What to Do with Pizza Leftovers? Make Them Into Salad

Unless you are the world's most prescient shopper you're likely to end up with leftover produce after making pizza at home. After staying up until 2 a.m. baking pizzas a few nights ago, I collapsed into a flour-addled coma and awoke hours later to find fresh mozzarella, fresh basil, and the juices strained from a 28-ounce can of San Marzano tomatoes regarding me reproachfully from the depths of the refrigerator.
