Apple, Bacon, and Gouda Pizza

I LOVE pizza, like love-love-love it. I could eat it 7 days a week for breakfast lunch and dinner if it didn’t make my ass look like cottage cheese aka BAD cellulite. Problem is, if my fiance was more of a fan of it, I WOULD eat it seven days a week. I have an obsession, and sadly (& thankfully) he doesn’t like it..I know, hes weird, un-American, what person, what guy, doesn’t loove pizza..Ill never understand it..

Since I live in a house with a man who will only eat a piece or two, I have to stop myself from eating the entire I try not to make it too often. However, this pizza was delicious! The flavors were subtle and fabulous together! Plus, anything with bacon and I’m all in! (you’ll noticed I used turkey should totally use the real deal if you’re not being all health conscience like me!! :P)

Happy Thursday folks! Enjoy this pizza while Brady & Tebow go head to head this weekend! 😉


Apple, Bacon, and Gouda Pizza


  • 1 pound pizza dough (I used this recipe)
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 10-12 slices turkey bacon, roughly chopped (you can use regular bacon too)
  • 1 honeycrisp apple, thinly sliced
  • 10 oz round, smoked gouda, freshly grated
  • 1/2 cup Asiago cheese, freshly grated
  • 7-8 sage leaves, chiffonaded
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • Salt & Pepper


  1. If you aren't using store-bought dough, make the dough. With the Fleischmanns pizza yeast, you don't need to let it rise! Yay!
  2. Pre-heat your oven to 425. If using a pizza stone, heat it up with the oven. If you don't have one, use a baking sheet, upside down, and heat that up!
  3. Heat up 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a skillet, add the onions and allow to cook for about 5 minutes, until they start to turn golden. Add the garlic, cook for a minute, remove from heat and set aside.
  4. In a separate pan start cooking your bacon until they start to crisp.
  5. While your bacon is cooking start rolling out your pizza dough into either a 12 inch circle, or a square to fit your baking sheet. ( I personally like thin, crispy crusts, but you can roll the thickness to your liking!) Toss the dough into the oven for no more than 2-3 minutes.
  6. Mix the remaining olive oil with the honey and brush it all over the pizza.
  7. Layer on half the gouda followed by half the apples, then remaining gouda and remaining apples. Top with the Asiago, bacon, and sage leaves.
  8. Bake for 12-15 minutes until the cheese is melted and the crust is golden brown.
