Pesto Bacon Tomato Pizza

On our Pillsbury calendar I saw a recipe for this yummy looking pizza and we decided to make our own version!

I used this pizza crust recipe and some jarred pesto sauce we picked up at Sam's Club (yumm!!) along with cooked bacon (rough chopped into large pieces), some canadian bacon and sliced tomatoes topped with mozzarella cheese. It was really, really good! We all loved this recipe - really good for something "different" in the pizza arena, wonderful flavors and quick and easy to make!






Ingredients

6 slices bacon, cooked and rough chopped
4-6 rounds canadian bacon, diced
2 medium tomatoes, thin sliced
1 1/2 - 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/3 - 1/2 cup basil pesto

1 pizza crust recipe

Directions

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Prepare pizza crust recipe per instructions. Roll out dough to fit pan (we love our pizza baking stone!) and spread pesto to within about 1 inch of edges.

Sprinkle both bacons around pizza evenly then lay tomato slices on top. Top with desired amount of mozzarella cheese.

Bake for approximately 15-20 minutes, until cheese is bubbling and beginning to brown and crust is cooked and golden brown.

Allow to cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving.
