Course Main Dish
Prep Time 20minutes
Cook Time 10minutes
Total Time 10minutes
Servings 4-6 servings
1half portion of Jim Lahey’s no knead pizza dough or store bought pizza dough
1poundfresh mozzarellatorn into small pieces
4slicesthick cut baconcut into 1 inch pieces
1medium onionthinly sliced
6large brussels sprouts or 8-10 medium sizedouter leaves removed, sliced thin
Pre-heat your oven to 500 degrees F. and have a half-sheet sized baking sheet ready.
In a frying pan on medium heat, cook the bacon until crisp and remove with a slotted spoon to a paper towel to drain. Reserve the excess grease in the pan.
Lower the heat to medium-low and saute the onions in the reserved bacon grease until soft and it begins to caramelize, about 8-10 minutes. Remove from pan with slotted spoon and set aside.
Stretch the pizza dough out onto the baking sheet, pressing it into the corners and drizzle with a little bit of extra virgin olive oil. Prick the dough with the tines of a fork and par-bake for 5 minutes.
Remove the dough from the oven and sprinkle with the torn mozzarella, bacon, caramelized onions and sliced brussels sprouts.
Cook the pizza for 10-12 minutes or until the cheese is fully melted and the brussels sprouts just begin to brown on the edges.
Remove and let set for 2-3 minutes before slicing to serve.
