Bacon and Pepperoni Pizza

posted in: Recipes 0

There are so many combinations for pizza toppings out there, it can be overwhelming. This is a classic for my family (we just had one last night - it would have been grilled too had we not run out of propane), we love the crunch you get from the bacon and the spice from the pepperoni. I hope you enjoy this recipe and if you have any questions, just let me know!

Ingredients

Pizza Dough

  • 5 T Dry Active Yeast About 2 Packets
  • 1 ¼ Cups Water Heated to 115 degrees
  • 3 ½ Cups Flour
  • 2 ½ TB Olive Oil
  • 1 Tsp Olive oil

Sauce & Toppings

  • 2 tsp Vegetable oil
  • 14 oz Pizza Sauce
  • 2 Oz Diced pepperoni
  • 3 Oz Pepperoni slices
  • 16 oz Mozzarella cheese
  • 12 slices Bacon cooked

Instructions

  • Combine yeast and water to a bowl. Wait 5 – 7 minutes to proof (the mixture should foam, if it doesn’t after 5 minutes, sprinkle in ½ tsp of sugar to encourage it.)
  • Add the rest of the dough ingredients to the bowl (half at a time) and mix with a wooden spoon until the dough starts to come together.
  • Place the dough onto your work surface and knead for six to seven minutes, being very thorough and firm. Knead until the dough is smooth and elastic (but not sticky.)
  • Place dough in a bowl and cover with a teaspoon of olive oil. Turn the ball so it gets coated in the oil completely.
  • Place bowl in a warm area to let proof for 1 hour to 1 1/2 hours (it will double in size.) I always proof in my oven at 95 degrees.
  • Remove dough from the bowl onto your unfloured work surface and knead for 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Spread into the shape of a pizza with your hands. You don't want to add any more flour at this point because it will give your pizza a powdery residue.
  • As I mentioned above, the key to a crisp bottom is a piece of aluminum foil. Lay a smooth section of foil to the bottom of your pan, and brush on a thin layer of oil.
  • Transfer your pizza dough to the pan, placing onto of the foil.
  • Bake the dough at 450 degrees for 5 – 7 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and add sauce and toppings.
  • Bake again for 12 to 15 minutes at 450 degrees.
  • Remove from oven and cut. I hope you enjoy as much as I do!

Notes

If you want to save some time, you can always grab prepared dough at your grocery store or pizza store (if they offer).
