"Feta cheese, fresh thyme and apples are delicious together on lightly fried pizza dough."

Original recipe yield: 8 small pizzas

6 1/2 ounces dry pizza crust mix
1/2 cup hot water
5 tablespoons olive oil
8 ounces crumbled feta cheese
1 red onion, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
1/2 tablespoon butter
4 apples, cored and chopped
ground black pepper to taste

In a medium bowl, combine contents of the pizza dough package and 1/2 cup hot water. Stir vigorously, about 25 strokes. Set the bowl in a warm place (about 85 degrees F, or 35 degrees C) for 5 minutes. Turn dough onto floured board, divide the dough into 8 small sections. Knead the dough and shape it into rounds.
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
In a large skillet, heat the olive oil. Add the dough and fry until the dough is lightly browned, flipping once to brown on both sides. Once cooked, place the circles on a cookie sheet. Sprinkle the feta, red onion, and thyme on top of the circles.
Bake the pizzas until the feta begins to brown, about 10 to 12 minutes.
While the pizzas bake, in the previously used skillet, heat 1/2 tablespoon of butter and a few sprigs of thyme. Mix the apples into the skillet, and cook until the apples are soft and golden. Lay the apples on top of the pizzas, season with pepper, and serve.
