Spread over crust in pan leaving a 1/4 - 1/2" edge for top and bottom crusts to seal together; cover with pie filling. Unroll second can of dough onto a sheet of waxed paper and roll out to 13x9-inch sheet ensuring seams are sealed completely. Invert wax paper over pie filling to create top crust. Discard wax paper.
