- Whisk the lukewarm water and yeast in a plastic or glass jug. Let mixture stand for five minutes.
- Add salt and flour in a large bowl. Create a hollow well in the middle and gently pour the liquid yeast mixture and oil.
- Using a spatula, or your hands, mix the dough really well until smooth. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured work surface and knead for five minutes.
- Lightly oil a bowl, and place dough in it and cover with plastic wrap. Leave in a warm place to rise for 30 minutes to an hour, or until it doubles in size.
- Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently for another 5 minutes or until smooth.
- Sprinkle a little flour on the bench before rolling to prevent dough from sticking.
- Divide the dough into balls, and roll out bases to desired size.

Preparing Apple Caramel Pizza
Preheat your oven to at least 450 degrees for 30 minutes or longer.
Spread out pizza dough on floured surface.
If you have a pizza peel, you can create your pizza on it (after flouring).
Start by spreading the sauce all over the base. This pizza uses Cream. Spread the Cream Thinly yet evenly, leaving a margin for the crust.
Add the largest toppings first – typically meat or seafood, then the smaller toppings.
Add cheese last, and sprinkle it all over to help keep the toppings in place when it melts.
This pizza has the following toppings:
- Ground Cinnamon
- Icing Sugar
I find this pizza delicious as is, or you could with another pizza variety?
Put the Apple Caramel pizza on the middle shelf of the oven and wait for approximately 10 minutes.
After roughly 10 minutes, check on the pizza.
Pizza should be ready within 15 minutes. However, allow it to cook to personal taste.
Cinnamon is farmed from the inner bark of a small everGreen tree, where the bark is peeled and laid in the sun to dry, where it curls into rolls known as cinnamon sticks.
Cinnamon is thought to have many medicinal and soothing properties, and is used frequently in Chinese herbal medicine. Also available in powdered form, this favourite household spice has a pleasant aroma and soothing flavour, making it popular in cooking.
When making Apple Caramel Pizza, I always recommend that you use what you have available, without spending lots of money. My basic pizza tool list is…
A pizza stone really helps create a fantastic tasting pizza at home. Learn how to clean and care for your Pizza Stone.
Having quality, air tight dough storage containers is a must.
Glass Measuring Jug
A good quality, heavy glass measuring jug with clear marking for various measures to me is a must. I hate taking chances with portions, so it’s an important tool for me.
Apple has a delicate flavour, so it works really well to balance sharp or smoked cheeses. Apples have long been a fruit paired with cheese, so it makes perfect sense that it’s a fantastic topping for pizza.
A medium apple has around 80 calories, and is sodium, fat and cholesterol free. Two-thirds of the fiber and lots of the antioxidants in Apples are actually found in the peel.
These are all true, believe me!

The most popular pizza cheese
You guessed it! Mozzarella is one of the most popular pizza toppings around the world, no matter what country you are in.
