    plain or peppered bacon, finely chopped
  • 1/2  cup 
    chopped green sweet pepper
  • 1/4  cup 
    sliced green onion (2)
  • 1  12  inch 
    prebaked pizza crust
  • 1  8  ounce tub 
    cream cheese spread*
  • 2   
    eggs
  • 1   cup 
    cubed cooked ham
  • 1   cup 
    shredded cheddar cheese (4 ounces)
Directions
1.
In a 10-inch skillet cook bacon over medium-low heat until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, remove bacon from skillet and drain on paper towels. Drain skillet, reserving about 1 tablespoon drippings in skillet. Add sweet pepper and green onion to reserved drippings; cook until tender. Drain and set aside.
2.
Preheat oven to 400F. Place pizza crust on a large baking sheet; set aside. In a small bowl beat cream cheese spread with an electric mixer just until smooth. Add eggs, one at a time, beating until combined. Spread cream cheese mixture over pizza crust. Sprinkle with bacon, sweet pepper, and green onion. Top with ham.
3.
Bake, uncovered, in the preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until cream cheese layer is set. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese. Bake for 3 to 4 minutes more or until cheese melts. To serve, use a pizza cutter to cut into wedges. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
Note
  • * If desired, use an herb-flavored cream cheese spread.
Tip
  • For quicker preparation, used cooked bacon pieces and cook sweet pepper and green onion in 1 tablespoon olive oil.
Variation

Substitute 1 cup coarsely chopped cooked shrimp, or two 4-ounce cans small shrimp, drained, for the ham. Substitute shredded Mexican-blend cheese for the cheddar cheese. (Or if desired, substitute one 6-ounce can crab meat, drained, flaked, and cartilage removed, for the shrimp.)
Variation
