Pan Pizza with Bacon, Spinach and Tomato

Yield: One 13 x 18 inch "half" sheet pan pizza

Pan Pizza with Bacon, Spinach and Tomato

INGREDIENTS:

    CRUST
  • 4 cups Pamela's Pizza Crust Mix (this will be double the recipe for pizza crust on the Pizza Crust Mix)
  • 4-1/2 tsp active dry yeast (2 yeast packets)
  • 2-1/4 cup warm water
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • TOPPINGS
  • 1 lb. bacon-cut in 1/2" pieces and cooked
  • 8 oz. sharp cheddar
  • 6 oz. fontina or jack cheese
  • 6 oz. provolone cheese
  • 8 Roma tomatoes-cut in slices
  • 1 small bunch fresh spinach
  • 1 bunch green onions
  • red pizza sauce and/or pesto sauce (about 2 cups total)
  • cornmeal (optional)

DIRECTIONS:

Make pizza dough following instructions on bag for pizza crust. Instead of letting the dough rise in the bowl of the mixer, prep one "half" sheet pan by spraying with non-stick spray and lay in a piece of parchment cut to fit pan. Spray the parchment and then sprinkle with cornmeal (optional). Spread dough into pan, cover with plastic, and let rise in warm, draft-free spot until almost doubled.

Pre-heat oven to 475° and place rack in top third of oven. Bake the crust for about 7 to 10 minutes, until starting to brown at corners and on the bottom.

Remove from oven and add toppings in the following order: pesto or red pizza sauce, layer of spinach leaves (remove stems), white cheese, sliced tomatoes, bacon, green onions and cheddar. Reduce temperature to 450° and bake for 8 to 10 more minutes until toppings are hot and bubbling. Let cool on rack for a few minutes before cutting into small pieces, cutting between the tomatoes so each piece gets a slice.

Chef's Note: I usually make this pizza half with pesto sauce and half with red sauce so everyone has a choice. You can also prepare this pan pizza with any of your own favorite toppings.
