3/4cupshredded sharp white cheddar cheese

Roll the dough out on a piece of parchment paper that's lightly coated with flour. Roll it into approximately a 16x10-inch rectangle.
Spread butter all over the dough. Set aside about 1/4 cup of bacon and sprinkle the rest across the pizza dough.
Set aside about 1/4 cup of mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle the rest of the mozzarella cheese as well as the cheddar cheese on the dough.
Sprinkle the parsley and garlic over the dough.
Starting at one long in, roll the dough up. Pinch the seam to seal and place it so that the seam is on the bottom.
Slice into 10 slices.
Place the slices cut side down in a greased, large cast iron pan. Or you can place them in a 9x13-inch pan.
Cover with a kitchen towel or plastic wrap and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Uncover rolls and bake for 18 to 20 minutes.
Sprinkle the set aside bacon and cheese on top and bake another 3 to 5 minutes to melt the cheese. Serve warm.
Pepperoni slices or cooked and crumbled sausage can be used instead of the bacon.To spice this dish up, add 1/2 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes.
