southern bbq pulled pork pizza... 30 minutes, plus dough rising

the goods:

pizza dough:
1 teaspoon active dry yeast
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 cup barbecue sauce
3 pieces of bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
2 roma tomatoes, thinly sliced
2 cups shredded cheese (cheddar, mozzarella, and monetery jack)
2 scallions, sliced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

Make the dough: pour 1 and 1/2 cups warm water into a bowl. Sprinkle the yeast over the water. Combine the flour and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer. With the mixer on low speed, drizzle in the olive oil until just incorporated. Gently stir the yeast/water mixture, then drizzle it into the mixing bowl. Mix until the dough forms a ball. Lightly oil a clean bowl and transfer ball of pizza dough into it. Turn it to coat in oil, then cover with a clean moist kitchen towel and set in a warm place for 1-2 hours.
Place a pizza stone in the oven and preheat to 500 degrees. Lightly oil a baking sheet. Divide the dough in half and one piece at a time stretch the dough to the desired shape and size. The thinner the better. Spoon barbecue sauce on dough and spread to the edges, leaving a little border of crust. Top with pork, bacon, red onion, roma tomato, and cheese. Sprinkle with scallion and transfer pan tot he pizza stone in the oven. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Sprinkle with cilantro, slice, and serve!
