Sauceless Pizza

This is a delicious alternative to normal pizza. It takes some work to make but it is worth it for sure!

2 pounds of fresh bread dough (I use 2 boxes of Jiffy Pizza Crust mix)
1/4 pound prociutto ham
1/4 pound genoa salami
1/4 pound pepperoni (from deli or prepackaged)
1 triangle Fontina cheese
2 cups mozarella
1/2 to 1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/4 to 1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
1 teaspoon italian seasoning
Crushed red pepper to taste

Make pizza crust according to directions on box. Make each box separately.

Toss all of the ingredients (all chopped as you prefer and cheeses shredded) in a large bowl. Let sit for 1/2 hour on counter.

Spray pan with nonstick cooking spray and sprinkle with cornmeal (do not use flour!) --or, if using a pizza stone, just sprinkle with cornmeal. Roll out 1 lb of pizza dough large enough to cover pizza pan (12 to 14 inches) and place on cornmeal. Put all of the ingredients from large bowl onto bottom piece of dough and roll out second 1 lb of dough. Cover the ingredients with the second piece of dough and pinch the edges of dough together to keep the filling from leaking out while cooking. Cut a few slits in the top layer of dough and brush with olive oil allowing some to seep into slits. Trim any extra dough around edges of pizza.

Bake in 350 degree oven for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown.
