Second, Dress to Impress

Recipe for a yummy and healthy Mediterranean Salad Pizza:

  • One batch of Pizza Dough
  • 2 cups of mixed veggies, etc, chopped bite-size: cucumber, red/yellow/green bell pepper, red onion, calamata olives (halved), and grape tomatoes (halved).
  • 1 cup of grated Pecorino cheese
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • Red wine vinaigrette (1/2 cup olive oil + 1/4 cup red wine vinegar + one squeeze lemon juice + 1/2 tsp salt + 1/4 tsp ground pepper)
  • Salt and pepper

Heat the oven to 500 with a pizza or baking stone inside. Marinate the olives, tomatoes and veggies in the vinaigrette. Soak the crushed garlic in the 1/4 cup of olive oil. Remove the hot baking stone from the oven, and sprinkle with cornmeal. Lay the pounded dough flat on the stone, and pinch the edge for the crust, being careful of your fingers near the hot stone. Brush the entire pizza, including the edge, with the garlic infused olive oil. Spread out the toppings evenly, and sprinkle with the grated cheese. Finish with salt and pepper. Bake at 500 for about 8-10 minutes, until edges brown.
