White Pizza with Bacon
I've officially declared pizza as my single favorite food. If it made sense health-wise, I'd eat it at least three times a week. Thick crust, thin crust, homemade, pizza parlor, NY-style, Chicago-style... I just love the endless variations of chewy dough topped with cheese, sauce, veggies and sometimes meat.
I've recently made some modifications to my BFF (in my head) Pioneer Woman's Pizza Dough recipe. I think I'm becoming a homemade pizza expert. I made a batch of dough at least once every ten days.
My latest creation is this White Pizza with Bacon that I wrote for ShopRite's Potluck blog. If you don't like bacon, just leave it out. I promise that the pizza will be just as delicious. This recipe calls for a flavored oil sold exclusively at ShopRite, but you could absolutely flavor your own oil with parsley, thyme and garlic to make this pizza if you don't live near a ShopRite.
This pizza was so good that we ate it twice in one week. Give me this pizza with a salad and a glass of wine and I'm one happy woman. 'Nuff said.
Pizza is also a great option for No Fast Food Fridays. That's right... first there was the Meatless Monday movement and now we have No Fast Food Fridays. I don't mind forgoing takeout when homemade pizza is this easy and tastes just as good.
