Pepperoni Pizza with Farmer's Greens

50 Mins

Prep Time: 50 minutes

Serves 2


  • 1 lb. Tomatoes
  • 2 cloves Garlic, crushed
  • 1 Pizza Dough, thoroughly defrosted
  • 8 oz. Mozzarella, sliced thinly
  • 4 oz. Pepperoni, sliced thinly
  • 2 oz. Farmers Salad Mix or your favorite baby greens
  • 4 Tbsp. Olive Oil
  • Olive Oil or Cornmeal
  • Flour for dusting
  • 1 Tbsp. White Vinegar
  • Salt and Pepper

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over a high flame. Score a small X into the bottom of each tomato and place in the boiling water. Blanch for 1 minute. Remove the tomatoes with a slotted spoon and place them in a large bowl filled with ice water until cool to the touch. Gently peel with a small knife, starting at the X. Puree the peeled tomatoes in a blender or food processor until smooth. Alternately, smash with a potato masher for a chunkier sauce.

Heat the olive oil in a sauté pan over a medium flame until hot. Add the garlic and stir until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the tomatoes and stir. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a boil and and then reduce to a simmer, until slightly thickened, about 20 minutes. Set aside until cool.

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Coat a baking sheet or pizza pan with a thin layer of olive oil or a dusting of cornmeal. On a clean working surface dusted with flour, gently stretch the pizza to a 12" circle. Place the dough into the pan. Spoon half a cup tomato sauce onto the dough and spread evenly, leaving room for a crust. Top with the mozzarella and pepperoni slices. Place in the oven until the cheese is melted and the crust is golden brown, about 8-10 minutes.

In a mixing bowl, toss together the farmers mix with the vinegar and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cut the pizza into 4 and top with the dressed greens.
