Prepare bacon according to package directions and chop into ~1" squares. Add mushrooms and butter to the frying pan and sautee until soft.

Spoon sauce in the center of the pizza crust and spread to edges. Sprinkle chopped bacon and cooked mushrooms over sauce and cover with 2 cups of shredded mozarella cheese.

Bake an additional 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and crust is slightly browned and crispy.
