Pizza on Halloween? Yes, because your kiddos are going to need to eat before they go on their sugar rush. Maybe this pizza is also for everyone staying in while the kids are out trick or treating. This pizza definitely comes in handy on a spooky Friday night.

When we lived in Houston I could go to the nearest pizza store and get fresh dough for pizza night. Since we have moved to Lubbock I’ve been turned away plenty of times for just the dough. Yes, I am lazy sometimes and just want to build the pizza with the dough complete.

I solve all of these issues today on the blog with this goat cheese, bacon and brussels sprout pizza. Yes, I did in fact add bacon to my pizza.

Did you know that Fleischmann’s Yeast has packets just for no knead pizza dough? You don’t even have to wait 10 minutes for the yeast to activate.   I was sold! Now on to the creative aspect of this pizza…. the toppings. I was tired of the pepperoni or all veggie pizzas that we make all the time. It was time to step outside of the box and experiment with cheese and other items.
