Prosciutto and Arugula Pizza

20 Oct

I like making different types of pizzas. They’re fast easy and usually delicious! Id made something like this before but instead of tomato sauce I used fig preserves. it was good with the tomato sauce, but we both preferred the fig version.

Prosciutto and Arugula Pizza
adapted from the kitchn

1 ball pizza dough
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons tomato sauce
3/4 cup grated mozzarella cheese
4 slices prosciutto
A couple handfuls arugula

If you have a pizza stone, place it on a rack in the middle of the oven. Preheat the oven to 550°F (or maximum oven temperature) for at least 30 minutes.

If transferring the pizza to a stone in the oven, assemble on a well-floured peel or cutting board. Otherwise assemble on the surface you will be cooking on (parchment paper, baking sheet, etc.). Roll or stretch the dough into a circle. Brush the edges of the dough with olive oil. Spread the tomato sauce over the rest of the dough. Sprinkle with about half the cheese. Lay the prosciutto slices so they are evenly covering the dough and sprinkle with the remaining cheese.

Bake the pizza until edges are lightly browned and cheese is bubbly and browned in spots, about 6 minutes at 550°F. Remove from oven and scatter arugula over the top.
