Christmas bacon and sprout pizza

This festive pizza is as christmassy as it comes! Top yours with bacon, sprouts, mozzarella and onion marmalade.

Serves 2

Prep time 30 mins


  • 125g mozzarella ball
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 90g british dry cured smoked streaky bacon
  • 40g onion marmalade
  • 21g wholegrain mustard
  • 2 pizza bases (or 1 large pizza base)
  • 64g tomato paste
  • 30ml mayonnaise
  • 100g Brussels sprouts


  • Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 390°F/ Gas 6
  • Put a large baking tray (or two) in the oven to heat up (this will stop the pizza bottoms from going soggy!)
  • Add the tomato paste and dried oregano to a bowl with a generous pinch of saltpepper and sugar. Add 5 tbsp cold water and give everything a good mix up – this is your tomato sauce
  • Trim the ends from the Brussels sprouts, then finely slice
  • Chop the smoked bacon into bite-sized pieces
  • Drain and pat the mozzarella dry with kitchen paper (squeeze as much liquid out as you can!). Tear the drained mozzarella into rough, bite-sized pieces
  • Add the pizza bases to a baking tray (or two)
  • Divide the tomato sauce between the pizza bases and spread it evenly all over them with the back of a spoon
  • Top with the torn mozzarella and dot the onion marmalade all over. Top with the sliced Brussels sprouts and chopped bacon and season with a pinch of pepper
  • Put the tray in the oven for 13-15 min or until the cheese has melted and the bases are crisp – these are your Christmas bacon & sprout pizzas
  • Meanwhile, combine the wholegrain mustard and mayonnaise in a bowl – this is your mustard mayo. Serve with the pizza, for dipping.
