I had this at Ducali in the North End and had to run home and make it.

One pound of pizza dough

Three tablespoons olive oil

Garlic powder

Oregano

Salt and pepper

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Two cups of a good tomato sauce for dipping

One pound mozzarella cheese

1/2 cup or more of pickled jalapeño peppers

1/2 cup to a cup of chopped black olives

One red pepper and one green pepper cut into one inch cubes

Four cooked Italian sausages cut into slices

15 small cooked meatballs

8 slices Genoa salami cut into triangles

8 slices provolone cheese cut into triangles

12 slices pepperoni

1/3 cup of Parmesan cheese

Optional add ins can be avocado, Ricotta cheese, sliced sweet onion, roasted eggplant and drained chick peas.

Pepperoncini for garnish

preheat the oven to 500 degrees

Greasea pizza pan with Crisco

Spread out the dough

Drizzle withe the olive oil

Sprinkle with the salt, pepper, garlic powder and oregano

Bake for about ten minutes or more

You want the bottom of the dough to be brown and crusty

Cut the dough into two  to three inch pieces either strips or triangles

Place on the bottom of a  oven proof platter

Start assembling everything

I assemble in this order but do what you like.

1/2 pizza dough, handful mozarella cheese, 1/2 sausage, 1/2 the meatballs. 1/2 the peppers/ 1/2 the jalapenos, 1/2 the chick peas. 1/2 the provolone, pepperoni and salami.

Sprinkle with parmesan cheese

Another handful of mozzarella cheese

Repeat

Ending with the dough and mozzarella cheese sprinkled with Parmesan cheese

Bake untill all the cheese is melted and bubbley and te meat is hot

Garnish with fresh basil

Use the tomato sauce as a dip

I also put out a dish of Ricotta cheese to dip into.

Loosen your belt.

These will disappear

This can be made ahead of time and reheated
