Ingredients Needed for Ricotta, Bacon and Brussels Sprouts Pizza

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
7 ounces of brussels sprouts
1 store-bought pizza dough
5 ounces of ricotta
1 cup low moisture mozzarella, grated
3 ounces of bacon, chopped
salt

How to Cook Ricotta, Bacon and Brussels Sprouts Pizza

  1. Heat 2 teaspoons of vegetable oil in a skillet over low heat, then add the Brussel sprouts. Cook and stir for 8 minutes.
  2. Coat a pan with the remaining teaspoon of oil and add the pizza dough. If needed, fit it inside by folding and rolling its edges towards the inside a little. This will ensure the pizza will have an outer rim.
  3. Evenly spread the ricotta over the dough. Top with the mozzarella, bacon, and cooked Brussel sprouts. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Fry for 2 – 3 minutes over low heat, then bake for 20 minutes at 430⁰F/220⁰C.
