Simmer Tomato Sauce
Preheat oven to 450ºF. Remove pizza dough from bag and let soften at room temperature. In a medium ovenproof pan, heat crushed tomatoes over high heat (we love using cast iron, but any ovenproof pan will do the trick!). Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium and cook until thickened, 10-12 minutes. Taste and add salt and black pepper as desired. Transfer to a bowl and wipe pan clean, reserving for Step 4.
While sauce simmers, rinse kale, trim and discard long stems, and thinly slice leaves crosswise. Using your hands, massage kale until beginning to soften, 1-2 minutes. Halve lemon. Mince garlic and, still on cutting board, sprinkle over ⅛ teaspoon salt. Using a large knife, carefully scrape over mixture at a 45° angle, pressing down. Repeat until garlic is broken down and a paste forms. Place in a large bowl.
Make Parmesan-Kale Salad
Add mustard, juice of 1 lemon, 2 tablespoons olive oil, ⅛ teaspoon salt, and black pepper as desired to bowl with garlic paste and whisk to combine. Add half of Parmesan and gently stir to combine, then add kale and toss to coat. Set aside to marinate until ready to serve.
Using your hands, stretch and roll dough into a circular shape (it should be the same size as your ovenproof pan). Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in pan from sauce over medium heat. Working very carefully (your pan is still hot!), add dough to pan and increase heat to medium high. Cook without flipping until bubbles form on top and bottom is golden, about 5 minutes.
Assemble Grandma Pie
Remove pan from heat. Drizzle 1 teaspoon olive oil over dough, being sure to coat edges, and season with ¼ teaspoon salt and black pepper as desired. Sprinkle over mozzarella and provolone and dollop tomato sauce over cheese (the reverse layering of cheese, then sauce is what makes this pie so special!). Sprinkle over crushed red pepper (skip or use half for less heat).
Finish and Plate Grandma Pie
Transfer pan to oven and bake until dough is golden and cheese is melted, about 20 minutes (this is a great time to get a head start on cleanup). Let grandma pie cool for about 5 minutes, then slide onto a cutting board to slice. Serve with kale salad, garnish everything with remaining Parmesan, and dig in!
