BLT Pizza


BLT Pizza
from this week's meal plan

Larry and I are really crazy about BLT Pizza. It makes a great "girls" lunch. It's a bread, meat, vegetables and salad all rolled into one!


Tuesday - BLT Pizza

1 refrigerated pizza dough
½ cup mayonnaise
4 sliced plum tomatoes
8 slices precooked bacon, cooked according to pkg. directions and crumbled

2 cups of shredded Italian cheese blend
1 - 2 cups torn lettuce
Ranch dressing, to taste

Spread dough with mayo; layer with tomatoes and bacon. Bake for about 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Sprinkle cheese over pizza. Return to oven for about 5 - 10 minutes, or until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted

Top with torn lettuce and drizzle with ranch dressing. Cut into wedges.


Ways I saved money:

I used a coupon on the pizza dough.
I bought the bacon in a bulk package.
I used store-brand cheese.

Ways I saved calories:

We mostly use light mayo, but I think the "real" stuff is better in this dish. So, I used full-fat mayo and cut it back to 1/3 cup.
We used a light ranch dressing.
