Clean out your Big Green Egg, remove any ash from the pit and load with new lump charcoal

Setup your Big Green Egg for indirect cooking – add the convEGGtor with the legs facing up and add the pizza stone
Allow the pizza dough to warm up, covered, at room temp, for 1-1.5 hours or until soft
Stretch the pizza dough to make a 10” Pizza
Lightly flour your pizza peel
Lay the dough on the pizza peel
Quickly Build as follows:
1 - Pizza Dough
2 – Spread the Cherry pie filling leaving 1” border
3 – Layer the sliced apple
4 – Top with the streusel topping
Once the temp reaches 550-600 degrees, BURP the Egg and open the lid slowly
Launch the pizza into the center of the pizza stone and shut the dome
Let the pizza cook for approx. 7 minutes
Burp the egg and open the dome
Check the crust edge for firmness, if it is firm proceed with the next step.  If not firm, cook for an additional minute
Brush the edge of the crust with the melted butter, then dust with the cinnamon sugar
Cook for an additional 6 minutes, or more if you desire darker crust
BURP the Egg and open the lid, and remove the pizza when done
Place onto your cutting board and cut into 8 slices
Drizzle with slightly warm caramel sauce and eat
Goes GREAT with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top
