It’s oh-so-very lovely when you don’t have to run to the store for a recipe. If need be, you can substitute other pizza-friendly cheeses, add mushrooms, spinach, bell pepper – the combinations are pretty much limited only by your imagination.

Spoiler alert: I TOTALLY dropped some bacon. Accidentally on purpose (but just a teeny bit).
