Star-Shaped Pizza

This dinnertime star attraction is five sides of cream cheese and bacon stuffed dough filled in the middle with mozzarella, tomatoes and basil.


  • For the dough:
  • 2 cups bread flour
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 tablespoon sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry yeast
  • For the pizza:
  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese
  • 2 strips bacon, cut into small pieces
  • Black pepper
  • 1/2 ball mozzarella cheese, sliced
  • 4 tablespoons tomato sauce
  • 4 cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • Basil


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine all pizza dough ingredients. Allow dough to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 390 degrees.
  3. Roll out pizza dough into a circle. Make 5 cuts around the edges of the dough without slicing all the way across.
  4. Spread a dollop of cream cheese on each section of dough. Top with bacon and pepper. Pinch corners of each section together, forming the star shape.
  5. Spread tomato sauce in the center of the star. Top with mozzarella slices, cherry tomatoes and basil.
  6. Bake pizza for 20 minutes.
