Spinach Carbonara Pizza

Spinach Carbonara Pizza
Carbonara, a creamy white sauce flavored with bacon, gives this pizza a deliciously unconventional look and flavor.

1 pkg Wildtree Pizza Dough
6 slices bacon, divided
1 pkg (6 oz) fresh baby spinach leaves (about 8 cups)
2 garlic cloves, pressed
1 oz grated fresh Parmesan cheese (about ¼ cup packed)
1 cup prepared Wildtree Alfredo Sauce
¼ tsp coarsely ground black pepper
2 cups (8 oz) shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
Additional coarsely ground black pepper (optional)

1. Prepare Wildtree pizza according to package directions. Bake 10-12 minutes or until crust begins to brown; remove pan from oven to cooling rack.

2. Meanwhile, slice bacon into ¼-in. pieces; cook in sauté pan over medium heat 5-6
minutes or until crisp. Remove bacon from pan; drain on paper towels and chop half of it. In mixing bowl, combine chopped bacon, Parmesan cheese, black pepper and Alfredo Sauce.

3. Meanwhile, drain most of the bacon fat from pan, then add pressed garlic, saute for a minute and add spinach and saute another minute to wilt. Set aside for assembly.

4. To assemble pizza, spread sauce to edges of crust. Top sauce completely with 1 cup of the mozzarella cheese, spinach mixture and remaining bacon. Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese and additional black pepper, if desired.

5. Bake until cheese is melted and golden brown. Remove from oven to cooling rack. Cut and serve.
