Serves 6 people
1 recipe pizza dough
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 garlic clove, thinly sliced
¼ cup dry white wine
Pinch of hot red pepper flakes
12 to 18 very small clams, such as Manila, or cockles, scrubbed
¼ cup shredded fresh mozzarella
Fresh oregano leaves for garnish
Roll the dough out into a 10-inch circumference. Lay the dough on a greased sheet tray and cook for about 4 minutes. Remove the dough from the oven.
Combine the oil and garlic in a small pot and cook, stirring, over medium-high heat until the garlic is softened, about 1 minute.
Add the wine, red pepper flakes, and clams, cover and cook until the clams open, 3 to 5 minutes; transfer the clams to a bowl as they open.
Scatter the cheese evenly over the pizza crust, leaving a ½ – inch border. Broil pizza until cheese is bubbly, 6-8 minutes, then arrange the clams on top and sprinkle with the oregano.
Cut into 6 slices and serve.
