An apple a day keeps the doctor away. Ever heard of that before? Sure you have!
Well, when trying new wood fired oven dessert recipes, we've found that cooking an apple pie in our wood fired oven may keep the doctor away but it sure has family and friends swarming over!
Here's an easy way of making an apple pie in your residential wood fired pizza oven. This recipe was originally published by Taste of Home but we modified the directions slightly to allow for baking in your gas or wood fired pizza oven.
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 6 to 7 cups thinly sliced peeled tart apples
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice Pastry for double-crust pie (9 inches)
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 large egg white
- Additional sugar
Before getting started, light your pizza oven and allow it to heat up to 375°.
In a small bowl, combine the sugars, flour, and spices; set aside. In a large bowl, toss apples with lemon juice. Add sugar mixture; toss to coat.
Line a 9-in. pie plate with bottom crust; trim pastry even with edge. Fill with apple mixture; dot with butter. Roll out remaining pastry to fit the top of the pie. Place over filling. Trim, seal and flute edges. Cut slits in pastry.
Beat egg white until foamy; brush over pastry. Sprinkle with sugar. Cover edges loosely with foil.
Bake at 375° for 25 minutes. Don't forget to turn your apple pie so each side gets fire time.
Remove foil and bake 20-25 minutes longer or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Cool on a wire rack. Yield: 8 servings.
Ready all the ingredients and light up your pizza oven now and start cooking. Enjoy!
