BLT Pizza - This Week's Feast

De.Ma.Cuisine's picture
The BLT is one of my all time favorite sandwiches. Bacon is one of my all time favorite foods. Llano Seco has the best bacon I've ever had. And, I love pizza. So... I made a BLT Pizza!! Why is it so good? Because of the: Alfredo sauce (homemade, with lots of garlic and parmesan cheese) (ya know, in place of the mayo), tomatoes, asparagus (it wasn't weird, really!), spinach (the "L"), chives, bacon (duh), and Irish cheddar (not too much, so it didn't overwhelm). And, it's all on top of a homemade pizza crust!
