Homemade Sauceless Pizza with Brussel Sprouts, Mozzarella, Shallots, and Bacon (this is my fav pizza recipe ever)!

Standard

I have been on a pizza kick lately… well actually for my whole life. I love pizza but what I have begun to love even more is making my own at home. After countless different versions of topping combinations, store bought dough, homemade dough, sauce or sauceless, making pizzas until my hands ache parties I have decided that THIS recipe is hands down the best pizza you can make at home! This would be a great Superbowl Pizza!

  1. I love pizza, too, and yours looks good. If you like thin, crispy crust, you might want to invest in a pizza stone and peel: my sister-in-law gave me the stone and one of my friends gave me the peel and my pizzas just get better and better.

  2. Thanks!!! I have a stone that is my mother-in-laws that I have been using and I love it, I need one for myself! I will have to look up what a peel is though… Cheers to good pizza!

  3. Yummmm…What time is the Super Bowl Party?…. actually what time will your awesome Pizza’s be ready?….You make the best Pizza’s I ever had…not just saying this because your my daughter…I’m real serious…you need to open a quaint restaurant in Lago…they won’t know what hit them……….go for it.

  4. would you email me a few slices – they look delicious – a snowy day in maine, how’s texas doing so far this winter?

    • If I could email some of these slices I’d be a rich girl! Texas is a hot 76 today a few days ago it was in the 30’s, you never know what your going to get out here. I’d like some snow at least once a year…. 🙂

  5. That pizza looks incredible – how did you get that crust looking so perfect? Did you squish it over with your fingers or something? Just beautiful. I’m getting tired of tomato sauce on pizza (maybe that’s sacrilegious to say?!) but I’m really loving the idea of a pizza “sans sauce” at the moment.
