Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 475 degrees F (245 degrees C).

    Advertisement
  • Place prosciutto in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until crisp, about 10 minutes. Set aside.

  • Lightly oil a pizza pan, baking sheet, or baking stone. Press pizza dough out onto the pan, spreading to the edges, but avoiding pulling the dough apart.

  • Combine tomato paste, water, oregano, sugar, and salt in a small bowl. Spread an even layer over the dough. Reserve remaining mixture for use on another pizza. Sprinkle minced garlic over the sauce. Sprinkle 1/2 of the mozzarella on top, then the fried prosciutto, then the rest of the mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle sliced basil leaves over pizza.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cheese and crust are lightly browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Let pizza cool for 3 to 4 minutes, slice, and serve.

I think the prosciutto made it a bit saltier than I would have liked. I also waited until the end to add the basil chiffonade. I chose to cook the pizza in my large cast iron skillet and it gave it a lovely crunch to my dough. I used pizza dough from Winco and added 1 1/2 Tbsp oil to my cast iron, par-baked the dough for 5 minutes at 400° then added the sauce, cheese and cooked prosciutto cooking an additional 18 minutes. I also added a little bit of melted butter and garlic granules and brushed it around the crust, broiling about 2 minutes. Read More
