Pizza in Italy is light and minimal. Most people don’t think that you can stick lemon on pizza – you’re wrong! – in fact, it’s delicious.
1 lemon, thinly sliced
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
1 clove garlic
1 small pizza dough
2 shallots, thinly sliced
Salt, to taste
Heat oven to highest setting and stick a cast iron or oven safe pan in the oven to heat.
Bring a small pot of water to a boil and blanch lemons; this will take the bitter bite out of them. Remove after 30 seconds and set aside.
Place olive oil and garlic in a small bowl and microwave for 15-20 seconds until olive oil is infused with garlic flavor.
Carefully remove pan from the oven and season the bottom of the pan with the garlic infused oil.
Place pizza dough in pan (be careful, it’s hot!) and top with lemon, shallots, salt, cheese and remaining oil.
Bake for 10-15 minutes until golden and bubbly.
