Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: Italian
Serves: 4-6
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • ½ tsp thyme
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • ¼ tsp ground piri-piri chilies or cayenne pepper
  • ½ tsp salt
  • Dash ground black pepper
  • 1 15 oz can tomato sauce
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Pizza Dough (I use Trader Joe's or you can make your own)
  • 1 cup pizza sauce (above)
  • ½ cup diced onions
  • 1½ cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • Cornmeal
  1. In a medium sized bowl, mix together sauce ingredients, set aside. For best results, make this a few hours in advance (up to overnight) to let the flavors blend.
  1. Preheat oven and pizza stone 450F.
  2. Roll out the pizza dough into about a 12-inch round on a lightly floured board.
  3. Spread a handful of cornmeal on a pizza peel, and transfer the dough to the paddle.
  4. Spread 1 cup of the pizza sauce evenly over the dough. Sprinkle the diced onions over that, then top with the Mozzarella.
  5. Transfer the pizza to the pizza stone, and bake 12-15 minutes until the edges and top start to brown and the cheese is bubbly.
  6. Cut into wedges and serve immediately.
