1 cup maple syrup
1 cinnamon stick or 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 cups blueberries
8 slices of thick-cut bacon
½ cup mascarpone cheese
In a small saucepan, bring maple syrup and cinnamon stick or ground cinnamon to a simmer. Add blueberries and cook on low heat 5 minutes. Let cool, then drain blueberries, reserving maple syrup. Meanwhile, chop bacon and fry over medium-high heat until golden, 5 to 6 minutes. Top pizza with blueberries, bacon, and spoonfuls of mascarpone cheese. Bake at 450° until crust is golden brown. Serve with reserved cinnamon-maple syrup on the side.
