From the Test Kitchen

Tonight’s dinner is inspired by flavors of the Mediterranean. Briny kalamata olives, feta cheese, and a layer of simply dressed fresh tomatoes top the pizza. On the side, we’re using basil pesto as a dressing for our salad, which slightly softens the kale while the pizza bakes.

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients & make the kale salad:
1 Prepare the ingredients & make the kale salad:

Remove the dough from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 475°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel and thinly slice the shallot. Tear the mozzarella cheese into small pieces. Using the flat side of your knife, smash the olives; remove and discard the pits, then roughly chop. Remove and discard the stems of the kale; finely chop the leaves. Roughly chop the peppers. In a large bowl, combine the chopped kale and peppers, pesto (stirring before adding), half the pecorino cheese (you will have extra), and a drizzle of olive oil. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes; season with salt and pepper to taste.

Assemble the pizza:
2 Assemble the pizza:

While the kale marinates, lightly oil a sheet pan. Using your hands, gently stretch the dough to a 1/4-inch thickness. If the dough is resistant, let rest 5 minutes. Carefully transfer to the sheet pan; rub the dough into the pan to coat the bottom in oil. Leaving a 1-inch border around the edges, spread the tomato sauce onto the prepared dough. Evenly top with the sliced shallot, torn mozzarella cheese, feta cheese (crumbling before adding), and chopped olives

Bake the pizza:
3 Bake the pizza:

Bake the pizza 19 to 21 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the crust is golden brown. Remove from the oven and let stand at least 2 minutes.
