- 1 tsp Olive oil
- 1/2 lb of Classic homemade pizza dough

An antipasto generally consists of cheeses, peppers tomatoes presented with bread. To elevate this dish, this recipe will spread the delicious ingredients on a pizza base.
This pizza can be baked, grilled, or cooked on the stove. When making on the stove, it can be cooked on a pan on low heat for 20 minutes. It is crucial to seal the lid so that the cheese melts. If you would like to experiment with grilling, create an indirect medium heat surface, then place the pizza after preheating the grill at 450°. It will take about 30 minutes to cook since the heat is indirect. Baking in the oven is the fastest method and will give the pizza more crust and a more beautiful color.
On the other hand, preparing on the pan is more convenient and easier and helps better with observing the cooking progress. Grilling gives the pizza a more natural, smokier, and tastier taste. It’s also convenient when cooking outside or camping.
When it comes to the ingredients, you can add any antipasto ingredients to the dough. Cooking is about experimenting and having fun with ingredients such as mushrooms, anchovies, and artichoke hearts. It’s best to use what’s available and what suits your taste.

Preheat the oven at 450°
Oil an oven tray.
Shape the dough with a pin roll or your hands into a circle about 15 inches in diameter and between ¼ inch and 1/8 inch in thickness.
With a fork, make holes in the dough to release air bubbles.
In a food processor, prepare the sun-dried tomatoes until a puree is obtained.
Pour the puree on the dough, leaving the edges clear.
Place the cheese slices on the tomato puree then sprinkle the olives, pepperoncini, and Parmigiano.
Bake for about 15 minutes or until the dough became golden brown.
