Apple Maple Pizza

This fall, we’re focusing on eating what’s fresh, local, and WIILD, and this week I’m bringing you this simple pizza or flatbread made with a few of the ingredients that come top of mind for me when I think of Autumn in Ontario. Vegan options below.

Make it happen: 

Use any base you like. Personally, I use Namaste Brand Gluten Free Pizza Crust, because I haven’t found a single recipe from scratch that tastes better than this!

Ingredients: 

  • 2 fresh apples, cored and sliced
  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup, plus more for drizzling
  • 2 tbsp olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 1/4 cup stilton cheese (omit for vegan)
  • 3-4 slices of prosciutto (obviously omit for vegan!)
  • 1-2 cups of chopped arugula
  • 1/2 cup of toasted and chopped pecans
  • Coarse sea salt to taste

Preheat the oven to 375:

  • In a large frying pan: Add olive oil to pan over medium heat. Add your garlic and apples, and gently sauté until your garlic is just toasty brown.
  • Drizzle in your maple syrup and cook over low heat for about a minute or two.
  • Brush your prepared pizza, flatbread, or naan crust with olive oil, and apply some course sea salt.
  • Spread your apple mixture on your crust along with your meat and cheese. Bake until just warmed and she cheese and apple edges are just browning, about 8-12 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven, and top with chopped arugula and a drizzle of olive oil and extra maple if desired.
