  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.

    In a large measuring cup, stir together the water, yeast, salt, sugar, and olive oil. Let it sit for about 10 minutes. You should see the yeast start to bubble and grow.

    Fry or bake the bacon until crispy. Chop the bacon into a small dice.
  7. Step 7

    Punch down the dough and roll into into a soft ball.
  8. Step 8

    Place the dough on a large sheet of parchment paper, lightly grease your hands with oil, and push and flatten the dough to form the crust.
  9. Step 9

    Once it is thin enough (about 1/8-inch thick), spread the sour cream over the crust.
