Homemade Pizza

One of the easiest ways to have pizza at home is to buy some pre-made pizza dough and slightly cook it, and then top it with your favorite toppings. I like using the pizza dough from Trader Joe's but any will do.

Here's the original recipe adapted from Food Network.

Prep Time: 20 min | Cooking Time: 20 min | Difficulty: Easy | Serves: 2

Ingredients:
Thick Strips Baconthinly sliced
1/2 large White Onionthinly sliced
3-5 Dried Figs, thinly sliced
Kosher Salt And Freshly Ground Black Pepper
3 Tbsp Store bought Pesto
3 Tbsp Sour Cream
A Little Bit of Mozzarella for topping, fresh or shredded
1/2 pound fresh Pizza Dough
All-Purpose Flourfor dusting

Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat, stirring from time to time, until browned and crispy. Transfer to paper towels to drain; keep warm. Add the onion slices to the drippings in the skillet; season with salt and pepper. Cook until light brown and tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Taste for seasoning.

2. Combine the sour cream and pesto together in a small bowl and set aside.

3. Roll the pizza dough into an 8-by-14-inch rectangle on a lightly floured surface. Roll the dough around the rolling pin and unroll it onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Place in the center of the oven and bake for 8 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown.

4. Spread the sour cream and pesto mixture on the crust. Dot with the onions and some of the bacon drippings from the pan; sprinkle with the bacon. Top with the figs and cheese and bake again for 3-5 minutes.
