Barely Buzzed Apple & Bacon Pizza
8” pizza - Serves 2-3 people
Recipe and photo by Beehive staffer Katie Johnson

•   Pizza dough of your choice - store bought or homemade*
•   Pizza sauce - store bought or homemade red** or Alfredo sauce
•   2 tablespoon butter
•   ½ of a medium yellow onion cut into half rings
•   2 tablespoon pine nuts
•   Pinch of salt
•   1 teaspoon sugar (optional)
•   3-4 slices bacon
•   ½ an apple sliced into wedges about 1/8” thick – Choose a crisp medium-high acid apple
•   3-4 tablespoons of cornmeal
•   1 cup of Barely Buzzed (depending on how cheesy you like your pizza)

Directions
                                                        Preheat the oven to 450°F.

                                                        In a sauté pan, heat butter on medium-high. Add onion and stir to coat
                                                        with the butter. Spread onions out evenly and let cook, stirring occasion-
                                                        ally. Cook on medium-high heat for a minute or so and then lower heat to
                                                        medium-low allowing onions to cook slowly and turn a translucent brown.
                                                        Pine nuts should be browning as well. After 10 minutes, sprinkle some
                                                        salt over the onions, and if you want, add a pinch of sugar to help with the
                                                        caramelization process. Cook for about 15 minutes longer. Add a splash of
                                                        water to the pan if the onions start to dry out. Set aside when onions have
                                                        finished.

                                              Cook 3-4 slices of bacon until crisp on stovetop or in microwave. Let cool
                                              and then chop to ½” x ½” chunks.
                                              Stretch/roll your pizza dough to about the size of an 8” pizza round. Use a
little flour or cornmeal to prevent sticking during the stretching/rolling process. If you’re going to attempt making your
dough, I recommend Bobby Flay’s Food Network recipe. Start your homemade pizza dough at least 1 ½ hours before
you’re ready to bake, since the dough must rise before baking.

Sprinkle corn meal on the baking sheet to prevent sticking. Place the stretched dough directly on the baking sheet.
Spoon and spread pizza sauce over dough. Add as much or as little sauce as you like. Sprinkle Barely Buzzed cheese to
desired cheesiness. Add the pizza toppings: apple slices, bacon, caramelized onions and pine nuts.

Bake pizza at 450°F for 12-16 minutes depending on the dough thickness. Place on a rack in the lower third of your
oven. Keep an eye on your pizza and turn occasionally to prevent uneven cooking. When done, the crust should be
brown and the cheese a golden brown color. If you wish, add a little extra Barely Buzzed after it comes out of the oven.
*I recommend Bobby Flay’s Food Network recipe found at http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/bobby-flay/pizza-dough-recipe/index.html.

**For my homemade pizza sauce I use a food processor to blend 10 ounces of tomato paste, a dollop of pesto, 1 clove garlic, fresh oregano and
thyme, 1/4 cup tomato sauce, olive oil, salt and pepper. Add a little more olive oil and tomato sauce until you get the right viscosity for you. I like a
thick sauce, so mine is like paste. It’s all up to you!
