Kitchen Sink Pizza

A friend recently asked me quite possibly THE most important question about my blog. Where is the BACON?!?

They were right, I mean they ARE right. Where is the BACON on this blog! And can I use more exclamation marks… let’s find out!

Despite the lack of bacon here , I really do love bacon! I mean really, who doesn’t love bacon, other than crazy people. I am however am not referring to people who choose to discount it from their diet do to religious beliefs. ( a girl has to be politically correct)

I’ll let you in on a little crazy secret, and I do mean crazy! Years ago, I gave up all forms of pork! Even BACON, I know! Please don’t hate me. It wasn’t even for religion.

I regained my sanity some years later and Bacon was the first pork related food back on my plate. I have never looked back. Even throughout this clean eating fiasco, bacon has stayed!

Let’s face it people, bacon is awesome! It resolves conflicts, creates peace, and saves the world from….. ok maybe I’m stretching it. But I believe it has it place in the food world, and it goes on everything.

You’re soufflé looking a little flat, but bacon on it! Your cookies taste like dirt, put bacon on them!, you’re cleaning out your fridge and making a pizza, and even though you have a million ingredients on said pizza, there is something missing…. Put BACON on it!

Kitchen Sink Pizza-9
I dedicate this kitchen sink pizza (with bacon on it) to my dear friend who pointed out I was neglecting the most important food group of all, BACON!

Kitchen Sink Pizza-8
Seriously, I’m pretty sure my kitchen sink is somewhere on this pizza… let me know if you spot it! And I managed to use 12 exclamation marks! 13…

Kitchen Sink Pizza
Your Favorite Pizza Dough (My sister sent me a great one, I’ll post it soon)

Pizza Sauce or Tomato Puree
¼ Cup of Corn
½ Cup of Arugula
½ Cup of shredded cheese ( I used a mixture of mozzarella and cheddar)
Shredded chicken
2 Tablespoons of pureed tomatoes
Half a zucchini, sliced thinly
3-4 thinly sliced pieces of red onion
2-4 tablespoons of Goat Cheese
3-4 thinly sliced tomato
As Much Bacon as you want

Pre-Heat your oven to 500 degrees (you heard me! 500!)  Place your pizza stone in the oven to get it nice hot. If you don’t have a pizza stone, then lower the oven heat to 450 degrees.

Roll out your pizza dough as thin or thick as you want on a parchment paper.  I like to start with the pizza sauce (or tomato paste), then I like to put 1/2 cup of cheese (you can use more), then I put all my toppings on, including the bacon.  I then like to crumble goat cheese and 1/4 cup more of shredded cheese.

If your using a pizza stone, place your parchment paper with the pizza on top on the back of a cookie sheet, and gently slide the pizza (parchment and all) onto the pizza stone.  Or just leave it on a cookie sheet.

Bake for 10 minutes, or until the top and bottom are brown.  If using a cookie sheet, and the oven is at 450, I’de bake it for 15 – 20 minutes.
