Mixed Greens Salad Pizza

Mixed Greens Salad Pizza


For dough
2/3 cup warm water
1/2 teaspoon dry active yeast
1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
1 teaspoon olive oil plus more for bowl and brushing pizza
1-1/2 cups bread flour plus more for work surface
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

For vinaigrette
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

For crust and salad
1/2 cup coarsely grated Parmesan
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
3-4 ounces mixed greens
1/2 cup halved cherry tomatoes
1 tablespoon minced chives
Shaved Parmesan


In a small bowl, combine the water, yeast, sugar and olive oil. Let stand until foamy, about 5 minutes.

In the bowl of a food processor, pulse the flour and salt. Add the yeast mixture and process until a ball of dough forms. Transfer the dough to an oiled bowl, cover and let rest for 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F with a baking stone inside.

For the vinaigrette, whisk together the balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper.

On a lightly floured work surface, split the dough into two balls. Roll the dough into 10-inch diameter circles.

Transfer the dough to the baking stone. Brush with olive oil. Bake for 7 minutes. Sprinkle the crust with coarsely grated Parmesan and pepper. Continue baking for 3 minutes until the cheese has melted.

Let the crust cool.

In a large bowl, toss the mixed greens with cherry tomatoes and chives. Drizzle with balsamic vinaigrette.

Top the pizzas with salad and finish with shaved Parmesan.
