  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F. Spray dark 15x10x1-inch pan with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In medium bowl, beat vinegar, oil, pepper and salt with whisk. Add Brussels sprouts and onion; toss to coat. Cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate.
  • 3
    In medium bowl, beat honey and lemon juice with whisk. Toss with apple to coat. Set aside.
  • 4
    Unroll dough; place in pan. Starting at center, press out dough to edges of pan. Bake about 7 minutes or until edges of crust just begin to turn golden brown. Meanwhile, in 10-inch nonstick skillet, cook Brussels sprouts mixture over medium-high heat about 5 minutes or until crisp-tender and beginning to brown. Remove from heat; set aside.
  • 5
    Top partially baked crust with apple slices in single layer, leaving 1/2-inch border around edges. Discard any extra honey mixture. Divide Brussels sprout mixture evenly over apples. Sprinkle with bacon and cheese.
  • 6
    Bake 8 to 12 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Cut and serve immediately.

Expert Tips

If you're not a fan of blue cheese, white Cheddar would make an excellent substitute.

Look for crumbled cooked bacon in the meat section of your local grocery store, or cook bacon and crumble it ahead of time so when you are making the pizza, it is all ready to go.

Fresh, thinly sliced pear would be a great substitution for the apple.

Using a dark coated pan creates a crispier pizza crust. If you don't have a dark pan, increase the oven temperature to 425°F.
