We are beyond blessed to have friends with apple trees! Right now we are swimming in them....happily. Apple desserts can be a healthy way to satisfy that sweet tooth. Here's a quick and easy tortilla pizza for you, topped with crushed pistachios for some healthy fats and a kick of flavor.
Cinnamon Apple Tortilla Pizza with Pistachios
1 flour tortilla, 8-10"
1 1/2 small apples, cored and sliced thin
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp brown sugar
1 tsp AP flour
1 tsp crushed pistachios
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place tortilla on a baking sheet. Mix apple slices, sugar, and cinnamon in a microwave-safe bowl. Cook in the microwave for 1 minute, or until softened slightly.
Place apple slices onto the tortilla, in whatever design you choose.
In a small bowl, combine flour and brown sugar. Sprinkle onto the apples, then follow with crushed pistachios.
Bake pizza for 4 minutes on the baking sheet, then transfer directly to the rack to cook for additional 2-3 minutes, or until tortilla is crisp. Remove from the oven, cut into four slices and serve.
