Cook time
Total time
Serves: 8
  • 1 lb uncooked pizza dough
  • 6 strips thick cup bacon
  • 1 cup tomato and basil pasta sauce
  • 1 cup loosely packed fresh spinach
  • 2 cups Sargento Shredded Mozzarella & Provolone Cheese, divided
  • ½ cup cheery tomatoes - cut in half
  • 1 small handful of fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • 1 tsp sriracha sauce (more or less to taste)
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes - optional
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 400 F
  2. Cook bacon in a skillet or in oven until only slightly crispy (you want to be able to chop the bacon without it crumbling)
  3. Spray a large pizza pan with non-stick cooking spray. Form pizza dough to fit pan, rolling the ends inward to create outer crust.
  4. Using a fork, make several indentions in the dough to prevent it from bubbling up when cooking
  5. In a medium bowl, combine pasta sauce and sriracha sauce
  6. Spread sauce evenly over pizza and bake for 10 minutes
  7. Remove from oven and add layer of spinach, half of the cheese, chopped bacon and remaining half of cheese
  8. Bake for an additional 10 minutes
  9. Remove from oven and add cherry tomatoes, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes and fresh basil
  10. Serve immediately and enjoy!
