Serves 4


  • 2 whole heads of garlic

Companion recipe: Basic Tomato Sauce Yeast-Free Pizza Dough


Place a pizza brick, unglazed terracotta tile or baking sheet in the oven. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

Wrap each head of garlic in foil. Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until tender. Cool slightly, then cut each bulb in half and press out the garlic pulp. Discard the husk.

Trim the bacon of all fat and cut into 3-4 inch pieces.

On a floured surface, press out the pizza dough, using your fingertips, into a 12 inch circle (always pressing from the inside of the dough to the outside).

Place the pizza dough on your heated brick, tile or baking sheet. Spread the garlic over the surface and then top with tomato sauce. Arrange the bacon strips over the sauce and then sprinkle with the mozzarella.

Bake for 15 minutes, or until the pizza is golden on the edges and crisp underneath.
