkle the surface with cinnamon. You could use cinnamon sugar if you like, especially if the apples you are using are particularly tart.
Now we get a little funky!
While One of Seven’s original recipe calls for the pizza to be cooked in the oven, who has time to preheat the oven in the morning? It is faster and easier to toss your pie on the BBQ, just like we did a while back with our garlic bread pizza. On our Q, that means indirect heat for about 4 minutes and your breakfast pizza is good to go!
If you are reading this and think it will take too much time to get this all together, you are wrong. The day I made this, I was out of bed at about 7:30, made this dish in time for #1 son to eat it and then drive him to band practice at 8:05. If I can do it that quickly, so can you!
