6 Unique Types of Canadian Bacon Pizza

Canadian bacon pizza is a classic pizza made especially from Canadian bacon. What makes Canadian bacon different from American bacon is that it is thicker, streaky with smoked strips of bacon that are so common in the market. On the other hand, American bacon comes from the fatty belly of pigs while Canadian bacon is cut from their loins.

In preparing Canadian bacon, it is usually done in a basic brine style, but sometimes it could be smoked also. The loins are rolled in grounded yellow peas or sometimes cornmeal and sliced. Canadian bacon usually has a sweet flavor and a tender juicy texture. It can make a good addition to a lot of recipes. It could be served with eggs, folded into an omelet, served with pancakes, or it could be chopped for pizza toppings to make a delicious Canadian bacon pizza.


Combined with mushrooms, bell pepper and some mozzarella cheese. Canadian bacon makes a classic pizza topping. There are several recipes on how to make Canadian bacon pizza, each with a different nutritional value and special ingredients.


You can spice up your recipe however you want, but the customary toppings you’ll find in a Canadian bacon pizza recipe are tomato pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, bacon, pepperoni, and mushrooms.
