This is a very filling pizza that my husband loves. My mom and dad use to make it when I was young, and it was always a treat.

  • Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat, and saute the pepperoni and bacon until evenly browned. Mix in the mushrooms, onion, and green pepper. Cook and stir about 5 minutes, until tender.

  • In a medium saucepan over medium heat, mix the ingredients from the skillet with the tomato sauce and beer. Season with garlic, oregano, thyme, and salt. Allow the mixture to simmer for about 15 minutes, until slightly thickened. Spread over the 2 pizza crusts, and top with cheese.

  • Bake 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until the cheese is melted and the crust is golden brown.

This pizza is so good that since we tried it Pizza night is not the same. For those that found this pizza grease I have a little change to share: Instead of the pepperoni use extra lean ground beef you may add a little extra flavor by using red and green peppers chopped. One more trick is to let the sauce cool down before adding to the crust so that the crust doesn't become soggy while baking. Read More

Would not be a Pizza I would "crave" but was tasty. It is not necessary to use oil to cook bacon and pepperoni....they make plenty of "grease" to cook onions/peppers in may even drain before adding to tomato sauce. Read More

I made this pizza on Monday night and was so thrilled with the flavor! My husband and I loved it! You can add any topping but the flavors meld together so well and it is a hearty homemade treat! I will make this pizza recipe on a regular basis. Thanks for the recipe! I wouldn't change a thing! Read More

A nice change from your regular pizza sauce. I couldn't find pepperoni sausage so I just added regular pepperoni when the bacon was finished cooking. The sauce was a little runny; I might try adding a little tomato paste next time. Read More

I went with Pattycakes suggestion and used some Italian sausage and then put my pepperoni on top. I added some black olives too but just because I love them and feel they make every pizza better. My sauce ended up a bit runny BUT that was probably due to the extra grease I added. This was my first time to make a pizza from scratch and I was thrilled with the results. Read More
