Carbonara Pizza Recipe

This recipe was created by About.com guide, Linda Larsen, and is a cool variation on an old classic. A dollop of creamy white sauce and some bacon and cheese is placed on top of the pizza crust and baked until bubbly, brown and positively yummy.

Ingredients

8 slices bacon

2 tablespoons butter

1 onion, chopped

1 cup bottled Alfredo sauce

1 egg yolk

1 cup shredded Muenster cheese

3. Add Alfredo sauce and egg yolk to onion mixture; cook and stir until thickened. Remove from heat and add Muenster and Mozzarella cheeses; stir until melted.

4. Spoon sauce over pizza crust, spreading evenly. Top with bacon and Parmesan cheese.

5. Bake for 9-14 minutes until crust is crisp and cheese is bubbly and beginning to brown. Cut into wedges to serve.
