1 pizza (8 slices)


  • 3 slices bacon, chopped

  • 1 ¼ cup 1/8-inch slices Yukon gold or red potatoes

  • cup 1/8-inch slices onion

  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 1 12 inch thin pizza crust

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

  • 1 lemon

  • 3 tablespoon olive oil

  • ¼ teaspoon Dijon-style mustard

  • 1 5 ounce pkg. baby arugula

  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F; reduce oven temperature to 425°F. In a 10-inch skillet cook bacon over medium heat just until it begins to brown. Drain on paper towels, reserving 1 tsp. drippings in skillet.

  2. Add potatoes and onion to reserved drippings; sprinkle with rosemary, 1/4 tsp. of the salt, and 1/4 tsp. of the pepper. Cook over medium-high heat 5 to 6 minutes or until potatoes are light brown and onion is tender, turning occasionally.

  3. Place pizza crust on a baking sheet;* brush with the 1 tsp. oil. Top with potato mixture and bacon. Bake 10 minutes or until edge of crust is brown.

  4. Meanwhile, for salad, remove 1 tsp. zest and squeeze 1 Tbsp. juice from lemon. In a medium bowl whisk together lemon zest and juice, 3 Tbsp. oil, mustard, and remaining 1/4 tsp. salt and pepper. Add arugula; toss to coat. Pile salad on top of pizza and sprinkle with cheese.
