Bacon, Mushroom, Mozzarella, and Caramelized Onion Pizza {Secret Recipe Club}


It’s that time again!  Time for the Secret Recipe Club.  This month I was assigned Danielle’s blog A Day in the Life. Danielle writes about the happenings in her life while raising two boys.  While browsing through her recipes I came across this pizza and knew that it’s what I was going to make.   The tomato and goat cheese risotto, black bean and sweet potato burgers, and dulce de leche bars with roasted white chocolate also look fantastic though and I really want to try those.

We have pizza nearly every Friday night and I am always looking for different varieties to try.  I veganized this recipe by making tempeh bacon and used Daiya non-dairy mozzarella cheese.  I also used my standard pizza crust recipe that you can find here.

This was a delicious pizza and I will definitely be making it again.

  1. I’m so glad you enjoyed the flavor combination. I’m attempting to swing my family in the vegan direction, so it was interesting to see your modifications. I love Daiya cheeses!!

  2. Oh, boy…definitely adding this to the TOP of my pizza list. Love the flavor combination! Is it too early for lunch??

  3. I love pizza and yours looks amazing. Thanks for sharing with us.

  4. I love making pizza and Fridays tend to be pizza nights around here too. Every once in a while, I try to sneak in a new style of pizza (much to the hubs’ chagrin). This sounds like one I will try. Great SRC post. (I will have to use the real bacon though!)

  5. This is one LOADED pizza – that’s right up my alley! Great SRC pick!

  6. This looks so good! When I make pizza, I generally default to the same toppings, will have to change thins up and try this out!

  7. Jamie…this looks absolutely delicious! With so many ways to make it…I think I’m going to start a Friday night pizza ritual….and I may just start with this one! : )

    • Friday night pizza nights are so fun! And it makes for one less meal during the week to plan for!

  8. Sounds delish! Its been a long time since I have made pizza, I am thinking I need to do so soon!

  9. Stumbled onto your blog via the blog hop and just wanted to show you some blog luv! def enjoyed this post :) new follower!
