Bacon, Onion, and Mushroom Pizza

    This was pretty tasty. I was hesitant because it doesn't have sauce but it has a lot of flavor. I cooked the bacon first then wiped most of the bacon fat out of the pan and used the rest to cook the onion and mushroom instead of the olive oil in the recipe. My only question - how do you get something from a rectangular shape into a circular shape? My husband rated this a four and I rated it a five. Wish I could do half stars on here.

    Another pizza, when I first saw it, didn't look like it would have been that great. Surprisingly, you don't even notice there is no 'real' sauce! The French bread dough is a must-- the flavor compliments much better than the regular dough. In addition, I used extra mushrooms and dried parsley. I served it with a simple salad.

    WOW!!! This was amazing! I didn't want to waste good bacon drippings, so I just sauteed the onions in the bacon pan instead of olive oil. I only had yellow/white cheddar in a block that I just sliced into thin short strips and placed on top. This was the first time I have sauteed mushrooms, and oh my goodness, I will never buy canned mushroom pieces again! The flavor was outstanding! Oh, and I just made a rectangle pizza....it looked nice when sliced into squares.

    I was wary of this recipe at first, seeing that it didn't involve a traditional sauce. After making it, you don't even miss it! The bacon and mushrooms are really tasty. This is a great, fast pizza recipe. I will definitely make this again!

    Yum! I used a smoked cheddar and cut the pizza into squares, resulting in more of a flatbread. Served with CL's Acorn Squash with Maple-Harissa Glaze. Unusual, but unified, flavors from the meal.

    We made this last night and it has a very good taste. We also made a rectangle because, why not? I would give the pizza pan a light spray of cooking spray because the dough/crust stuck some.

    One of my families favorites! I just leave it rectangle because all I did was tear the dough trying to make it a circle. You do not notice there is no sauce. I saute the onions and mushrooms together in the bacon grease and it is soooo good!

    I felt this needed a sauce of some sort. All refrigerated store bought dough in a can taste like biscuits; don't like the stuff.

    I have made this twice. Last night with the French Bread dough and once with the pizza dough in the can because I couldn't find the French bread. The pizza dough was definitely easier to work with than the French bread but the French bread dough turned out thinner and crispier. I love the flavor combo of the toppings and it made for a quick and easy weeknight meal. I did not miss having sauce either.
