WILD DOUGH (1 hour)
Make your dough by mixing the sourdough starter, bread flour (adding a bit of flour at a time until it takes shape but is still a little sticky) and salt together. Knead the dough for 30 seconds, flour lightly as needed.
Place the wild dough in a lightly floured bowl and cover with a towel, set aside for 1 hour. (The pizza steel or stone needs to preheat for 1 hour as well, so preheat oven to 550°F after you finish making your pizza dough).
Bake bacon in oven on parchment paper lined baking pan at 420 degrees F. for 15 minutes, then flip. Cook bacon an additional 5 minutes, or until cooked (make sure not to overcook it because it will be cooking in the oven for an additional 10 minutes on the pizza). Remove bacon and drain on paper towel lined plate.
Preheat oven to 550°F with baking steel or pizza stone inside the oven for 1 hour.
Grate mozzarella cheese, dice onions, slice hot dogs lengthwise for a total of 8 hot dog slices.
MAKE CHEESE SAUCE: Grate cheddar cheese. Heat large pot to medium and melt butter, whisking constantly. Add flour and whisk 30 seconds. Add cream and whisk to mix well, then add cheddar cheese, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then turn off the heat and let cool. Reserve 1 cup of cheese sauce for the pizza sauce.
Flour surface and roll out the dough. Put a floured pizza peel underneath the dough. Add cheddar cheese sauce, mozzarella cheese, 8 bacon slices, then lay hot dogs slices on top of the bacon slices. Pat down the toppings before putting into the oven.
Bake pizza in the oven at 550 degrees F. for 8-10 minutes. Add some grated cheddar cheese if you want it even more cheesy. Let cool 5 minutes then slice it up!
