Parmesan Brussels Sprouts and Bacon Pizza

It seems like an eternity since I've cooked dinner so it felt great to cook up something super tasty tonight.  This pizza has all the right ingredients: Parmesan cheese, bacon, and brussels sprouts.  The sauce is a cinch to make and there's very little prep work otherwise.

I may or may not have accidentally over-crisped the bacon, but never fear it still tasted great.

I felt the toppings order here is fairly important.  Sauce first, of course, then bacon, cheese, and finish with brussels sprouts.  I ended with the brussels sprouts so they would brown nicely.

pizza dough
6 bussels sprouts, sliced
4 strips cooked bacon, crumbled
1 cup mozzarella cheese
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp flour
1/4 cup milk
3 tbsp Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp dried thyme

1. Preheat oven to 500.  To make the parmesan sauce: melt butter in a small saucepan.  Whisk in flour then milk, thyme, and salt and pepper to taste.
2.  Spread sauce onto prepared pizza dough.  Top with cooked bacon, cheese, and sliced brussels sprouts in that order. Cook 20 minutes, until dough has browned.

Is that not a beautiful pizza?  All your food groups are getting along so nicely together.

Ok, for realz, you need to go make this pizza. Look at that picture!  It's just asking you to take a bite.
