From the Test Kitchen

In this gourmet recipe, we’re making our own pizza with plenty of Mediterranean flair. The delicious combination of tangy feta cheese, piquant red onion and briny Kalamata olives (named for their native city in southern Greece) captures the bold, bright essence of Greek cuisine. Once the pizza is out of the oven, we’re finishing it with a special, seasonal touch: pea tips, the tasty leaves of the pea plant. (Before stretching out your pizza dough, let it come to room temperature—this way, it will be pliable and easier to handle!)

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Preheat the oven to 475°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Remove the dough from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Peel and mince the garlic. 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 the olives. Peel, halve and thinly slice the onion. Roughly chop the pea tips. Pick the oregano leaves off the stems; discard the stems.

Make the sauce:
2 Make the sauce:

In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the garlic and as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until fragrant. Add the tomato sauce; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 4 minutes, or until slightly thickened. Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Prepare the dough & add the sauce:
3 Prepare the dough & add the sauce:

Lightly oil a large sheet pan. On a clean, dry work surface, using your hands, gently stretch the dough to a ¼-inch thickness. (If the dough is resistant, let rest for 5 minutes.) Carefully transfer to the prepared sheet pan; rub the dough into the pan to coat the bottom in oil. Evenly spread the sauce onto the dough, leaving a 1-inch border around the edges.

Assemble & bake the pizza:
4 Assemble & bake the pizza:

Evenly top the sauce with the mozzarella cheese, olives, feta cheese and as much of the onion as you’d like (you may have extra onion); season with salt and pepper. Bake, rotating the sheet pan halfway through, 16 to 18 minutes, or until the mozzarella cheese has melted and the crust is golden brown. Remove from the oven and let stand for at least 2 minutes before serving.
