A savory take on the tradition of apple pie with Real California Cheddar cheese. The deep, rich flavor of an 18-month aged Real California Cheddar really stands up to the aromatic intensity of toasted cumin and the sweet-tart taste of red: and green apples.

Spread pizza sauce thinly over crust; sprinkle evenly with half the Mozzarella. Sprinkle with 1 oz. of the apples, reserving the most colorful for garnish. Sprinkle Cheddar and remaining Mozzarella on top; dust with cumin. Bake at 475°F until crust has golden edge and crisp bottom and cheese is slightly browned. Sprinkle with remaining apples.
