Backyard BBQ Pizza
1 Watkins Pizza Crust Mix (deep dish or whole wheat)
Watkins Barbecue Sauce
Up to 1 lb. Ground Turkey, as desired (may substitute beef)
7 or 8 strips crumbled Cooked Bacon (use thin cut and cook crisp)
2 cups grated Mozzarella Cheese,
Parmesan Cheese, as desired
Following the directions on the label of the Watkins Pizza Crust Mix, prepare dough. Roll dough out onto a large cookie sheet sprayed with Watkins Cooking Spray so crust will be thin. Bake the crust in oven for 4-5 minutes. Remove crust from oven and thinly spread Watkins BBQ Sauce over partially cooked crust. Layer remaining ingredients in order listed and return to oven for 10 minutes to complete baking cycle. You could also add your other favorite toppings to this pizza. Watkins Omelet and Soufflé Seasoning would be a great quick addition to shake over the top of pizza prior to final baking!
