Brussels Sprouts & Bacon Pizza


My love for brussels sprouts continues, a few weeks ago I shared my Best Brussels Sprouts Recipe & now I’m sharing this pizza I made last night. It was an impulse dinner, I completely made it up as I went along & it was insanely good. There are leftovers in the fridge calling my name later.

A must for all brussels sprouts lovers!
  • 1 12" pre-made pizza crust
  • Olive oil
  • 10 brussels sprouts, chopped
  • 6 oz bacon (I used turkey bacon), chopped
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ cup of mayo
  • 2 fresh garlic cloves, thinly chopped
  • 4 oz shredded monterey jack cheese
  • ½ cup shredded parmesan cheese
  1. Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees & bake the pizza crust for seven minutes.
  2. In a skillet combine just a touch of olive oil, brussels sprouts, bacon, black pepper & sea salt. Cook over a low heat until the brussels sprouts are charred a bit & the bacon is crunchy. I used turkey bacon so I didn’t have to remove any excess grease or oil, if you are using regular bacon you would want to drain it now.
  3. Add the balsamic vinegar to the bacon & brussels sprouts, mix & set aside.
  4. Take your pizza crust which has been baked & spread a thin layer of mayo across the top.
  5. Evenly distribute garlic slices over the mayo.
  6. Top with monterey jack & parmesan cheeses.
  7. Finally add the bacon & brussels sprouts mixture on top of this.
  8. Return the pizza to the oven for 10-12 minutes until the cheeses are melted & your crust is nice & golden brown.

Serve hot & enjoy immediately. This is by far one of my favorite new recipes & it was fun because it was just a spontaneous late night dinner.

  1. I have actually never tried brussels sprouts. Someone told me once that they taste like cabbage. Is that true? I love cabbage. Anyway I was already craving pizza and this post just makes me want it more.

      You know, if brussels sprouts are uncooked or undercooked they do remind me of cabbage now that you mention it. But when cooked like this I think their flavor is a bit more distinct.

    I LOVE brussel sprouts, especially on the grill, but I am soooo trying this!!!!!

    After seeing this the first time, I was so excited that I just made the sprouts w/ turkey bacon b/c I didn’t have any crust or mix on hand and the combination was amazing. Tonight, I’m going to make the pizza and I cannot wait!
