Apple pie pizza makes a great hand held dessert to finish off any meal on the grill. Top it off with a cream cheese icing drizzle or serve with vanilla ice cream for a more decadent dessert.
This dessert pizza was a huge hit with our whole family and was even better than the dessert pizzas from the pizza joint that we all love.
