1 teaspoon Basil

1 teaspoon garlic powder


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Roll dough out to 14″ circle and put on a pizza pan, put all the ingredients in order on half of the dough ( half moon shape), do not go all the way to the ends, you need this to crimp your dough. Fold the dough over and crimp the ends  together. Put in the oven and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25  minutes or until it is golden brown. Slice and serve with pizza or marinara sauce.  Makes 4 servings



Bacon Taco Shell

The bacon taco shell is fairly easy to make at home.

Ingredients: 4 strips of bacon (your choice of flavor)

Prep: Just create an overlapping bacon “fabric” by weaving the strips together. Drape the shell over a taco-shaped mold (such as aluminum foil or small Pyrex bowls) to form the signature crunchy taco shape. Cook the sheet in the oven at 400 degrees until browned and crispy. Once cool, fill it with your favor taco ingredients and enjoy!

I saw this on I thought I had to share this with all my bacon lovers. How cool is this.
