I am not a big meat eater but once in a while I prepare meat and chicken recipes for my family since they really do enjoy them. I recently purchased some nitrate free bacon so I decided to use it on pizza. It was my first time adding bacon to it and to be honest, it was quite good, especially with the caramelized onions.

The bacon I used was Canadian bacon, which was nitrate free. I am sure you can find other varieties which don’t have unwanted chemicals. I bought mine at Costco but I have been told that not all Costco chains carry the same items so I am not sure if yours will.

For the pizza crust you can use your preferred pizza crust. If you want to make your own crust you can use this homemade whole wheat pizza crust recipe. You can buy store bought, like I did, or just use what ever you like.

I also use pizza stones for baking my pizzas. Ever since I bought mine I have never turned back. I love how my pizza stones make the pizza dough nice and crunchy and not soggy. They are heavy but so good for baking the pizzas!

On another note, I have just gotten done with the manuscript of my cookbook. It will be coming out September 2015. I am super excited for you guys to get your hands on it. I have worked really hard so I hope you like it. If you want to get a sneak peek of some of the recipes you can go here.

Whole wheat Caramelized onion bacon pizza

Miryam's original recipe

Yield: 8 servings

Total Time: 20 minutes


  • 1 whole wheat pizza dough, store bought or homemade
  • 2 large onions
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 1 lb low-fat mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 6 oz bacon, diced


Preheat your oven to 425F. If you have a convection oven use 400F.

On a cast iron skillet, or any other skillet of your choice, over medium to high heat place the onions and olive oil and cook stirring occasionally until the onions are caramelized. This will take about 5-7 minutes.

On a flat surface, like your kitchen counter, place some whole wheat flour to prevent the dough from sticking. Roll out your pizza dough with a rolling pin until nice and thin.  Place the pizza dough onto the pizza stone, or any other baking pan you are using to bake the pizza in, making sure you reach the edges.

Place the cheese over the pizza dough followed by the caramelized onions and diced bacon.

Bake the pizza in the preheated oven for 18-22 minutes. Serve immediately.

  1. Though not a huge meat eater either, I wouldn’t turn down some quality bacon once in a while. This pizza looks fantastic with the caramelized onions and bacon.
    p.s I usually order grains directly from the farm, then I grind them myself.

  2. Congrats on the book progress. Loving this pizza crust, we need to sneak in healthy where we can.

  3. Looks awesome! One question though, Would you say the serving size is about one small slice of pizza? Awesome that your son likes it, I wouldn’t try anything as a kid! I will try just about anything now though! :)

  4. I’ll be making my pizza sans bacon, but the caramelized onions are enough to win me over!! And SO exciting about your cookbook! I am a bit matcha obsessed right now and can’t wait to get my hands on it.

  5. Myriam , do you cook the bacon before placing it on the pizza dough?
