Lazy pizzas on a Friday night

I love cooking. It’s always something I look forward to every day. Breakfast, brunch, lunch, meriendas, dinner, snacks, drunk concoctions—you name it. So when I found myself craving pizza on a Wednesday night I decided to delay my pleasure until the weekend and make the pizzas then. Also, my fridge was empty and only had time to go shopping on Friday night. Wild.



  • Shiitake mushrooms
  • Zucchini
  • Onions
  • Mozzarella cheese (grated)
  • Crispy bacon
  • Diced bacon
  • Pre-made pizza dough (I’m lazy)

For the sauce:

  • Crushed tomatoes
  • Garlic
  • Dried cayenne peppers (2-3 depending your heat tolerance)
  • Oregano (dried or fresh)
  • Basil (dry or fresh)
  • Salt & pepper
  • Olive oil


Chop the vegetables very thin so they can bake quick, set aside. Fry the bacon until very crispy, set aside. For the sauce: Sautée crushed garlic and the dried cayenne peppers in olive oil until golden on a medium heat. Add oregano and basil. When the oil is very fragrant add the tomatoes. Mix. Leave the sauce on a low simmer, add salt and pepper to taste. If the sauce is too acidic add a teaspoon of sugar. Then ensemble the pizza. Easy.





These pizzas won’t take you more than 30 minutes to make and it’s a great plan for the weekend if you’re planning to stay in and cook. Hope you all enjoy!
