So I get it.  You might be saying apple butter?  On pizza?  That’s pretty much what the Tall Boy said, too.  And then he tried this.  And let me tell you, Apple Butter Pizza with Prosciutto and Arugula = a good thing.  A really really good thing.

So good, in fact, we’ve had it twice in the last week.

I almost always have a jar of apple butter hanging out in my fridge, since my 6-year old loves to slather it on toast and bagels (and, I might have been known to eat some right off the spoon, but that’s just between you and me, okay?).  I also love using it in appetizers , for sandwiches, and for breakfast, but today we’re talking about pizza.

For this recipe, I used my homemade whole wheat pizza dough.  Personally, I love the nuttiness of the whole-wheat dough paired with the sweet apple butter.  That said, the apple butter wasn’t nearly as sweet on this as I had anticipated. There was definitely a hint of sweetness, but paired with the smokiness of the proscuitto and the peppery arugula, it was simply perfect.

The pizza that is absolutely, unequivocally the best pizza I’ve ever eaten.  Well, until the next time I made a homemade pizza, because I’m fickle that way.
