B.L.T. Pizza



There is a pizza chain around these parts that first gave light to this pizza.  Anytime I go there, I snatch it up, when I get the chance.  It may sound a little odd, but it is, really pretty darn good.

Now, I changed it up a bit.  I used Canadian bacon instead of regular bacon (they use both), just to keep it a little on the lighter side, I figured we didn't need two sides of pig that night, but it is more than likely cancelled out, as there is mayo on it.

Yes, I said mayo on a pizza.

Come on, their is also mayo on a B.L.T. sandwich right?  So, it's not that out there.


Oh, and I threw on spinach instead of the common shredded iceberg lettuce.  Another attempt to make myself feel better about eating a pizza with mayo on it.  But feel free to go all the way with the nutritionally savvy iceberg.

Just kidding.



B.L.T. Pizza
1 c. chopped Canadian bacon (or regular bacon)
1 tomato, diced
1 c. shredded lettuce
1 1/2 c. mozzarella
1/2 c. pizza sauce
1/4 c. mayo

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  If using a pizza stone (which I recommend), preheat the oven with the pizza stone in it.

When the stone is hot, place stretched pizza dough on stone.  Combine pizza sauce and mayo and spread on the crust.  Top with cheese, tomatoes and bacon.  Cook 10-15 minutes or until crust is crispy and cheese is golden.

Add lettuce to pizza, right before serving.


So yesterday was our 6th wedding anniversary.  We actually CALLED a babysitter and took 3 hours for just us.  We needed it.  After a great Mexican lunch, a few errands and ice cream, we were horribly full, but refreshed.

Only to find out when we were gone, neither child napped.  Wowza!  That makes for crabby kids.  But, it was worth it.  We needed those 3 hours.

I wish we could do that more often, but limited babysitters and family that lives too far away to help makes it difficult.  Oh, but it was nice...

  1. Do you watch the show Up All Night?? The last part of this post reminds me of the last episode! They were complaining because their babysitter quit. Boy, I can't WAIT to have kids!
    Glad you got to get out of the house. Thanks for the wonderful pizza recipe. Nick and I had pizza this weekend and I was so eager to eat it that I burned my mouth. DARN IT! Pizza is just so good!
