We all know that when the weather gets cold, out come the comfy sweaters, insane amounts of hot chocolate, and fluffy socks. Well that was my weekend to a T (except instead of hot chocolate I chose a warm apple and bacon pizza–boy was that a good choice).If you’re ever stumped on deciding what to eat, go with pizza (can’t you tell by the numb of my posts revolve around pizza???). This Apple and Bacon Pita Pizza was the perfect amount of cheesy and crispy goodness. And wait did I mention it was covered in bacon? Oh yeah, that happened.
All you’ll need is:
- 4 whole wheat pitas
- 2 tsp. olive oil
- 1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
- 2 c. thinly sliced Fuji apple
- 3 tbsp. grated Parmesan
- 2 tbsp. chopped walnuts
- 1 tsp. fresh thyme
- 2 slices of applewood-smoked bacon (chopped and and cooked)
Once you have all your ingredients, let the pizza making begin! Start by pre-heating your broiler to high. Broil those pitas until they are lightly golden (about 1 min.). Once done, remove, flip, and brush with olive oil. Then sprinkle the shredded cheddar over the pitas and arrange the apple slices. After you’ve beautifully arranged your apple slices, sprinkle the Parmesan cheese, walnuts, thyme and bacon on top. Return your pizza to the oven and broil for another 1-2 min. As soon as those few minutes are up–take that sucker out and enjoy!
Trust me, you’ll be using the size of the pita as an excuse to wolf down another one. What I love is that you can put any sort of toppings you want atop a pita–I think my next combo will involve pesto, mozzarella and prosciutto, but hey that’s just me thinking out loud 🙂 Perfect for a cold day in bed–test them out and let me know what toppings you decided to try. But until next time, keep eating!
