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
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
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
