What Tricks Make This a Fast Dinner?

Either buy premade, frozen dough from the grocery store or make your own, with yeast made specifically for pizzas; there is no need to let the dough rise. Pizza yeast is specially designed to not have the spring back of other yeasts, making it easier to make pizza dough quickly.

Use a mixer with a dough hook or a bread machine to make the dough in 10 minutes.

This homemade bacon is perfect for this pizza.

Have a few pieces of frozen bacon in the freezer. When you make bacon, always cook extra and freeze it for later use. If you have an air fryer, you can also make it in under 10 minutes.

Use premade sauce, either homemade or store-bought.

Notes

IMPORTANT NOTE!! USE EITHER THE 1000 ISLAND DRESSING OR THE TOMATO SAUCE, DEPENDING ON WHAT WE FEEL LIKE ON THAT NIGHT. DON’T USE BOTH SAUCES ON THE SAME PIZZA.
The recipe for the dough makes enough dough for 4 12″ pies.
Pizza crust can be cooked in the oven, in a pizza oven, or directly on the grill, on a pizza stone, or on a grill mat.
Leftovers last 3-4 days.
Uncooked dough can be frozen, up to 4 months.
Tips for yeast dough:
You can “bloom” yeast in water or milk and sugar to see if it is still active. The liquid should be very warm. Some yeasts require no blooming.
Always check package of yeast for recommended temperature of liquid, different types and brands bloom best at different temps.
Don’t rush the rising process, if using regular yeast. The dough should be doubled in the pan.
Rise the dough in a warm spot, covered with a clean kitchen towel. Turn the oven on low and place the rising dough near the oven exhaust. Not directly under the exhaust but on top of the stove.
When using pizza yeast, there is no rising is necessary. 
Only a rest is required when using Rapid Rise Yeast.

  1. My wife introduced this to our family. Rather than using regular Pizza crust we use French Bread loaves cut in half lengthwise. We tweak it to our tastes as we decide what to put on it. Going to going to add some bacon and French fried onions with some BBQ sauce on one of them.

    1. That sounds great Ken! That’s what’s fun about recipes. They give you an idea and you run with it! Thanks for commenting!

  2. 5 stars
    Bacon cheeseburger pizza is the absolute bomb. My children loved this recipe and so did the hubby. Pinning for later.

  3. ………..is it just me or is there no where in this recipe where it tells you what to do with the tomato sauce???

    1. My apologies, Milton. I incorporated 2 recipes into one and was not clear. As I said in the post, I do a bunch with the 1000 island sauce, but I also do the tomato sauce for anyone who wants that, instead. Some people like one, others like the other. I usually have extra of the tomato sauce in the freezer, so that I can pull it out when needed. I will correct this right now. Thanks for bringing this to my attention!! I really appreciate it!!
