    Instructions

      Pizza Crust

      1. In a medium bowl, add the warm water and yeast. Whisk with a fork for about a minute and then let it sit for about 10 minutes until the mixture starts looking real frothy. Next, add in the sugar, salt, and olive oil. Mix this together for about 2 minutes and then add in your flour. When all the flour is combined, let it rise in an oiled bowl for about 40 minutes or until it has doubled.


      2. When the dough has finished rising, roll the dough out on a floured surface and then place it on a pizza pan with parchment paper (to avoid messy overspills). Then roll the edges of the pizza crust up just enough that it can hold up your toppings. Then, pre-bake this crust for about 10-12 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Let it cool, but don't worry if the crust is still a little doughy as you are going to be putting it back in the oven again!

      Toppings

      1. 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.
      2. Then, spread the pizza sauce onto a pre-baked pizza crust. I used Prego Roasted Garlic Parmesan sauce and it was DELICIOUS! Then, you will sprinkle a thin layer of mozzarella cheese on top of the sauce. Next 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.
      3. Next, you should bake the bacon pizza at 350 degrees fahrenheit for 20 minutes. Brush the edges of the pizza with melted butter halfway through the cooking time and sprinkle with parmesan cheese then return it back to the oven for the final 10 minutes.
