This meat-lover's pizza is equally pleasing as a family dinner or for a casual party. For the best flavor, shred and grate the cheeses yourself.
1 pound refrigerated fresh pizza dough
1/2 pound ground sirloin
1 1/4 cups sliced onion
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 center-cut bacon slices, cooked and crumbled
How to Make It
Place dough in a bowl coated with cooking spray. Let stand, covered, 30 minutes or until dough comes to room temperature.
Preheat oven to 450°.
Cook beef in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until browned; stir to crumble. Drain. Add onions to pan; sauté 6 minutes or until tender and beginning to brown. Add garlic; sauté 1 minute. Add beef, rosemary, and pepper to onion mixture.
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.
Bake at 450° for 15 minutes or until crust is golden. Cut pizza into 8 wedges. Serves 8 (serving size: 1 wedge)
