Balsamic Brussels Sprouts & Crispy Bacon Pizza

Pizza is a deep love like no other! I especially love pizza that combines sweet & savory! The balsamic reduction really pairs nicely with the savory, slightly-nutty roasted Brussels and smoky bacon. Friends and family will enjoy this recipe so much, they wont even realize they’re eating vegetables! Try the quick tip for pizza crust if you don’t have any yeast handy.


Brussels Sprouts & Bacon Pizza Recipe:

  1. Heat a large skillet and cook bacon until crispy, 10-12 minutes.
  2. Set aside bacon but leave the grease in the pan.
  3. Add Brussels sprouts and garlic to the pan with the bacon grease.
  4. Cook for 7-10 minutes until Brussels have a nice char on them.
  5. In a mixing bowl, add avocado, garlic, lemon juice, Greek yogurt, salt and pepper.
  6. Mash until a smooth consistency.
  7. Spread avocado mash onto pizza crust, top with brussels, grilled chicken if desired, bacon and feta cheese.
  8. Bake in the oven at 400′ for 10-15 minutes until crust is done.
  9. Top with balsamic reduction and serve.

Greek Yogurt Crust Recipe:

  1. Take Greek yogurt and flour and knead until most of the moisture is out.
  2. Heat a large skillet and coat with oil.
  3. Spread the dough evenly that resembles a pizza shape and cook on each side for 5-7 minutes until golden brown on each side.
  4. Follow above directions to top the pizza crust. This crust is a little bit more doughy but its good! and is great for when you run out of the traditional yeast to use.
