There are so many things you can do with a good pizza crust. I have to admit that there is this amazing little Italian deli a few miles from my house that sells pizza dough, and I sometimes stop in on the way home and buy a bag or two to make dinner. But it is easy to make your own crust, too. The fun part of pizza making is getting creative with toppings, using whatever we have in the house. We have been putting hummus on our pizza crust for quite some time. On top of the hummus, you can put any greens you have. Sometimes I use watercress or baby spinach for the kids because they are milder, though I love to use fresh spring baby arugula. The sautéed mushrooms add a great texture and pop of flavor.
Small, knobby fingerling potatoes have a thin, delicate skin, so there’s no need to peel them. If you can’t find fingerlings, substitute with baby potatoes instead. Be sure to remove the dough from the fridge about 30 minutes ahead; this makes it much easier to handle. Don’t worry if it seems like there’s a lot of radicchio; it shrivels as the pizza bakes.
