A few years ago a friend and I were dining at the delicious California Pizza Kitchen and she ordered the BLT pizza. At the time I thought she was crazy! There were so many yummy pizza options and that one seemed like the weirdest choice to me—until the pizza came out.
I was immediately mad at myself for not ordering the same thing! A yummy thin crust pizza baked with mozzarella, bacon and tomatoes in a tangy sauce, topped with yummy shredded lettuce!
