Savory sausage and sweet apples make the perfect apple pizza pie!
Apple-filled sausages are all over the supermarket this time of year and it’s really fun to use them in new recipes that bring out the apple flavor.
The most obvious way to bring out the apple flavor is to cook them with apples! That’s where this awesome pizza comes in.
The sausage and apples on this pizza are really sweet, so we need to pair it with something deep and savory to balance things out a bit. We know there will be salty cheese, but something else needs to really drive home the umami.
That’s where caramelized onions and garlic help. Instead of a tomato sauce, spread on some oil that's loaded with deeply browned onion and you have a delicious pizza that hits all the flavors you want to eat right now.
Take your time and brown up those onions nice.
All the toppings ready to go. Make sure you toss the apples in lemon juice so they don’t brown.
The dough comes out of the tube square, but I wanted a round pie so I worked it into that shape.
Onion, garlic, and oil instead of the normal sauce.
Cheese, apples, and the sausage.
Just put this into the oven and get ready to eat!
Sweet and savory. A little green onion on top adds a certain freshness and bite to the pizza.
