Bacon, corn and basil pizza

For this pizza, I layered monterey jack cheese, cooked bacon and white corn on pizza dough. Normally I bake my pizzas on a baking stone at 450 degrees. This time, I preheated the oven and pizza stone at 500 degrees, and when I put the pizza in the oven, I lowered the temperature to 450. It resulted in a lighter crust, I will bake my pizzas this way from now on. After the pizza came out of the oven, I sprinkled the top with fresh basil. The flavors were fairly mild, but the topping combination was unique and it was a nice change of pace.

Great tip on preheating the oven to 500 and then baking at 450! Any tip to make a pizza crust lighter and flakier works for me.
