BLT Pizza Recipe

BLT pizza: If you like the sandwich, you have to try this pizza version!

I’m a big fan of bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwiches. I’m also a big fan of pizza. So when I found a recipe that combined the two together, I was beyond excited.

The base of this BLT pizza is simple: just crust, tomato sauce, bacon, and mozzarella cheese. The fun part comes in the topping: lettuce and tomato mixed with mayonnaise. While I chose to use my favorite flatbread pizza recipe for the crust, I think this recipe would be even better with a thin or medium crust (to act more like the bread component in the traditional BLT sandwich).

Do you heart BLTs as much as I do? Check out my post on BLT sandwich variations!

BLT Pizza Recipe

Yield: 4 servings

Total Time: 20 min

To save money, I bought romaine lettuce and cherry tomatoes from the grocery store salad bar for less than a dollar. This is cheaper than buying a bag of romaine and individual tomatoes. I made my own pizza sauce by mixing a can of tomato sauce with oregano, sea salt, olive oil, and a pinch of sugar.

Ingredients:

Pizza:

  • 1 pre-baked pizza crust
  • 3/4 cup pizza sauce
  • 1/2 cup chopped cooked bacon (I used turkey bacon)
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Topping:

  • 2 cups chopped romaine lettuce
  • 1/4 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Top pizza crust with sauce, bacon, and cheese. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until pizza is hot and cheese is melted and slightly browned.
  2. For topping, mix lettuce, tomatoes and mayonnaise together. Place salad on top of the baked pizza and serve.
