When you add bacon to pie, does it qualify as breakfast? YES. Pastry chef Tiffany MacIsaac, “director of candy and ideas” for DC’s Birch & Barley, GBD and Buzz Bakery, likes to mix six to eight slabs of chopped, crispy bacon into to her favorite apple filling. To take your bacon relationship to the next base, swap two ounces of bacon fat for the same amount of butter in your go-to crust.

And yes, there was a dessert pizza as well. Super simple to make. Roll out and shape the dough. Brush it with melted butter. Sprinkle on a mixture of sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Slice up some fruit (we used pears tonight, but you can use apples or whatever). Sprinkle a bit more of the cinnamon sugar mixture over the fruit. Toss in a 500 degree oven with a preheated stone for about 8-10 minutes. Remove and let cool for about 5-10 minutes. At this point you can either slice it up and enjoy it or you can make up a bit of frosting to drizzle over the top of it and then dig in.
