Clam and Bacon Pizza

  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 18 minutes
  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 6 servings 1x


Clams, bacon and an alfredo sauce top an easy, weeknight pizza.



  • 1 can (13.8 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated artisan pizza crust with whole grain
  • 1/2 lb bacon, cooked and crumbled (reserve 4 tablespoons bacon grease)
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 cans (6.5 oz) clams, drained
  • 8 oz fresh mozzarella
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, torn or sliced


  1. Heat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Grease a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Roll the crust out and press out slightly. Bake in the oven for 8 minutes.
  3. While the crust is baking, cook the bacon. Remove all the grease from the pan except 4 tablespoons. Whisk in the flour and cook for 1 minute. Slowly whisk in the milk and cook until thickened and bubbly, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the cheese. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Remove the pizza from the oven. Top with the alfredo sauce. Add the clams, bacon and mozzarella. Return the pizza to the oven and bake an additional 6-10 minutes, until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is melted. Sprinkle on the fresh basil.
