Apple Gouda Goat Cheese Pizza with Bacon & Honey Drizzle


  • 2/3 cup Sunrise Fresh Dried Apples
  • 1 store-bought flatbread pizza dough
  • 8 slices bacon, sliced
  • 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 8oz gouda cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup crumbled goat cheese
  • Honey to drizzle
  • Red pepper flakes to serve- optional


  1. Place the dried apples in a bowl and cover them with warm water. Let rehydrate for about 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  2. Preheat the oven to the pizza dough's package instructions.
  3. Meanwhile, heat a skillet over medium high heat. Add the sliced bacon and sliced shallot. Cook for about 5 minutes r until the bacon is crispy and golden. Remove onto a lined plate to drain any excess fat. Set aside.
  4. Drain and dry the re-hydrated apples. Place onto a cutting board and chop into bite-sized pieces.
  5. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and roll the dough into a large rectangle on the baking sheet.
  6. Drizzle the olive oil and minced garlic on top of the dough and spread evenly.
  7. Sprinkle the gouda and goat cheese evenly over the crust, followed by spreading the rehydrated apple pieces evenly over the cheese.
  8. Finish by spreading the cooked shallot and bacon over the apples. Bake according to package directions (usually around 15 minutes) until the crust is cooked through & golden brown and the cheese bubbling.
  9. Drizzle the cooked pizza with honey and sprinkle with red pepper flakes if desired.

**Note: baking time and thickness of pizza may vary depending on the type of dough you use.
