And now something a little different :-)

My DH emailed me a recipe (which he rarely does) so I thought I'd suprise him by making it for dinner tonight. While it is not your conventional pizza, it is complex, cheesy and incredibly wonderful. We will be making this pizza again!

Pizza a la Carbonara


1 10-ounce package refrigerated pizza dough
3 green onions, sliced
1/2 pound (10 to 11 slices) bacon, crisp-cooked, drained, and crumbled
Parmesan Pizza Sauce
1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
1-1/2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese (6 ounces)

1. Lightly grease an 11- to 13-inch pizza pan. Unroll pizza dough and transfer to greased pan, pressing dough out with your hands. Build up edges slightly. Prick generously with a fork. Bake in a 425 degree F oven for 7 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned.

2. Spread Parmesan Pizza Sauce over hot crust. Top with bacon, mushrooms, and green onions. Sprinkle with Monterey Jack cheese. Bake about 12 minutes more or until cheese melts and sauce is bubbly. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Makes 4 servings.
