  • Mix ricotta cheese, green onions, 1 tablespoon olive oil, and red pepper flakes together in a bowl. Spread over pizza crust.

  • Heat remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil in a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Place pizza crust with ricotta mixture in the skillet; add bacon and Parmesan cheese and cook the bottom of the pizza, 3 to 4 minutes.

  • Leave pizza in the skillet and place in the preheated oven to bake until top of pizza begins to brown slightly, 7 to 8 minutes. Remove pizza from the oven carefully, top with salt and pepper, arugula, and a drizzle of lemon juice, in that order. Serve warm.

Cook's Notes:

Sliced pepperoncini adds good flavor to the pizza, if that's your style.

You can substitute flatbread for the pizza crust if you want a lighter bite. You can also use a homemade thin crust instead of store-bought, if desired.

Place this pizza on your grill for an even better flavor experience.
