Mini Post - Carmalized Onion and Peppered Bacon Flatbread

We have had the best weather here in Wyoming the last couple of days and then it got cold again. Such a bummer but that is the life in Wyoming, you never know what you are going to get. The kids were playing in the sprinklers just yesterday! 

I found this delicious recipe on Pillsbury. I am always looking for quick easy things to make for my kids for when they come home from school and this looks like something they would love with a few changes. My husband and I would love this recipe the way it is. I will probably make it more kid friendly for them. 

Caramelized Onion and Peppered Bacon Flat bread


¼  cup firmly packed brown sugar
¼  teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
1/8  teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
8  slices thick-sliced bacon
4  cups thinly sliced sweet onion (about 1 lb)
2  cloves garlic, minced
2  tablespoons Butter
1  can Pillsbury® refrigerated thin pizza crust
1  can diced tomatoes, drained
2  cups (8 oz) shredded mozzarella cheese
½  cup grated Parmesan cheese
¼  cup thinly sliced fresh basil leaves


1.       Heat oven to 400°F. Line 15x10-inch pan with sides with aluminum foil. Place cooling rack in pan.

2.      In large resealable food-storage plastic bag, combine brown sugar, black pepper and cayenne; shake to combine. Separate bacon slices and place in bag; shake to coat. Place bacon on rack in pan.
3.      Bake 25 to 30 minutes, turning once halfway through baking, or until bacon is browned and thoroughly cooked. Cool completely. Chop bacon; set aside.

4.      Meanwhile, in 12-inch skillet, cook onions and garlic in butter over medium heat 15 to 20 minutes, stirring frequently, or until onions are golden brown. Remove from heat; set aside.
5.      Spray15x10-inch pan with sides with Crisco® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray. Unroll pizza crust dough in pan; press dough to edges of pan. Bake 7 minutes. Remove from oven.

6.      Spread onion mixture over partially baked crust; top with drained tomatoes. Sprinkle with mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses; top with bacon.

7.      Bake 7 to 11 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheeses are melted.
8.     Remove from oven; sprinkle with basil.

With a recipe like this you can change it up anyway that you want. Just add cheese and make cheese bread, add some pepperoni, anything that sounds good! Another recipe with endless possibilities.

Thanks for stopping by!
