Add flour, sugar, yeast, and salt to a mixing bowl and stir to combine. You may also use a stand mixer. Pour in 3/4 cup warm water and 1 tbsp olive oil while stirring (or while the stand mixer is running), until dough becomes cohesive. If dough is too crumbly and dry, add additional warm water about 1 tbsp at a time until dough reaches the desired consistency. If dough is too wet, add extra flour a small amount at a time.
Work dough into a ball and turn out onto a work surface that has been dusted with flour. Lightly knead the dough, then add to a clean bowl that has been coated with olive oil. Cover, and let dough rise in a warm area for about one hour.
Once dough has doubled in size, turn out dough and divide into two equally-sized, round portions.
In a large saucepan, add 5 cups of water and 1/3 cup baking soda and stir to combine. Bring mixture to a boil. Dunk one dough section in boiling water mixture , flipping after 15-20 seconds and allowing the other side to boil for another 15-20 seconds. Remove dough from water and allow to drain and cool on a wire rack for a minute or two.
Grease a 9" round baking pan with olive oil or cooking spray and add the dough portion to it, pressing dough evenly along bottom of baking pan.
Peel and thinly slice potato, sprinkle 1 tsp of salt over slices, and let slices sit while you prepare the rest of the toppings.
Preheat oven to 475°F. Over top of the pizza dough, brush about 1 1/2 tbsp of olive oil. Add minced garlic and spread evenly over dough surface. Sprinkle bacon crumbles and basil, then arrange potato slices in as close to a single layer as you can over the pizza surface, then drizzle some olive oil over potato slices. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over top of potatoes.
Bake pizza for approx. 15-20 minutes, until the Parmesan and potato edges brown, and the crust has firmed.
Crust recipe yields enough dough for two pizzas cooked in a 9" round baking pan. If only cooking one, you can wrap one in plastic wrap and freeze.
