This healthy recipe for Nicoise Pizza features olives, red peppers and Gruyere cheese.
Yield: 6 Servings
- 1 pound fresh or frozen bread or pizza dough, thawed according to package directions
- 2 cups thinly sliced roasted red peppers
- ½ cup pitted kalamata olives, sliced into thin rounds
- 1 cup shredded Gruyère or Swiss cheese
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
A twist on the classic French salad that also boasts tuna, green beans, and hard-boiled eggs. This recipe leaves those items off the pizza, but you can certainly add them after the pizza is cooked. What follows is a unique combination of flavors that works really well on pizza dough.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Roll the dough out into a large circle or rectangle about ¼ inch thick. Transfer the dough to a pizza pan or baking sheet.
Top with the peppers, olives, cheese, and oregano. Bake for 15 minutes, until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is bubbly.
