Grilled Chicken, Bacon and Spinach Flatbread Pizza.
Don’t fret, friends.
I didn’t cheat on my Lenten promise to give up bacon.
Although I’m about THIS.CLOSE.
Especially since I have came up with some incredible bacon recipes in the past week. Since I am not eating it, my mind is on bacon overload.
I made this flatbread pizza a few weeks ago, at the same time when I made the roasted veggie and goat cheese flatbread pizza. If you don’t believe me, ask Caitlin – her pretty, little face ate some with me.
I have been wanting more ever since. I am a true glutton.
The best part was seasoning the dough and slightly baking it before adding the toppings. It’s a tiny bit ‘puffy’ for being a flatbread, but I’m calling it what I want.
It’s my dough and I’ll cry if I want to.
Before I added the chicken and the bacon, I made the most sinful, delicious spinach mix. I whipped cream cheese, fresh, sauteed spinach and garlic, and a tons of parmesan cheese together to create a ‘sauce.’
Mr. How Sweet took one look at the green cream and insisted that ‘that stuff’ better not be going on his pizza. Clearly, this one was his pizza since, heaven forbid, he eat pizza with only vegetables and no meat. We have sharing issues in this house. It’s preparing me for motherhood.
I used some of my good ole’ trickery, and told him that ‘of course it was going on the vegetable pizza’. (Ha. I knew I had him. He wouldn’t pass up bacon + chicken.)
As usual, I was correct. One bite in, he exclaimed how delicious it was, never even asking about the spinach mixture.
This pizza was incredibly hearty and filling, with a vast array of flavors.
Loaded with grilled chicken, crispy bacon, and lots of bubbly, golden cheese – you just can’t go wrong.
