  • 1 ready made pizza dough (store bought, bakery or homemade)
  • 1/2 cup pancetta or bacon (cubed or chopped)
  • 1/2 pepper (chopped)
  • 1 cup chopped mushrooms
  • 15 grape or cherry tomatoes (halved)
  • 1/2 teaspoon basil (divided or 5-6 fresh leaves chopped)
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano (divided)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (divided)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (divided)
  • 3/4 cup firm mozzarella shredded


  • Pre heat oven to 450°F (250° C).
  • In a small bowl combine, halved tomatoes, half the spices - (basil, oregano, salt) and 1 tablespoon olive oil, mix together. Set aside.
  • In a small pan add 1 tablespoon olive oil, the pancetta or bacon, mushrooms, pepper and the remaining half spices cook on medium heat uncovered until golden.
  • On a small - medium size pizza pan (10 inches / 26 cm), drizzle a little olive oil (approximately 1 -2 teaspoons), place rolled out pizza dough on top, and add in the following order, pancetta mixture, tomato mixture (spread both evenly on 1/2 the pizza dough), and then the shredded mozzarella.
  • Gently pull the other half of the pizza dough to cover the mixture filled side and crimp the edges (wet finger tips to help dough stick), so that none of the filling escapes. Bake for approximately 15-20 minutes or until golden, let sit 5 minutes before cutting. Buon Appetito!
