Servings 4


  • 1 6"x12" Flatbread or use 2-3 naan breads
  • 1 cup shredded charp cheddar (grating block cheese yourself is worth the effort)
  • 1 apple, thinly sliced use a sweet-tart apple like granny smith, gala, empire or zestar
  • 4 slices cooked bacon, chopped
  • 1 cup arugula


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Lay flatbread on a cutting board – top flatbread with 3/4 cup of shredded cheese.
  • Arrange apple slices evenly over cheese and then sprinkle chopped bacon on top.
  • Finally, sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup cheddar over all the toppings.
  • Carefully slide flatbread into pre-heated oven, directly onto oven grates.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbling. Remove from oven by sliding flatbread back onto cutting board, using a towel or hot pad.
  • Let flatbread cool for a few minutes and then cut into 4 portions. Top pizza with arugula and serve immediately.
