Sweet caramelized onions and apples, smokey bacon and creamy fontina cheese with whole wheat dough. This caramelized onion, apple and bacon flatbread pizza is a delicious meal or appetizer for the thin crust pizza lover.
Today is pizza pie day or National Pizza Day, either way, it’s a great reason to eat pizza. I know, it seems that there’s a food holiday for everything now, but you must admit, today is a good one.
I like to use whole wheat flour for this recipe because I think it just gives the dough a great nutty taste. Now, this is not your average pizza dough, because there no yeast. The reason there’s no yeast is because it is flatbread and I don’t want the dough to rise I want it to stay thin and crisp.
The recipe for the dough makes 2 – 10 x 5 inch oblong flatbreads, which is enough for 2 people. The other half of the dough can be frozen for later use.
I love the combination of the sweet caramelized onions along with the sweet apples. I love using apples in savory recipes because it brings out their natural sweetness when you cook them. I discovered this when I made maple glazed sweet potatoes and apples. With crispy, smokey, salty bacon, the flavors all all complement each other so well. I used fontina cheese because it’s very creamy and it melts really well.
