Ingredients

  • 1 recipe basic pizza bread (follow instructions for 1 large pizza, but form dough into large rectangle)
  • 2 cups basic tomato sauce (or 2 cups commercial tomato sauce)
  • 1 cup tiny genovese onions
  • 15 salt packed anchovy fillets, soaked overnight in milk
  • 1 medium onion, sliced paper thin
  • 1/2 cup capers, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
BASIC TOMATO SAUCE
  • 1 Spanish onion, cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 3 ounces virgin olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons fresh thyme (or 2 tablespoons dried)
  • 1/2 medium carrot, finely shredded
  • 2 28-ounce cans of tomatoes, crushed and mixed well with their juices
  • Salt, to taste

Directions

Preheat oven to 415 degrees F.

Lightly oil a large (16 by 30-inch) cookie sheet, or 2 smaller (11 by 17-inch) sheets.

Using a rolling pin or your hands, flatten dough to fit in your cookie sheet. Using finger tips, poke indentations across entire surface. Spread a thin layer of tomato sauce over surface. Sprinkle with olives. Lay anchovy fillets out into a pattern. Sprinkle with onions, capers, and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil. Place in oven and bake 15 to 20 minutes, until golden brown on bottom. Remove and serve hot or cold.

BASIC TOMATO SAUCE

Saute the onion and garlic in the olive oil over medium heat until translucent, but not brown (about 10 minutes). Add the thyme and carrot and cook 5 minutes more. Add the tomatoes. Bring to a boil, lower the heat to just bubbling, stirring occasionally for 30 minutes. Season with salt to taste. Serve immediately, or set aside for further use. The sauce may be refrigerated for up to one week or frozen for up to 6 months.
