Serves 4


  • 1 recipe Homemade Pizza Dough (see separate recipe)
  • Cornmeal, for sprinkling
  • 6 to 10 thin spring onions, or scallions, sliced into vertical strips
  • Balsamic vinegar, for drizzling
  • 1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 (8-ounce) ball fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced
  • 1 cup finely chopped herbs (a mix of basil, parsley and tarragon)
  • Pinches of red pepper flakes


    Prepare the Homemade Pizza Dough.

    Preheat oven to 450°.

    On a lightly floured, flat surface, divide the dough into 2 balls and roll each into a 10-inch oval shape. Add flour, as needed, to prevent sticking. Place the pizzas on a baking sheet sprinkled with cornmeal.

    On a plate, toss the spring onions with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar. In a small bowl, mix the olive oil with the minced garlic and brush onto the dough. Top the pizza dough with the mozzarella slices and spring-onion strips.

    Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the onions are soft and the pizza crust is golden brown.

    Top the pizzas with the chopped herbs and a few pinches of the red pepper flakes.
