Carbonara inspired pizza



Pizza Dough – Recipe here. I used the same recipe but stretch out the dough thinner than usual because I feel that this pizza would fit a thin crust better.


For the sauce, I used this recipe from The Cooking Photographer as a guideline.

Here is what I used and did:


Garlic cream sauce:

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 tablespoon butter

2 garlic cloves (minced)

1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

1/3 cup Romano Cheese (or Parmesan, add a pinch of salt if using Parmesan)

1/4 teaspoon Black pepper


Step 1: Melt butter and olive oil

Step 2: Add minced garlic, saute till fragrant (not browned or burnt)

Step 3: Turn heat to medium low and add cream and pepper

Step 4: Add cheese and whisk constantly

Step 5: Reduce sauce until thick consistency.




For the pizza (enough for a medium pizza):


1 chicken breast (cooked and cut up)

6 strips of bacon

1 cup sliced mushrooms

1/2 cup chopped parsley

Parmesan cheese (I used Asiago cheese because that is what I had in the fridge but I think Parmesan cheese would taste better)


Step 1 – Prepare dough. Let rise for about 5 minutes, pop into 425F for about 5 minutes.


Step 2 – Spread garlic cream sauce


Step 3 – Add chicken


Step 4 – Add mushrooms ( I know this is not in a carbonara but I like mushrooms~)


Step 5 – Add bacon (cut up into bite size pieces)


Step 6 – Add parsley


Step 7 – Add cheese, add as much as you like but do not overdo it because it might get salty.

Step 8 – Pop into 425 F oven for about 10 minutes
