Bacon, lettuce, tomato and avocado pizza. BLAT pizza heaven!
Friday night pizza with the neighbors turned into me eating super healthy all week so I can dream and devise the most perfectly delicious pizza and not hold any lingering guilt. Great!
BLT pizza started as a dream and morphed into my mouth a smoky, creamy, cool and cheesy delight. You will have those who love you love you even more after this pizza. It's that good. Try it!
Pizza dough: (I always remove 1/4 lb of dough some the 2 lb ball to make a small cheese pizza for the kids enjoyment! We adult refer to it as the appetizer pizza!)
Pizza dough for bread machine- 2 pounds
1 1/2 cups Clean water- 80-90 F
1 teaspoon natural cane sugar
2 teaspoons kosher salt or sea salt
2 tbls extra virgin olive oil
3 1/4 cups organic unbleached all purpose flour
3/4 cup organic whole wheat flour or white whole wheat flour
few dashes of dried basil and garlic, each
2 1/4 teaspoons yeast
Place ingredients in order listed in bread pan with kneading paddle. Select dough/pizza dough setting. Press start. When done remove. Roll out how you wish and top!
BLAT-Bacon, Lettuce, Avocado, Tomato pizza
1 onion, diced
4-5 garlic cloves, minced
3/4 block organic Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
10-12 slices good quality bacon- no preservatives, no hormones! I like apple wood smoked uncured from TJ'S
2 fresh organic tomatoes, diced
4 cups finely shredded greens- I used green leaf lettuce
2 avocados, diced
Heat oven to 450F. Roll out dough and transfer to pan. Set aside.
Cook bacon until crisp. Drain, cool and roughly chop. Set aside.
Saute onions and garlic in olive oil until soft and translucent. Do no over cook the garlic. Keep it on med heat.
Top pizza with onions, garlic and olive oil mixture. Top with bacon and tomatoes. Sprinkle shredded cheese over pizza.
Bake about 25-ish minutes. (I have yet to clock the cooking time.)
When pizza is done let sit for 10 min. Then top with lettuce and avocado. Slice up and serve!
