Recently I was able to take a trip to the Duncan Hines Test Kitchen. I was thrilled beyond belief! We spent the day learning about Duncan Hines and being truly inspired by their chef, Joe! My big take away was to try new things and experiment! I was also extremely impressed to see the importance this company places on being innovative and their dedication to provide quality products. Amazing!

Apple Fruit Pizza With Spice Crust

Crust (two pizza crusts)
1 Duncan Hines Spice Cake Mix
4 Tablespoons Butter (melted)
4 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
2 Tablespoons Water
2 Eggs

1 Can Comstock Apple Pie Filling

Crumb Topping (topping for two pizzas)
1/2 Cup Flour
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
2 Tablespoon Cold Butter
Mix flour, brown sugar and butter together until crumbly.

For crust mix together; cake mix, melted butter, brown sugar, water and eggs. This mixture makes two pizza crusts. Press half the mixture into a 12 inch pizza pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Lightly spray a piece of plastic wrap and place sprayed side down on dough and press into pan. The mixture is sticky and this trick will help get the job done!

  1. I don’t think that we can get Duncan Hines products in Australia but I just love the idea of a fruit pizza. I will have to look for other suitable cake mixes!

  2. This pizza sounds like a winner to me! Your trip sounds like it fun and a great learning experience.

  3. We ate it warm out of the oven. It would be great with ice cream. It is also yummy at room temperature (I had another slice today!)
