This is a recipie that I originally got from a Pampered Chef cookbook, only I added more peanut butter to it, and soaked my apples in lemon juice to avoid them from turning brown.

My sister got this same recipe from her foods class. Everytime she makes it, it's a huge success! There are just a few slight differences between recipes. Her recipe calls for an 18 oz. roll of cookie dough, as I have seen in other recipes. Also, she used lemon lime soda in place of the lemon juice and topped the pizza with pecans. Great recipe!
