Fire Roasted Apples

Serves 6

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes

There's nothing like taking a trip to go apple picking on a crisp autumn day, and the spoils of the trip make it all worth while. Apples are delicious on their own, but nothing beats roasting an apple over the grill. The fruit caramelizes as it blends with the flavors of cinnamon and brown sugar. Pair it with a scoop of ice cream to have a perfect autumn dessert!


  • 6 large baking apples, Braeburn, Jonagold, Fuji or Honey Crisp
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 stick of unsalted butter, softened
  • 1½ tsp. cinnamon, ground
  • 3/4 cup golden raisins
  • 1/2 cup pecans or walnuts, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup water


Preheat the pizza oven to 450 - 500°F. Watch this short video to show you how to get your pizza oven started.

Allow larger pieces of wood to catch fire and turn into hot embers. This may take around 30 to 45 minutes to form.

Watch the oven, and once it is around 375°F it is ready to go.

While the pizza oven is preheating, wash and core the apples with a melon baller.

Make sure to leave enough of the core at the base in tact to prevent the filling from spilling out.

Combine the softened butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, raisins and chopped nuts.

Fill each apple evenly with the mixture.

Fill the Bull Non-Stick Square Grill Pan with the water. There should be enough so that the base of the apples are covered.

Carefully place the apples into the Bull Pizza Oven and close the oven with the lid, creating an oven.

Using the Pro Perforated Peel that comes in the Professional Kit, check the apples at 45 minutes. They are done once soft, make sure not to cook too long turning mushy. If using a extra large apple, they may take up to an hour total.

Serve the apples with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, top them with some chocolate syrup and roughly chopped toasted pecans.
