Food for Thought – February 28, 2017

For The Vista

It may not be Spring yet, but it sure feels like it! And with the warm weather, I’m starting to look for lighter meals.

This pizza is a quick fix for those evenings when you don’t want a big meal. Hope you enjoy it!

BLT Pizza

1 prebaked 12” pizza crust

1⁄2 c Miracle Whip

2 tsp dried basil

1⁄2 tsp garlic powder

1/8 tsp onion powder

12 bacon strips, cooked & crumbled

3⁄4 c shredded cheddar cheese

3⁄4 c shredded mozzarella cheese

1 1⁄2 c shredded lettuce

2 medium tomatoes, thinly sliced

 

Place crust on ungreased pizza pan. In a small bowl, combine Miracle whip, basil garlic powder & onion powder. Spread over crust.

Set aside 1⁄4 c bacon. Sprinkle cheeses, bacon & tomatoes over crust. Bake at 425° for 8-12 minutes. Top with lettuce & remaining bacon.

Note: I’ve tried just about every kind of pre-made pizza crust and have made lots of home-made recipes, but I find that we really like the Momma Mary’s brand for a quick dinner.

It’s available in thin and regular crust sizes.
