1. Put the bacon on the bottom plate of the
griddle. Turn the Cuisinart® Griddler® on
and select Grill/Griddle. Set to 425°F. When
the bacon is brown and crispy, transfer to a
plate. Once cool, crumble and reserve.
2. Shape the dough into a rectangle that fits
the size of the griddle. Put the pizza dough
onto the griddle and close the Griddler®.
Set the count-up timer and cook for about
4 minutes, until lightly golden on both sides.
Open the grill and flip the pizza. Reduce
heat to 400°F.
3. Top the partially cooked pizza dough with
the sauce, olives and crumbled bacon.
Brush the edges of the pizza with the
olive oil.
4. Set the count-up timer again and continue
cooking for about 6 to 8 minutes in the open
position until the bottom of the pizza is
crispy and dough is fully cooked through.
