Preparing Bacon Pizza
Turn your oven on to 450-500 degrees or more and preheat for at least 30 minutes.
Spread out the dough in a rough circle, on a floured board or surface.
If you are using a baking pan, then create the pizza in that.
Open the sauce container, and start to spread the Tomato Sauce. Spread the Tomato Sauce around the whole base, taking care to leave a gap at edges.
Add the ingredients in size order, from large to small.
Cheese gets added last.

I find this pizza great tasting on its own, or why not enjoy it with a simple side dish?
Put the Bacon pizza on the middle shelf of the oven and set a timer for 10 minutes.
After approximately 10 minutes, open oven door and check on pizza.
The pizza should be done within roughly 15 minutes. Always cook to personal tastes.
Often used as a flavouring or side dish, Bacon is a type of salt-cured pork. Bacon is created through a curing process, where the meat is soaked in a solution of salt, nitrates and sometimes sugar. Afterwards, the Bacon is typically smoked.
Bacon’s history goes back thousands of years to China in 1500 BC. Pigs were also being raised in Europe by 1500 BC, possibly for the same purpose. In Middle English the word Bacon meant all pork in general.
When making Bacon Pizza, it’s always handy to have the right pizza making tools. Here’s the basic pizza tools that I always suggest…
Pizza making is all about precision. Having a set of both dry and wet measuring cups on hand is vital to accurately measure all your ingredients.
Very similar to a pizza stone, a pizza steel is made of, you guessed it, steel. It’s a great modern method to heat pizza well in a normal oven.
A quality rubber spatula really helps when it comes to scraping bowls and plates, etc.
Ham is one of the oldest meats used by humans, and can be found in cuisines in almost every country in the world. Ham is pork from a leg cut that has been preserved by dry or wet curing, with or without smoking.
Smoked hams will lose about 25 per cent of their weight during the smoking process. Weird fact: Dwight Kalb, an artist from Chicago, once made a statue of Madonna using 180 pounds of ham.
What to do with leftovers?
Leftovers after the meal? Here are some tips.
There are many ways to reheat pizza. We cover seven of them in this article.
Can you freeze pizza?
You can freeze pizza for up to three months, however I’d suggest consuming it within the first few weeks, ideally.
Chill in the fridge
You can keep pizza in plastic wrap or a container for up to 3 days in the fridge.
