Bacon, Mushroom, Caramelized Onion and Green Pepper Pizza

Ingredients

  • Quick and Easy Pizza Dough or store bought dough
  • 4 slices bacon
  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 1 tbsp. oil
  • 4 oz. mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, sliced
  • 2 cups reduced-fat Mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce
  • 1 tbsp. butter, melted
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic, finely minced

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (or as directed on package).

In a small saucepan, melt 2 tbsp. butter and oil. Add the sliced onion and cook until caramelized, about 15 minutes, stirring frequently.

Slice bacon into small pieces and cook in a frying pan until crispy.  Move to a paper towel-lined plate to let the grease soak up.

Add a small amount of oil to a small pan. Add the mushrooms and red pepper flakes and let cook until the mushrooms are tender, about 5 minutes.

Spread the pizza dough over a pizza pan or stone. Spread the sauce evenly over top. Top with the Mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. Layer the mushrooms, green onions, caramelized onions and bacon on top.

Melt the remaining 1 tbsp. butter in the microwave with the garlic. Spread this over the crust.

Bake the pizza for 12-15 minutes (or as directed on package), until cheese is melted and bubbly. Enjoy!
