Weekend Baking ~ #4

Tell me, does that not look delicious? :)
This weekend I only got to bake for one day because I went for a little shopping trip to Kenora for a little shopping trip on Saturday! I just love Kenora :) Yes, it's a tourist trap... but it's a pretty tourist trap!

So without boring you with my gushing about Kenora (cause it was -30 and I didn't get any pictures, maybe next time!) Let's jump right in to the recipe!

Apple Strusel Brunch Pizza

Prepare dough:
  • Dissolve yeast in 1/4cup water. 
  • Dissolve sugar and salt in the rest of the water in your mixing bowl. Mix together with canola oil.
  • Add flour on the top of oil mixture then add yeast mixture. (protects the yeast from the oil and salt!)
  • Cover and set in a warm spot for approximately an hour. 
  • Knock back the dough and divide into three equal portions
  • Cover and let rest for about 15 more minutes

  • Toss the apples with lemon juice.
  • In a bowl mix cinnamon, brown sugar and cornstarch. Toss with apples.
  • Spread apples out on a baking sheet and dot with butter. Bake at 400F for ~10-15 minutes.

1/4cup flour
3tbsp butter

Prepare Strusel Topping:
  • Combine flour and brown sugar.
  • Cut butter into flour mixture.
1/2tbsp butter
1/2tbsp cream cheese
1tsp vanilla
1cup icing sugar


Prepare Glaze: 
  • Melt butter with cream cheese.
  • Mix in vanilla.
  • Mix in icing sugar and add milk if it's not smooth enough to drizzle.
Assemble Pizzas:
  • Roll dough out until thin.
  • Arrange apple pieces over dough
  • Sprinkle with strusel
  • Bake at 450F for approximately 10-15 minutes or until crust is light golden
  • Drizzle with glaze when still hot
  • Serve warm

Once again I adapted this recipe from a few different sources and also I used my awesome baking expertise to make it extra yummy! Head on over to my main inspiration, the wonderful Minimalist Baker for a lovely dairy free version of this recipe!

See you next weekend!!
