  • Preheat an oven to 500°F, and set an oven rack in the lowest possible position. Lightly coat a pizza pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Stretch pizza dough into a round large enough to fit the pizza pan. Very lightly drizzle the dough with olive oil, using your hands to evenly spread the oil around. Sprinkle dough with a small pinch of kosher salt. Top pizza evenly with grated mozzarella cheese, then spread the sauce over the cheese. It may seem like it’s not enough sauce but trust me, it is. Season with a sprinkling of kosher salt. Top evenly with fresh mozzarella and slices of salami. Finish with a dusting of grated Parmesan cheese and several turns of black pepper.
  • Transfer pizza to the oven on the lowest rack and cook until the crust is golden brown (bottom and crust) and the cheese is nice and bubbly (9 – 11 minutes).
  • To serve, dab pesto evenly around the surface of the pizza. Cut into 8 slices and enjoy immediately!
