Weeknight Dinner: Muffaletta Pizza

*Don't forget my giveaway going on now!  Lee's Olive Salsa is part of the Local Happiness Giveaway...click HERE to enter!*

Tell me this isn't the best idea ever...Muffaletta Pizza!!!  When we first got the basket of Local Happiness products, the only thing to stump me was Lee's Olive Salsa,  As you know, neither John nor I are Southerners - both Yankees through and through so when I read on the side that you should put it on a Muffaletta, I knew exactly what to do.  I didn't want to just make another traditional sandwich.

You know me well enough to know that, right?!  Nope, instead we got right to work on a delicious pizza using the salsa and some tomatoes as a base.  Top it with some delicious meats, two different types of cheeses, and pepperocini (John's fave) and we knew we had ourselves a keeper.  In fact, my mouth is watering just thinking about the possibility of eating it again.

John liked it so much that it is no longer referred to as "Muffaletta" Pizza in our house but "Manaletta" Pizza because apparently "men" will really like this pizza.  At least, that's according to John.  I think women will really like it too, and what better way to pretend you're from the South (for at least a meal or two, right)!  Don't forget you can win this salsa and tons of other products just by heading on over to the giveaway page.

Muffaletta Pizza
Serves:  4 (8 slices)
1 Mom's Easy Pizza Dough (or storebought)
1/2 cup tomatoes, peeled and diced
1 cup Lee's Olive Salsa
2 tablespoons garlic powder
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, grated
4 ounces provolone cheese, thinly sliced
4 ounces ham, thinly sliced and torn into small pieces
2 ounces pepperoni, thinly sliced
1/2 cup pepperocini

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.  Grease a 12-inch pizza pan or a large cookie sheet.  Roll the pizza dough out over the pan.  Meanwhile, combine tomatoes and Lee's Olive Salsa.  Evenly cover the pizza dough with the salsa mixture.  Top evenly with garlic powder.  Then add in layers:  mozzarella, provolone, ham, pepperoni, and pepperocini.  Bake 13-15 minutes, until crust is brown and cheese are melted and bubbly.  Cut into 8 slices and serve immediately.

Until the next time my oven is on...
