You can use a Boboli® crust, or make a yeast crust and use half of it for this easy and delicious recipe for Bacon Pizza. For less fat and sodium, you could use 1 cup chopped Canadian bacon instead of cooked strip bacon, or add some pepperoni. True bacon lovers may want to use both.
The bacon has to be cooked to a crisp consistency for this recipe, otherwise, it will become too soft in the sour cream sauce and cheese. You can certainly add more bacon if you'd like.
Pre-bake your pizza crust before you add the toppings to avoid a soggy pizza crust. If you make your own dough, or if you buy some from your local pizza place or use pizza dough from a tube, roll it out and pre-bake it. Your pizzas will be much better.
There is no need to use a pizza stone. A pizza stone has to heat up for a long time in the oven before it is hot enough to use. Pizzas get crisp and crusty baked on a thin metal cookie sheet.
You can use other cheeses in this easy recipe. Havarti, Swiss, Gruyere, Monterey Jack, or Pepper Jack for a bit of spice would all be wonderful. In fact, you might want to double this recipe and make two pizzas. They'll go fast.
- 1/2 yeast crust recipe or 1 Boboli® crust
- 1 tablespoon oil
- 2 onions (chopped)
- 3 cloves garlic (minced)
- 1/4 teaspoon paprika
- 1 tablespoon flour
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 1/3 cup sour cream
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
- 1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram leaves
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 1/2 to 1 pound bacon (cooked crisp, drained on paper towels and crumbled)
- 1-1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella or Muenster cheese
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Gather the ingredients.
Heat oven to 425 F. Make and prebake yeast crust if using. Prebake the crust for about 5 to 7 minutes even if you buy one from a pizza place. No need to prebake Boboli® crust.
Heat oil in a large skillet and saute onions and garlic until tender, about 6-7 minutes.
Add paprika and flour and cook and stir for 3 minutes. Add sour cream, thyme, and marjoram leaves and cook until thickened, about 1-2 minutes longer. Stir in mustard.
Spread this sauce over the prebaked crust and top with bacon and cheeses.
Bake at 425 F for 9-15 minutes until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted. Cut into squares or wedges and serve.
