Butterball Meat Lover's Breakfast Pizza

Butterball Meat Lover's Breakfast Pizza from We are not Martha


1/2 batch cracked black pepper pizza dough (recipe below)
2 T extra-virgin olive oil
6 slices Butterball Turkey Bacon
1 Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage
1 T minced garlic
1/3 C shredded sharp cheddar cheese
5 large eggs
4 scallions, chopped

Cracked Black Pepper Pizza Dough:

1/3 T granulated yeast 
1/4 T sugar
3/4 T salt
1 1/3 C warm water 
1/8 C extra-virgin olive oil 
1 t finely ground black pepper
3-3 1/4 C unbleached all-purpose flour 


1)  For cracked black pepper pizza dough: Mix yeast, sugar, salt, warm water, and olive oil together in a large bowl. Let sit for 5 minutes.
2) Stir black pepper and 3 cups flour into the mixture with a wooden spoon. If mixture is still wet, stir in another 1/4 cup flour. Cover the bowl with a clean dish towel and set in a warm spot for 2-3 hours to let rise. If you’re not using the dough right away, cover bowl with plastic wrap and keep in fridge.
3) For pizza: Heat t a pan over medium heat. Place six strips of butterball turkey bacon on the pan and let cook for about two minutes before flipping. Cook for another two minutes and then flip again. Repeat until bacon is crispy, but not overly so as you’ll be baking it more on the pizza. Remove to paper towel-lined plate.
4) While bacon is cooking, slice sausage and place it in a frying pan with 1-tablespoon of the oil over medium heat. Stir frequently and cook until lightly browned. Remove to paper towel-lined plate.
5) Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees.
6) Roll dough on a floured surface into a large, thin round. Pinch the edges just a bit to create a little crust.
7) Place dough round on whatever you’ll be cooking pizza on, either a hot pizza stone or a foil-covered round pan.
8) Drizzle remaining tablespoon olive oil over the top and brush lightly. Sprinkle minced garlic all around. 
9) Sprinkle cheese across the entire dough round and crack eggs atop the pizza, too, making sure to keep them contained onto the dough. Crumble bacon and sprinkle over the pizza dough, along with sausage, and scallions.   
10) Bake at 425 degrees for 12-14 minutes, until eggs are cooked and crust is crispy.
