Ingredients

1 pound refrigerated fresh pizza dough

3 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon yellow cornmeal
1/2 cup marinara sauce
1 cup (4 ounces) part-skim mozzarella cheese, shredded and divided
1/2 cup (2 ounces) grated fresh Parmesan cheese

4. Sprinkle cornmeal on a large baking sheet. Roll dough into a 12-inch circle; place on prepared baking sheet. Spread sauce over dough, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese. Spread beef mixture over cheese. Top with remaining mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses. Sprinkle with bacon.
