1 9-by-13-inch pie

Instead of peeling and seeding fresh tomatoes, you can also use three whole peeled tomatoes from a 14-ounce can.


  • 1/3 recipe Basic Pizza Dough, or 3/4 pound store-bought dough

  • 2 large red tomatoes, blanched, peeled, seeded, and coarsely pureed in a food processor (about ¾ cup)

  • 12 ⅛ -inch-thick rounds delicata squash, seeded

  • 6 small brussels sprouts, halved

  • Extra-virgin olive oil

  • 12 thin slices soppressata

  • Coarse salt


  1. Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Form dough (as directed in Basic Pizza Dough recipe) in a 9-by-13-inch rimmed baking sheet. Spread tomato sauce evenly over dough. In a large bowl, toss squash and brussels sprouts with oil. Arrange squash in 4 rows of 3. Place a soppressata slice in center of each squash round, then top with a brussels-sprout half. Sprinkle with salt.

  2. Bake until cooked through and crust is golden on edges and bottom, about 24 minutes.

  3. Using a metal spatula, slide pie onto a cutting board. Slice into 6 pieces and serve.
