 You can also use two 14-inch (35 cm) round pizza pans instead of the rectangular ones, but the yield will be smaller and shapes inconsistent.

Ingredients

  • 5 cups all purpose flour (approx)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon liquid honey
  • 1 pkg active dry yeast (2-1/4 tsp/11 mL)
  • 3 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
Topping:
  • 6 oz thick-sliced bacon diced (about 1-1/3 cups/325 mL)
  • 2 cups thinly sliced red onions
  • 1 green onions cut in 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2/3 cups grated Romano cheese
  • 6 oz goat cheese crumbled (about 1-1/4 cups/300 mL)

Method

In bowl, stir together 1 cup (250 mL) of the flour, oil, honey, yeast and 2 cups (500 mL) warm water until combined. Cover with plastic wrap; let rise in warm place until bubbly and almost doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.

With wooden spoon, stir in all but 1/2 cup (125 mL) of the remaining flour, sesame seeds and salt to form ragged dough. Turn out onto floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6 minutes, adding as much of the remaining flour as necessary.

Place in greased bowl, turning to grease all over. Cover with plastic wrap; let rise in warm place until doubled in bulk, about 1-1/2 hours.

Divide dough in half. Place each on greased 16- x 12-inch (40 x 30 cm) rimmed baking sheet. Pressing with fingertips and gently pulling at edges, stretch to fit pans.

Topping:
Sprinkle bacon, red and green onions, and pepper evenly over dough; top with Romano cheese.

Bake in bottom third of 450°F (230°C) oven until bottom of crust is golden, about 18 minutes. Sprinkle goat cheese over top; bake until cheese is slightly melted, about 4 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes. Cut each pizza into 36 squares.
