Pizza Dough Apple Hand Pies Recipe @

These  Pizza  Dough Apple Hand Pies  are  made from yeast free pizza dough.  I follow this  recipe with slight changes.  Omitted dry milk and use evaporated milk instead.

The crust is less buttery since we are using 5 tablespoon of melted butter/oil when compared with regular pie crust.   This suits for those looking for lightened up pie crust that was flavorful,  easy to handle and bake beautifully.

Cut  the apple into a half inch  cubes then coat  with the rest of the ingredients for the filling. You will get some liquid after some time, only scoop the apple but leave behind the liquid  when stuffing the hand pies.

Any variety of apple such as red delicious,  gala or  macintosh  can be used instead of granny smith. Another tip is to bake these Pizza Dough Apple Hand Pies on the lowest rack of the oven for 10 minutes,  This trick  ensures a nicely cooked, never soggy bottom.

Yield  :  10

2 1/4 cup plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
5 tablespoon oil/melted butter
3/4 cup evaporated  milk
1/2 tsp salt

3 granny smith apple cored and cubed
3 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon


Combine all the above ingredients, keep refrigerated until ready to use


Whisk together  flour, baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl.

Add  in  oil/butter and  milk until it forms into soft dough.

Cover and let the dough rest for  at least 30 minutes.


Divide the dough into half, keep the other half covered. Roll out dough into 1/8 in thick.

Make a slit with a knife on top of the crust and place into baking sheet. Repeat with the rest of the dough. Preheat oven @ 185 C.

Brush with butter and bake for  10 minutes on the lowest rack then transfer to middle rack  for another 29-25 minutes or  until golden brown.

Let stand to cool slightly before serving.

Beautiful hand-pie!! My family loves everything with apples so I'd love to try your recipe.
Is is possible to use low-fat cream, instead of evaporated milk ??
