Bakin’ With Bacon


Greetings Baconians! 

Another Saturday in the kitchen here at the castle – I’ve told the regular chef here to take the morning off while I destroy his kitchen and make a big mess.

I’ve got another easy recipe for you today………….I love “EASY” don’t you??

May I present what to me ought to probably be called “easy pizza” but instead it’s called Bacon and Tomato Squares………..I’ll let YOU decide what YOU want to call it – I know the one thing that is true no matter what you decide to name this dish is that it’s DELICIOUS and super easy and makes a great snack, appetizer OR dinner!

Bacon and Tomato Squares


  1. Preheat oven 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Place bacon in a large skillet over medium heat. Fry bacon until crisp. Drain on paper towels.
  3. Crumble bacon into a medium-size mixing bowl. Mix in bell pepper, tomatoes, and basil. In a separate small bowl, combine mayonnaise and garlic.
  4. Roll pizza crust into a 12×15 inch rectangular baking sheet. Spread the mayonnaise mixture evenly over the crust. Sprinkle the bacon mixture over the mayonnaise, and top the entire pizza with cheese.
  5. Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until the top is bubbly and the crust is golden brown. Cool and cut the into 24 squares.

I’d say the 24 square size is probably good “appetizer” size…………cut in larger squares if you’re going to just eat this like a slice of pizza.   It truly IS pizza when you think about it though – same ingredients and a pizza crust.   Why it’s called “Bacon and Tomato Squares” is anyone’s guess!


See?  Excitement.   Trust me – you want to make this super easy pizza ASAP.   Then you’ll wish you’d made TWO.    HAHAHA

It’s good to be King…….

    • Me too Cupcake……bacon on ANYTHING has to be a winner right? This is one of Mom’s favorite EASY recipes……! I hope you and your Mom are doing well? Any news on your Mom’s writing projects? Had any good walks at the park lately??

      Love, Teddy


  1. That sounds delicious! BTW, have you ever substituted sun dried tomatoes? (Actually, they were dried in our food processor, but they are called sun dried.) We don’t have fresh ones on hand and I’m always looking for ways to used the stored ones.


  2. That sounds really good. I will print out the recipe so I can use it the next time I need an appetizer idea. Have a great day! XO


  3. Now the peep can’t eat bacon on account of her bein’ a veggie and all, but the rest of the stuff? She can have that! And this mornin’, her tomato seeds are up. She’s droolin’ already, just thinkin’ about makin’ this once those tomatoes are growin’. purrs


    • Oh boy – homegrown tomatoes are so much more tasty than store bought. They’d be yummy on this pizza and even though I’m a bacon-holic, this is just as good without the bacon!

      Hugs, Teddy


  4. These sound nommy, but Mom says for her, she’d leave off the onions and green peppers. The cat and dog are pretty funny! Did you get any bacon today, Teddy? XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer
