  1. 3 Honey Crisp Apples, peeled, cored and cut into 8 wedges each
  2. 3 Tbsp. Butter
  3. 3 Tbsp. Granulated Sugar
  4. 1 tsp. Lemon Juice
  5. 1/2 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
  6. 1-2 cups Canola or Vegetable Oil
  7. 1/2 pkg. Nino's Artisan Pizza Dough
  8. As Desired - Cinnamon Sugar (1/2 cup Granulated Sugar + 1 tsp. Ground Cinnamon)
  9. Optional - Vanilla Ice Cream
  1. In a medium size non-stick fry pan over medium high heat, saute apples in butter until softened and lightly caramelized. Add 3 Tbsp. granulated sugar, lemon juice and cinnamon. Cook 2 minutes then remove from the heat and reserve.
  2. Open packaged Nino's Artisan Pizza Dough and cut in half.
  3. Using one half of the dough only, cut that half in half and roll each piece into a 6" to 7" round disk on a lightly floured surface.
  4. Heat oil on medium high (350 F) in a fry or sauce pan just slightly larger than the diameter of your pizza dough disks.
  5. Fry each dough on both sides until medium brown then roll in cinnamon sugar (like a doughnut) immediately after they are removed from the hot oil.
  6. Divide the seared apples between the 2 fried dough rounds and optionally serve with vanilla ice cream.
