The classic bacon and tomato sandwich combination elevated with dressed greens and shallots make this simple BLT Pizza a winner.


  • 6 Strips Thick Cut Bacon; cooked, cooled and chopped into 1/2-inch strips
  • 1 Prepared Pizza Dough
  • 1.25 cups Grated Mozzarella Cheese
  • 1.5 cups Quartered Grape Tomatoes
  • 2 cups Baby Greens, roughly chopped
  • 1 small Shallot, diced
  • Drizzle of Olive oIl
  • Drizzle of Red or White Wine Vinegar
  • Kosher Salt and Black Pepper



Preheat the oven with pizza stone or steel to 450 degrees for about 40 minutes to one hour. Let the prepared pizza dough come up tot room temperature.


When the oven is up to temp and dough is at room temp; pull, stretch, roll or spin your dough out to about 12-inches round on a floured pizza peel.


Spread an even layer of the cheese (about 1 cup) over the dough surface. Then top with the bacon. Follow the bacon with the quartered tomatoes. Top with the remaining 1/4 cup of cheese.


Shimmy and slide the pizza onto the pizza stone or steel (be prepared to lose a few tomatoes in the process) and bake for 10-15 minutes, until the dough is puffed and golden and the cheese is melted and bubbly.


Combine the chopped greens and the shallot in a bowl and drizzle with olive oil. Give it a drizzle of white or red wine vinegar and toss to combine. Season with a little kosher salt and black pepper and toss again to combine.


When the pizza comes out of the oven, let it sit for a minute, then top the entire surface with the dressed greens.


Then slice it how you like it and enjoy!
