BLT Pizza

Every Friday in our family is "Pizza Night".  Since we are committed to eating pizza at least once a week, we have come up with some fun variations on the traditional pie.  BLT pizza is a recipe I came up with while working at a pizza joint in college.  It is best in the middle of summer, when I can pick fresh lettuce and tomatoes from my garden.  It doesn't hurt to buy some really good bacon for this pizza either.

BLT PIZZA          Printable Version

Your favorite pizza crust, homemade is always best
(I use The Pioneer Woman's recipe here)
Olive oil
Salt & pepper
2 cups shredded mozzarella
Bacon, cooked to desired doneness, chopped
Green lettuce, chopped
One large tomato, diced
Mayonnaise (the REAL stuff)

Prepare the pizza crust and spread out onto a baking sheet.  Cover the crust with a drizzle of olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, then top with the cooked bacon and shredded cheese.  Bake until the cheese is melted.

While the pizza is baking, mix together your lettuce, tomatoes, and mayo in a bowl.  Toss to combine thoroughly.

Remove the pizza from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes.  Top with the BLT mixture and spread evenly over the pizza.  Cut into pieces and enjoy!
