Tonight, we try our take on this amazingly flavorful pizza pie inspired by my recent visit to Vesta in Redwood City, California1. Of course, they cook in a wood oven but we can do a pretty good job at home.
The key to a good pizza is the dough and the marinara sauce. For now, we are using some store-bought (frozen) dough and marinara for convenience. Although, I have a recipe for homemade Marinara that will take this to another planet! And, while we are going to ensure that our pie has the appropriate amount of heat and spice, you can adjust the recipe as necessary to reduce the amount of heat. Let’s get started.
