Simple Pizza

By using a small ball of regular dough, about 3" in diameter, you can make a very delicious, personal size pizza. First, start by crisping up a piece of bacon or two (Do not drain drippings. They'll be used later.) 

Mmmmm! I absolutely love bacon!
 Then, once the dough has come to room temperature, lightly dust it with flour and begin flattening it by pressing it between your palms. Using your fingers, work the thickness of the dough out from the center to the edges, rotating the dough in a clockwise motion between your fingers. Continue this until the dough is relatively thin, and fairly circular. But it doesn't have to be perfect! Using the same non-stick skillet with bacon drippings, heat pan to a medium heat, being careful not to let it get too hot and smoke. Reshape your dough if necessary, then lay it out flat into the pan. Watch it closely as it will turn golden brown on bottom, and puff nicely in a short amount of time. Flip dough to brown the second side and cook completely through.

The dough is golden brown, so soft, and nearly done.
Turn off your burner and move the pan from the heat temporarily. Flip the dough to turn its hot side up, and sprinkle any type of shredded cheese you desire over the pizza. Cover and return the skillet to the burner (still keeping it off) for residual heat to help melt the cheese.

Never can have enough cheese on a pizza!

It should only take a minute or two for the cheese to completely melt.

 Finally, break the bacon into pieces and gently push them into the melted cheese. Now your delicious pizza is ready to enjoy!

This is the softest, freshest tasting homemade pizza I've had in a while. Using the skillet turned out to be an excellent method for making pizza. You should definitely try it for yourself and let me know what you think!
