For pizza dough in a bread maker (makes enough dough for four 9 deep dish pies): Add water, olive oil, salt, flour, sugar and yeast in the order given into your bread maker. Set on Dough Only mode and start. This takes about 1 hour and 20 minutes. Place bacon on a slotted roasting pan. Bake at 375 degrees F for about 25 minutes. Remove from oven and increase oven temp to 475 degrees F. Place oil in a large frying pan. Brown ground beef over high heat. When fully browned, drain grease if necessary. Add onion and cook for a few minutes, stirring often until onion is softened to your liking. Add garlic, continue to stir for a few minutes and remove from heat. When dough has risen, move it to a floured board. Punch dough down and cut into 4 equal pieces. Form the dough sections into 10-inch rounds and cover with a clean kitchen towel. Let it rise for about 30 minutes. Press each piece of dough into a greased 8 cake or pizza pan. Press dough about 1 1/2 up the sides. Cover and let it rest about 5 minutes. Layer sauce (recipe below), meat mixture, Parmesan, Muenster, cheddar, bacon and mozzarella over the crusts. Bake at 475 degrees F for about 30 minutes until cheese is nicely browned and filling is bubbly. For the 1000 Island sauce: Make a paste out of salt and garlic. Smash garlic with the side of a knife. Keep mixing and smashing until a thick paste forms. Put the relish, mayonnaise, garlic paste, ketchup, salt and pepper in a small bowl and mix together. Makes 4 eight inch pizza pies.
