12 oz whole-wheat pizza dough (recipe follows) or other prepared dough
1 tsp plus 2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1 ½ cup grated fontina or monterey jack cheese
1 ½ cup diced tomatoes (2 medium)
1 cup diced sweet onion, such as Vidalia (1 medium)
2 Tbsp minced seeded jalapeno pepper (1 pepper)
2 oz sliced pastrami, diced (1/2 cup), optional
freshly ground pepper to taste
⅓ cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves, torn
1. Place a pizza stone or inverted baking sheet on the lowest oven rack; preheat oven to 500° F or highest setting. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray and dust with cornmeal.
2. Prepare Whole-Wheat Pizza Dough, if using.
3. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough into a 15-by-10-inch oval. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet. Turn edges under to make a slight rim. Brush the rim with 1 teaspoon oil.
4. Sprinkle cheese over the crust, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Top with tomatoes, onion, jalapeno and pastrami, if using. Season with pepper. Drizzle with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil.
5. Place the baking sheet on the heated pizza stone (or baking sheet) and bake the pizza until the bottom is crisp and golden, 10 to 14 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley and serve immediately.
To bake this recipe directly on a pizza stone, make two 14-by-7-inch oval pizzas.
