Pizza Verdure

I am a fan of  anything spicy, salty and drizzled with balsamic vinegar.  Those combinations would be Pizza Verdure.  Verdure means greenness of growing vegetation.  So, as you must be aware there is no meat on this pizza.  I am okay with that.  Here is my version of this Simple and Delicious Pizza!

Pizza Verdure

2 – tomatoes, sliced thin (I used vine ripened.  You could use whatever you want)
2 servings or 10 Black Olives, sliced
2 servings or 10 green olives, sliced
4-5 Pepperoncini, sliced
1 Tablespoon capers
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 Tablespoon rosemary, chopped (I used fresh, you could use dried)
1-2 Teaspoons dried oregano  a
Balsamic Vinegar
Provolone Cheese, 3-4 slices – sliced into 1 inch strips
Grated Parmesan cheese, 1 cup

Preheat oven to 475 degrees, baking time; 12-15 minutes. (I check the pizza at the halfway point and turn the pizza stone from front to back.) Also, my stone is in the oven while it is preheating.  When I prepare my pizza I use a peel, top with parchment paper, put some flour on parchment paper and using my hands push the dough into a 12 to 14 inch circle (or not so much a circle).  Put on the toppings and then slide that pizza onto the stone.  When you use parchment paper the pizza slides right onto the stone.  🙂

For the Pizza Verdure; Mix olive oil and clove of garlic together.   Use as your base on the pizza.  I use a pastry brush to spread over dough.  Layer the tomatoes, pepperoncini, olives, capers and provolone.  On top of the provolone spread grated Parmesan cheese, rosemary, oregano and drizzle with balsamic vinegar.IMG_4478

All I can say is AWESOME!   Oh, so simple and delicious!!

  1. So creative!
    I just happen to have an open jar of muffaletta spread that needs another purpose.
    I may put a few portabellos on, too!

    Thanks for the awesome inspiration!
