Boy does this bring back memories... This is a great updated healthier version of a childhood favorite and using whole wheat pizza dough is a great option. Not only is it fun to make, but fun t...

Add 3 Granny Smith apples peeled, cored, chopped & tossed throughout.

Really tasty. I only had one roll of whole wheat pizza dough, so I made this in a loaf pan.. baked for about 25 minutes. added the nuts, but no raisins..
