Blueberry Lavender and Basil Bacon Pizza

Blueberry Lavender and Basil Bacon Pizza 
Jam and pizza - what more could you ask for?  Jam on pizza…now that is the stuff dreams are made of!  This combination of savory, salty, smoky and sweet makes an incredible pie that is sure to bring smiles to the table.   

1 lb raw pizza dough (homemade or available at your local grocery store or favorite pizza place)
1/2 Jar Blueberry Lavender Slow Jams
1/2 Pound Bacon, cooked and diced 
1/2 Cup Ricotta Cheese 
1/4 Cup Fresh Basil, chopped 

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  You may use a pizza stone or baking pan, but be sure to grease the baking pan if that is what you are using.  
In a medium mixing bowl, stir together ricotta and fresh basil.  Salt and pepper to taste. 
Spread pizza dough onto baking pan as uniformly as possible.  Note: Pizza dough can be rather unruly, so you may not get a perfect circular shape.  We like all shapes and sizes and think it’s more fun that way - just try to create a uniformly thick pizza canvas so everything cooks evenly. 
Spread 1/4 cup of Blueberry Lavender Slow Jams on the pizza dough, leaving 1/4-1/2 inches of dough around the edge. Spread the ricotta mixture evenly on top of the jam.  Sprinkle bacon evenly on top of the ricotta. Take remaining 1/4 cup of Blueberry Lavender Slow Jams and dollop liberally over the pizza.  

Bake pizza for 15-20 minutes until the crust is nice and golden brown. Let finished pizza sit for 5 minutes before slicing.
