  6. Bake for about 5 minutes. Then add crumbled bacon.

Notes

If you prefer a thin crust pizza just roll the dough out onto a large sheet pan. Keep the amount of toppings the same, though, just spread them across the thin crust so that the pizza doesn't get soggy.

Don’t want to deal with frying bacon? Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, lay bacon in a single layer, and bake for about 20 to 25 minutes at 400 degrees. It's the easiest way to make perfectly crispy bacon with minimal effort.

Shred your own cheese for a really wonderful melt. Pre-shredded cheeses are coated with cellulose to keep them from clumping together, but that also means it doesn’t melt as well. Pre-shredded will work in a pinch for this pizza, but freshly shredded is best and it's usually cheaper to buy a block of cheese!
