Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium bowl, combine contents of the pizza dough package and 1/2 cup hot water. Stir vigorously, about 25 strokes. Set the bowl in a warm place (about 85 degrees F, or 35 degrees C) for 5 minutes. Turn dough onto floured board, divide the dough into 8 small sections. Knead the dough and shape it into rounds.

  • Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).

  • In a large skillet, heat the olive oil. Add the dough and fry until the dough is lightly browned, flipping once to brown on both sides. Once cooked, place the circles on a cookie sheet. Sprinkle the feta, red onion, and thyme on top of the circles.

  • Bake the pizzas until the feta begins to brown, about 10 to 12 minutes.

  • While the pizzas bake, in the previously used skillet, heat 1/2 tablespoon of butter and a few sprigs of thyme. Mix the apples into the skillet, and cook until the apples are soft and golden. Lay the apples on top of the pizzas, season with pepper, and serve.

This recipe- as it stands- works very well. It's almost professional in fact- something that I could see served as a restaurant appetizer. A couple of suggestions here- do make fresh pizza dough and _do_- fry it as suggested. Do not deep fry but pan fry. The dough takes on a completely different texture and flavor that really supports the flavors. I would suggest also sauteeing the apples until just done- and if they are not very sweet adding a little sugar to bump that up. The apples should be _just_ on the sweet side. Finally I would strongly consider blending the feta with a little bit of oil and spooning it on_top_ of the apples before baking. Feta cheese doesn't always melt very well. Making a sort of spread out of it will help enormously. Read More

Pretty good. The taste improved with a tiny bit of barbeque sauce on a couple of them. Next time I'll add more apples. Read More

Not a fan of frying anything I opted to bake the dough. I put the apples and thyme on before baking and then sprinkled the feta after baking. The cheese melted good and nice and the flavors complemented each other beautifully! Read More

Interesting and good. I used a refridgerated crust instead of the mix. Next time I will also add fresh mozarella. Read More

i could not find powdered pizza crust so i used focacia bread mix... they turned out ok... i would use a tart apple like granny smiths i used red delicious and the result was too sweet for my taste.. i used more feta than called for because i love feta cheese... the focacia would not make good crust it plumped up too much and everything just wanted to fall off... i did however love the sweet apple taste contrast with the tart feta and the thyme was a wonderful accent... i would definitely try it again with a tarter apple and the right crust... a moderately quick and different from the mainstream meal when you are sick of pasta again..;) Read More

Very good ideas I made a few modifications. We used a Boboli crust with a barbeque sauce base. I fried up 4 slices of bacon and then sauteed onions apples 1 Tbs brown sugar and thyme in same pan. Has become a favorite in our home. Read More

Definitly would follow another users advice about preping the feta so it spreads better... Read More

Really really nice. I used a cornmeal dough and russet apples. I don't think a sweet apple will work as well with this recipe. An apple that will remain firm after baking will work best texture wise. Read More

Great flavor combo! I made the dough from scratch (bread machine) and pan fried it. Frying it does make a difference in the texture. Also I didn't use nearly as much goat cheese as in the recipe. I just eyed the amount when I sprinkled it on top. I bet this would be good on top of a pita if you're short on time. Read More

I thought these were quite nice. I only gave it a 4 as written though because they are absolutely AMAZING with pear instead of apple. I tried both and my tasters and I all agreed that the apple version pales in comparison. Good as written but do try it with pear also. I used a red pear don't know what variety that is and a golden delicious apple. Also I really don't think you need that much cheese and onion. I used half of what the recipe calls for and had just the right amount. Read More
