Pizza has a reputation for being simple fare, but the right topping combinations can elevate this rustic dish to new heights. Here are some winning combinations to try on your next pizza night.

  • Caramelized onions, bacon, and figs: The saltiness of the bacon pairs well with the sweetness of the onions and figs.
  • Chicken Bacon Ranch: Use a ranch-flavored cream sauce in place of traditional tomato-based sauce to enjoy this popular flavor combination.
  • Pineapple & Canadian Bacon: We know this is divisive, but if you’re “Team Pineapple” try it with Hempler’s famous Canadian Bacon!
  • All Meat: Don’t forget about bacon and smoked sausage when topping your meat lover’s pie with the traditional toppings.
  • Spinach Bacon Alfredo: Use a white sauce as the base, and top with bacon and spinach for a fantastic combo!
  • Pear, Bacon, & Blue Cheese: This is a great combination of sweet, savory, and tangy.
  • Breakfast Pizza: Pizza in the morning?! Yes, as long as you top it with eggs & bacon!
  • Barbecue Bacon: Use barbecue sauce as the base and top with cheese and bacon.
  • Beer Cheese & Bacon: Spread beer cheese over your pizza dough and top with bacon and anything else you desire!
  • Jalapeno Popper Pizza: Spread cream cheese on the crust and top with bacon, jalapeno peppers, and your favorite shredded cheese.
  • Smoked Sausage & Mozzarella: Combine smoked sausage with smoked mozzarella for a great depth of flavor. Use barbecue sauce as the base to make it extra special!
