Crispy Pizza with Back Bacon And Sweet Little Pepper

I came upon this pizza from Zen Can Cook which really whets my appetite and I knew I had to try out the pizza dough to see if it is really as good as the photo depicts and true enough the texture of this pizza crust is light and crispy... I have some back bacon and a packet of sweet little peppers and mozzarela cheese left in the fridge so I used them as topping for the pizza. I wanted something light for the Piggies' supper ....as we know it is not good to have a heavy meal before bedtime :)) and this is just good for them. Hah...it was so good that I had 2 slices myself :P Gosh... how to go to bed early??? So, while waiting for the delicious pizza to get digested, I might as well get this posted up before I go to bed :)

these sweet little pepper are sweet and crunchy

mouthwatering toppings ...esp the back bacon

Sprinkle some italian herbs and cajun spice
for extra flavor

this crispy pizza crust is one that I will definitely
make again ....especially for my piggy cousin..
whom I have just added to the piggy clan :P

Don't judge the appearance...it is truly a slice of heaven ^ *

  • Basic Pizza Dough:
  • 4 cups all purpose flour, plus additional for kneading
  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon salt

In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast in 1 1/2 cup warm water. Whisk 2 cups of flour and the olive oil and cover with a damp cloth. Set aside in a warm place until doubled. About 1 hour. Stir in the remaining flour and the salt and knead.. yes KNEAD! for 5 minutes until the dough is smooth. It’s a good work-out! Let the dough rest for 10 minutes before rolling out or refrigerate
