Frequent Asked Questions and Tips: 

Tip- How to keep apples from browning- When using apples, I always slice or dice my apples first then  soak in 1-2 tablespoons of lemon juice and 2 cups of water for about 5 minutes. After soaking drain  lemon water and rinse. This will keep apples from browning for 3 days. 

  1. Can I make this dessert ahead of time? I would say yes partially, I would wait to put on the diced  apples right before serving. 
  2. Do I really need to add all the ingredients to the sugar cookie dough? You could omit the pecans,  brown sugar, and cinnamon BUT this does really make the pizza. This crust brings this caramel  pizza to life. 
  3. Can I use red apples? Sure, can! I grew up with green apples dipped into caramel, so that is my  go too.
  4.  Can I use a different nut besides pecans? Sure, can!
