Customize It Instructions

  • Meatlovers! Cook ground pork or chicken, cook in a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. If using ground pork, cook with 1 tsp. olive oil, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper breaking up pork until no pink remains and pork reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 5-7 minutes. If using diced chicken, pat dry and season all over with a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook with 2 tsp. olive oil, stirring occasionally until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes. If using 8 oz. bacon, line a plate with a paper towel. Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add bacon to hot pan. Flip occasionally until crisp and bacon reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 6-8 minutes. Transfer to towel-lined plate to remove excess oil. Add proteins to pizza as desired.
