Last night, Todd was out of town working, and I was craving pizza. After a trip to the post office, I stopped at Publix to get some of the goodies found in the photo below, and came home to make my favorite pizza – Bacon, Onion and Green Peppers!
Todd doesn’t like onions or green peppers so I don’t get to enjoy my favorite very often, unless we are making pizzas at home like this because then we can do half and half pizza.
This pizza cost about $10 to make, comes together very quickly and is sooooo delicious, plus, there are endless possibilities!
Serves: 3 – 4 or 8 Slices
Time: 25 Minutes
– 11 oz Refrigerated Pizza Dough – I used Pillsbury’s Thin Crust Pizza Dough
– 12 oz of Pizza/Pasta Sauce – I used half a jar of Ragu’s Chunky Garden Combo
– 2 – 3 Cups of Shredded Mozzarella Cheese – I used Publix 2% Milk Shredded Low-Moisture Part-Skim Shredded Mozzarella
– 1/2 to 3/4 Cup of Bacon Crumbs – I used Homel’s Real Crumbled Bacon Original Flavor
– 1/2 Cup Chopped Green Peppers
– 1/4 Cup Chopped Onions
You’ll Also Need:
– Aluminum Foil for Lining Pan
– Large Cookie Pan
– Knife for Cutting
– Optional, Measuring Cup
Sauce: You can easily change up the flavor a little by using different flavor sauce, such as a Mushroom one
Cheese: 2 cups is one bag. If you like a lot of cheese, you may want to pick up two bags while you are out at the store.
Bacon: You could cook bacon and crumble, but I cheated with the precooked crumbled bag found in the aisle with the salad dressings.
Onions & Peppers: I keep bags of chopped onions and peppers found in the frozen vegetables aisle as they are perfect for adding to pizzas, among others, and since I don’t use them a whole lot, it is better than fresh ones going bad.
Step 1: Pre-Heat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Add foil to pan, and spray with Pam.
Step 2: Unroll and press pizza dough as desired.
Step 3: Bake for 8 minutes.
Step 4: Spread sauce, keeping in mind that you need a small crust around the pizza to grab the slices later.
Step 5: Sprinkle cheese.
Step 6: Add toppings – I did bacon first, then green peppers and then onions.
Step 7: Bake for 8 more minutes.
Cut. I cut mine four slices wide, by two slices.

This looks soooo yummy! I would love to try it. I like when pizzas are cut in squares or rectangles too.
Oh it was yummy! And it was fun creating it. Never really thought about it, but I like the shape of this one too!

I'm italian and i love both pizza and onions! i love pizza without tomato, onions and oil 😉
Like a Margherita pizza? There is a local pizza place I love to go to. I usually take advantage of their lunch special with me two slices of this pizza, and a soda.

Alexandra, that's the only nice thing about the husband working out of town–we get to eat the stuff they don't like! 😀 But mine would like this pizza!
Hehe! I am a little jealous.
