Ingredients

  • 1 lbs prepared pizza dough or 2 large pre-made pizza shells
  • 200 ml pizza sauce
  • 85 grams San Daniele Prosciutto 1 package
  • 200 grams grated mozzarella
  • 110 grams fresh mozzarella, torn into large pieces
  • 6 medium fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp semolina flour or corse cornmeal for sprinkling on pizza stone or tray

Instructions

  1. Remove pizza dough from fridge if using fresh pizza and preheat oven or BBQ to 475° F with 2 pizza stones or baking trays upside down on middle rack in oven.

  2. Prepare fresh pizza dough as per package (or roll out into 2 pizza shapes of your choice on a floured surface).

  3. Sprinkle semolina flour on preheated pizza stones or baking trays (keep trays upside down) and place pizza dough on top. Bake/grill fresh pizza dough for approximately 3 minutes (skip this step if using pre-made pizza shells).

  4. Remove stones or baking trays from oven/grill and top pizza dough/shells with pizza sauce, grated mozzarella cheese, prosciutto, fresh mozzarella (tucked in between prosciutto), and sprinkle basil on top. Bake/grill** for 7-12 minutes or until dough is cooked through, cheese is nicely browned on top, and prosciutto looks crispy.

  5. Let cool for 2-5 minutes and slice into desired sized slices.

Recipe Notes

* I find fresh mozzarella or buffalo mozzarella (mozzarella di bufala) are the best for pizza. It's this type of cheese that gives the ultimate cheese pull. 

** Keep a close eye on the BBQ's temperature gage so that your pizza never burns!
