BLT Pizza



This was delicious!  I kicked back with some Brooklyn Brewery Winter Ale...watched some TV and relaxed with this yummy creation a couple weeks ago.

I make my own pizza dough and sauce, but your level of involvement is completely up to you :)

Basic Pizza Dough Recipe

I started the dough early in the day and set it to rise near my kitchen heater. I also cooked a package of bacon on a rack in the oven for about 30 minutes to get it nice and crisp (as well as save the drippings).

I also put the sauce on to simmer:

1 28oz can diced (organic) tomatoes
1 T (organic) tomato paste
1 t Minced Garlic
Onion Powder
Dried Basil
Dried Oregano
Fennel Seeds
Sea Salt
Pepper


I basically made a bacon pizza (with cheddar cheese) and then topped it with a salad of spring mix and plum tomatoes (dressed with red wine vinegar, warm bacon drippings, onion powder, ground mustard and sea salt).

Heat oven to 400F (if you have a pizza stone, let it heat for 40-45 minutes) and bake pizza for 15-20 minutes or until crust is done and cheese is melted.  I bought a peel especially for pizza making...it's really fun!



MMMMM.....


*I used the leftover bacon in some savory oatmeal for the next couple days!
