Maurizio Mascioli - Great Canadian Apple Cheddar Bacon Pizza,

The Great Canadian Apple Bacon Cheddar Pizza celebrates Canada’s 150th birthday. This craveable pie won the Seasonal Pizza Challenge at the Canadian Pizza Show in 2017

According to chef Maurizio Mascioli, much research and development went into this pie, which is a popular item on the menu at his pizzeria, Maurizio’s Inc.

As a result, every milligram matters and amounts are exact. Mascioli and his team created more than a dozen variations before settling on the final version he took to the competition.


  • Brown sugar
  • Sliced apples
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Bacon
  • Pecans
  • Maple syrup


  • Add brown sugar to a butter base to create body.
  • Layer the cheese and apple.
  • Be careful not to add too much cheese and risk scorching the pizza on top.
  • Finish by adding a drizzle of maple syrup.
