10. Caramel Apple Pizza

Caramel Apple Pizza

Some people think pizza automatically means savory. But we can always broaden our horizons, can't we? The Caramel Apple Pizza certainly thinks so, and it has the flavor to not just change minds, but hearts (and tastebuds)! A crumbly, tender, buttery sugar cookie crust lays the stage for diced, crispy, juicy apples and chocolate candies, which is already a great start. But it's the sauce that'll have you coming back again and again: creamy, tangy, with notes of rich caramel and the perfect amount of sweetness. Mmmm, Caramel Apple Pizza might sound like a fall or winter treat, but anytime you need a slice of something scrumptious, there's nothing better.

This combination of flavors would be fantastic all on its own... but then it gets even better with a gloriously fluffy peanut butter whipped cream topping. Doesn't the sound of that just make you feel happier? Peanut Butter Banoffee Pie brings a beloved dessert across the pond to a new and eager audience!
