I watched Rachael cook this on her show and thought, "I have to try that!" However, it didn't quite live up to my expectations. It was good, but nothing special. Maybe I just like a saucy pizza- this was like cheesy bread with bacon to me (I did use bacon instead of pancetta). Anyway, I'm sorry to say that this was just okay.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 450°. Sprinkle a little cornmeal on a pizza pan or baking sheet.
  2. Place the pizza dough on the pan and stretch into a large round or rectangle. Drizzle the dough with EVOO and partially bake until puffed and golden, about 8 minutes.
  3. In a small skillet, heat a drizzle of EVOO over medium heat. Add the pancetta and cook, stirring often, until crisp, about 5 minutes.
  4. Transfer to a bowl and let cool. Add the ricotta, pecorino romano, egg yolks and garlic to the pancetta; season with pepper and stir to combine.
  5. Spread the ricotta mixture over the partially baked pizza dough, leaving a 1/2-inch border all around.
  6. Top with the provolone. Bake until the crust and topping are golden and cooked through, about 12 minutes.
  7. Scatter the parsley on top and cut into wedges.
