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

1 can refrigerated pizza crust dough, like Pillsbury Thin Crust

1/2 cup Mayonnaise

4 oz grated white cheese, Montery Jack,  Mozzarella, AsiagoI used manchego

8 strips bacon

1 pint cherry tomatoes

3 cups mixed salad greens

olive oil

salt and pepper

favorite salad dressing or vinaigrette

Cook pizza crust according to package directions.  Set aside

Cut tomatoes in half, place on foil lined baking sheet and toss with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast at 400 15-20 minutes

Place bacon on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and roast in the same oven with tomatoes.  Check after 15 minutes.   Remove bacon when it is just crispy, but not over done.  Drain on paper towels and cut into 1 inch pieces

Spread pastry with a layer of mayonnaise, then sprinkle with cheese.  Top  with roasted tomatoes and bacon.

Return to oven 10 minutes until cheese has melted and begun to turn golden and pizza looks done.  Cook pizza on a stone or directly on baking rack to make sure the bottom crisps up.

Toss lettuce with salad dressing.  Place salad on top of warm pizza and cut into squares to serve

    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!
