White pizza is one of my favorites and tonight I decided to experiment
with some different flavors. I have been on a broccoli kick lately and
thought that some bacon would be a great partner with it. And I don't
know about you but I can't imagine pizza without mushrooms. Gasp!
I adore them so....... on they went.
I usually try to make my own pizza crusts but in a pinch the store
bought ones do just fine. It makes life so easy when trying to get a
fast dinner made after work. I'm not one to get all fussy about...just
about any product. If it tastes good and it works for you......use it!
My kids liked this version so well that I'm going to try another version
soon. I think the next version it will be........Spinach, Artichoke hearts
and Pine nut white pizza. Mmmm... The possibilities are endless.
I'm getting hungry again already!
