In a small bowl, sprinkle yeast and 1/4 teaspoon sugar over the warm water. Let stand until yeast is bubbly, about 5 minutes. Stir in 2 tablespoons oil.
In a food processor, combine flour, salt, pepper and the remaining 1 teaspoon sugar. Cover and pulse just until combined. With the processor running, pour yeast mixture through the feed tube in a steady stream. Process for 1 minute. Transfer the dough to a lightly greased bowl, turning once to grease the surface of the dough. Cover and let rise in a warm place until double in size (about 45 minutes).
Preheat oven to 400°F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside. Punch dough down. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide dough into four portions. Cover and let rest for 15 minutes. Pat or roll each portion of dough into an 8-inch circle. Place on the prepared baking sheets; brush tops with the remaining 2 tablespoons oil. Bake for about 8 minutes or until firm but not brown.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook sausage over medium-high heat until brown, using a wooden spoon to break up meat as it cooks. Drain off fat.
Prepare a charcoal grill (with a cover). Lightly coat one side of each crust with cooking spray. Carefully slide two of the crusts, coated-sides down, onto the lightly greased grill rack directly over low coals. Cover and grill for about 1 1/2 minutes or until bottoms are light brown and firm (tops will be dry but soft). Transfer crusts, grilled-sides up, to a flat baking sheet.
Spread each crust with 1/4 cup pasta sauce. Top with one-fourth of the sausage, ham, bacon, bell pepper and onion. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup cheese. Transfer pizzas from the baking sheet to the grill rack. Cover and grill for 4 to 6 minutes more or until crusts are crisp and cheese is melted, moving pizzas around to brown evenly. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to low. Carefully slide two of the crusts onto lightly greased grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above.)
Repeat with the remaining two crusts and the remaining toppings. Cut pizzas into wedges.
