Secret Recipe Club, BLT Flatbread

It’s reveal day for my Secret Recipe Club group and I’ve been busy looking at all the wonderful recipes from Melissa’s Cuisine.  I changed my mind on which recipe to make several times…

how about a breakfast temptation of Single Serve Coffee Cake in a Mug, or even better a Chocolate Root Beer Bundt Cake for dessert…I ultimately decided to deny my sweet tooth and make her BLT pizza, see Melissa’s recipe here.  She uses grilled pizza crusts, yum!

I decided to try a warm version, by roasting the tomatoes and adding a layer of melted cheese to contrast the cool salad greens

I kicked up the nutrition value of the lettuce by adding spinach, kale and shaved brussels sprouts


I chopped the salad so it wouldn’t be cumbersome to eat

I used a refrigerated thin pizza crust dough


Bake according to package directions


You can roast the tomatoes with the bacon in a 350 oven.  After 15 minutes, check bacon every 2-3 minutes, until it is cooked but not too crispy.  It will cook further on top of the pizza


What is one of the most important parts of a BLT? Mayo of course!


And I’m going to add a little grated cheese to “glue” everything together


Spread the cooked crust with a layer of mayo and top with the cheese


If you’ve never had cheese toast made with mayo and cheese, you are missing a treat…you can see an easy appetizer or nibble on Goldfish Toasts here

Now top with roasted tomatoes and bacon pieces


Return to the oven for 10 minutes.  Use a pizza stone or put pizza directly on oven rack for best results and ensure the bottom gets crisp

Toss your salad with a touch of Italian vinaigrette~you don’t need much because it will pick up moisture from the roasted tomatoes, cheese and mayo on the flatbread~ and place salad on top of the cooked pizza

    It looks wonderful, Jenna! I’m on a real flat bread pizza craze. I order the same thing at Pepper’s every time we go – Margarita Flat Bread Pizza. I’m really interested in learning how to make that thin, cracker-like crust. Yours is very tempting, though!
