It does sound interesting ... and definately worth giving a try. Thanks for the idea!

Now, Uncle Bob and I will have to get busy to come up with a pizza with a crispy cornbread crust topped with onions, okra, smoked ham hocks, and diced tomaties.
........ Ah ha! Another idea to work on, but later. Currently I am putting the finishing touches on another wild idea. I plan to launch this new creation to the Pizza World soon. Stay tuned............!!

no mayo. Id use Ken's honey mustard and top it with mozzerela. little bits of chicken or turkey would sell the dish along with the bacon, esp. if you cook the chicken or turkey in bacon fat. mayo could be served on side as a "dip" or "Spread"

Americans have the tendency to put anything you can possibly think of on a pizza. And why not, if you like it? It makes a meal out of leftovers, and as I understand it, that was the origin of pizza in the first place.

I've never had a BLT pizza -- not sure I would want lettuce on pizza, but the concept sounds good. (much better than the California habit of ham and pineapple on pizza! )

This pizza is extraordinary! I know it's probably not the healthiest, but anything in moderation, right?

I get this from a local pizza place - thin crust. There's a slim layer of mayo
covered with chopped bacon. Then topped with lettuce and tomatoes. No sauce, no cheese... but the most delicious pizza I've ever had.

Has anyone heard of something like this?
Been there. Done that. Except - the lettuce is tossed w mayo or salad dressing of choice & the salad is piled on to the hot bread/crust. (I like sliced avocados on mine.)

California Pizza Kitchen has some interesting ideas. There's even a Cajun Pizza and so much more.

California Pizza Kitchen | Menu | Pizzas

I remember back when Wolfgang's Spago was off of Sunset Blvd (dunno if it's still there); think he started what I think of as Designer pizza appetizers. When I went with a few people, we ordered his pizza appies and shared a taste of each. If I recall correctly, there was a smoked salmon & caviar pizza appy. Guessing Planet Hollywood jumped on the designer? pizza appy bandwagon as well, & may have a few versions of their own.

Last week(?) (posted under what's for dinner), I made a Caesar Salmon Salad Pizza (& oven roasted mushroom soup) for dinner. Came out great. (Next time I'll try shrimp.) Chopped salads served on pizza dough or pita bread is pretty popular here. I'm waiting for an Elvis Pizza - peanut butter, bananas & bacon.

You can come up with some pretty healthy pizza ideas using fresh tomatoes, etc - omitting the tomatoe sauce. Have fun with it.

Thought that might peek your interest UB. Check out the California Pizza Kitchen link above....


Blackened chicken and spicy Andouille sausage with a Creole sauce, roasted red & yellow peppers, mild onions and Mozzarella cheese. Topped with green onions.

Re Pineapple and ham Pizza being a California habit, it's called a Hawaiian Pizza - not indicative of California. It's probably on every Pizza menu throughout the world.

Try a Thai Chicken Pizza w peanuts, eggplant/caponata pizza, or a Steak Salad... different breads - pita, foccia flat bread.

Uncle Bob, thinking out loud, how about a cornbread Pizza Crust & a good dose of Tabsaco?
