    50 minutes

    Not sure if pizza is the correct name for these delicious appetizers or tasty lunch. Pizza dough is fried before being baked with feta and onion then finally garnished with sautéed thyme apples.

    Serves: 8 

    • 200g packet dry pizza crust mix
    • 1/2 cup (125ml) hot water
    • 4 tablespoons olive oil
    • 250g feta cheese, crumbled

    Preparation:30min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:50min 

    1. In a medium bowl, combine contents of the pizza dough packet and 1/2 cup hot water. Stir vigorously, about 25 strokes. Set the bowl in a warm place (35 degrees C) for 5 minutes.
    2. Turn dough onto floured board and divide into 8 small sections. Knead the dough and shape it into rounds.
    3. Preheat the oven to 150 degrees C.
    4. In a large frying pan, heat the olive oil. Add the dough rounds and fry until lightly browned, flipping once to brown on both sides.
    5. Once cooked, place the rounds on a baking tray. Sprinkle the feta, red onion and thyme on top of the circles.
    6. Bake the pizzas until the feta begins to brown; about 10 to 12 minutes.
    7. While the pizzas bake, in the previously used frying pan heat the butter and thyme. Add the apples and cook until the apples are soft and golden.
    8. Lay the apples on top of the pizzas, season with pepper, and serve.

    This recipe- as it stands- works very well. It's almost professional, in fact- something that I could see served as a restaurant appetizer. A couple of suggestions, here- do make fresh pizza dough and _do_- fry it, as suggested. Do not deep fry, but pan fry. The dough takes on a completely different texture and flavor that really supports the flavors. I would suggest, also, sauteeing the apples until just done- and if they are not very sweet, adding a little sugar to bump that up. The apples should be _just_ on the sweet side. Finally, I would strongly consider blending the feta with a little bit of oil and spooning it on_top_ of the apples before baking. Feta cheese doesn't always melt very well. Making a sort of spread out of it will help enormously.  -  24 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Not a fan of frying anything, I opted to bake the dough. I put the apples and thyme on before baking, and then sprinkled the feta after baking. The cheese melted good and nice, and the flavors complemented each other beautifully!  -  17 Jul 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Interesting and good. I used a refridgerated crust instead of the mix. Next time I will also add fresh mozarella.  -  07 Jan 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
