BBQ Bacon Pizza – A Smaller Crust Recipe
This is my first attempt at a BBQ pizza. I tend to make my pizzas smaller as it’s just me and my wife eating them. And I’m not one for leftovers. Feel free to use your normal fathead recipe.
I use Headbanger’s Kitchen’s recipe as it’s generally smaller, more of a personal size pizza, though my best effort has been me finishing 3/4 of one by myself. So for this one:
Microwave Mozzarella (100 grams) and Cream Cheese (1 oz [28g]) for 1 min in microwave then mix
Add almond flower (50 grams) and any seasoning (I out in about a teaspoon of BBQ seasoning) then mix 30
Add one egg and mix until a dough
Oil or wet hands and press into a circle on parchment paper.
Bake for 12 mins at 400
I have posted this before, but all I do for BBQ sauce is mix Heinz Reduced Sugar (now No Sugar Added) ketchup and Simple Girls BBQ seasoning. In this case, 80g of Ketchup and a tablespoon of the seasoning. You can also use your favorite BBQ Sauce.
I cooked 8 pieces of bacon. I chopped them up first, then cooked them and set the bacon aside. I then chopped up 50g if yellow onion. Use any onion you like, but I think white onions have more carbs (and probably a better flavor :-)). for the cheese I did use mozzarella, but not the shredded kind. I used 3oz of Belgioso mozzarella and just carefully grated. I honestly think this made a huge difference over standard, skim mozzarella. I assembled by first layering the sauce, then onion, then bacon (saving some), then cheese. I then sprinkled a few more bacon pieces on top and baked at 409 for about 10 mins.
This is for half the pizza. I have tried to eat all of one of these before, it the crust is too dense to finish. Plus my wife ate with me so I cut it into 6 equal slices and ate half.
