For the crust:

Trim dough to 14-inch diameter.

Transfer dough on parchment paper to large baking sheet (edges of dough may hang over edges of baking sheet).

Toss together plums, jam, vanilla, and allspice in large bowl until well mixed.

Mound plum mixture in center of dough, leaving 2½ to 3 inches border.

Sprinkle 2 tablespoons sugar over plums.

Fold dough border over fruit, pleating loosely and pinching to seal any cracks.

Sprinkle 1 tablespoon sugar over dough.

Bake until crust is brown and filling bubbles, 40 to 50 minutes.

Remove from the oven and transfer baking sheet to wire rack.
