If you're a fan of apple pie, you're going to love this dessert pizza. It features a sugar cookie crust topped with creamy frosting, chopped nuts and apple pie filling — lots of it! The pizza also calls for caramel sauce, which adds a rich and buttery flavor to the dish. Enjoy it during the fall and winter holidays or whenever you're craving a sweet treat.
Things You'll Need
1 batch sugar cookie dough
2 cups (16 ounces)
cream cheese frosting
2 1/4 cups apple pie filling
1/3 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
1/2 cup caramel sauce, plus more as needed
Feel free to use homemade or store-bought cookie dough.
Preheat the oven according to the sugar cookie recipe's directions. Meanwhile, press the dough onto a nonstick pizza pan, spreading it into an even layer.

To make this step easier, break up the dough into large chunks and then flatten each piece with a floured rolling pin. Add the pieces to the pizza pan and then press them together with your fingers.
Bake until the edges are golden brown and the center starts turning gold. The exact timing will depend on your recipe, so be sure to keep a close watch on the cookie.
Let it cool for about 1 hour.
In a bowl, combine the cream cheese frosting and 1/4 cup caramel sauce. Taste it and add more caramel sauce if you'd like.
Spread the frosting onto the cooled cookie.
Top with apple pie filling and chopped walnuts.
Drizzle caramel sauce on top and then slice with a pizza cutter. Enjoy with vanilla ice cream or as is!
