It was a bumper crop of apples this year, I had a stylist bringing in bushels of apples from her trees. She had so many apples this year she could not get rid of them. They put a ladder out by the apple trees for the neighbors to come and help themselves. They are great baking apples. I felt like something savory as opposed to sweet to bake. I saw this apple pizza recipe, it had all the ingredients I love, blue cheese, arugula and pizza. I still had a bunch of thyme in the garden so I loaded up the pizza with extra herbs and pecans-it was all good. I recommend what ever pizza crust recipe you like, It does help to pre-bake the crust for like 3 to 4 minutes before you put the apples on and bake it , I think the apples add moisture to the crust and can make it soggy. You can make this with goat cheese or feta cheese but I really liked the combination of the pungent blue cheese that was smoothed out with the sweet crisp apples.
