Recipe by: Frankie


1/4 ounce active yeast
1 1/3 cups warm water
4 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp honey
1/2 tsp plus 1/8 tsp salt
1 TBSP and 1 tsp vegetable oil
2 pieces cooked bacon, crumbled
1/2 lb ground italian sausage
8 ounces tomato sauce
8 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded
3 ounces mozzarella cheese, cut in strips
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp basil
1 TBSP oregano


1. In a standing mixer combine the yeast, water, honey and 1 TBSP of the oil and let sit for 5 minutes.

2. Add flour and 1/2 tsp of the salt and mix with a dough hook until dough pulls away from the sides, add small amounts of flour and/or water if necessary.

3. In a large bowl add the 1 tsp of oil. Form dough into a ball and place in the bowl with the oil and flip dough around to coat. Let rise about 30 minutes.

4. Heat the sausage in a pan until cooked through breaking it up into small pieces as you go.

5. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Pull out a pizza pan about 16 inches in diameter.

6. In a bowl combine the tomato sauce, basil, oregano, garlic and the 1/8 tsp salt.

7. Turn dough onto a lightly floured counter top and form into a circle working from the middle and pressing with your fingers.

8. Make the dough circle diameter about 20 inches (4 inches larger than the diameter of your pizza pan). Place the dough on the pizza pan so it overlaps the edges of the pan.

9. Place the cheese strips on the dough around the edge of the pan and then sprinkle the crumbled bacon on top of the cheese strips.

10. Roll the overlapping edge of the dough over the cheese and bacon and press with your fingers to seal.

11. Place 4 ounces of the sauce on the pizza dough and spread evenly covering the entire pizza, crust and all.

12. Top the center of the pizza with the shredded mozzarella and then top with the sausage.

13. Place in the oven and bake for about 14 minutes or until crust is a golden brown.

14. Serve pizza with the remaining sauce to dip your crusts in.
