Procedures:The food of Liguria is representative of the area’s unique climate and uses many ingredients that are more common to Southern-Italian cuisine. Liguria is located closer to France than it is to Naples, but the abundant use of garlic, olive oil instead of butter or lard and tomatoes are all reminiscent of cooking from the south.
Place pizza stone the oven and preheat oven to 475°F. Stone needs to heat in the oven for ½ hour to 1 hour before baking pizza.
In a measuring cup stir together milk and yeast until yeast is dissolved and set aside. In a large bowl whisk together flour and salt and add yeast mixture, stirring until a soft dough forms.
On a lightly floured surface knead dough until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes. Let dough rest for 1 hour.
While dough is resting, in a large skillet heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium high heat and saute onions and anchovies until they are lightly caramelized, about 12-15 minutes.
Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface with a floured rolling pin, stretching corners with your hands to form a 16x13 inch rectangle. (Dough will be easier to roll out as it warms.) Transfer to a floured pizza peel and top with the onion and anchovy mixture, peeled cherry tomatoes, olives, basil, oregano and garlic, and drizzle with a few drops of olive oil. Bake pizza 10-12 minutes, or until dough is crisp and browned, and transfer with pizza peel to a cutting board.
