Yes, indeed, peppered bacon. Thick sliced from the butcher this stuff is good eating. However, baking bacon takes pork bellies to a whole different level. Think sweet and juicy. Not something normally related to pan-fried Arnold Ziffle but baking brings-out these qualities. If not for pizza, do yourself a big favor and try baking bacon instead of frying for a BLT or with some breakfast eggs.
To accomplish this, you'll need a section of racking (as in oven racking only smaller) placed over a cookie sheet. The cookie sheet will catch the drippings and avoid a mess. Bake for about 20 minutes at 450 and enjoy bacon heaven.
Craig, I like your idea of Jalepenos with bacon. I forgot to slice up some fresh tomatoes but these should work well with bacon also. Also, violate traditional pizza code and try a grilled pinapple, calabrian chilli, and Black Forest Ham pizza. It's admitttedly a delicious but possibly polarizing combo, but even if you don't like it, others who do will go absolutely nuts!!
