No, we do not bake the lettuce. Read on.

This little pizza came by way of a similar BBQ pizza that also had lettuce, and from there I think it was Dave that decided we should try to make a BLT one. We probably make one of these every few weeks. I know it sounds kind of funny, but it’s really good!

The pizza is even better in the summer when it’s topped with tomatoes from our backyard, but as long as you have a good slicing/beefsteak tomato, you’re golden.

Here’s what you need:

  • A pizza crust for a 12-in pizza
  • OneĀ  beefsteak tomato, sliced
  • 2-3 cups of grated cheese
  • 2 slices of bacon
  • 2-3 loose cups of lettuce
  • Garlic salt
  • Mayo to taste

Start by making a homemade crust – whole wheat works well with this variety, too. Top the crust with a little bit of garlic salt and then cover with the grated cheese.

Place the tomato slices and uncooked bacon slices on top, and add a little bit more cheese to glue them down. Bake for about 15 minutes at 400 degrees – it will be done when the bacon and crust are both cooked.

Meanwhile, shred your lettuce into pretty tiny leaves and toss with a little bit of mayo. When the pizza comes out of the oven, sprinkle the lettuce and mayo on top.

Again, I know this is a pretty unusual pizza. But … it showcases one of my favorite sandwiches and it’s a fun alternative to making another pepperoni.
