Apple Cheddar Pizza With Bacon Recipe

This Apple Cheddar Pizza with bacon recipe is so good. Apples and cheddar cheese go together so well, and bacon makes everything better. My guys were skeptical the first time I made this pizza, but they gave it a try. Now they ask  for it on pizza night. It has a little sweetness from the apples and honey, but not too much. The saltiness from the cheese and bacon counters it very well. It is a great balance of flavors. and You notice that I am not a super pizza crust spinner, so ours is always a little rustic looking, but the flavor more than makes up for it.

As with all recipes part of the fun is in adjusting the ingredients and making it your own.

This one is fun to play with. The bacon can be substituted for toasted pecans which is a delicious variation. The cheeses can be changed around to your favorites, like white cheddar, muenster, or adding in a little smoked Gouda (my favorite). I used a package of Publix pizza dough for this one.  When I feel like making it myself I use the same dough recipe I used here in this Parmesan Herb Flatbread Recipe.
