Garlic Pizza With White Sauce & Breadmaker Pizza Crust

This pizza crust was Delicious!! This was my very first time to make my own pizza crust. I've always bought the premade crusts at the store, I'll never do that again, With my bread maker this crust was so easy and had such a great flavor! The topping for this pizza was good, very different from the normal type of pizza sauce we are used to but this was a yummy Pizza!
Breadmaker Pizza

1 cup water
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. salt
2 Tbs. olive oil
1 Tbs. sugar
2 tsp. yeast

After the dough has risen in the machine, grease a 14" pizza pan or baking pan. Stretch the dough to fit. Spread your favorite sauce, sprinkle on grated mozzarella (and Cheddar if you like), add toppings, and bake at 450 for 15 - 20 minutes.
Garlic Pizza with White Sauce
make Pizza dough
The toppings I chose were chicken,onion & bacon my family does not care for spinach.

3 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbs butter
3 Tbs flour
1 cup milk
4 slices bacon
10 ounces fresh chopped spinach
2 onions, sliced
1/2 tsp sugar
1 cup grated Parmesan
Garlic Sauce: This is basically a white sauce with garlic: Saute a few cloves minced garlic in 1 Tbs of butter. Add 3 Tbs of flour and cook for a few minutes, while stirring. Slowly add 1 cup of milk, whisking together so it's not lumpy. Bring to a simmer and cook 5 minutes, stirring almost constantly.

The toppings could be anything you like of course. One option is spinach, bacon, and caramelized onions with Parmesan cheese on top. Cook up a few slices of bacon, then chop or crumble it up and set aside. Leave just a tablespoon of the drippings in the pan and cook 10 ounces fresh chopped spinach for a few minutes, until wilted. Put the spinach in a colander and squeeze as much liquid out as possible. Put two sliced onions in the same pan and sprinkle with a spoonful of sugar. Cook slowly until browned, about 10-15 minutes. In the meantime, grate 1 cup Parmesan cheese, about 1 cup total.

Take your pizza crust and spread the garlic sauce on it. Add the onions and spinach and bake at 475 for 20 minutes. Add the bacon and Parmesan and cook another 5 minutes.
