Apple Pizza

Being in an European country, one thing you can never avoid is a Pizza. The aroma of melting cheese, especially that of sheep cheese can really induce your appetite wherever you are. In the beginning it was really hard for me to find a pizza of my taste so I couldn't opt for ready-made pizzas on some emergency. Its again my Spanish flatmate who introduced this apple pizza to me. Just give a try to this simple recipe and am sure you will love it. You will understand apple in a different way :)
Pizza Base - 1 roll
Onion- 1
Tomato puree - 2 Tbsp
Cheese (sliced)- 4 slices
Cheese (shredded) - as required
Oil- 1 Tbsp
  1. Cut onion into fine julienne. In a fry pan add little oil say 1/2 Tbsp and fry the onions in very low flame for 15 mins. Onion becomes translucent, soft and slightly sweeter as it is cooked for a long time.
  2. Once onion is ready, roll out the Pizza base on a flat surface with a baking sheet and spread tomato puree evenly on the pizza base.
  3. Cut the cheese slices into small pieces and spread them over the base. 
  4. Now peel off the apple and cut them into small slices and arrange them over the cheese on the pizza.
  5. Layer it up with fried onion, and finally, spread the shredded cheese over the pizza.
  6. Sprinkle little oregano over the cheese to add flavour
  7. Preheat the oven to 210 degrees for 10 mins. Keep this pizza in a baking tray and place it inside the oven.
  8. Bake it for 10 mins or until the cheese melts.
  9. Serve it hot. 
* Do not let onions to burn.
* I have used a thin (ready made) pizza base, as I don't like thick bread. You can also try to prepare pizza base with maida, water, oil and yeast.
* Instead of oregano, you can also use grated lemon peel.
