This recipe came from EveryDay with Rachael Ray.  I had everything in my house except the blue cheese, so I decided to splurge (blue cheese isn’t cheap) and buy some.  You either like blue cheese or you don’t, it’s just one of those cheeses.  If you’re not a fan, I think leaving it off would be fine.  The recipe also suggests adding bacon, which I’m sure would add a nice flavor and make the pizza taste even more like a BLT.

Blue Cheese, Lettuce and Tomato Pizza

3/4 cup grape tomatoes, halved

1/4 cup red onion, thinly sliced

2 cloves garlic, finely chopped


salt and pepper

1 lb store-bought pizza dough, shaped into 2 disks (I used sm pitas for individual sized pizzas)

1 cup (4 oz) crumbled blue cheese

1/2 cup (2 oz) shredded mozzarella cheese

1 romane heart, thinly sliced

5 large basil leaves, torn

In a large bowl toss together the tomatoes, onion, garlic and 1 T EVOO; season with salt and papper.

Drizzle the remaining 1 T EVOO on a baking sheet; turn the dough disks in the oil.  Press each disk onto a 10-inch round.

Place the dough on the grill, cover and cook until it bubbles on top and grill marks appear undearneath, about 3 minutes.  Flip the crusts and top with the blue cheese and mozzarella.  Cover and grill until the cheese is melted and the crusts are golden, about 5 minutes.

Add the romaine and basil to the tomato mixture and toss to dress.  Top the pizza with the salad.
