Updated Oct 29, 2010

Ingredients

  • 8 slices thick-sliced bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 package (3-oz size) cream cheese, cut into pieces
  • 3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 can (11 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Thin Crust Pizza Crust
  • 2 small zucchini (8 oz), cut into julienne pieces (1 1/2x1/4x1/4 inch)
  • 1 small yellow summer squash (4 oz), cut into julienne pieces (1 1/2x1/4x1/4 inch)
  • 2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 cup halved grape tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (2 oz)

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F. In skillet, cook bacon over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until crisp. Remove bacon; drain on paper towels. Reserve 3 tablespoons bacon drippings in small bowl; set aside. Discard remaining drippings; wipe skillet clean and set aside.
  • 2
    In 1-quart saucepan, mix 2 tablespoons of reserved drippings, the whipping cream, butter and cream cheese. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring frequently with wire whisk, until melted and blended. Stir in Parmesan cheese and 1 teaspoon of the garlic powder until well blended. Keep warm over low heat.
  • 3
    Spray 11x7-inch (2-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray. Unroll dough in baking dish; press in bottom and up sides of dish. Bake 5 minutes. Meanwhile, in reserved skillet, add remaining 1 tablespoon bacon drippings, the zucchini, yellow squash, mushrooms, pepper and remaining 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder; toss to coat with drippings. Cook and stir over medium-high heat 3 to 5 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Stir in bacon.
