Prep time: 30 min | Cook time: 20 min | Total time: 50 min

Ingredients

  • 15 brussels sprouts, halved
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 pound Refrigerated Pizza Dough, my Honey Whole Wheat Pizza Dough works great
  • 10 strips cooked, crumbled bacon
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Creamy Parmesan Rosemary Sauce

  • 2 tablespoons Land O’Lakes Spreadable Butter with Canola Oil
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons shredded Parmesan Cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh rosemary leaves, finely chopped

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. and line a large baking sheet with a silpat liner or parchment paper.
  2. Place brussels sprouts onto prepared baking sheet and drizzle lightly with olive oil then season with salt and pepper. Cook for 25 minutes, until golden brown and tender. Remove from oven. Press pizza dough onto a pizza pan lightly sprayed with cooking spray. Press into about a 12 inch round.
  3. To prepare sauce, place butter into a small saucepan over medium heat. When melted whisk in flour, salt and pepper. Whisk in milk until thickened and hot. Whisk in Parmesan cheese, stirring until melted. Stir in rosemary leaves then pour onto pizza dough, spreading to 1/2 inch from edges. Place roasted brussels sprouts evenly over sauce then top with cooked bacon pieces. Top with shredded cheese and bake for about 20 minutes, until crust is cooked through and cheese is melted. Let cool for 5 minutes before cutting into slices.
