Man Food: Pizza

     Welcome back, seekers of gastronomical ruggedness. In the interim, between last post and this, I have reflected inwardly. What was I reflecting upon? How often to butch you and your taste buds up. Originally I wanted to post once a month but, Beef Jerky  (Still being capitalized) was so friggin awesome I'm Man Fooding your face twice a month.

Now lets begin. Ready? GO!! Pizza with BACON.

What your going to need.
Ingredients: (This made 2 pies)
  • Flour (~2 cups*)
  • Corn Starch (1 Cup)
  • Corn Meal (1 cup)
  • Olive Oil (1 Tbsp)
  • Yeast (1 Tbsp)
  • Water (~1 1/2 cup*)
  • Salt (1 Tsp)
  • Sugar (2 Tsp)
  • Helicopter (optional)
  • Toppings (1 lb. of bacon, not optional)  
         *More of these may needed to be added while kneading the dough the moisture in   
  the air ad in your hands affects the dough to the point of not enough or to much moisture
  1. Start by adding your yeast, sugar, and olive oil to warm water. Warm the water first you don't want to kill the yeast.
  2. In a separate bowl combine your flour, corn starch, corn meal, and salt
  3. After your yeast has been activated (It will have a head to it) 

   4. Go ahead and shove both mixture into a a bowl and mix with a spoon until everything 
       is "lumpy" then dig in with your hands. 
   5. If the dough is sticking to your hands then its time for more flour. If all the ingredients 
      aren't coming together, then you need more flour. Dough should be like Voltron. 
      everything working together in the right amounts.

 When the dough has been brought together and kneaded throw a towel over the bowl and let the dough rise and move on to the second part. BACON.

Cook it how you want, Ive seen too much of epic mealtime to not cook it like a professional baconerteror, in the oven

Lay out your non-optional bacon on a cookie sheet in a the manner above, place the cookie sheet, now paved with victory, into a 400˚ oven for 10-12 minutes pull it out flip it and repeat.

Now is the time for the final steps.

Preheat your oven to 400˚ or leave it on from your baconing.

Stretch your dough over a cookie sheet. Slather on some sauce (I used a homemade from the garden sauce, recipe coming soon), then put your toppings on, then cover them with cheese. Cheese goes on top, it holds in the baconie goodness.

  • How to stretch your dough, drape it over your fingers on both hands and gentle widen the gap between careful not to tear it.

  • Cookie sheet. Oil it, non-stick spray it, or flour it.
Fold over and lightly flour

Oven time is about 15-20 minutes. or until the bottom of the crust is lightly browned

Bam! Pizza! Done. Michelangelo would be proud.
