  •  1 ball of your favorite pizza dough
  •  olive oil, for brushing
  •  1 cup freshly shredded mozzarella cheese
  •  1 small apple, cored and sliced
  •  ½ cup thinly sliced red onion
  •  2 links cooked bratwurst, sliced
  •  2 ounces goat cheese, crumbled
  •  balsamic glaze, for drizzling


  1. Preheat the oven to 500ºF. Place a pizza stone in the oven and allow the stone to heat for at least 15 to 20 minutes (if you can do 30, even better!).
  2. Place the pizza dough on a lightly floured surface and allow the dough to relax for about 10 minutes (but no longer than 30).
  3. Roll out and shape the dough and then transfer to a piece of parchment the size of your pizza stone that has been lightly dusted with cornmeal.
  4. Lightly brush the pizza dough all over with the olive oil. Sprinkle the dough with the mozzarella, then top with the apple, onion, bratwurst and goat cheese.
  5. Transfer to the oven (put the parchment paper with the pizza directly on the pizza stone). Bake for about 11 to 14 minutes, until the crust is golden brown.
  6. Drizzle lightly with the balsamic glaze. Slice and serve.
