BARELY brush bottom of crust and outer top of crust with EVOO. Add Bacon Mix. Spread around. Top with Moz. Cheese. Sprinkle with Parm. Cheese, getting the outer crust well, too. Bake according to directions.

Healthify this with Turkey Bacon, WILL NOT BE AS TASTY… And, not sure if you would need a tiny drizzle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil to cook Turkey Bacon.
