Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • On a lightly floured work surface, roll out pate brisee to a 16-by-11-inch rectangle, trimming if necessary, and transfer to a large baking sheet. Prick dough all over with a fork. Transfer to refrigerator; chill for 30 minutes.

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees with a rack set in the middle.

  • Pour applesauce onto center of dough; using an offset spatula, spread evenly over dough leaving a 1/2-inch border all around. Arrange apples on top of applesauce in three tight rows down the length of the dough, using 2 apples per row. Brush with melted butter and dust heavily with confectioners' sugar.

  • Bake, rotating the baking sheet two-thirds of the way through the baking time, until golden brown, about 50 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack.

  • Meanwhile, heat jam in a small saucepan over low heat until warm; strain through a fine mesh strainer. Brush jam over warm pizza. Using a pizza wheel, cut into squares and serve.

Made this today since it seems so easy on the show. The brisee was a bit hard to roll out but I stuck with it. I baked it for 50 minutesas instructed, and the apples burned. I think 50 minutes is way to long. Unfortunately the last 10 minutes I did not check it, I would say 40 minutes would be better. The applesauce leaked on the side and burned as well. Not very happy with the results unfortunately. I had hoped to serve this to guests tomorrow.

I've cooked this twice now and I get better at it each time - it was a big hit each time. I don't think you can go wrong. My wife has been telling everyone about it so there is not doubt that I will be cooking it again. This tasty treat won't last long because it's so tasty and easy to eat.
