BLT Pizza

I am such a big fan of a big, juicy BLT sandwich.  Always have, always will.  I remember the first time I had a BLT pizza, I swear, I heard heavenly angels singing.  It was a glorious moment.  I love bringing that classic flavor combo to our family pizza night with this delicious recipe!

1 uncooked pizza crust*
1 large ripe tomato, cut into thin slices
1 teaspoon dried oregano
½ teaspoon black pepper
¼ cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 center cut bacon slices cooked and chopped
8 oz fresh mozzarella, shredded
1 cup lettuce, shredded

Place a pizza stone on the bottom rack of an oven and preheat to 400 degrees.  Arrange tomato slices on a parchment lined baking sheet and sprinkle with oregano and pepper. Place baking sheet on baking stone. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Tomatoes should no longer look wet. Remove tomatoes but keep the pizza stone warming in the oven.  Increase the oven temperature to 500.  Combine the mayo, oil and garlic.  Using well floured hands, pat dough into a on parchment paper.  I always use my favorite homemade pizza crust* but you can use a store bought crust if you want.  (These directions are for the homemade crust.  Follow the baking directions that come with your crust, if you choose to use something else.)  Brush mayo mixture over crust leaving a 1 inch border. Top with tomatoes, bacon and cheese.  Carefully pull the hot stone out of the oven, slide the parchment paper with the pizza onto the pan. Return to the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes, until cheese is bubbly and crust is golden brown.  Brush crust with olive oil right after baking.  Top with shredded lettuce before serving.

*This pizza crust recipe makes enough dough for 2 pizzas.
