Dough Ingredients:
Topping Ingredients:
  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Put cheese in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave one minute. Stir. Microwave 30 seconds. Stir. At this point, all the cheese should be melted. Microwave 30 more seconds until uniform and gloopy (it should look like cheese fondue at this point). 
  3. Add the rest of the dough ingredients and the melted cheese to a food processor. Mix using the dough blade until a uniform color. If you do not have a food processor you can mix in a medium bowl with a wooden spoon but you may need to knead it by hand to thoroughly incorporate the ingredients. 

  4. Once the dough is a uniform color wet your hands and press it out into a 9×12 ish rectangle on a parchment lined baking sheet.

  5. In a small bowl stir together the 2/3 cup sweetener, maple extract, and molasses. Sprinkle half of it over the prepared dough. Top with the bacon. Sprinkle with the remaining sweetener.
  6. Bake for 20-24 minutes. Sprinkle with additional sweetener if desired.
Recipe Notes

Notes on Sweeteners: 

I use my own blend of xylitol, erythritol, and stevia in my recipes. This is twice as sweet as sugar. It is comparable to Trim Healthy Mama Gentle Sweet and Truvia.

To sub in Swerve use 1.5 to 2 times the amount of sweetener called for.
To sub in Pyure or Trim Healthy Mama Super Sweet use half the amount of sweetener called for.
Substitutions will work in most recipes. They may not work in candies, such as caramel.

*** I get a lot of comments from my low carb readers on the use of molasses. I use it for flavor, not sweetness. One teaspoon of molasses has 5 grams of carbs. This recipe uses 1/2 tsp divided by 8 servings. That is less than .5 grams of carbs from the molasses per serving. If you prefer you can just omit it.
