Ingredients

1 (1 pound) loaf plain ciabatta or focaccia

1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

8 cloves

3/4 cup packed light brown sugar

1 1/2 pounds Gala, Braeburn, or Pink Lady apples, peeled, cored, and cut into sixths

Ice cream or whipped cream, for serving

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 450 degrees F and arrange rack in the middle. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, place bread on top, and set aside.
  2. Melt butter in a large nonstick frying pan over medium heat. When foaming subsides, remove from heat, add vanilla, salt, and cloves and sprinkle sugar evenly into pan.
  3. Place apples in a single layer and return to stove. Cook over medium heat, turning apples once, until apples are knife tender, about 10 minutes. Arrange apples on bread and pour all but 1/4 cup caramel sauce on top. Bake in oven until caramel sauce bubbles and bread is heated through, about 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from oven, pour remaining caramel on apples and let pizza sit for 5 minutes before cutting. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream.
