4.Roll out pizza dough on lightly floured pizza stone or pan. Top with a tiny bit of olive oil, salt (opt.) and red pepper flakes (can also bake plain, which is great too). Bake for 5 minutes.

SERVING

Notes
Prep time doesn’t include making the pizza dough (which can be made ahead of time and frozen).
Third time I made this, I omitted the red pepper flakes and onions, and added mozzarella. It was best this way!
Great green salad: lettuce, sliced pear (or apple), nuts (walnuts or almonds). Dressing: whisk together some balsamic vinegar with olive oil and honey.
