I’ve roasted them with grapes, topped a brat with them, made a salad, and now have made two pizza’s with them. Our first brussels sprouts pizza  was Scallop Bacon Brussels Sprout Pizza and it was delicious….brussels sprouts and scallops with bacon……yum!

Sometimes, you just know flavors that pair well together. Bacon and brussels sprouts, goat cheese, roasted garlic, and parmesan. Is it a traditional pizza…..oh heavens no, but the flavors are so perfect together, they deserve a turn on a pizza crust.

Marinara was the odd duck out for this recipe, but I needed a sauce and I had a jar of it in the pantry, so I took a chance. When making a recipe, I will get so excited over it, I neglect to write things down….such was the case of the marinara, so I don’t remember the brand. It had a touch of heat too it that was right up TIm’s alley. For all my misgivings about the tomato part… it was perfect.

Precooking the brussels sprouts until they are tender crisp gives them a light caramelization and enhances the flavor. Bacon fat doesn’t hurt either.
