A Fall Delight: Bacon, Apple, and Sweet Potato Pizza

Indulge in the Irresistible Delights of Bacon, Apple, & Sweet Potato Pizza for a Perfect Cozy Night In

Bacon, Apple, and Sweet Potato Pizza

Bacon, apple, and sweet potato pizza is featured on this weekend’s Cozy Night In menu.

Hey there, pizza lovers! Let’s talk about something vital: pizza is a year-round delicacy. But, imagine a pizza that embodies the essence of autumn, with flavors so enchanting that they transport you to a cozy fall wonderland. Picture this: a crispy crust, topped with succulent slices of bacon, thinly sliced apples and onions, and the pièce de résistance – thinly roasted sweet potato chips. Hungry yet? I thought so!

If you’re familiar with my pizza obsession, you know I like to experiment with unconventional toppings. And this time, I’ve truly outdone myself. I’ve created a heavenly combination of flavors that will blow your taste buds away. It’s a little decadent, a lot delicious, and perfect for this time of year.

But before we dive into the recipe, we need to start with a perfectly pliable and stretchy dough. I’ve been using my homemade pizza dough recipe for over a decade, and it never fails to impress. Thaw it in the fridge overnight, let it rest on the counter, and get ready to work some pizza magic.

Now, let the stretching begin! Rolling out the dough is a no-no. Stretching it with your fingertips gives you that chewy, crispy crust we all love. Follow the technique described in the Gje-lina cookbook (yes, I’m fancy like that): press your fingers into the dough, extending outward to form a small disk. Keep pressing and turning until you have a 10 to 12-inch thin dough that’s as delicate as a newspaper.

And here’s a pro tip: don’t be afraid to sprinkle flour everywhere while kneading and stretching. Embrace the mess, my friends!

Now, let’s talk toppings! We’re diving into unconventional territory with our star ingredient – sweet potatoes. But fear not, my lovely fashionistas, because thin is in! Slice those sweet potatoes as thin as you can (a mandoline works wonders), along with apples and red onions. Layer them on your dough canvas and create a colorful masterpiece. And wait, there’s more! Creamy goat cheese, melty mozzarella, crispy bacon, and fried sage leaves enter the scene. It’s like a fashion show for your taste buds.

Just one secret: there’s no need for pizza sauce here. The flavors of apple, bacon, sweet potato, and cheese create an ensemble that needs no additional members. They’re the supermodels of the pizza world, stealing the spotlight with every bite.

Speaking of fried sage leaves, let’s make them the star accessory of this autumn extravaganza. These crispy delights are so addictive; they deserve their own red carpet. Heat some olive oil, sprinkle in the sage leaves, and fry them to perfection. Trust me, you’ll want to use them on everything – from pasta to roasted butternut squash.

And now, the grand finale! When your pizza emerges from the oven, golden brown and oozing with cheese, top it with those gorgeous fried sage leaves, a drizzle of olive oil, and a sprinkle of flaky salt. Picture-perfect and absolutely mouthwatering.

So, my fellow fashionistas of food, why wait? It’s time to indulge in the ultimate fall delight – the Bacon, Apple, and Sweet Potato Pizza. You can use store-bought crust if you’re short on time, or opt for gluten-free or vegan alternatives if that’s your style. The possibilities are endless when it comes to pizza, and I’m here to celebrate them all.

Bacon, Apple, and Sweet Potato Pizza

Description: This sweet potato pizza with bacon, apple, and fried sage leaves is bursting with fall flavors. It’s an autumn pizza made for cozy nights.

Ingredients:

Units
1 ball pizza dough (enough to make a 10-12” pizza)
1 large clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for frying
1 small sweet potato, peeled
1 apple, peeled
1/2 red onion, peel discarded
2-3 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
4 ounces mozzarella
4 ounces goat cheese crumbles
12 sage leaves
Flaky salt, like Maldon

Instructions:

  1. Preheat a pizza stone on the bottom rack of a 500 F oven for at least 20 minutes.
  2. Make garlic butter by combining minced garlic, melted butter, and olive oil. Set aside.
  3. Thinly slice the sweet potato, apple, and red onion using a mandoline. Set aside.
  4. On a well-floured pizza peel, stretch your pizza dough to a 10-12” round.
  5. Spread garlic butter in a thin layer on top of your pizza, evenly distributing the garlic. Top with bacon, sweet potato, apple, and red onion slices.
  6. Tear the mozzarella into pieces and sprinkle it over the ingredients, followed by the goat cheese crumbles.
  7. Quickly open the oven door and slide the pizza onto the hot pizza stone, working swiftly to preserve the oven’s heat. Cook for 10 minutes.
  8. Meanwhile, make fried sage: In a small sauté pan, add enough olive oil to cover the bottom by 1/2”. Heat over medium-high until it sizzles when you add a drop of water. Carefully place sage leaves in a single layer and fry for 1 minute. Transfer the sage to a paper towel-lined plate to remove excess oil.
  9. When the pizza is golden brown on the edges and the cheese is melted, use your pizza peel to slide it out of the oven.
  10. Slice into wedges, then top your pizza with fried sage leaves, a drizzle of olive oil, and a sprinkle of flaky salt. Enjoy!
