  • 1 can Pillsbury™ refrigerated Classic Pizza Crust
  • 2/3 cup orange marmalade
  • 1 small Granny Smith apple, cored, sliced 1/8-inch thick
  • 6 slices Havarti cheese, cut in 1/4-inch slices
  • 1 lb sausage, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/3 cup sweetened dried cranberries


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line 15×10-inch baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. Unroll dough in pan. Press dough almost to edges of pan. Spread 1/3 cup of marmalade down center of dough. Top with apple slices, half of the cheese, the sausage, the remaining cheese, half the pecans, and half the cranberries.
  3. Make cuts 1 inch apart on long sides of dough to within 1/2 inch of filling. Fold strips of dough diagonally over filling, alternating from side to side, stretching dough as needed. Bake 15 minutes.
  4. Spread the remaining 1/2 cup marmalade over the top and sides of the partially baked braid. Bake an additional 10 to 15 minutes longer until golden brown. Serve warm.
