step-by-step

 

INSTRUCTIONS

 

 
Prepare & make the sauce

1. Prepare & make the sauce

Remove the dough and honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Preheat the oven to 475°F. Place the tomatoes in a bowl; gently break apart with your hands. Peel 1 clove of garlic; using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate into a paste. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the tomatoes and garlic paste; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 4 to 5 minutes, or until slightly thickened. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. 

Assemble the pizza

2. Assemble the pizza

Lightly oil a sheet pan. Using your hands, gently stretch the dough to about 1/4-inch thickness. Carefully center the dough on the sheet pan. Shape towards the edges of the pan, maintaining an even thickness (if the dough is resistant, let rest 5 minutes). Leaving a 1-inch border around the edges, evenly top the prepared dough with the saucemozzarella (tearing into small pieces before adding), and fontina. Season with salt and pepper.

Prepare & roast the cauliflower

3.Prepare & roast the cauliflower

Wash and dry the cauliflower. Remove the leaves; cut lengthwise through the stem into 1-inch-thick steaks (keeping them as intact as possible). Place on a separate sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; carefully turn to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 25 to 27 minutes, or until lightly browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

Bake the pizza

4. Bake the pizza

Meanwhile, bake the pizza, rotating the sheet pan halfway through, 20 to 22 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the crust is golden brown. Remove from the oven and let stand at least 2 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a bowl, whisk together the honey (kneading the packet before opening), 1 teaspoon of warm water, and as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Evenly top the baked pizza with the pesto. Carefully transfer to a cutting board and cut into equal-sized pieces. Serve the finished pizza with the roasted cauliflower on the side.
