Description

This might be my new favorite.

Ingredients

  • 1  Batch Of Your Favorite Pizza Dough, To Be Hand Tossed To About 16 Inch Size
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 clove Garlic, Minced
  • 1 cup Thinly Shaved Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 whole Jalapeno Pepper, Seeds Removed, Thinly Sliced
  • ½ cups Green Olives With Pimento, Sliced In Half
  • ½ cups Blue Cheese Crumbles
  • ½ cups Shredded Mozzarella Cheese

Preparation

As you can tell, this pizza does not use any red sauce nor any olive oil on top of the pizza. This pizza stands out on its own and does not require any type of sauce, trust me.

Start by preheating your oven to 475 F. Place a large circular baking sheet or pizza pan into the oven to preheat while you make your pizza.

Lightly flour your dough ball, then begin pressing it out to the shape and size of your pizza pan with your fingers. Flip and repeat. Use a rolling pin if you desire to get the dough working, then begin to toss it. If desired, check out the related blog link for a video of how to toss pizza dough. It’s fun, and the kids love seeing it thrown into the air.

Once your dough is ready, and you have your desired thickness, remove the pizza pan out of the oven with your kitchen mitts. The pan will be really hot, so be ready to place it onto a wood cutting board or a potholder.

Drizzle the olive oil into the pizza pan and tilt the pan to make sure you get full coverage before placing your dough onto it. I normally use a pizza stone, however I wanted to experiment with using the oiled pan. In all honesty, I think the oiled pan worked really well and had a nice crispness to the crust. I think my wife agreed.

Carefully place the dough onto the pan, keeping in mind it is really hot, and arrange the dough so that it fits the pan. Now for the toppings.

Scatter the garlic on top of the pizza, then the shaved Parmesan cheese. I got those nice ribbons my using my microplane to shave the cheese. Top with the fresh jalapeno peppers, then the olives, then the blue cheese, and then finish with the small amount of mozzarella cheese.

Place the pan into the oven and cook for about 18-24 minutes, or until the cheese is golden. Remove from the oven, slice and serve.

This olive and blue cheese pizza is unlike any other. You get an awesome sharpness from the Parmesan and blue cheese, and this amazing brininess from the olives. When combined with the spicy garlic and jalapeno peppers, well, all I can say is have someone standing by to pull you away from the pizza. If you are looking to make something unique and different, give this pizza a try. I hope you enjoy.

I happened to have a lot of ripe hot peppers and everything else required to make this pizza. It was delicious – a quite different pizza. We loved it!
