Pizza with salami, green olives and red onions

This was definitely a "clean out the fridge" pizza, although I will admit that I purchased fresh mozzarella specifically for this purpose. I started with my favorite pizza dough (from Martha Stewart's Baking Handbook) and spread it with a layer of homemade tomato sauce from the freezer. Next, I added the fresh mozzarella along with light salami, sauteed red onions and green olives. I preheated the oven to 500 degrees and lowered the heat to 450 degrees after I slid the pizza onto the stone. I baked the pizza for 15 minutes and broiled the top for another minute or so to brown the cheese. The red onions were very sweet, and contrasted nicely with the salty green olives.
