This re-work of a classic pizza is far more Canadian than you'd think! It made it's first appearance in Ontario in the 1960's and we've developed an easy-to-make at home version keeping the same familiar elements with a tasty twist! Bacon gets a make-over with a sticky sweet coating of maple syrup and the pizza base is both crispy and soft, without the rolling. To round out the meal, we've updated the humble side salad with crisp-roasted veggies tossed in a delish vinaigrette.
