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 that 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 for both kids and adults and your friends and family are going to be begging for more!
You’ll need a handful or two of bright red cherry tomatoes.
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!)
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.
Shmear 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.
And then it’s time to dig in!
