Ok, seriously, this is probably the best damn margherita pizza I’ve ever had. I think I probably could have eaten the whole pizza by myself. After I tasted it, I really didn’t want to share it with the Hubs anymore. I wanted to hoard it all. I’m a food hoarder.

When I saw this recipe from Kim, I knew it was one that I was definitely going to try out. I love candied bacon. It’s the bomb-diggity. If you’ve never had candied bacon, I seriously give you permission to stop reading now & go make you some. Or go to the store & buy some bacon if for some un-Godly reason you don’t already have bacon in your fridge. 😉

Oh but I am so glad I have {Thank you Kim!!} I decided to take the candied tomatoes & use them on one of my favorite pizzas – the classic Margherita. The addition of the sweetness from the brown sugar mixed with the acidity of the tomatoes along with the fresh basil, it’s just amazing! So if you want to try a new spin on a pizzeria classic, you’ve got to try this Candied Tomato Margherita Pizza!

    Stopping over from Strut your Stuff. This looks and sound so yummy. I’ve slow-roasted tomatoes before, but not with brown sugar like this. Definitely going to try as a topping for our make your own pizza nights. Thanks for sharing!
