Tony's Trending: Date Night
  • 13-ounce dough ball
  • 3 Medjool or Barhi dates, cut in half
  • 1-ounce imported Gorgonzola dolce
  • 7 ounces shredded mozzarella
  • 7-9 half pieces of candied pecans
  • 3 pieces of cooked bacon, preferably applewood smoked (cut in half)
  • Micro arugula
  • Maldon or Himalayan salt
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Pastry brush
  1. Cut each date in half and remove the pits.
  2. Stuff each half with gorgonzola and set aside. I prefer to slightly par-bake the bacon before and place it on my pizza.
  3. Shape and stretch your dough into a 10- or 11-inch circle, leaving a one-inch thick border.
  4. Brush the crust with olive oil.
  5. Add the mozzarella and bacon and place the pizza into a 550 F oven.
  6. When the pizza is finished baking, cut into desired slices.
  7. Place the stuffed dates, pecans and micro arugula on the pizza.
  8. Season with a pinch of salt.
  9. Serve and enjoy.
