How To Make It
  • Combine warm water and yeast in a small bowl; set aside 5 minutes.
  • Combine apple juice, applesauce, sugar, egg replacer, salt, oil, and cinnamon in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix until well combined.
  • Add pizza crust mix, 1/4 cup at a time, until soft dough forms (you will not use all of mix). Turn dough out onto a work surface dusted with remaining pizza crust mix. Knead until dough is no longer sticky but still soft.
  • Roll dough to 1/4-inch thickness, and cut into 2×3-inch pieces. Set aside at room temperature for 20 minutes.
  • Pour enough oil into a deep-sided pot until it reaches 2 inches up sides; heat oil over medium heat to 350°F.
  • Lightly press beignets to flatten slightly.
  • Add a few beignets to oil; fry until golden brown on both sides, turning once.
  • Remove from hot oil with a slotted spoon and place on a baking sheet lined with paper towels.
  • Dust with a generous amount of confectioners’ sugar before serving.
