BLT (Bacon, Lettuce & Tomato) Pizza

READY IN: 15mins

Recipe by Baz

From the California Pizza Kitchen Cookbook, with some minor amendments. When the crisp rocket lettuce and tzatziki dip is added to the warm pizza, it's a taste sensation. To make your own tzatziki use Tzatziki (Yoghurt, Cucumber, Garlic and Mint Dip).

Great blend of flavors, and a very unique twist on pizza! I had leftover homemade tzatziki to use up, and this was a great use for it! Thanks for sharing!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 plain large pizza crust (i.e. pizza base)
  • 236.59-473.18 ml mozzarella cheese, shredded (amount depending on taste)
  • 29.58 ml extra virgin olive oil
  • 118.29 ml bacon, cooked crisp & crumbled into pieces (use more if you like)
  • 2 roma tomatoes, sliced into 1/8 inch (3mm)
  • 709.77 ml lettuce, rocket (or romaine)
  • 59.16 ml tzatziki (or mayonnaise, if you don't have tzatziki)

Directions

  1. Brush olive oil over the pizza base.
  2. Spread 3/4 of the mozzarella over the oiled surface.
  3. Distribute bacon pieces over the cheese.
  4. Place enough tomato slices over the bacon to cover the pizza in one single layer.
  5. Spread another layer of mozzarella over the tomatoes.
  6. Transfer to the preheated Pizza Maker machine (or to a very hot oven) and cook until the crust is crisp and golden and the cheese at the centre is bubbling (8 to 10 minutes).
  7. While pizza is cooking mix the tzatziki or mayonnaise (as much as you'd like) with the lettuce.
  8. When the pizza is ready, remove, cut into pieces and add the dressed lettuce to each piece. Serve immediately.
