    From the Test Kitchen

    Rich flavors abound in this crowd-pleasing focaccia pizza thanks to the thinly sliced brussels sprouts layered alongside two kinds of melty cheeses—finished with caramelized onion for incredible depth of flavor. For bright contrast, we’re elevating a simple ranch-dressed salad with fresh navel orange.

    tips & techniques
    Prepare the ingredients
    1 Prepare the ingredients

    Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 475°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the bread horizontally. Cut off and discard the stem ends of the brussels sprouts; halve lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Peel 1 clove of garlic; using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate into a paste. In a bowl, combine the tomato sauce, Italian seasoning, and garlic paste; season with salt and pepper.

    Assemble & bake the pizza
    2 Assemble & bake the pizza

    Line a sheet pan with foil. Place the halved bread on the foil, cut side up. Evenly top with the seasoned tomato sauce, sliced brussels sprouts, fontina, and mozzarella (tearing into small pieces before adding). Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake, rotating the sheet pan halfway through, 15 to 17 minutes, or until the bread is lightly browned and the cheese is melted. Remove from the oven. Let stand at least 2 minutes.

    Cook the pancetta
    3 Cook the pancetta

    Meanwhile, in a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the pancetta. Cook, stirring occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes, or until lightly browned and cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.

    Caramelize the onion
    4 Caramelize the onion

    Meanwhile, halve, peel, and thinly slice the onion. In the pan of reserved fond, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced onion; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes, or until lightly browned and softened. Add the vinegar (carefully, as the liquid may splatter), honey (kneading the packet before opening), and as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until combined. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

    Just before serving, to the bowl of prepared lettuce and orange, add the ranch dressing and a drizzle of olive oil. Toss to coat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.
