Mortadella Pizza

Tonight, my mother and I made mortadella pizza from the Rustic Italian cookbook. It has a savory pistachio sauce that is dribbled on top. A long time ago there used to be a restaurant called JP Bistro in Minneapolis and they had a pizza with bacon, pistachios and fontina cheese. I used to eat that pizza every time I went to that restaurant and this mortadella pizza really reminded me of it.

  • 1 pizza dough recipe (recipe is in "cooking index") 
  • 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese grated 
  • 1/2 cup of fresh mozzarella 
  • 2 ounces of mortadella (thinly sliced) 
  • 3/4 cup of olive oil
  • 1/2 cup of pistachios (grounded) 
  • Make the pizza dough 
  • Add the mortadella, mozzarella and then parmesan cheese 
  • Grind the pistachios in a grinder and add them to the olive oil. 
  • Bake the pizza at 500 degrees for 12-13 minutes. 
  •  Add the sauce lightly over the pizza. You will not need to use all of it. 
Total calories: 2777 for two pizzas cut into fourths. Each fourth should be about 350 if you use all of the oil.
