1. Score duck breast skin in 1/4" intervals, making a criss-cross pattern. Over low to medium-low heat, place skin side down for approximately 8-12 minutes (or until fat is rendered and skin is crisp and brown.) Place breasts in a 400 degree oven for 3-4 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 155 degrees. Let rest 3-4 minutes.

2. Remove skin from duck breast and discard. Thinly slice duck breast, slicing across the grain.

3. Combine ranch dressing, jalapeno and cilantro. Refrigerate until using.

Per serving:

4. Dust bottom side of pizza dough with cornmeal. Spread salsa on dough and top with cheese. Bake at 425 degrees 6-8 minutes until crust is golden and cheese is melted.

5. Remove from oven and immediately top with shredded lettuce, tomato and sliced warm or cold duck breast. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons jalapeno ranch dressing. (To eat a Piadini, fold and eat out-of-hand, or with knife and fork.)
