1. Preheat oven to 450 . Cut Brussels sprouts in half, and cut into shreds.

2. Roll dough into a 12-inch circle on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray.

Brush dough with 1 Tbsp oil. Sprinkle with 11 2 cups cheese, leaving a 1 2-inch border.

3. Grate zest from lemon to equal 2 tsp. Cut lemon in half; squeeze juice from lemon into a large bowl to equal 1 Tbsp. Add lemon zest, Brussels sprouts, bacon, next 2 ingredients, and remaining 1 Tbsp oil; toss well. Sprinkle Brussels sprouts mixture over pizza. Top with remaining 1 2 cup cheese.

From my Kitchen:

To assemble this pizza even faster, buy precooked bacon. Shred the Brussels sprouts ahead, and store them in the refrigerator in a zip-top plastic bag.
