Hubby has been traveling ALL week and I’m sure it was a little stressful (and cold!) … so I wanted to make something sort of special that the others would enjoy too … hence, BLT Pizza 🙂
The dough recipe comes from Tammys Recipes. Actually, the whole idea comes from Tammy … so I will give credit where credit is due 🙂
1 cup warm water
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 1/2 cups flour (this is how I have to do it)
2 tsp active yeast
2/3 cup ranch dressing
½ to 1 tbs fresh chopped garlic
12 oz mozz cheese
2 oz cheddar cheese
¼ cup parm cheese
1 cup cooked bacon, chopped (ok, so I used real bacon bits because it’s what I had and I didn’t measure)
1 large tomato, seeds and juice squeezed out and diced
¼ cup sliced green onions (I didn’t do this time)
Make dough in bread maker, only to mix … do not let it RISE! The dough will be very very soft.
With very very buttery hands, remove dough to very very buttery tray and spread out gently
Trust me, use lots of butter, the dough is VERY soft
Get your toppings together
Mix together cheeses, and bacon bits, and top the dough with half the cheese mix.
Then top with the tomatoes, and finish off with remainder of cheese
I, of course, felt it necessary to add MORE bacon bits.
Bake at 425 for 20 minutes or so til gooey and lightly browned
Top with shredded lettuce and if desired, drizzle with a little more ranch dressing.
Allow to cool slightly, cut (with Scissors!) and serve …
NOTE: next time I think I will forgo the garlic in the ranch. It pulled some of the attention away from the bacon I think …
