I stumbled across this recipe while looking for something different to take to a brunch. Boy, am I glad I did! Everyone asked for the recipe and was surprised it called for only five ingredients. It's the perfect treat to bake for an informal get-together. —Traci Collins, Cheyenne, Wyoming

Ingredients

  • 12 bacon strips, diced
  • 1 loaf (1 pound) frozen bread dough, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1 envelope (1 ounce) ranch salad dressing mix

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat for 5 minutes or until partially cooked; drain on paper towels. Roll out dough to 1/2-in. thickness; brush with 1 tablespoon of oil. Cut into 1-in. pieces; place in a large bowl. Add the bacon, cheese, dressing mix and remaining oil; toss to coat.
  2. Arrange pieces in a 9×5-in. oval on a parchment-lined baking sheet, layering as needed. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 30 minutes or until doubled.
  3. Bake at 350° for 40 minutes. Cover with foil; bake 15 minutes longer or until golden brown.
