Cooking Time for the Recipe: 30mins

Ingredients:

  • Pre-made pizza dough, 12oz (store-bought works)
  • Olive Oil, 1Tbsp
  • Red pepper flakes (optional but recommended)
  • Cornmeal
  • Salt
  • 1 clove of garlic (finely minced)
  • 4oz ramps
  • 3-4oz Mozzarella Cheese
  • 1/3rd – ½ c. tomato puree, either from fresh or canned tomatoes
  • 1/4th c. pecorino Romano cheese
  • Red wine vinegar (optional)
  • Pinch of sugar (optional)

Directions:

  1. Trim the ramps and remove the hairy ends of it, separating the bulbs or stems from the leafy section.
  2. Chop the leafier side into ½-in thick ribbons; keep separately. Chop stems finely into thin slices.
  3. Bring out a heavy skillet and heat some olive oil. Add pepper flakes and sliced ramp bulbs.
  4. Next, you’ll have to sauté the ramps slightly until slightly translucent but retaining its crispness, for about 4-5 minutes, before adding the leafier end of the ramp.
  5. As soon as the leaves look like they’re wilting, take off the heat. It is essential to season with a little salt at this step – but remember to only add a pinch.
  6. Preheat your oven to its highest temperature setting.
  7. A little cornmeal sprinkled onto your pizza stone or baking sheet (pan) helps keep your pizza from sticking (you may use flour at this step, but cornmeal provides a crunchier texture to the crust).
  8. Next, create a thin round or rectangular shape of about 11-12 inches in size by stretching the dough, and place it on a pizza stone/sheet.
  9. Take the pureed tomatoes (or puree them if you have the whole variety), add your seasonings (salt and pepper flakes), the minced or crushed garlic, and a drop of vinegar here or a dash of sugar there if you feel like it.
  10. Spread your homemade pizza sauce thinly over the stretched dough. (Recommended: 1/3rd-1/4th c. only. freeze the rest if required.)
  11. Assemble the pizza, adding the thinly sliced mozzarella. Add the prepared ramps, drizzle on a little more olive oil and add seasonings.
  12. Bake for about 10-12 minutes until the crust is golden all over, and the cheese is bubbling (or slightly burnt)!
  13. Remove immediately, sprinkling a generous amount of Romano cheese on top.
