What you'll need

  • cooking spray
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 ½ tablespoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 cup pecans, chopped
  • 2 (11 ounce) packages of Pillsbury Thin Crust Pizza Dough
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Helpful Tip:

These bars are delicious served with a dollop of whipped cream, or drizzled with a little white or dark chocolate to add a finishing touch.

How to make it

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spray a 10-11-inch spring form pan with cooking spray and set side.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine sugar, pumpkin pie spice, and pecans. Stir until everything is well combined.
  4. Lightly flour a surface and roll out both pieces of pizza dough, side by side.
  5. Brush each piece of dough with melted butter. Sprinkle sugar/pecan mixture over each of the pieces of dough, leaving a 1- inch border around the edge.
  6. Roll up both pieces of dough into a log, jell-roll style. Trim off the ends of each roll to make them neat, and then cut each roll into about 15 (1-inch pieces).
  7. Place each piece of dough side by side in concentric circles into the prepared pan.
  8. Bake for 30 - 35 minutes or until bread is lightly browned. Serve warm.
