Deluxe Turkey Club Pizza

No recipe image available.This pizza goes after the elusive combination of tastes and textures present in a triple-decker classic club sandwich. Mayonnaise, tomato, bacon, turkey are all taken straight from the sandwich, and basil stands in for the more typical lettuce.

Recipe Ingredients:

Pizza Dough:
4 3/4 cups all-purpose flour - divided use
1 cup water, warm
1 (0.25-ounce) package active dry yeast or 2 1/4 teaspoons
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons sesame seeds

1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1 tablespoon crushed dried basil
4 ounces sliced cooked turkey
6 (slices) diced cooked bacon
1 tomato, thinly sliced
1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese

Cooking Directions:

  1. For Pizza Dough: In a medium bowl combine 2 cups flour, warm water, yeast, oil and salt. Beat with an electric mixer at low speed for 1 minute, scraping the sides of the bowl often. Continue beating for another 3 minutes at high speed. Fold in 2 1/2 cups flour. Place 1/4 cup flour on a work surface and knead the dough 3 to 5 minutes. Place dough in a greased bowl, cover, and let rise in a warm place for 1 hour. Punch down then shape onto a pizza pan.
  2. Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). Sprinkle pizza dough evenly with sesame seeds. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until the crust is light golden brown.
  3. For Toppings: In a small bowl combine mayonnaise and lemon peel; blend well. Spread the mixture over the partially baked crust. Top with Monterey Jack cheese, basil, turkey, bacon and tomato.
  4. Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). Sprinkle pizza with Swiss cheese. Bake 7 to 9 minutes, or until the cheese is melted. Serve hot.
