This recipe won first place in the dessert category, 1997, for Mama Mary's Gourmet Pizza crust creations contest. Pizza for dessert? Why not? Simply top a prepared pizza crust with sautéed apples and a buttery streusel topping and pop it in the oven. An easy icing drizzled over the top is the finishing touch.Source: Unknown
