Craving for a satisfying cheesy pizza full of the fall favors? This Brussels Sprouts Smoked Cheddar Pizza might be exactly what you need!
Keep it Short
Let me keep it short today and go straight to the point.
Remember, a few posts back, when I shared the recipe for these lovely Pumpkin Dulce De Leche Mini Layer Cakes, I mentioned I had a delicious pizza for my late breakfast? Yes, I was talking about this Brussels Sprouts Smoked Cheddar Pizza. On a side note, I also made Butternut Squash Pizza which didn’t turn out perfect (It was a little bland) so it’s not going to be posted here until perfected.
But at least this Brussels Sprouts Smoked Cheddar Pizza was delicious! At that point, I had never tried a pizza with brussels sprouts, and I would never though it might be one of my favorite toppings since that.
Indeed, what’s not to like about this? Shredded brussels sprouts and red onions sautéd until soft and slightly caramelized, mixed with aromatic chicken bacon and smoked paprika, and then generously sprinkled with smoked cheddar? Well, tell me it doesn’t sound mouthwatering, kids!
Brussels Sprouts Smoked Cheddar Pizza
There are few things I’d like to mention.
First, you can use real bacon if desired.
Second, keep in mind that the amount of dough would be enough for two large pizzas. So you may like to cut the ingredients in half or make two pizzas…what about butternut squash?
Third, don’t sauté the Brussels sprouts and onions too long. I cooked it for about 8 minutes, but 5 would be more that enough. You don’t need it get caramelized or changed the color, this will make the oven. What we need here is to get the veggies soft and almost translucent.
And lastly, you can add a little of pine nuts which would introduce a lovely crunch and flavor.
As you see, this Brussels Sprouts Smoked Cheddar Pizza is a delightful season pizza which would be great on a chilly autumn day…or your late breakfast…or perhaps, your Thanksgiving lunch/dinner!
