BLT pizza

We really liked this. The basil flavor was wonderful. I made the dough homemade in the breadmaker but you can also do this with a premade crust.

BLT Pizza

SERVES 6 , 1 pizza

1 (16 ounce) pizza crust or your favorite homemade pizza crusts
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 teaspoons dried basil
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon onion powder
12 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled (Can also use turkey bacon)
3/4 cup cheddar cheese, shredded (Can also use Monterey Jack instead )
3/4 cup mozzerella, shredded
1 1/2 cups lettuce, shredded
