Pizza alla Puttanesca
Probably shouldn’t translate from the Italian on this family website – nevertheless a few years ago I caught Nadia G’s Spaghetti a la Puttanesca episode and realized that this pizza, a family favorite, had evolved to have a lot of those same ingredients. So I finally have a name for it.
This summer, our discovery of anchovy stuffed olives turned out to really catapult this pizza to one that we make every time we fire up the oven. We cut the olives just in half and they impart just the perfect amount salty fishy anchovy umami to the pie. For this pizza I used a a crushed tomato sauce, Scaramoza cheese chopped into cubes, a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese, pepperoni, anchovy stuffed olives, and marinated artichoke hearts.
Here it is ready for the oven:
