12. Adjust the consistency with a little extra cream if it is too stiff, or icing sugar if it is too wet.

Chef Notes

  • For a quick and easy deep dish dessert pizza, grab a ball of pizza dough from the deli or bakery section of your local supermarket.
  • Granny smiths are perfect for this recipe because of their firm texture and their sweet and sour flavour that will balance the sweetness of the recipe.
