Directions

  1. Place frozen bread dough in refrigerator the night before you make this to lessen wait time.
  2. 5 hours before you are ready to eat, place the thawed bread dough on a pizza pan cooking spray (or greased, buttered, etc.). You can cover the dough with a towel, if you like, and set aside to rise. I like garlic, so, I sprinkle some garlic powder all over the loaf. Your choice.
  3. 3 hours should be ample time for the dough to have risen to double its original size. Punch down the dough and spread it out in the pizza pan about 1 hour, should not be more than 1.5 hours. (Though temperature will affect rise time. Warmer means faster.).
  4. Preheat oven to 375°F Place risen dough on pizza pan into oven for about 15 minutes. You want to want to remove it just as the crust starts to brown. When removed, raise the oven temperature to 400°F
  5. While the crust is baking, place 2 tablespoons of Olive oil in a skillet on Medium to Medium-High, add the sliced onion and diced bell pepper to the skillet. You could add the mushrooms here too, if you like. Add garlic powder (or fresh garlic) and salt to taste. Cook for about 15 minutes, until onions become shiny and translucent.
  6. If your cheese is not already shredded, you can do so while the vegetables are caramelizing. Once shredded, combine the cheeses to make a blend.
  7. Prepare the gravy.
  8. Allow the crust rest for about five minutes before assembling pizza. Don't forget to raise the temperature of the oven to 400°F.
  9. Using a spoon or a spatula, spread the Ricotta cheese evenly onto the toppings area of the pizza.
  10. Spread 1/2 gravy evenly over the Ricotta. Don't worry about sogginess, the crust.has been pre-baked and the Ricotta acts as a barrier protecting the crust. Do avoid letting the gravy pool up in the center (Pizza's weak point). Set aside remaining gravy to pour over pizza slices when served.
  11. Spread the pork over the gravy.
  12. Sprinkle the blend of shredded cheeses over the pork.
  13. Scatter the onion and bell pepper (and mushrooms, if you are including them) atop the cheese.
  14. Place the pizza in the oven and bake at 400F for 10 to 15 minutes (until crust is brown, cheese is thoroughly melted and some browning is beginning to occur on the toppings). Allow pizza to cool down for 5 minutes before slicing (makes for cleaner slices).
  15. Serve with gravy poured over the top and a fork. Delicious.
