Although I didn't use the recipe at all (true confession: I also didn't really write a real recipe either), my BLT pizza was completely inspired by this book. And it was completely amazing. I will make this again, and again and again. And if it is this good with runty little winter cherry tomatoes, just think of how it will be when the real Jersey tomatoes of summer are in. I can't wait.
Right. So about that recipe...
BLT PIZZA NOT QUITE RECIPE
dough - buy some or use 1/3 of my usual recipe
mozzarella cheese, shredded (a few cups)
6-8 slices of bacon (or turkey bacon) cooked until crispy
1/2 bag of pre-washed baby spinach
cherry tomatoes (no clue how many)
1-2 cloves garlic, minced
NOT REALLY DIRECTIONS:
Crumble or chop your cooked bacon. Set it aside in a bowl. Rinse and halve your cherry tomatoes. On a baking sheet, toss them with the garlic and a bit of olive oil. Put in the oven at 350 for 15 minutes. I'm not sure exactly how long. You want them nice and roasty. Roll out the dough and prebake it for 5-7 minutes. While it's cooking rewash your spinach if you're compulsive like that and saute it up with a bit of olive oil and salt and pepper. Just long enough to wilt it. Pull the dough out cover it with mozzarella. Then top with the bacon, tomatoes and spinach. Pop in the oven for another 2-3 minutes until the cheese is melty and delicious. Enjoy the spoils of the 80s.
