Nana’s Pizza Bianca

My grandmother was an excellent cook, baker, wizard in the kitchen. Her Italian background didn’t hurt, either. She made the simplest things seem fit for royalty. That was her style; pure and simple.

Her basic bread dough produced a lineup of baked goods, pizzas, rolls that were award-winning and stellar quality. And she and we (her family) had no clue, we just ate and enjoyed whatever she whipped up for us.

Lately, I’ve been craving her “pizza bianca” (white pizza) which is really more like a foccacia.

I’ve made it twice in the past week. Here is an easy version of the recipe:

Unroll one tube of Pillsbury refridgerated pizza dough. Place on a well greased pizza pan with olive oil. Place about 1/2 cup of pitted black cured Italian olives on the dough pressing them into the dough. Sprinkle with 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese, parmesean cheese, salt and pepper to taste, dried oregano and some red pepper flakes (optional). Drizzle with some olive oil and bake in 375 degree oven for 12 to 15 minutes. Good hot, better at room temp. Enjoy!!
