Don’t think that just because we enjoyed a comforting meatloaf Sunday Supper last weekend that we’re not devouring pizza. Because we are. Honestly we make pizza about every other Sunday and we made our first “fall” pizza a couple of Sundays ago. I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to share the deliciousness with you.
The flavor combination is out of this world. Don’t be scared of apples on a savory pizza! And you jazz up “boring” bacon (let’s be honest, bacon is never boring) with fresh rosemary and pepper before cooking until crisp in the oven. By the way, cooking bacon in the oven is so much cleaner than on the stovetop. Instead of sprinkling the pizza with mozzarella, you actually make a cheese sauce that goes ALL over the pizza. The sauce starts with sautéing onion and garlic in a little bit of butter and then adding flour to make a roux. Then you add in broth, milk and oregano and allow it to thicken before adding in shredded fresh mozz. Oh, so creamy and dreamy. Check the salt content – ours needed a big pinch.
Let’s make a pizza! Roll out your homemade (or store-bought – no judgement here) dough and top with the sauce leaving a little border around the outside. Now arrange the apple (golden delicious worked perfectly) slices all over the dough and then sprinkle on the chopped, cooked bacon. Finally, add the shredded cheddar (we used a chipotle cheddar which was a very good idea).
I instantly fell in love with this pizza.
Sweet and tart yet salty and cheese. Amazing.
If you haven’t gotten on the Sunday pizza train yet, please do.
