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 (6-inch) individual prebaked pizza crust

fresh tomato(es)

1 large, thinly sliced

Provolone cheese

4 oz, or 1/2 of shredded light Italian 4-cheese blend (mozzarella, provolone, Asiago, and Romano)

fresh radish(es)

¼ cup(s), sliced, finely chopped

reduced calorie mayonnaise

1 tsp

fresh lemon juice

1 tsp

romaine lettuce

1 cup(s), shredded, shredded

crisp cooked bacon

2 slice(s), crisp and crumbled

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 475°F.
  2. Split the pizza crust horizontally to make 2 rounds; place on a baking sheet. Arrange the tomato slices on top of the crusts. Sprinkle the cheese evenly over the tomatoes. Bake until heated through and the cheese melts, about 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, combine the radishes, mayonnaise, and lemon juice in a medium bowl; stir in the lettuce. Transfer the pizzas to 2 serving plates. Spoon the lettuce mixture evenly over the pizzas. Sprinkle evenly with the bacon and serve at once. Yields 1 pizza per person.

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.
