Saturday Night Pizza, with Bacon, Mushrooms, Onion and Cheese
Recipe for one 14" pizza +/-
3 slices of bacon, cut into 1/4" pieces with scissors
Handful of crimini mushrooms, sliced thin
1/2 red onion, sliced thin
Italian parsley, roughly chopped
1 - 2 oz piece of pizza dough
See my December 30th post for my basic dough recipe.
Get the oven hot set at 500* or higher, with a pizza stone on the middle shelf.
In a saute pan with a little olive oil over medium high heat, add the bacon and brown. When done add the mushrooms and onion, cook until done.
Tip: Before doing the next step, make sure all of the ingredients are ready to go, you will have to move fast because the dough will start to cook the minute it hits the stone!
Roll out the pizza dough on a floured surface, then brush with olive oil. Take the hot stone out of the oven and place the pizza on top. Brush with olive oil, then arrange the cheese, mushrooms, bacon and onions, then finely grate some parmesan on top. Cook for about 4-5 minutes... Garnish with parsley and a pinch of chili flakes.
Bon Appetit! Chef Hobbes
