Bacon Belting (And Naan Bacon Pizza)

After a night out, I ended up at a bar 2 blocks from home.  I now know I am in the right neighborhood as I am living with like-minded people.  I am sure it wasn't just the beer talking, but the Bacon Dogger sounded fantastic.  (I saw this, of course, AFTER I had ordered.)  The Rammer (..."I don't even know her") and the Slim Jim (..."that's what she said") also are on my list.  I think it's now a little dangerous that I live only 2 blocks away...

Pinterest is a great site that can give you inspiration for a project, recipe, or just about anything you are avoiding work to look at.  Bacon Duck Tape exists!  Not only does it exist, but I use it (::shock::) whenever I can.  I use it in batching up bacon treats for others, when packaging my homemade bacon or any repair around the house.  This week I found inspiration on making a Bacon Belt.  Huh.  I can do I did.  Took me less than 10 minutes...Check out the directions here.  Now I'll really be cool with my bacon t-shirts and bacon belt (...she tells herself).

When friends visit, I'm obligated to make something new and interesting.  However, everything I wanted to make required an ingredient I didn't have, cause low and behold, it was the day before I was going grocery shopping.  So this was thrown together, with ingredients I had on hand.

Non (Naan) Bacon Pizza

1 pkg of Naan Bread
6 slices of Bacon, diced
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup parmesean cheese
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1-2 tsps extra-virgin olive oil

oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until cooked but not crisp. Using a slotted spoon, remove to paper towels to drain.

Place naan on a large cookie sheet.  Brush with olive oil.  Sprinkle onion and garlic powder, basil and oregano on the bread.  Top with Parmesan cheese, then cheddar cheese and then finish with bacon.

Bake for 5-8 minutes or until cheese has melted and desired crispness of bread has been met.
