Tonight's meal celebrates the bright, briny flavors of classic southern Italian cooking. Aromatics like garlic, capers and red chile flakes liven up our tomato-based stew, which gets hearty bites from fingerling potatoes and cod. On the side, we're making "pizza bianca," or white pizza: simply pizza dough baked with a drizzle of olive oil for crusty, crispy results—perfect for soaking up the rich stew.

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut the potatoes into 1/2-inch-thick rounds. Peel and thinly slice the shallot. Peel and roughly chop the garlic. Place the tomatoes in a bowl; gently break apart with your hands. Pat the cod dry with paper towels. Cut each fillet into 6 equal-sized pieces; transfer to a medium bowl. Thoroughly wash your hands, knife and cutting board immediately after handling the cod.
