Bacon and goat's cheese pizza

I found myself in London a couple of weeks ago with a bit of time to kill. What better than a visit to Neal's Yard Dairy in Covent Garden? I was quite restrained, and came away with only two cheeses. One of them was the Childwickbury goat's cheese that found its way onto this pizza.

This cheese was recommended by the shop assistant for a goat's cheese custard I planned to cook for some friends who would be visiting the following weekend.  It's a lovely fresh, zesty, cheese that I'm sure would have worked wonderfully in the custard - if only cheese could last a whole week in my house. It worked brilliantly on the pizza, along with some bacon lardons, a basic tomato sauce, and a mix of grated mozzarella, cheddar and parmesan. The custard (which I planned to serve as a sauce for broccoli) will have to wait...
