BLT pizza is amazing. Seriously, how can you go wrong with bacon on a pizza? Anyway, here goes.
1 pizza crust (my recipe is in another post)
1/2 lb bacon, chopped
1/2 cup sliced cherry tomatoes
1 cup romaine, chopped
1/2 cup mayonnaise
16 oz mozzarella cheese or white colby
Take your pizza crust of choice and place it on a greased baking sheet. Blah blah blah, you know the drill. I did mine as a square, but you can do yours round if you want. I don’t care.
Let your pizza crust proof one more time in the oven at 400 degrees, just for a minute or two to give it one last burst of heat before you add the toppings.
Okay, now you’re going to have to trust me. Take the mayo and spread it over the top of the crust. I know, I know, it sounds gross. I absolutely loathe mayonnaise, but for some reason, it works incredibly well here. One small caveat, though: if you use Miracle Whip, you will make your family hate you. Miracle Whip is made from the tears of orphans. Enough of that, though. Sprinkle your cheese evenly across the top of the pizza.
Add your bacon to the top of the pizza. I rendered my bacon before adding it to the pizza just to get rid of some of the extra fat, but you don’t have to if you don’t want to. You can use precooked bacon too, if you so desire. Morgan Freeman still doesn’t give a shit and neither do I. Arrange your tomatoes accordingly.
Toss the pizza in a 400 degree oven and let it bake for about 15 minutes, depending on your oven. Whatever you do, don’t add the lettuce now, because it will wilt and your family will hate you even more than if you used Miracle Whip (seriously, that stuff is gross).
If the crust is done before your toppings are sufficiently browned, no big deal. Just turn on the broiler for a few moments until the bacon is crisped to your liking and the cheese is bubbly. Let the pizza rest for a few minutes before cutting into it, and add the chopped lettuce to the top of the pizza right before serving it.
