Blueberry & Bacon Pizza

One of our favorite pizza joints in Cary closed a few years ago, and we’ve missed their unique flavor combinations (hello, pimento cheese & jalapeno pizza).  When the first berries started turning deep blue this year, we created a pizza that would’ve been worthy of their fantastic menu!

Blueberry & Bacon Pizza

  • Ingredients
    • Pre-Made pizza crust (you could also use a pie crust – that’s what we had!)
    • Precooked Bacon, crumbled
    • 1 pint Fresh Blueberries
    • 1/2 cup Ricotta cheese 
    • 1/2 cup Mozzarella cheese 
    • 1 Red Onion, thinly sliced
    • Dash of Garlic Salt
    • Dash of dried Basil (as much or as little as you like) 
    • Sprinkle of Red Pepper Flakes
    • Arugula (optional garnish)
  • Directions
    • Preheat oven to 425 degrees
    • Stretch out pizza dough and place on baking sheet
    • Generously sprinkle garlic salt, dried basil, and red pepper flakes on dough
    • Cover dough with thin layer of ricotta cheese, leaving edges bare for crust
    • Place crumbled bacon, thinly sliced red onion, and blueberries onto pizza
    • Top pizza with Mozzarella cheese
    • Bake in preheated oven at 425 for 15 minutes (or until crust is done and cheese is melted)
    • Optional: cover with Arugula prior to serving
    • Enjoy!
