Pizza Part 13: Tuscan Salami & Roasted Veggie Pizza

You know, I don’t know why, but when a pizza place comes out with a new pizza, I can’t help but try to copycat it here at home. I know it definitely costs me less to make it at home than to buy it, but I buy new ones at least once to try it and decided what’s in it. This is a pizza that Domino’s came out with and it looked so interesting. Sometimes it seems like so many different tastes can’t possibly work together, but this one definitely pulls it off well. And now, from my taste buds to creating a copycat for this, I present you with Tuscan Salami & Roasted Veggie Pizza.

So, let’s get cooking!

In a small saucepan, melt the butter. Stir in the flour and cook for a minute, until bubbly.

Slowly pour in the milk, whisking continuously, until thickened. Mix in the parmesan cheese, garlic powder, and black pepper. Set aside off the heat to cool.

Slice the onion and pepper, then cut the slices into thirds, so the pieces are about an inch long.

Turn on the broiler. On a sheet pan, coat the red pepper with a little oil and set under the broiler to roast, about 7-8 minutes or so, stirring and flipping 2 or 3 times during the cooking.

While the peppers are roasting, pinch the stems off the baby spinach leaves.

Spread the pizza dough in the greased pan of your choice (I have a round one and then my rectangle ones). Evenly spread the garlic parmesan sauce on the dough. Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese on top.

Cut the slices of salami into quarters and distribute evenly throughout the pizza. Add on the baby spinach.

Place the roasted red peppers on, and then the Vidalia onion.

Finally, toss on the banana peppers, as much as you’d like. Sprinkle oregano over all.

Bake at 425° for 18 minutes. Enjoy! ~TMMF
