Pizza without filters

I love our pizza oven! Without a doubt, it has been one of the best purchases we’ve made, alongside my grills. It makes the difference between good and fantastic pizza in how it’s cooked. And I must say that in a pizza oven, they just get that much better.

There are many pizza ovens on the market these days, and you should choose one that fits your budget and needs. What they all have in common is that they will provide you with many great dining experiences with your family and friends.

There’s a tendency to go overboard with toppings on pizza, but one of the secrets to a good pizza is actually that it doesn’t need much, so “less is more,” as I also mention in the headline. You should be able to taste the individual ingredients, and with this pizza, it’s umami that dominates.

And on a pizza with beef and bacon, there’s a lot of umami flavor! Bacon, beef, parmesan, and even the tomato sauce contribute, and together, they create a really delicious pizza with an explosion of flavor. You should, of course, enjoy meat because there isn’t much green on it other than a sprinkle of oregano. When we make pizza at home, we usually make around 8 pizzas, so there are leftovers for packed lunches the next day and even an afternoon snack if hunger strikes.

Ingredient notes

Pizza dough – Homemade from scratch is best. But that being said, you can also skip this step and use ready-made dough from the refrigerated section.

Pizza sauce – Homemade is best, and it only requires a few ingredients. It forms the base of the flavor, and a tasty pizza sauce makes all the difference. Find the pizza sauce recipe here.

Beef – It’s ground beef; choose the quality and fat percentage you prefer to use.

Bacon – Sliced bacon. Lightly pre-cooked in a pan before placing it on the pizza to remove some of the moisture.

Mozzarella – Fresh mozzarella cut into smaller pieces. If you want it to be really good, use drained mozzarella. You can find it online and in some supermarkets.

Parmesan – Yes, most people might find it a bit strange, but it adds a super delicious flavor to the finished pizza.
