The first time my daughter had pizza, she was probably between 12 and 18 months old.  She was at a birthday party, and immediately discovered her love of pizza.  I think she ate 4 pieces of pizza that day.  And I think I ate 2.  Ever since, she pretty much always out-eats me when it comes to pizza.  Whenever you ask her what she wants to eat, she will almost always say pizza.

That being said, until recently, we haven’t had pizza very often.  We love ordering delivery, but don’t do it very often because it is so expensive.  And whenever I would try to make it at home, it would be good, but nothing close to the delivery pizza that we love so much.  And it always seemed like such a hassle.  Until I discovered this pizza crust recipe.  I’m not kidding – we have pizza almost on a weekly basis now.  This dough is so easy to throw together, and with the dough made ahead of time, it is seriously faster to make pizza than it is to order out.

We actually ordered pizza last weekend for the first time in months.  And after we ate, I honestly thought to myself that I like my homemade pizza better now than the delivery!

But this post is not really about the dough.  This pizza was seriously delicious.  I actually made  this pizza quite awhile back, not to blog about, but just for dinner.  I posted a picture of it on Instagram, and so many people commented on it that I knew I would need to make it again so that I could photograph it and share it with all of you.  Because I could eat this whole pizza myself.  I’m always a sucker for the salty flavors, but you throw them on top of a pizza, and I’m in pizza heaven!  And this pizza goes to prove that you don’t need a heavy sauce to make a good pizza.  This is simply cheese and toppings, and I seriously wouldn’t change a thing.  Not a thing!

Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Fan of antipasto? This pizza is inspired by the traditional Italian first course.
Serves: 4 servings
  • Pizza dough for 1 pizza (This is my very, very favorite!)
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup diced salami
  • 1 cup roasted red peppers, sliced
  • ½ cup pitted and halved green olives (I used olives with pimiento)
  • ¼ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  1. Place a pizza stone in the oven and preheat to 450F for 30 minutes.
  2. Prepare and roll out your pizza dough. Top with the mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle on the salami, red peppers and olives. Top with the parmesan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the dough is cooked and browned and the cheese is melted, 10-12 minutes.

    I could eat pizza every single FREAKING day of my life. And I will.

    My husband loves pizza, so we eat it often, especially homemade! And these toppings are right up my alley. Well done, Deborah!

  5. Shawnda says:

    I love the toppings! We are in the middle of a homemade pizza binge, ourselves 🙂

  6. I love pizza too! This past weekend, J and I went to lunch with our friends and ordered pizza and that following evening, we had dinner with friends and we ordered pizza! So good! And I love that this is an anti-pasto one because when we were at the dinner w/friends, J kept pushing for an antipasto platter but I didn’t want it lol, so this would be a great way to combine the two 😉

  7. We have homemade pizza night every couple of weeks and this would be perfect to add to the rotation! And I think I must try that pizza dough recipe with such great reviews!

  8. Chels R. says:

    Mmm, That looks really good! I always prefer our homemade pizza’s to delivery, unless it’s Papa Murphy’s take and bake- their pizza is addicting!

  9. Loving the big roasted red peppers on top!

  10. Yum, I’d love a slice or two for lunch! Roasted red peppers are one of my favorite things.

    Come to think of it, I don’t know if I’ve ever eaten a pizza without sauce. I’ve had traditional pizzas, white pizzas and pesto pizzas, but never an antipasto pizza. I’m definitely intrigued! I mean what’s not to love about pizza! 🙂

  12. looks tasty! antipasta is one of my favorite parts of a meal!

  13. Karly says:

  16. That looks SO good, Deb! I make an antipasto salad for my husband all the time. He would love this pizza! (And so would everyone else.)

    Not gonna lie…I never order pizza anymore. Even though I live in NYC – pizza capital of the world. But with homemade pizza THIS good…who needs takeout?
