A rice crust? Weird, is it crunchy or slightly soft like a crust?


You would think that growing up in a country that eats rice at least 3 times a day, I wouldn’t have any problem coming up with a dish that includes this staple. For the June Royal Foodie Joust hosted by The Leftover Queen/Foodie Blogroll Forum , the ingredients include: rice, tomato and bacon. Those three alone conjures images of paella, rice bowl, fried rice….well, you get the picture. So while I was devouring a bowl of fried rice topped with sliced fresh tomatoes for my lunch, my husband declared he wants pizza for dinner. Right. I wanted to make something with rice so I can use the three ingredients. And he wants pizza. Hey, wait a minute. So why can’t I make rice pizza? He wants pizza? He’ll get pizza. Here is my TOMATO AND TURKEY BACON PIZZA WITH RICE CRUST. It is just your plain pizza made with rice crust and topped with fresh tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, bell pepper and shredded turkey bacon. I ran out of basil leaves but it would have been perfect if I had some to add to the topping.
