Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3/4 pound store-bought pizza dough
  • 3 ounces lightly salted fresh mozzarella, thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 ounces finely grated Pecorino Romano cheese (about 2/3 cup)
  • 3 cups packed brussels sprout leaves (from about 1/2 pound)
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 5 paper-thin lemon slices, cut into half-moons (from 1/2 lemon)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Brush a 12-inch cast-iron skillet with 1 teaspoon oil. Press dough flat in skillet, spreading to edge (if it retracts, let rest 5 minutes before continuing). Brush a 1-inch border around edge with 1 teaspoon oil.

  2. Scatter mozzarella and half the Pecorino evenly over dough, leaving a 1/2-inch border around edge.

  3. Toss brussels sprouts with remaining Pecorino, remaining 2 teaspoons oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Scatter sprout mixture over cheeses, and top with lemon.

  4. Cook over medium-high heat until bottom is golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer to oven, and bake until edges of sprouts start to char, edge of crust is golden, and dough is cooked through, about 10 minutes. Season with pepper.
