Cost: $15

Equipment

  • Skillet
  • Large rimmed baking sheet or baking stone/steel
  • Pizza peel (optional)
  • pastry brush

Ingredients

  • 4 slices bacon chopped
  • 1 (14- to 16-ounce) ball pizza dough
  • ½ to ⅔ cup super-easy marinara sauce (or use my Barbecue Pizza Sauce for an extra-summery pizza)
  • 6 ounces low-moisture mozzarella shredded (about 1½ cups)
  • ½ cup diced ham steak (about half of an 8-ounce ham steak)
  • ½ cup diced fresh pineapple (use canned if you can't find fresh)

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 500°F (if using a baking sheet) or as high as it will go (if using a baking stone/steel; place the stone/steel in the bottom third of the oven before you start preheating).
  • Cook the chopped bacon in a medium skillet over medium heat until it just begins to crisp up at the edges, about 5 minutes. Remove the skillet from the heat and transfer the bacon to a paper towel–lined plate to drain. Do not wipe out the skillet.
  • If you're using a baking stone/steel, turn the oven to Broil on high.
  • Stretch or roll out your dough to a 12-inch circle, then transfer it to an oiled or parchment-lined baking sheet or a lightly floured pizza peel (if using a baking stone/steel).
  • Use a pastry brush to coat the dough lightly with bacon grease from the skillet. Spread the sauce evenly over the dough, leaving a ½-inch border all around. Top with half of the cheese, then the ham, pineapple, and bacon, spreading everything out evenly. Finish with the remaining cheese.
  • Transfer the pizza to the oven and bake until the crust is golden and the cheese has browned in spots—8 to 10 minutes on the baking sheet, 6 to 8 minutes on the baking stone/steel.
  • Remove the pizza from the oven. Let it cool for about 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
