If you have ever made homemade pizza you might find yourself with a little extra dough on hand. The easiest thing to do would be to just toss it, after all it is very cheap to make. However, you should try using it to make a dessert instead. And this one only takes a few minutes to toss together.

Pizza Dough
1 Tbs Corn Meal
20 oz Can Apple pie Filling
2 Tb Brown Sugar
1/4 c Powdered Sugar
1+ Tbs Milk

I make my own pizza dough as it is very cheap, but it becoming much easier to find in the grocery store. Some pizzerias will even sell a batch of their dough if you have a favorite. I never measure how much dough I need, I use whatever is left from making dinner. A batch of my dough will make about 9 individual pizzas and 2 large regular pizzas. If you are going to make a smaller dessert pizza you can use the small cans of apple pie filling just as easily.

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. If you are making a pizza right now, you just leave the oven temp where it is. Roll the pizza dough out to fit on a cookie sheet. Even if you like thin crust pizza you don’t want this crust to be so thin you can see light through it. Sprinkle the corn meal onto the pan and lay the pizza dough flat. The easiest way to transport it after being rolled out is to fold the dough in half and then move it. Par bake the crust for 5 minutes on the middle rack. This means you begin the cooking process but it is not quite finished before starting the next step.

While the dough is cooking, use a fork or pastry knife to cut up the apple pie filling. You do not want to create mush, but small pieces. I use a no sugar added variety as the apples provide enough natural sweetness I believe.

Remove the pizza dough and pour the filling on top. Sprinkle with the brown sugar and bake an additional 3 minutes or the crust is a golden brown.

Meanwhile, combine the confectioners sugar and milk until you have a consistency that will drizzle. Remove the pizza from the oven and drizzle the sugar frosting on top and serve.
