BLT Pizza

I was perusing Pinterest the other night and noticed this delicious looking BLT pizza, and when I went to find the recipe, I saw that it was straight from my friend Casi’s site cupcakeMAG!

This is the perfect summertime recipe, and looks easy enough that the kids can help out. I can’t wait to try it out. Here’s the recipe:

BLT Pizza

BLT Pizza

{serves 2-3} 

Ingredients:

  • pizza crust
  • 1 large clove of garlic, roughly chopped 
  • olive oil
  • 4 thick slices of applewood smoked bacon, cooked crisp 
  • 1/2 a tomato, sliced and quartered 
  • mozzarella cheese
  • lettuce, washed and torn
  • ceasar dressing
  • sliced jalapeños, optional 

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven and place your pizza stone in the oven, if using one.
  2. Toss the dough until at the desired thickness and place on parchment paper sprinkled with cornmeal or semolina flour.
  3. Crisp bacon and chop the garlic, jalapeños, and tomatoes.
  4. Toss torn lettuce with a bit of caesar dressing, to taste.
  5. Brush the entire crust with olive oil and sprinkle with the minced garlic.
  6. Spread on the cheese, as much as you prefer, then top with jalapeños {if using} and large sections of bacon and tomato.
  7. Sprinkle the tomatoes with a bit of salt and pepper, if desired.
  8. Bake according to pizza dough directions {we broil ours at a high temperature because we like a crispy crust}.
  9. Remove from the oven and top with the lettuce right before serving (the lettuce will wilt so serve immediately)
