Puttanesca Pizza

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, 2 turns of the pan
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 tablespoons anchovy paste or 6 fillets flat anchovies
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 (28-ounce) can fire roasted diced tomatoes
1/2 cup chopped pitted good quality black olives
Handful flat-leaf parsley, chopped
1 prepared thin crust pizza shell (recommended: Boboli)
3/4 pound very thinly sliced fresh or fresh smoked mozzarella

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Heat a medium skillet over medium heat. Add extra-virgin olive oil,
garlic, anchovy paste and red pepper flakes. When anchovies (if whole)
melt or garlic is tender, about 2 minutes, add tomatoes and olives.
Simmer sauce 3 to 4 minutes. Top the pizza with sauce and the sliced
cheese. Bake until pizza until cheese melts and crust is crisp, 10
minutes. Cut and serve.
