You'll use the tomatoes reserved from Braised Pork with Slow-Cooked Collards, Grits, and Tomato Gravy here. Purchase one pound of pizza dough and use most of it here; the rest becomes grilled flatbreads for Red Lentil Dal with Carrot Salad and Coriander Flatbreads.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, torn into bite-sized pieces
  • 1.5 ounces Parmesan cheese, grated (about 1/3 cup)
  • 4 ounces fresh baby spinach

Preparation

1. Remove dough from refrigerator. Let stand at room temperature, covered, 30 minutes.

2. Place a heavy baking sheet in oven. Preheat oven to 500° (keep baking sheet in oven as it preheats).

3. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add 1 teaspoon oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add onion; cook 4 minutes or until softened, stirring frequently. Remove onion from pan. Add 1 teaspoon oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add garlic; cook 1 minute, stirring frequently. Add tomatoes, 1 tablespoon oregano, pepper, and salt; cook 4 minutes or until most of liquid evaporates, stirring mixture occasionally.

Spread tomato mixture evenly over dough, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Top with onion and cheeses. Bake at 500° for 12 minutes or until crust is golden and cheese is lightly browned.
