Bacon Asparagus Pizza


Ingredients:
  • 5 thick slices Bacon, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 unbaked Pizza crust
  • 1 pound shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup halved Cherry or Grape tomatoes
  • 1 (11 ounce) log fresh Chevre (goat cheese)
  • 1 teaspoon Red pepper flakes
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste.
Preparation:
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F(190 degrees C)
  • Place bacon in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook for a few minutes to release most of the grease, but do not cook until crisp. Remove to paper towels to drain.
  • Spread the pizza crust out on a pizza pan or large baking sheet. Top with mozzarella cheese, bacon pieces, asparagus, and tomatoes. Dot with goat cheese, then season with red pepper flakes and black pepper.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until the crust is golden brown underneath when you lift it up to take a peek. Let cool for about 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
