Yield:
one 12-inch pizza
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons minced peeled ginger
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • Kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup tomato puree
  • 1 pound pizza dough (or one 10-to-12-inch prepared crust)
  • All-purpose flour, for dusting
  • Cornmeal, for dusting
  • 1 cup shredded cheese blend (mozzarella, provolone, cheddar and/or parmesan)
  • 1/2 cup sliced pepperoni
  • 1/2 cup chopped pineapple
  • 1 fresh red chile pepper, thinly sliced
  • Fresh mint and Sriracha (hot Asian chili sauce), for topping
Directions
  • Put a pizza stone or upside-down baking sheet in the oven; preheat to 500 degrees F.

  • Pulse the garlic, ginger, canola oil and a pinch of salt in a food processor until smooth. Mix 1 teaspoon of the garlic-ginger paste with the tomato puree.

  • Stretch the pizza dough into a 12-inch round on a floured surface. Put on a cornmeal-dusted pizza peel or upside-down baking sheet; slide onto the hot pizza stone or baking sheet and cook 5 minutes. (If you're using a prepared crust, skip this step.)

  • Slide the crust back onto the peel. Spread with the tomato puree, then top with the cheese, pepperoni, pineapple and chile pepper.

  • Return to the oven and bake until the cheese melts, 8 to 10 more minutes. Remove from the oven and let sit 5 minutes, then top with mint and Sriracha.
