Step-by-step instruction without your screen going to sleep

  • 2 slices uncooked thick-cut bacon, cut in 1/2-inch pieces, divided
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, for dusting
  • 15 ounces pre-made raw pizza dough, room temperature 
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons everything bagel seasoning
  • 1 large egg, hard boiled, grated, for garnish
  • 2 scallions, green part only, thinly sliced, for garnish


  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 shallot, peeled, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese


  • Parchment Paper
  • Step 1

    Place a large saucepan over medium heat, add bacon pieces and cook until crispy, about 7 to 8 minutes. Remove bacon from pan with slotted spoon and set aside. Leave the bacon grease in the pan to make the Parmesan cream sauce.

  • Step 2

    To prepare the sauce, add butter, shallot, garlic, and salt to the bacon grease and cook over medium heat until fragrant, about 2 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Add 2 tablespoons flour and nutmeg and whisk until fully combined.  Add the milk and increase heat to high. Continue to whisk until the sauce comes to a boil and begins to thicken, about 2 minutes Remove pan from heat and stir in 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese. Set aside.

  • Step 4

    Install SearPlate in the bottom level of the unit, then close door. Select FRESH PIZZA, set temperature to 500°F, and set time to 8 minutes. Press the setting dial to begin preheating. (The timer will start counting down as soon as the unit has preheated. Simply turn the dial to add time, or prep ingredients beforehand.)

  • Step 5

    While unit is preheating, lightly coat a rolling pin with flour, then roll to flatten out the pizza dough into an 11-inch round circle, about ¼-inch thick. Transfer the pizza dough to a sheet of parchment paper or a floured pizza peel.

  • Step 6

    Top the dough with the prepared Parmesan cream sauce, leaving a 1/2-inch perimeter for the crust. Top the sauce with half of the bacon and ¼ cup Parmesan cheese. Then, use a pastry brush or your fingers to gently rub the olive oil onto the outer edge of the dough, then sprinkle the oiled crust with everything bagel seasoning.

  • Step 7

    When unit has preheated, open door, then using the parchment paper, carefully transfer the pizza to hot SearPlate (do not use metal utensils on the plate). Close door to begin cooking.

  • Step 8

    After 4 minutes of cooking, open door and carefully pull the parchment paper out from under the pizza, allowing the pizza to go directly onto the SearPlate. Close door to finish cooking.

  • Step 9

    When cooking is complete, carefully remove pizza from the hot SearPlate. Let pizza cool for 5 minutes, then garnish with grated hardboiled egg, remaining bacon, and scallions. Serve and enjoy
