who else is glad the elections are over?! …no more one side or the other. …this party or that. well, if savory and sweet were political parties, this recipe would win all of the votes. (if only bacon could be president…)
if you remember, there was that pizza that i once saw at my local whole foods that urgently forced me into the kitchen to make my own gluten-free version. well, it happened again. while walking through the store, near their brick-oven pizza station, i spotted a caramelized onion, bacon and apple pizza! wow… yum! i think i’m going to be bold enough to say that mine may even be better. of course, i didn’t try to wheat version, but i still think i’m right. the salted maple drizzle puts this one over the top.
if you’re having a hard time waiting for your bountiful thanksgiving table or just need something to get you in the holiday mood, go here. make this pizza. so many delicious flavors of the season all rolled into one easy, mouth-watering pizza.
