reuben pizza

This pizza combines all of the great flavors of a reuben sandwich in a pizza. You can also add in some sauerkraut on top as well if you like. If at all possible, use a pizza stone and a pizza peel when making pizza. You must preheat the pizza stone in the oven first for best results. Use the pizza peel for safe transfer of the uncooked pizza to the stone. Both are available in most kitchen shops and are key to making good pizza.

Flour, for dusting

1/2 small pizza dough, about 5 ounces

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided

Caraway seeds, for dusting
1-2 tablespoons Thousand Island dressing, plus extra for dipping
1/4 cup chopped corned beef brisket
2-3 slices swiss cheese
Salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper

Cornmeal, for dusting

1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Place pizza stone in oven.

2. To prepare pizza dough, lightly flour a pizza peel and gently stretch dough into a circle, making sure not to get dough too thin. Brush 1 tablespoon oil over pizza dough, leaving a 1-inch border around edges.

3. Gently dust cornmeal onto hot pizza stone. Transfer dough to pizza stone and cook for about 10 minutes, until dough is just lightly browned.

4. Carefully transfer dough back to pizza peel and place on counter. Brush crust of pizza with remaining 1 tablespoon oil and sprinkle with just enough caraway seeds to lightly coat. Spread enough dressing over center of dough to coat. Top with corned beef, spreading evenly over top of dressing, followed by swiss cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Return dough back to hot pizza stone and cook until cheese is melted, about 5 minutes. Remove pizza and cut into wedges. Serve with additional dressing for dipping.

Serves 1.
