Cinnamon Oat Crumble
Before making the dough, combine flour, brown sugar, oats, cinnamon, salt, and butter in small bowl using a fork. All of it should be wet. Place in the fridge to solidify while making the dough
In a large bowl, sift the flour and salt together. Set aside.
Using a mixer with a bread hook (see post for by hand instructions) mix the yeast, sugar, warm water, and oil together. Add in all of the flour. Mix on low until a dough starts to form. Then, turn to medium and let it mix for 5 minutes
Halfway through mixing, if the dough is super soft and sticky, add an extra ⅛ cup of flour at a time. Let it combine and see if that helps. Add another ⅛ cup until dough is only slightly tacky.
Spray a large mixing bowl with non-stick spray. Place dough in the bowl and cover with a kitchen towel. Let it rise for 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 475° and place the pizza stone in the oven. It needs to heat up the entire time to dough is rising. A hot stone is crucial to pizza baking.
Right after making the dough, core, peel, and slice the apples and place in a mixing bowl. Toss with lemon juice and sugar. Place the apples in a strainer to separate the juices while the dough rises.
Halfway through the dough rising, mix together the sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg.
In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Once the butter is melted add in the flour. Use a whisk and vigorously whisk and blend in the flour. Let it cook for 1 minute. Then, add in the apple cider immediately. Whisk right away. It will look like applesauce.
Add in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Whisk vigorously. It will appear dry at first. Then, as it cooks it will appear almost liquid. Cook it for about a minute. Take off the heat immediately.
Place drained apples in a mixing bowl. Pour the apple cider mixture over the apples and pour in vanilla. Use a rubber spatula to mix it together.
Making The Pizza
Prepare a piece of parchment paper (12X15 inches) and sprinkle a little bit of flour over it. Grab the pizza dough and use your fingers to knead the dough into a small circle. Once it can't spread any more by hand (at some point it will only spring back) lift up the dough by the edges and let the gravity stretch the dough. Go around all the edges.
Use your hands to form dough back into a circle. Then, grab the apples and place apples in a spiral pattern. Start with the edges and work your way in. Place all apples on pizza. If there is any thick apple cider mixture, sprinkle it over the apples, but leave any juices in the bowl.
Grab the oat crumble from the fridge. Sprinkle as much as your want over the apples.
Take pizza stone out of the oven. Place parchment paper with the pizza on a large cutting board and transfer to the pizza stone (include the parchment paper). Bake for 10-13 minutes. The pizza crust should be golden brown.
While the pizza is in the oven, start the ganache. In a small bowl spread the Nutella on the bottom evenly. Cut the butter into small chunks and spread evenly on top of the Nutella.
In a saucepan over medium-low heat, heat the heavy cream and corn syrup until hot and steaming. Pour over the Nutella. Make sure it is spread evenly. Cover the bowl with cling wrap. Let it sit for 5 minutes.
Then, use a rubber spatula and stir the ganache. It should be smooth. If there are any butter pieces remaining, heat in the microwave for 10 seconds and stir again.
Once the pizza is done baking, transfer back to the cutting board and remove parchment paper. Top with mini chocolate chips and drizzle the Nutella ganache. Serve immediately.
