Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza

3 cups bread flour 
2 tablespoons sugar 
1 package (1/4 ounce) quick-rise yeast 
1-1/2 teaspoons salt 
3/4 cup warm water (120° to 130°) 
2 tablespoons olive oil 
1 pound lean ground beef (90% lean) 
3 garlic cloves, minced 
1/8 teaspoon pepper 
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese 
1 jar (10 ounces) sun-dried tomato pesto 
1 large red onion, chopped 
1/4 cup bacon bits 
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese 
1 cup (4 ounces) sharp shredded cheddar cheese 

In a large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, sugar, yeast and salt. Add water and oil; mix until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a firm dough. 
Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 
Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium heat, cook the beef, garlic and pepper until meat is no longer pink; drain. 
On a floured surface, roll dough into a 15-in. circle. Transfer to a greased 14-in. pizza pan. Build up edges slightly. Prick dough thoroughly with a fork. Bake at 450° for 5-8 minutes or until lightly browned. 
Sprinkle crust with Parmesan cheese. Top with pesto, meat mixture, onion, bacon bits, and mozzarella and cheddar cheeses. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until cheese is melted. Yield: 6 slices.
