According to Junior and Junior Too, I’ve finally mastered the pizza (yeast tends to stump me). However, Junior Too advised me to stick to pizzas like this one and my taco pizza and leave traditional pepperoni and supreme pizzas to pizza joints, Freschetta, and Digiorno. Sniff…some habits are just hard to break.

PIZZA DOUGH (or you can buy pre-made):

1 cup warm water

1-1/2 tsp yeast

2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp sea salt

3 tbsp olive oil + 2 tsp olive oil (divided)


1 cup mozzarella cheese

1/2 cup parmesan-romano-asiago cheese blend

1 cup chopped grape tomatoes

5 slices turkey bacon, fried to slightly crisp and chopped

1 green onion, sliced thin

6 eggs

1 tsp minced fresh parsley

Optional: tabasco or other hot sauce

1) PIZZA DOUGH: Add warm water and yeast to small bowl, stir gently, and let sit 10 minutes

2) To large bowl, add flour, salt, and 3 tbsp olive oil; stir to combine; pour in water-yeast mixture and stir well to combine; turn dough into a lightly oiled bowl, cover, and let rise 1 hour

3) Preheat oven to 475 degrees

4) Lightly oil large pizza pan with 1 tsp olive oil; on floured surface, roll out dough to fit pan; transfer dough to pan; brush surface of dough with remaining 1 tsp olive oil

5) Sprinkle mozzarella and parmesan-romano-asiago cheese over dough, followed by tomatoes, bacon, and green onion

6) Crack 6 eggs on pizza and sprinkle with fresh parsley; bake in oven 10-12 minutes and serve

Servings: 4 (but don’t be too hungry)
