  • 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
  • 1/2 cup cherry 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


  • Preheat oven to 400 F
  • Cook bacon in a skillet or in oven until only slightly crispy (you want to be able to chop the bacon without it crumbling)
  • Spray a large pizza pan with non-stick cooking spray. Form pizza dough to fit pan, rolling the ends inward to create outer crust.
  • Using a fork, make several indentions in the dough to prevent it from bubbling up when cooking
  • In a medium bowl, combine pasta sauce and sriracha sauce
  • Spread sauce evenly over pizza and bake for 10 minutes
  • Remove from oven and add layer of spinach, half of the cheese, chopped bacon and remaining half of cheese
  • Bake for an additional 10 minutes
  • Remove from oven and add cherry tomatoes, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes and fresh basil
  • Serve immediately and enjoy!
