Navajo Fry Bread Pizza is a dish that is inspired by the wonderfully thin, slightly crunchy fry breads of the American Southwest. Just what the name implies, fry bread is a simple flour, salt, baking powder dough which is kneaded and quickly fried in a small amount of sizzling oil.
It's used here as a pizza crust. The savory topping starts with sharp Cheddar cheese, then goes traditional with a generous amount of finely chopped black olives.
Heat under the broiler until bubbly, cut into wedges, and serve with a favored salsa.
