This recipe was created because I had a package of Canadian bacon and some rather tasteless Swiss cheese in the fridge that needed to be used up. Oh, and an insatiable appetite for pizza! When melted, the Swiss is firm and surprisingly, this combination gives you the texture of “real” pizza in your mouth. This is an original Minnesota Farm Woman copyrighted recipe. You may share it with credit, but do not steal and claim as your own, or you will have to clean the chicken coop for a month!

1 6 oz. package thin sliced Canadian bacon
5-6 slices Swiss cheese
1 tsp. olive oil
10 or more slices turkey pepperoni
2 tbs. chopped green olives
1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning
salt, pepper, red pepper flakes to taste
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Optional toppings will add carbs, but you may add 1 tbs. pizza sauce, 1 tbs. chopped green pepper, onion, and/or mushrooms. You could change it up and add pesto, grilled chicken, and artichoke hearts, too!

In a non-stick skillet saute the Canadian bacon in olive oil until browned. (I used an orGreenic pan for this recipe, and nothing ever sticks.) Remove, cool, and wipe pan. Line pan with the cooled bacon, top with Swiss cheese. Broil on low until golden brown, cool. This should form a fairly solid disc. Lift, wipe pan, and flip over. Top with seasonings, pepperoni, and chopped olives, cover with mozzarella. Broil on low until golden brown.
Makes 4 generous slices. Each slice yields 3 carbs, depending on brands used and with no optional ingredients added.
