Deep-Dish Maple Apple Breakfast Pizza


Breakfast pizzas are easy and economical. This one combines delicious Fall flavors of apple and maple and makes the whole house smell delicious!




Deep-Dish Maple Apple Breakfast Pizza



  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 package (2 1/4 teaspoons) yeast
  • 1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon maple syrup, divided
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil 
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour (<– substituting part white whole wheat works fine)
  • 2 apples, washed and sliced thinly
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • generous sprinkle (about a tablespoon?) cinnamon



  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons water




1. Add warm water, yeast, and 1 tablespoon maple syrup to large bowl. Stir and allow to sit for about five minutes until bubbles form and it looks “foamy.”


2. Add salt, olive oil, and two cups of flour. Stir until smooth dough forms. Using hands, incorporate remaining flour until dough holds a ball shape and is not terribly sticky.


3. Press dough into a greased 9″ x 13″ cake pan. Top with an even layer of apple slices; it’s fine if they overlap a bit.


4. In a small bowl or measuring cup, stir together the remaining 1/4 cup maple syrup and 1/4 cup melted butter. Drizzle this over the apples.


5. Sprinkle cinnamon generously over the top.


(*At this point, the pizza can be covered,  put in the fridge, and left overnight– this is what I prefer to do.)


6. Bake in a 375 preheated oven for 13-16 minutes. Remove to cool for just a few minutes before cutting.


***7. An optional glaze can be made from the powdered sugar and water. I did make this and it made it look glossy and pretty. That said, it was almost TOO sweet for our tastes, so I would likely skip it next time. The same pretty gloss could be achieved by drizzling a little melted butter over the top of the baked pizza; I think that’s what I’ll do next time.***
