BLT Pizza might just be my most recent favorite dinner. It’s super easy to prepare and only requires a handful of ingredients but leaves everyone at the dinner table satisfied and happy. I haven’t always been a big bacon fan (I know, something was obviously wrong with me) but recently I’ve decided it’s totally necessary in life. The idea of eating all these classic sandwich toppings on a pizza is just kinda awesome. It’s a winner with both kids and adults and your friends and family will be begging for more!

This recipe was submitted by Curry and Comfort (Ramona), and give her a big round of applause for this one because I secretly wish I had thought of it myself!

Okay, here’s what to do.

You’ll need a handful or two of bright red cherry tomatoes.

Slice them all in half and then set them aside.

You’ll also need a head of romaine lettuce.

Slice it up and throw it in a bowl until you’re ready to assemble the pizza.

Place a few bacon strips on a drying rack over a baking sheet.

Place the bacon in the oven and let it crisp up for about 5-7 minutes.

You’re going to need some cream cheese and some chopped chives. You could easily use store bought chive cream cheese, but I for some reason couldn’t find any, so I made my own.

Let the cream cheese soften on your counter for a bit, and then mix in the chives. (You might want to make a little extra of this too—it’s delicious on a bagel in the morning!)

You’ll need a large baking sheet.

Sprinkle the baking dish with some corn meal. This is going to prevent your pizza dough from sticking.

Take your pizza dough and spread it out on your baking sheet. It can be whatever shape you’d like. Mine was a little abstract, but I think it gives it some character. Throw the baking sheet into your preheated oven and baking the dough until it turns into a beautiful crust.

Place your pizza crust onto a cutting board and let it slightly cool.

Schmear on the chive cream cheese mixture.

Pile the lettuce on top.

Sprinkle the bacon over the lettuce.

And then finish with the cherry tomatoes on top. You could give it a sprinkle of salt and pepper now, but the bacon usually has enough salt that you probably won’t need to.

Description

Taking the classic BLT sandwich and making a fun and fresh pizza.

Ingredients

  • 8 strips Bacon
  • 1 whole Pizza Crust
  • 4 ounces, weight Chive And Onion Cream Cheese
  • 1 bunch Romaine Lettuce
  • ½ pints Grape Tomatoes
  • 1 dash Salt And Pepper

Preparation Instructions

Bake your bacon in the oven (see note below) until crispy. While your bacon is baking, you can also crisp up your pizza base. I used this great Afghan bread that makes perfect pizza crust. But any of your favorite pizza bases (pita, naan or tube pizza dough) that are pre-baked and heated are perfectly fine. Once the pizza base is heated (but not too hot), apply the chive and onion cream cheese all over the base.

Next layer the shredded romaine lettuce, sliced grape tomatoes, salt and pepper and bacon.

Note: The easiest way to make bacon is to bake it in the oven. You will get perfectly crispy bacon and you don’t have to do anything but let it bake. Preheat your oven to 400ºF. You will need a baking tray and some cooling racks placed on top of it or you can use your broiler pan that is slotted with a drip pan. Lay your bacon across the cooling racks. Place them in the oven for 15 minutes or until the bacon is fully cooked and ready to crumble. The bacon will be crispy, perfectly straight and all the oil will have dripped to the lower tray. I love this method.

Looks delicious! My family makes a BLT pizza that is a little different: unbaked pizza crust, sprinkled with mozzarella cheese, onions, and crumbled bacon. Bake it until done, then let it cool a couple minutes, sprinkle with chopped romaine and tomatoes and drizzle mayo over. Either way, BLT pizza is amazing!

This looks heavenly!! My husband might even like it since it has bacon :) He loves my pizzas as long as they’re full of fatty meat, but won’t touch my margarita pizza :) Thx!!

The pictures have my mouth watering already. How ever it would take me all day to make this. I will pass it recipe on. Thanks

I think sundried tomatoes (in place of fresh) would be awesome too
