Brussels sprouts and pancetta are a great combination. This duo is everywhere in the culinary world, with good reason… It’s delicious on pasta, crostini, ravioli filling, pizza and even alone as a side.
With pizza, this is a fairly common topping now, which makes me very happy. I loooove it. This pizza is light and fresh tasting with little blasts of salty flavor from the pancetta and cheese. The Brussels sprouts get a slight char along the edges, while still retaining their tenderness. I can eat one of these pizzas by myself, it’s that good and doesn’t weigh you down.
I also like making this when I’m making multiple pies. Having 3-5 different pizzas gives a nice selection for a small group. Brussels sprouts and pancetta is always a crowd pleaser!
