Enjoy this Sicilian-inspired pizza made with escarole, anchovies and Kalamata olives.


  • 1 16-ounce Italian bread shell (Boboli)
  • 2-1/2 plum tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1 large yellow or red tomato, thinly sliced
  • 4 ounces fresh mozzarella or buffalo mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup halved, pitted kalamata olives
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped escarole or curly endive
  • 1/4 cup shredded Pecorino Romano or Parmesan cheese (1 ounce)
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  1. Prepare the oven broiler and place a piece of aluminum foil on a baking sheet, bringing up the sides of the foil and turning edges up to create a border so pizza juices cannot run off the sheet.
  2. Place the bread shell on the prepared aluminum and then top with the tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, and olives.
  3. Drizzle the pizza with oil and then place in the oven and grill for 6 minutes, then remove and top with the escarole. Cook for an additional 2 minutes and then remove the pizza, sprinkle with the cheese and a few grinds of black pepper. Serve hot.
