  1. For the pizza shell: Let the pizza base rise according to package directions or recipe.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400°. Line a large baking sheet with foil and place a 9-by-13-inch metal baking dish upside down on the baking sheet. Spray all over with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. Whisk in a small bowl to combine the olive oil, garlic powder, and salt.
  4. Stretch the pizza base roughly into a rectangular shape, about 1 inch larger than the bottom of the baking dish on all sides. Drape the dough over the baking dish so that the dough hangs about 1 1/2 inches over each side. Brush the dough all over with the olive oil mixture.
  5. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, turning the baking sheet once, until golden brown all over. Let the crust cool on the baking dish until just slightly warm, about 30 minutes.
  6. For the dressing: While the crust is cooling, combine the olive oil, vinegar, Parmesan cheese, garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper in a jar with a tight-fitting lid. Shake well to combine.
  7. For the salad: Combine the romaine, radicchio, artichokes, roasted red peppers, olives, and pepperoncini in a large mixing bowl. Drizzle with about two-thirds of the dressing and toss well. Add the salami, pepperoni, mozzarella, and provolone and fold gently to combine.
  8. Turn the pizza base over onto a large serving platter or cutting board. Fill the bowl with salad. Use scissors to cut through the crust and serve slices with salad. Serve immediately with the remaining dressing on the side.

This pizza base can also be baked flat on a large tray!
