Easy Bacon Pizza
This is the perfect pizza for bacon lovers! Not only that, this bacon pizza is extremely EASY to make. While the toppings are endless when it comes to pizzas, this one just might be my favorite. The crust sprinkled with parmesan cheese to add just enough flavor for a mouth-watering combination!

Now back to the recipe! I will make one note early on that the pizza crust I used came from Epicurious. Here is the link to the recipe I used. My opinion is that everything is better homemade, and this recipe is perfect for every pizza you ever make. One thing I did to this recipe was that I prebake the crust for 10 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Bacon Pizza Recipe
1 large pre-baked pizza crust
1 16oz package of bacon
1/2 cup pizza sauce
3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1/4 cup melted butter
The first thing you will do is bake the bacon. Yeah, you read that right…BAKE it. What I do is line 2 cookie sheets with aluminum foil and place the bacon on the sheets. Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 16-18 minutes or until the bacon is to your crispy enough. Then cut into fairly large sections. I like to know I’m eating bacon so I don’t want it in bits.
Then, spread the pizza sauce onto a pre-baked pizza crust.
For this bacon pizza, you can use whatever pizza sauce you want, but I used Prego Roasted Garlic Parmesan sauce and it was DELICIOUS! This particular sauce really complimented the parmesan that was sprinkled on the crust later on in the recipe.
Once you have spread the pizza sauce evenly over the pie crust, you will sprinkle a thin layer of mozzarella cheese on top of the sauce. Then you will add the bacon on top of the cheese.
The bacon pizza isn’t done yet! Add another layer of cheese and bacon. Seriously, you cannot have too much bacon on a bacon pizza. If you can’t tell, I am not a fan of the pizza’s where there are barely enough toppings on them!
Next, you should bake the bacon pizza at 350 degrees fahrenheit for 20 minutes. Brush the edges of the pizza halfway through the cooking time with melted butter and sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Then return it back to the oven for the final 10 minutes.
