- 2 cloves garlic (minced)
- 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar (5%)
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup

- The juice of 1/2 lemon
- 1/4 pound cheddar cheese (shredded)
- 4 fresh baby sprigs of thyme
In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat, stirring often, until bacon is browned and crispy (about 10 minutes). With a slotted spoon, transfer bacon to a paper towel to drain.
Pour off all but 1 tablespoon of bacon grease from skillet, add onions, cook until onions are translucent (about 4 minutes), stir in garlic, cook for another minute. Add in vinegar, brown sugar, maple syrup, coffee and Our Family Garden, Touch of Honey Applesauce, bring to a boil, stirring and scraping up brown bits from skillet with a wooden spoon, about 2 minutes.
Add bacon and stir to combine. Lower heat to simmer and cook mixture until liquid is almost all reduced and is a syrup consistency (about 30 minutes) stirring frequently. Set aside to cool.
Cook pizza dough according to package directions, until cooked but not browned. Take out of oven.
Cut brie cheese into thin slices and place onto pizza dough leaving the crust free of cheese. Top with desired amount of Apple bacon jam, the more the sweeter the pie! Core apple and slice into very thin slices. Dip apples in lemon juice and place on pizza in a circle, overlapping on the outer edge near crust, then place one slice in the middle. Top with shredded cheddar and fresh thyme sprigs, place back in the oven on the lower rack until cheese is melted and crust is golden brown.
Remove from oven and let cool slightly before cutting. Remove thyme stems. Serve and Enjoy!
