Apple Pizza


2  1/3 to 3 cups all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup butter, cubed

Apple Topping:
4 cups sliced peeled tart apples
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Cheese Topping:
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons caramel ice cream topping

2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup cold butter, cubed

1. In a large bowl, combine 1-1/2 cups flour, sugar, yeast and salt. In a saucepan, heat water, milk and butter to 120°-130°. Add to dry ingredients; beat for 2 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a firm dough. Turn onto a floured surface; cover and let rest for 15 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook and stir apples in butter over medium heat for 2 minutes. Combine the sugar, flour and cinnamon; stir into skillet. Cook 3 minutes longer. Reduce heat to low; cook, uncovered, for 4-6 minutes or until apples are tender, stirring frequently.
3. In a small bowl, combine the cheese topping ingredients.
4. For streusel, in a small bowl, combine flour and sugar; cut in butter until crumbly.
5. Pat dough onto a greased 14-in. pizza pan, building up edges slightly. Spread with cheese topping, then apple topping. Sprinkle with streusel.
6. Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until crust is golden brown.  
Serve warm or cold.
