All the favorites we love piled high in a sandwich lend themselves beautifully to this pizza—juice tomato, smoky bacon, and leafy greens. An unexpected addition to the mix is the toothsome crunch of peppery radish tossed in with the tangle of lettuce and creamy dressing. The beauty of this recipe is that it is a collision of cheesy tomato pizza hot from the oven and a crisp, cool salad topper garnished with crunchy bacon crumbles. Trust us, you'll love the contrasts. The blend of Italian cheeses listed adds complexity, but you can stick to part-skim mozzarella alone if you would like.

Ingredients

Pizza dough mix

8 oz, 1 (8-inch) individual prebaked pizza crust

Fresh tomato(es)

1 large, thinly sliced

Provolone cheese

4 oz, or 1⁄2 cup shredded reduced-fat Italian cheese blend

Fresh radish(es)

¼ cup(s), sliced, finely chopped

Reduced calorie mayonnaise

2 tsp

Fresh lemon juice

1½ tsp

Table salt

tsp

Black pepper

tsp

Romaine lettuce

1 cup(s), shredded, thinly sliced

Crisp cooked bacon

2 slice(s), crumbled

Uncooked scallion(s)

2 medium, thinly sliced (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 475°F.
  2. On baking sheet, place crust. On top of crust, arrange tomato slices. Over tomatoes, evenly sprinkle cheese. Bake until heated through and cheese is bubbling, 6 to 7 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in medium bowl, combine radishes, mayonnaise, lemon juice, salt, and black pepper; stir in lettuce. Over pizza, evenly spoon lettuce mixture. Sprinkle evenly with bacon and scallions, if using. Cut in half and serve at once.
  4. Serving size: 1⁄2 pizza

Notes

To keep it easy, buy microwave-ready, cooked bacon that needs only a brief turn in the microwave (follow package directions) to freshen and warm it.If you prefer, don’t split the crusts horizontally. Simply bake the tomato and cheese on the pizza crust, until heated through, about 10 minutes. Then sprinkle the lettuce mixture and bacon on the pizza and cut in half crosswise. Serve a half pizza per person.
