Prosciutto and Mozzarella Pizza

Prosciutto with greens1

If you love prosciutto you will love this pizza.  The salty prosciutto with the fresh mozzarella and the greens on top are amazing. 



1 Prepared Pizza Dough

12 Slices Prosciutto

1 Lb Fresh Mozzarella

Arugula or Mescalin Greens

Olive Oil



Preheat oven to 450º.

There are two ways that I like to cook pizza at home.  I have used both and they are equally good.

Option #1

Stretch the dough into a 9-inch round pizza pan or a baking sheet.  Brush with olive oil. Sprinkle with oregano or Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.  Bake until golden brown. 

Top the hot crust with thinly sliced mozzarella.  Add the prosciutto and return to the oven until the cheese is melted.  

Remove from the oven and top with arugula or mescalin greens to serve. 


Option #2

Place a pizza stone or an inverted baking sheet on the lowest oven rack.  Let the oven heat up to 450º – 500º.  

Lightly flour a pizza peel. If you don’t have a pizza peel a piece of parchment paper will work just fine.  Add the fresh mozzarella and prosciutto on top of the dough.  Place the parchment paper with the pizza in the oven on top of the pizza stone or baking sheet. If you are using a pizza peel, slide the pizza on the stone or inverted baking sheet.

Cook until golden brown.  Remove from the oven and top with arugula or mescalin greens to serve.
