This is no ordinary pizza pie my friend, this crust is made of sugar cookie dough. Store bought cookie mixes, pre-made tubes of dough, or even from scratch recipes are all welcome at this pizza party, just form it into a big circle the shape of a pizza pie then bake it to perfection! A whipped brown sugar and cream cheese spread provides a creamy, luscious, and rich base for your sweet-tart Stemilt apples.
