Homemade Pepperoni Bacon Pizza with Store Bought Dough
*olive oil for the pan and the pizza dough
*pizza sauce either from a jar or homemade; I used some already made
*favorite pizza toppings; I used pepperoni and 3 slices of bacon cooked and crumbled into pieces
*1 1/2 cups or more of Shredded cheese; I used a blend of cheddar and mozzarella
I find that letting the dough set out for 30 minutes before using it makes it easier to work with.
Preheat oven to 425°.
If using a pizza stone, preheat the stone then add some corneal before adding the dough. I find this keeps the dough from sticking.
If using a pizza pan or sheet pan, brush with olive oil.
Roll out the dough and using your finger tips, gently stretch out the dough to fit the pan. It’s ok if it isn’t perfectly round or square. Brush the dough with a little olive oil.
Prebake the dough for about 5 minutes.
After the dough is prebaked, spread on some of the pizza sauce then sprinkle on the cheese.
Next, add the toppings.
Bake for about 7 to 8 minutes or until crust is done and cheese is melted.
Cut into slices and serve.
