1 head garlic, roasted and peeled
1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
1/4 cup olive oil
4 slices thick smoked bacon, cut in pieces
1 recipe Classic Pizza Dough (click here for recipe)
1 cup Kasseri cheese, shredded
1/4 cup parmesan cheese, shredded
1/2 white onion, thinly sliced
1 cup arugula


  1. Place garlic, red pepper and oil in the Single Serve Cup. Press the Single Serve button and hold until smooth. Remove the blades from the cup after blending. In a small sauté pan over medium heat, cook the bacon for 2 to 3 minutes just to render fat. Do not brown; drain on paper towels.
  2. Punch pizza dough down and, on a lightly floured work surface, roll or press the dough to about 1/2-inch thickness. Transfer to a pizza pan scattered with cornmeal. Spread the roasted garlic sauce over the dough, leaving a small border around the edge. Scatter evenly with the cheeses, onion and bacon.
  3. Bake pizza until bubbly, cheese is melted and crust is golden, about 8 to 12 minutes. Top with arugula, slice and serve.
  4. Go ahead, embrace your inner meal prepper. We hear you, making smoothies the night before is a huge time saver. But, heads up, never store your smoothies with the blade assembly attached—active ingredients in some foods may lead to pressure buildup and possible injury. Store them with Sip & Seal Lids instead.
