We’re celebrating Independence Day the only way we know how, with lots and lots of Naked Bacon! Now a lot of us like to celebrate the fourth with a bbq - hot dogs, hamburgers, and all that good stuff - and we all know Naked Bacon is an awesome addition to your grilling festivities. Everybody loves a homemade bacon cheeseburger, or a big crunchy salad topped with crumbled bacon, after all!
But some of us like to celebrate this holiday a little differently, with pizza! We were inspired by Martha Stewart to make this American Flag sheet pan pizza pie, featuring our sugar-free bacon as the stripes. Do the same and you’ll be the hit of the party!
Preheat the oven to 400F. On a large oiled baking sheet, spread the pizza dough into a rectangle shape. Spread the sauce evenly and top with mozzarella cheese, leaving about 2 Tbsp of shredded cheese to the side. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the dough is crispy on the bottom.
While the pizza cooks, fry the bacon in a large skillet to desired crispiness. Set it aside on a paper towel until cooled slightly. Once the pizza is cooked, lay the bacon in a stripe pattern from left to right.
Use the blue tortilla chips to cover a small area in a rectangle shape at the top, lefthand side of the pizza, breaking them apart if needed. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top in several small heaps to represent stars.
Why choose Naked Bacon? Well, our bacon has 44% less fat and 25% less sodium than other bacon, naturally! Not only is out bacon nitrate-free and sugar-free, but it’s absolutely delicious! We’re proudly a family owned company, based in the Midwest and serving the entire US through our online store.
