For the Dough:

  • 5 cups of Bob’s Red Mill All Purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon of sea salt
  • 1 tablespoons of sugar
  • 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoons of yeast
  • 1 ¾ cups of warm water 110° to 115°

For the Toppings:

  • 6 cloves of finely minced garlic mixed with 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • ½ cup of crushed tomatoes
  • 8 ounces of shredded mozzarella
  • 8 ounces of sliced mozzarella
  • ¼ pound of crisp cooked bacon cut into 2” pieces
  • 10-12 pepperoni slices
  • ¼ pound of raw loose sausage separated into chunks
  • 1 sliced tomato
  • 2 sliced domestic mushrooms
  • ½ peeled and thinly sliced green pepper
  • ¼ cup of grated parmesan cheese
  • 15-20 basil leaves
  • sea salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste


  • Dough: Preheat the oven to 500°.
  • Add all of the ingredients to standing mixer with the hook attachment or to a clean surface. Mix until combined and knead in a mixer on low speed for 2 to 3 minutes or by hand for 5 to 6 minutes.
  • Cover with a towel and let double in size, about 90 minutes.
  • Next, drizzle some olive oil onto your sheet pan that you will be cooking in, I used a 12”x18”x2” sheet pan. If you have smaller sheet pans, then divide the dough and make 2 pizzas or reserve the remaining dough in the freezer.
  • Form the pizza dough to the sheet pan so that it is completely covered.
  • Next, evenly spread on the garlic and olive mixture all over the pizza making sure to leave a 1” crust around the outside.
  • Evenly spread on the crushed tomatoes also leaving a 1” edge around the outside and then layer on as followed: shredded mozzarella, sliced mozzarella, bacon, pepperoni, sausage, tomatoes, mushrooms, green peppers, parmesan cheese, basil leaves, salt and pepper.
  • Cook the pizza for 12 to 14 minutes at 500° or until browned and cooked through out.
  • Slice and serve!
