Have you missed me? I've been lazy. I'm still feeling lazy, so this post will be short and simple. I have continued doing a home made pizza every week (often two) and I'm sorry to say you've missed some really good ones. But this week, you won't want to miss: Bacon!

I guess bacon is all the rage right now. I even saw a blog post for Bacon Bourbon Brownies. (recipe here) Now, why I would want to ruin my bacon with chocolate is beyond me; but for those of you who like chocolate (I know, I'm the crazy one here), this might be for you! Usually, I just like my bacon slow cooked with brown sugar and fresh ground black pepper. I could eat a whole pound like that! For this reason, I never cook more than 1/2 pound at a time.

Feeling this bacon craving tonight, I decided bacon would go on my pizza. I also had ham from Easter in the freezer and pineapple is always good on pizza... but a Hawaiian pizza wasn't really what I was in the mood for. So I put the ham and pineapple on pizza sauce with some mixed cheese and baked that up for the kiddos.

For me, I tossed the bacon into the frying pan, sprinkled brown sugar and pepper. Drain of the grease, but don't wipe it out. Add some sliced onion. Slice up an apple and toss it in to fry. That was spread on my crust, then I had balsamic vinaigrette enter my mind so that was drizzled on top. Too bad I don't have any brie, cheddar will have to do. Although now that I think about it, I do have feta. Would feta have been good on bacon and apples? I'll have to try that next time. Baked it all up and...YUM!! I had two more pieces after I was full! That was it. Simple. Enjoy!
