Brussels Sprout and Bacon Pizza

unnamed (17)

We love to eat Brussels sprouts in our home pretty much any time of the year. I wasn’t a big fan as a child but I’m obsessed now or maybe it’s because I use bacon fat to cook my Brussels sprouts in. Whatever the case may be we love to eat it and why not combined that with another favorite… Pizza?  I decided to grill my pizza since it was a beautiful day. I grill year around if it’s nice out. I hope you enjoy as much as we did.

Ingredients: 

Brussels sprouts, chopped finely 

Salt & pepper, to taste 

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon onion powder 

12 pieces bacon, cut in pieces 

Olive oil, for brushing on to pizza dough

3 cups Italian fontina cheese, shredded 

Pizza dough, store bought is fine

Truffle oil, topping 

Pecorino Romano, shavings for garnish 

Preparation: 

In a large skillet on medium to high heat add a couple slices of bacon. Cook until golden and crispy about 5 minted per side. Remove and place on paper towel to remove excess oil. Repeat process until all of the bacon is cooked (try not to eat any haha). Set aside 

Next add the Brussels into the skillet with the bacon drippings. Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder sauté for about 8-10 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside. 

Get grill nice and hot. Brush some olive oil on to the pizza. Place on the grill once it starts to bubble flip the pizza.  It should only take about 2-3 minutes per side. 

Once flipped add fountain cheese, remove after cheese has melted. Next top with Brussels and bacon. Garnish with pecorino and truffle oil.
