Apple Turnover - Strudel...using left over pizza dough.

Here's a delicious and fast way you can make some scrumptious dessert with some leftover pizza dough. I can tell you your family will enjoy this just as much as mine does! I always make sure to have some extra dough for a little dessert after dinner.

Here we go! This is a very simple recipe and I can tell you that you will be making this often, for sure! You can make it as a strudel or twisted cinnamon knots- some fun bites for the kids!!

The best part is most of these ingredients are most likely already in your kitchen.

  2. Stretch out our dough to your desired shape, let it be round or rectangular in shape, approximately 1/4 inch in thickness.

  3. Place your stretched out dough onto a piece of parchment paper, and then onto a baking sheet.

  7. Gently flip the left side of the dough towards the right side, covering your apples, and then flipping the right side over to the left side.

  8. With a sharp knife cut slits on top of your strudel and place into a preheated 400F oven for 25 minutes.
