OK folks, here's the deal. This is pretty good, but not as good as CPK's version, IMHO (and I'm not sure why b/c the concept & ingredients are the same). Having said that, BLT pizza is the ONLY thing I will order when my fiance & I eat there, so I really DO enjoy it. I have a couple of tips for those of you wanting to give this a try. First of all, I understand that it is human nature to 'tweak' a recipe to your liking, but sometimes, it is best left as is. I have to admit that I'm usually quick to make most of the changes suggested by other reviewers, but sometimes, they're just wrong. Stick with the recipe on this one. If you are striving for authenticity, keep in mind that your lettuce / mayo mix. should be ever so lightly dressed. Doubling it (even if you thin w/ H2O or milk) will leave you w/ soggy, sloppy lettuce!!! Suggestions to dbl. the bacon (who doesn't like bacon??!!?!?) & sub. garlic salt for plain table salt are spot on, however. I ended up using the dressing recipe from Mooney's BLT Salad recipe since I enjoy it so much. Just scale to 2 T / 1/4 c. worth mayo & add 1/8 t garlic powder or salt, a pinch of pepper and 1/2 T / 1/2 t milk. My only other sugg. would be to use a VERY good quality pizza crust (why skimp on the main part???). I used a Boboli whole wheat one since CPK serves theirs on honey wheat (closest I could find to that). Overall, this was a good pizza, but when I'm craving the "real" thing, I'll head to the chain. TY for sharing! :-)
