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.
