  • 1/2 batch NY Times Pizza Dough or 10 oz dough
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp granulated garlic
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 1/2 cups full-fat mozzarella cheese
  • 5 slices cooked bacon
  • 4-7 slices boar's head pepperoni (sliced thinly at the deli counter)
  • 2-3 tbsp truffle honey


  1. Preheat oven to 550 degrees. Place pizza stone in the middle rack of the oven. After the oven heats, continue to heat the pizza stone for 30 minutes to an hour. 

  2. In a small bowl, whisk together tomato paste, water, sugar, garlic, oregano and a pinch of salt. 

  3. Use hands to stretch out each pizza dough one at a time on a heavily floured pizza peel. Make sure it can easily slide around.

  4. Spread the sauce over the crust. Sprinkle with cheese. Lay bacon slices on top, followed by pepperoni. 

  5. Gently slide the pizza onto the pizza stone. Cook for 10-12 minutes until the crust is crispy and golden brown the cheese is bubbly and starting to brown. Let pizza sit for 1-2 minutes, then drizzle with truffle honey and cut into slices.
