Leek & "Bacon" Pizza


Can you say scrumptious? This awesome pizza with leeks, vegetarian bacon, green olive spread and Gorgonzola was indulgent and utterly amazing!

I used Trader Joe's plain pizza dough and spread it with one of my favorite flavor ingredients, green olive spread (I get mine from Cost Plus $4).

I cooked one big fat leek (chopped) in butter over med. low heat for about 6-8 minutes.

Topped the olive spread with a little grated mozzarella and the leeks. Grated about 2 oz of Gorgonzola over the leeks then topped it with 4 crumbled slices of Morningstar Bacon (vegetarian, but not vegan). Baked on a pizza stone at 450 for 10 minutes.

The blend of all these flavors was just incredible. Hubby just kept repeating, "You've really outdone yourself with this one."

I love pizza! I've never had green olive spread, but I bet I would like it. I'll have to keep my eyes open for that ingredient.

I'm having my first cup of coffee of the morning and scrolled down past this entry and had to stop. YUM! Sounds wicked! *sigh* in my part of France vegetarian bacon, you ask? The French would reply, "What's the point?" So no vegetarian bacon around here.
