Bacon Brie and Barbecue Pizza

That’s what happens when the oppressive heat has sucked what little will you should have to put on pants to go to the store for a handful of things that would make dinner look less… scavenge-y.

But it’s seventh-circle-of-hell hot. And you’re the genius who bought the black car with the black leather interior in Houston.

So no will.

And no pants.

Just “garbage pizza,” as Jason refers to it. Although I object to the name – I dare him to find garbage that tastes this good.

Bacon Brie and Barbecue Pizza

Barbecue sauce, brie, and bacon - these random leftovers come together for a fantastic pizza.


  • 1 lb pizza dough
  • 3 slices of bacon, cooked to a crisp
  • The last bit of barbecue sauce you can shake out of the bottle
  • ~1/3 of a forgotten 8oz wheel of brie
  • 4 borderline-sketchy green onions, sliced (dark green parts set aside)
  • Olive oil, flour, and cornmeal as needed to cook your pizza like this


  1. Preheat your oven to 550.
  2. Stretch your pizza dough into a large round on a lightly floured and cornmealed surface (you can read more about that here).
  3. Brush the edges of the dough with olive oil.
  4. Top with barbecue sauce, white and light green onions, small chunks of brie, and crumble the bacon over top.
  5. Switch your oven to broil and transfer the pizza to the oven to cook (on a pan or stone) until the crust is browned and the toppings are bubbly and starting to brown.
  6. Remove from the oven, top with the dark green onions, and serve.


Yields: 1 large or 3 individual pizzas

  • Soooo in love with this! And we made a heat-induced “garbage” pizza this week as well… bacon, chiles, and smoked mozzarella!

  • I can taste these right now! Mmmmm. Swell job.

  • bacon and brie and pizza, oh my! I am now so happy that I have brie left over from our BBQ this weekend:) I can’t imagine what this smells like when baking but I’m sure I’m going to want to waft in it all day! haha, thanks for posting:)

  • Never thought of using brie on a pizza, but it sounds delicious!

  • Dominique

    Officially drooling! How do you not gain a thousand pounds by eating all this deliciousness????

  • Brie on a savory pizza?! I love it!

  • One word: Awesome 🙂
    What a cute post & great recipe idea! Thanks!

  • Brie on pizza sounds amazing! I’m hoping the weather cools down soon.

  • I made this for dinner but with goat cheese in place of the Brie – it was SO good…a great combination! Thanks for the inspiration!

  • This is exactly what I do but when it is winter here. There is no way I’m going outside if it is 10 degrees outside. What a great combo!

  • LOVE this topping combo! Lots of my favorite things!

  • Carol

    I tried this and it was fabulous! Thanks for the this recipe.

  • Garbage pizza? If only all garbage looked so lovely!

    How did the delicateness of the brie stand up to the BBQ sauce? They’re just two ingredients I wouldn’t have imagined putting together. And now I am oh so curious!

  • This is possibly my favorite recipe ever. This is sooooo my life. I feel like my green onions are ALWAYS sketchy, even when I use them quickly. Hoping you all get some reprieve from the heat soon, but at the same time, pants are overrated.
