Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Heat a large skillet on medium-high heat. Chop the 4 raw slices of bacon and add to the skillet. Cook for 3 minutes (no longer), just so a bit of fat is rendered. You do not want the bacon to be crispy at this point. Remove it with a slotted spoon and set it aside in a bowl, then turn heat down to medium. Add in onion, peppers and tomato with a sprinkle of salt and stir. Cook for 5 minutes, continuously stirring. Add in garlic and cook for 3 more minutes. Completely drain clams, then add them to the peppers and onions along with half of the bacon. Cook for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and add a few shakes of hot sauce.
Spread pizza dough over a pizza pan. Brush olive oil over pizza dough evenly and sprinkle with italian seasoning. Sprinkle dough with 4 ounces of Mozzarella. Spoon clam mixture evenly over pizza, then top with remaining Mozzarella, Parmesan and the rest of the bacon. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until cheese is golden and bubbly.
