I’m so excited about this Bacon and Brussels Sprouts Pizza recipe! And that’s because my family was freaking out with enjoyment when I made it last week.

My Go-To Grain-Free Pizza Dough: Simple Mills

You can most certainly add these pizza toppings to any crust, but we were excited to try the (very clean) almond flour/cauliflower pizza dough mix from Simple Mills. We are by no means a grain-free family, but it was honestly nice just to have something out of the ordinary. Plus, since this crust is grain-free, there is no time required for the dough to rise. So it made things super easy and simple – like the name says – which I very much enjoyed. And it was delicious! I’ll definitely be making this exact dish again soon!

Ingredients
  

  • 1/2 recipe pizza dough See note (enough to make two 8" crusts) or one "clean" store bought variety like Simple Mills** pizza dough almond flour mix
  • 3 pieces bacon
  • 1 shallot diced
  • 1/2 pound brussels sprouts trimmed and cut in half
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese freshly grated
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese freshly grated

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven according to the pizza dough directions and prebake the crust if necessary.
  • Meanwhile, in a skillet over medium heat, cook the bacon for several minutes on both sides until brown and crispy. Reserve the grease in the pan and place the bacon on a plate lined with a paper towel. Crumble the bacon.
  • Add the diced shallots to the pan with the grease and cook on medium for 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Turn up the heat to medium-high and add the Brussels sprouts to the pan. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes more while stirring. Add 1/4 cup water, cover with a lid, and steam for 2 to 3 minutes. Check on the sprouts and add more water if necessary. You don't want the pan to dry out completely while they're being steamed.
  • Spread the ricotta cheese on the pizza crust and sprinkle with the mozzarella and Parmesan. Top with the Brussels sprouts mixture, then the crumbled bacon, and bake until the cheese is brown and bubbly on top, about 10 to 15 minutes (depending on which crust you used). Enjoy!

8 thoughts on “Bacon and Brussels Sprouts Pizza Recipe”

  1. Hello Lisa! I am a huge fan of your nutrition philosophy and website. Unfortunately, my diet is extremely limited due to my inability to consume gluten or dairy (and i’m sensitive to things with soy as a primary ingredient such as Tofu or Soy Milk). I understand the easiest way to get around this is to eat grains that are “naturally” gluten free such as brown rice or snacks such as fruits with nut butter, etc. I am looking for the best next options on the market in terms of Gluten Free and Dairy Free that have an ingredient list that is clean. I have various digestive issues so sometimes it can be hard finding things that agree with my system that don’t have various GUMS, etc, which seem to often aggravate my system. Ideally, making your own is great….and i’m totally open to and thankful for recipes but I’m also looking for ideas the best —store bought breads, healthy packaged snacks, dairy free substitutes (for things such as cheese, milk, etc.) for when I’m wanting something more convenient. If you have any suggestions, I would highly appreciate it!!! Thank-you SO much.

  2. Wow, if that isn’t inspiring I don’t know what is. I usually don’t experiment a lot with pizza – the boys prefer the classic version. But my girlfriends will come over this Saturday and they all love to experiment in the kitchen. I will impress them with this one, cross your fingers!

  3. Man, that looks delicious. I’ve never even thought about putting brussels sprouts on pizza. So different! Did you cut the sprouts in half, or just leave them whole? I’ve also never heard of Simple Mills, but I want to give them a try. I’m always on the lookout for clean and easy mixes. Thanks for the great ideas!
