Now that you probably have a sourdough starter and have baked dozens of different types of bread, pizza dough must seem like a breeze. Make a batch, keep it in the fridge or the freezer (depending on when you think you'll need it), and you can make a customized pizza whenever you want. To make it healthier, try this recipe from Jess Emin, who uses turkey and chipotle for a dressed up version of Hawaiian pizza.

1/2 cup diced
2 turkey franks, sliced
1 batch pizza dough, enough for 16-inch pizza
1 8-oz. can pizza sauce
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/3 cup sliced red onion
2 jalapeño peppers, sliced
1/4 cup chipotle barbecue sauce
2 to 3 tbsp chopped parsley
salt, to taste

Preheat oven to 550 F (or the oven’s highest temperature).

In a large frying pan over high heat, saute pineapple and turkey franks until turkey franks are browned on both sides and pineapple is caramelized and browned. Remove from heat.

Flour a 9" x 13" sheet pan, and stretch the dough to the edges. Spread pizza sauce almost to the edges of the dough, and cover evenly with mozzarella. Layer the onions, jalapeño, pineapple and turkey franks slices on the pie.

Place in the oven for 7 to 8 minutes or until the crust has bubbled and become golden with some char marks. To get even better crispy crust, finish with 2 minutes under the broiler.

Once the pizza is out of the oven, drizzle with barbecue sauce, and sprinkle with parsley and salt.

Serve immediately.
