It’s difficult to imagine that a BLT could get any better—but then I went ahead and tossed the classic fixings onto a pizza crust and there you have it: pure bliss! The tomatoes are baked into the crust for sweet bursts of juiciness in every bite. Then it’s topped with the “B” and “L”— crispy turkey bacon and shredded romaine lettuce—for an extra dose of goodness. And to take it totally over the top, add a few spoonfuls of my Ranch Dressing and a generous drizzle of balsamic glaze. My prediction: This may become your new obsession. (It’s definitely mine)

  • A few notes on the dough:
  • • You can buy “frozen or shelf-stable” ready-made shaped pizza crust. Typically, you add your toppings and bake in the oven for about 10 minutes. Check the package and follow the specific brand directions. Comes in all varieties; white flour, whole wheat, gluten-free, cauliflower and more.
  • .

• You can buy frozen or refrigerated pizza dough balls; simply let thaw if frozen and roll into a pizza crust shape. Follow directions for adding toppings and oven time/temp.

• You can buy boxed powdery mixes, just like muffin and cake mix.

• You can make your own crust! Recipes are pretty simple (and fun!) to follow and tend to be comprised of flour (bonus points for whole grain), a dash of sugar, dry yeast, salt, olive oil and water. Check out my easy recipe here.
