Yum-o Pizza

This is a standard dinner at our house. We have this at least every 4-6 weeks. I love it because all 4 of us will eat it. I prep the bacon and veges while the boys nap and it is so easy to put it all together right before dinner.

It is a Rachael Ray recipe. I love Rachael...okay she is a bit annoying
but I love her recipes and her magazine.
Here is the recipe:
Roasted Veggie Pizza
From Every Day with Rachael Ray
November 2007
SIX SERVINGS Prep Time: 20 min Cook Time: 15 min

4 slices thick-cut bacon
One 16-ounce package refrigerated pizza dough
6 ounces fontina cheese, grated (1 1/2 cups)
1 cup brussels sprouts, halved lengthwise
3/4 head cauliflower, broken into small florets (about 3 cups)
1/3 cup drained sun-dried tomatoes packed in olive oil, thinly sliced
3 cloves garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1. Position a rack in the bottom third of the oven and preheat to 500°. In a skillet, cook the bacon until nearly crisp, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Reserve the bacon fat.
2. Grease a baking sheet with 1 tablespoon bacon fat, place the pizza dough on top and press and stretch the dough as close to the pan edges as possible. Sprinkle half of the cheese over the dough; bake for 5 minutes.
3. In a pot of boiling, salted water, cook the brussels sprouts and cauliflower for 1 minute. Drain in a colander and rinse with cold water until cool. Transfer to a large bowl and add the sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, salt and plenty of pepper; toss well. Spoon the veggie mixture evenly over the dough, halve the bacon crosswise and scatter on top; sprinkle the pizza with the remaining cheese.
4. Bake the pizza until the crust is golden-brown and the cheese is bubbly, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool slightly before serving.
