Puttanesca Pizza

Spicy Puttanesca Meat Lover’s Pizza

IMGP8062This is one of the best pizzas I’ve ever made.

I did it with the help of these three gems sent to me by OXO

Their Non Stick Pro Pizza Pan (15″)
11159900 1Complete Grate & Slice Set
grate and slice

and 4″ Pizza Wheel for Nonstick Pans (I’m SO in love with this thing)
The pizza wheel may not look very sharp because it’s made of durable plastic, but it’s actually the best pizza wheel I own now. It’s surprisingly sharp with its tapered edge. The Grate & Slice set is phenomenal. I’ve used it so many times I can’t keep it out of the dishwasher. I easily sliced through two big jalapeno peppers in mere seconds with this thing. It has both coarse and medium grating options, can be placed over a bowl or on top of the lid that doubles as a container for storing and measuring. I’m in love.

The pizza pan is definitely nonstick, and very easy to clean.

Now, onto the pizza.Spicy Puttanesca Meat Lover's PizzaI added “Puttanesca” to the name because I included two different olives in the toppings, although Puttanesca typically refers to a tomato sauce made with olives, capers and anchovies. I used three cheeses – ricotta, Muenster and sharp cheddar.

Keep in mind that I used a little less than half of the dough recipe, and pushed it out pretty thin. Feel free to use as much of the dough and make it as thick as you like.
