For the Pizza Dough (You can also use store-bought dough):

  • 1 1/2 cups warm water (110°F/43°C)
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast (1 packet)
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt

For the Pizza Toppings:

  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce (homemade or store-bought)
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup sliced pepperoni
  • 1/2 cup cooked and crumbled Italian sausage
  • 1/2 cup cooked and crumbled bacon
  • 1/4 cup sliced black olives
  • 1/4 cup sliced green bell peppers
  • 1/4 cup sliced red onions
  • 1/4 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup sliced pickled jalapeños (optional, for a spicy kick)
  • Fresh basil leaves for garnish (optional)


Step 1: Prepare the Pizza Dough (Skip if using store-bought dough)

  1. In a small bowl, combine warm water and granulated sugar. Stir until the sugar is dissolved.
  2. Sprinkle the active dry yeast over the water-sugar mixture and let it sit for about 5-10 minutes until it becomes frothy, indicating that the yeast is active.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt.
  4. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and pour in the yeast mixture and olive oil.
  5. Stir until the dough comes together and forms a ball.
  6. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead it for about 5 minutes until it’s smooth and elastic.
  7. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover it with a clean kitchen towel, and let it rise in a warm place for 1-2 hours or until it doubles in size.

Step 2: Preheat the Oven

  1. Preheat your oven to 475°F (245°C). If you have a pizza stone, place it in the oven while it’s preheating.

Step 3: Roll Out the Dough

  1. Punch down the risen dough to release excess air.
  2. On a floured surface, roll out the dough into a circle or rectangle, depending on your preference and the shape of your baking sheet or pizza stone.

Step 4: Assemble the Pizza

  1. If using a pizza stone, transfer the rolled-out dough to a piece of parchment paper to make transferring to the hot stone easier.
  2. Spread the pizza sauce evenly over the dough, leaving a small border around the edges for the crust.
  3. Sprinkle half of the shredded mozzarella cheese over the sauce.
  4. Layer on the pepperoni, Italian sausage, bacon, black olives, green bell peppers, red onions, mushrooms, and pickled jalapeños (if desired).
  5. Top with the remaining mozzarella cheese.

Step 5: Bake the Pizza

  1. If using a pizza stone, carefully transfer the parchment paper with the pizza onto the hot stone.
  2. Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until the crust is golden and the cheese is bubbling and slightly browned.
  3. If you’re not using a pizza stone, simply place the pizza on a baking sheet and bake as directed above.

Step 6: Garnish and Serve

  1. Remove the Meat Lovers Pizza from the oven and let it cool for a minute or two.
  2. Optionally, garnish with fresh basil leaves for a burst of flavor and freshness.
  3. Slice the pizza, serve it hot, and enjoy this carnivore’s dream of a meal.


The Meat Lovers Pizza is a carnivore’s delight, with its medley of savory meats and gooey cheese. Whether you’re enjoying it with friends, family, or just treating yourself, this pizza is sure to satisfy your cravings for a hearty, meaty meal.
