Bacon and Leek Pizza

Pizza Bacon, Leeks & Gruyere

This is a really different combination, but it is well worth a try.  The bacon is crispy and flavorful and the leeks are soft and delicious.  The combination of goat cheese and gruyere bring the flavors all together. 

 

Ingredients

3 Leeks, cut and washed

1 Lb Bacon

4 oz Goat Cheese

8 oz Gruyere Cheese, grated

Pizza Dough – from the pizza store or supermarket

 

Instructions

Preheat oven to 450º.

In a cast iron skillet, fry the bacon until crisp.  Set aside.  When cool, crumble or cut the bacon.  Remove all but 1 tablespoon of the bacon fat from the skillet.  Add the cleaned, cut leeks and saute until they are caramelized.  Remove from the pan and set aside.  

 

Instructions

Preheat oven to 450º.

There are two ways that I like to cook pizza at home.  I have used both and they are equally good.

Option #1

Stretch the dough into a 9-inch round pizza pan or a baking sheet.  Brush with olive oil. Sprinkle with oregano or Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.  Bake until golden brown. 

Remove the crust from the oven.  Top with warm Leeks and bacon.  Add the Gruyere. Cut the Goat Cheese into small pieces and dot all over the pizza.  Put back into the oven until the cheese melts. 

Option #2

Place a pizza stone or an inverted baking sheet on the lowest oven rack.  Let the oven heat up to 450º – 500º.  

Lightly flour a pizza peel. If you don’t have a pizza peel a piece of parchment paper will work just fine.  Top with the warm Leeks and bacon.  Add the Gruyere. Cut the Goat Cheese into small pieces and dot all over the pizza.  

Slide the pizza off the peel and onto the stone or baking pan in the oven.  If you are using parchment paper, put the paper with the pizza into the oven on the pizza stone or the inverted baking sheet until the crust is golden brown.
