Applesauce Pizza

You maybe thinking that doesn't sound good, but I was not referring to a regular lunch pizza. Breakfast is usually my most creative time; one because its usually when I have planned to bake to save money and two because its fun to have something a little different sometimes. This time was a success. I was kind of doubtful but hopeful at the same time that it would turn out like I was imagining.
Right off Zebedee was excited when he woke up so I was almost certain that this breakfast was going to be a winner. (he is hard to please)  As I was putting together the ingredients his voice was filled with wonder at what this concoction was going to be. He knew it was going to have applesauce somewhere down the road and that made him happy. Then when I started putting the dough onto the cookie sheet ad pizza pan I could just see he was going to have a great time eating the results.

Applesauce Pizza for 8

51/2 cups of flour (we used wheat and a little white to keep it from being too sticky)
about a 1/2 cup of natural sweetener (we used palm sugar with water mixed)
51/2 tsp. of baking powder
2 tsp. of salt
2 1/2 tsp of vanilla (or if you are like me two caps full of imitation vanilla)
2 to 3 c. of water depending on how wet or dry your dough is.

1 15oz can of applesauce (unsweetened)

Set your oven for 400 degrees. Stir all of the dry ingredients with your hands or a wooden spoon. Add the wet ingredients and stir until everything is well blended into the dough. Add a little extra powdering of flour if it is too sticky. Spray your pans with cooking spray, butter or oil whatever is on hand and press the dough into the pans until there is a little lip on the outside of the dough. It doesn't have to fill in the whole pan especially large, just so you have it pressed fairly even and there is a little wall like lip on the outside of your dough like a hand tossed or pan pizza. Bake your pizza for about 6-10 minutes. Take the pizza out and pour half or your apple sauce can on one pizza and the other half on the other one and spread all over. Cut into pizza shapes and enjoy.
