Serves: 4
Prep time: 45 min
Cook time: 30 min

Ingredients

  • 1 refrigerated pie crust
  • 2 chopped apples
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 eggwash
  • 4 tablespoons water
  • 1 baking sheet
  • 1 parchment paper

Directions

  1. Chop 2 apples into tiny pieces and coat with 1 ½ - 2 Tbsp. sugar, ½ tsp. cinnamon, and 1/4 tsp. nutmeg.
  2. Unroll both pie crusts onto a work surface covered in parchment paper. Optional: use a rolling pin to smooth out any creases.
  3. Use a ruler to mark every ½” or 1” on one pie crust. Also, use the ruler and a sharp knife to impress even lines and cut strips from the pie crust. Set aside.
  4. Spread an even layer of apples onto the other pie crust.
  5. Weave dough strips over apples, first laying half of the strips vertically, then weaving the horizontal pieces in next. Feel free to use a little bit of water in each place where the dough strips overlap. Brush top crust with egg wash. Alternately, use 1 round piece of dough to cover the top. Make sure to cut vent holes before baking.
  6. Once done weaving, sprinkle on a mixture of 2 Tbsp. sugar + ½ tsp cinnamon, and bake for 15-20 minutes at 375 degrees F. Slice like a pizza and enjoy! We cut the finished Apple Pie Pizza with a sharp knife, but you could also use a pizza cutter! Enjoy!
