Shredded Brussel Sprout and Bacon Pizza

I made a salad for a small get together and forgot to take it out of the fridge. So the next day I threw the salad on top of some pizza dough and came up with this unique, savory pizza that doesn’t just sound good, it is good. 

I know pizza can be one of those foods that many of us think we need to order take-out for, but I love showing you that homemade pizza is actually so easy!

Creating this shredded Brussels sprout and bacon pizza is a delightful twist on a classic and by using up the leftover Manchego and Havarti cheese I had in my fridge it gave it that savory taste without even adding marinara sauce.


1 package of store-bought pizza crust

4 tablespoons olive oil

1 small onion, sliced

1 tablespoon garlic, minced

1 1/2 cups shredded Brussels sprouts

1 cup grated Manchego cheese, shredded

1 cup Havarti cheese, shredded

3/4 cup crisped bacon, chopped

salt and pepper

Red chili flakes if desired


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

  2. Roll out pizza dough.

  3. Drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil on a parchment-lined baking sheet and set rolled-out pizza dough on top.

  4. Mix onions, Brussels sprouts and salt and pepper with the remaining olive oil.

  5. Sprinkle 1/2 cup Manchego, and 1/2 cup Havarti cheese, then layer the Brussels sprout mixture over the cheese.

  6. Add the rest of the cheese and top with the bacon.

  7. Bake 15-25 minutes or until the crust is golden and the cheese has melted.

  8. Slice and enjoy!
