Ideas for big bunch of brocooli rabe?

You have the perfect opportunity to turn this bunch of delicious Rape into one of my grandmother's wonderful Friday night meatless meals. Use the Rape as the center ingredient in a stuffed pizza. The pizza has three ingredients - Sauted Broccoli Rape with ped pepper flakes, an onion creole made from sweet onions sauted in olive oil with some tomatoe pure and canned tuna fish in oil. The Rape and Creole sauce should be seasoned to your taste with salt, pepper and red pepper flakes. Make (or) buy pizza dough rolled out thin into a more long oval shape than round. Place the rolled out dough on a large baking tray. Next start layering the three ingredients on just one half of the spread out pizza. Lay down the sauted Broccoli Rape as the first layer. cover this with the tuna fish broken into shreds not chunks. Next, spread the onion creole mixture over the tuna layer. Now fold other half of the pizza over this mixture and pinch the edges of the two layers together to seal the pie. Slice steam vents in the top half and place the pizza in a hot oven (400 to 500 degrees) and bake untill the bottom crust is golden and crisp and the top crust is golden in color. Remove and let cool for about 10 minutes. Finally cut into it and enjoy a mediteranean treat. Your Friday nights will never be the same.
