Ingredients
  

  • 1 can refrigerated pizza crust dough like Pillsbury thin crust
  • 1 cup+ light Alfredo sauce like Classico lite Asiago Romano
  • 24-30 Brussels sprouts washed, stems cut off and halved
  • 6-8 slices thick cut bacon
  • 3-4 oz bleu cheese
  • 2 oz shaved Parmesan cheese
  • olive oil
  • salt & pepper

Instructions
 

  • Place Brussels sprouts in between bacon slices on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Drizzle sprouts lightly with olive oil and season them with salt and pepper. Bake at 400, 20-25 minutes until bacon is done and sprouts are beginning to char. Drain bacon well on paper towels and cut into 1 inch pieces
  • Bake crust according to package directions, removing when just done. It will brown further when returned to oven with toppings. Top with 1 cup alfredo sauce and spread into a thin layer. Add sprouts and bacon pieces. Sprinkle with bleu cheese and Parmesan. Drizzle with a little more alfredo sauce if desired. Return to oven for about 10 minutes, until cheese has melted and crust is golden. Cut into 8 or 12 large squares for serving, or mini squares for appetizers.

Notes

Can be made ahead. Refrigerate prepared pizza and bake right before serving. Leftovers reheat well in toaster or oven
