Actually it wasn’t really all that boring… it was full of yummy garlic and it was a little healthy to, with the whole wheat and all.  Now you have something to put on your new garlic whole wheat pizza dough…THIS!

I have a little bit of an issue, well kind of a addiction of pizza… I may have mentioned it before and will probably mention it again.  I love me some pizza.  I mean the possibilities are endless, you can put anything on it,… yes I mean anything.

Let me know how yours turns out!

Caramelized Onion Brussel Sprouts Bacon and Goat Cheese Pizza

2 Tablespoons of Hummus
2 Tablespoons of Pizza Sauce
1/2 Cup of Mozzarella
5 Brussel Sprouts, Shredded
4 Slices of Bacon
1 Tablespoon of Butter
1 Large Onion, Sliced into Rings
Goat Cheese

Pre-Heat oven to 400 degrees.

Prepare the super awesome whole wheat pizza dough from last week, or your favorite (pick mine!).  Roll it out and place it on a pan, that has been sprayed with non-stick spray.  I used a pizza stone.  I find its easier to roll out the dough onto parchment paper and slide it on the heated stone.

Heat a small-medium pan over medium heat,and cook bacon to desired crispness. **Note:don’t leave and try and fold your laundry, your bacon will burn

Heat a medium pan, over low-medium heat and melt 1 tablespoon of butter.  Add onion, and sprinkle in sugar.  Stir occasionally for about 20 minutes. Set aside. ** Note: The idea is to slowly brown them.  Usually this process can take up to 45 minutes… but we speed it up here with the sugar.  If the onions seem to be burning and getting hard, turn the heat down.

Spread 2 tablespoons of hummus and pizza sauce.  Sprinkle the mozzarella all over (you can add more if you want).  Spread the onions and bacon.  Dot the goat cheese all over the pizza.

Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the crust is brown and the cheese is bubbly.   If your using a pizza stone, leave it in for 5 extra minutes.
