Anchovy Pizza with Red Onions, Parm, and Basil
1 (1-pound) ball store bought pizza dough, room temperature for at least 1 hour
All purpose flour, for dusting
1/4 cup homemade or store bought marinara sauce
1/4 medium red onion, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon red chili flakes
1 teaspoon dried oregano
Freshly grated Parmesan, for serving
Fresh basil, for serving
Freshly ground black pepper, for serving
Preheat oven to 500F and line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
On a clean work surface, work dough into a 10-12 inch circle that’s slightly thicker around the diameter, flouring the surface, dough, and your hands as needed. If the dough contracts into a smaller circle, let it rest for 15 minutes before continuing.
Transfer dough to prepared sheet pan and prick all over with a fork. Spread marinara, leaving a 1-inch border. Top with red onions, anchovies, chili flakes, and oregano. Drizzle the pizza with the residual oil from the anchovies. Bake until crust is puffed and golden brown, 9-12 minutes, rotating half way through.
Remove from oven and top with grated Parmesan, basil, and black pepper. Use a pizza wheel to cut into 8 slices and serve immediately.
