Where to begin?
I’m resorting to the phone app as I have two sick kids that are sleeping on either side of me and if one of them wakes up I may lose my mind (just a little bit). So I’m going to try to get this post out during my hopefully 15 minutes of silence and then chug a pot of coffee.
BLT pizza. What an amazing idea. So simple, so delicious, and definitely appreciated in our baconaholic household.
I made this before sickness descended on our house (first b, then me, then z…lucky lucky w) and it really was a hit. in fact I may have eaten half the pizza myself.
This pizza came to be because we had a large forgotten bag of spinach in the back of our fridge, z asked for pizza and bacon for dinner and I was looking for something simple.
So I sautéed the spinach with olive oil, salt and garlic, used a store-bought dough and got to work.
This is what you’ll need;
1 bag spinach (there will be leftovers)
1 tea salt
1 tbsp olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 store bought pizza dough
2 tomatoes sliced thin,
1/3 package bacon, cooked and chopped
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
I’m sure most of this will be self explanatory, but here goes…
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Sauté spinach in 1 tea olive oil. Add garlic and salt when leaves are almost wilted. I then puréed the spinach so that I could use it as baby food and a base-double win for me.
Take your store bought dough and stretch it out however you do it to make a pizza (I’ve found people have very varying methods for this). Add the rest of the olive oil to the middle of your rolled pizza base and paint the dough until all top sides are lightly covered with oil. Put in oven for 10 minutes.
Remove pizza after 10 minutes and add 4-5 tbsp of spinach, making your base or “sauce”. Cook in oven for another 10 minutes.
Remove and top with bacon, tomatoes and cheese. Cook 5 minutes. Slice and serve!
