Escarole & Cherry-Tomato Pizza


1 small head escarole, torn into 1/2-inch pieces (about 3 cups)
1 to 2 heads Treviso radicchio, thinly sliced (about 2 cups)
1 tablespoon vinegar-packed capers, drained
1/4 teaspoon red-pepper flakes
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
3/4 pound store-bought dough
6 slices provolone
10 cherry tomatoes, halved
Coarse salt


1. Preheat oven to 475 degrees. In a bowl, toss escarole with radicchio, capers, red-pepper flakes, and oil.

2. Form dough (as directed by recipe on pizza dough package) in a 9-by-13-inch rimmed baking sheet. Arrange cheese slices side-by-side to cover dough, then top evenly with escarole mixture. Bake until cooked through and crust is golden on edges and bottom, about 22 minutes.

3. Using a metal spatula, slide pie onto a cutting board. Scatter cherry tomatoes on top, squeezing each to release a bit of juice onto pie. Sprinkle with salt. Slice into 6 pieces and serve.
