Ingredients

  • 1/2 C water
  • 1/2 tsp active dry yeast
  • 1/4 tsp granulated sugar
  • 1 1/4 C all purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil if needed
  • 1/3-1/2 C Pizza sauce
  • 1 1/2 C mozzarella
  • 3 Tbsp Parmesan cheese
  • 3-4 slices bacon cooked and chopped
  • 1/2 C ham roughly chopped
  • 1/2 C hot sausage cooked and crumbled
  • 1/4 C pepperoni slices
  • Ground black pepper

Instructions

  • Prepare dough by combining warm water, heated to 115°F, with yeast and sugar. Stir to dissolve and allow to proof.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, add flour and salt. With mixer running on low, slowly add yeast mixture. Increase speed, adding olive oil, if needed or desired. Mix until a ball forms, pulling away from the sides of the bowl. Transfer to a greased bowl. Cover and allow to rise in a warm location until doubled, roughly 1 hour.
  • Meanwhile, cook bacon and sausage. Chop bacon and ham. Crumble sausage.
  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Grease a baking sheet with olive oil. Shape dough to desired size. Spoon pizza sauce over dough. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and 1/2 cup shredded whole milk mozzarella. Add meat toppings. Finally sprinkle with remaining 1 cup mozzarella and ground black pepper.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes or until desired crispness is reached. Serve warm.
