PROSCIUTTO AND ARUGULA PIZZA RECIPE: http://learntocook.com/pizza/how-to-make-prosciutto-arugula-pizza/

Pizza Dough:
1 packet active dry yeast
1 cup warm water (105-115 degrees)
1 tsp honey
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
3 cups flour
1 tsp salt

Pizza Toppings:
1 cup fontina, shredded
1 cup mozzarella, shredded
1 lemon
2 tbsp chopped shallot
olive oil
6 thin sliced of prosciutto
salt and pepper
2 cups arugula
Parmesan cheese shavings


1. In standing mixer, combine water and yeast. Stir with a spoon to combine and let the mixture sit for about 5 minutes.

2. Add the honey and olive oil and stir. Add salt and 1.5 cups of flour and turn your mixer on low. Continue adding flower until the dough is smooth and slightly sticky. You might need to add a little bit more water to get the right consistency.

3. Once the dough is done, flour your hands. Oil a large mixing bowl and add the dough, turning it in the bowl so it gets coated in the oil. Cover with a towel and let it set in a warm place for about 1.5 hours or until it’s doubled in size.

4. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Place the dough on a floured surface and roll out to a large round. Coat with a thin layer of olive oil. Sprinkle chopped shallots, fontina cheese and mozzarella cheese. You can sprinkle the cheese closer to the edges than you might think. Then top the cheese with the thin slices of prosciutto.

5. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes. While that is cooking, combine arugula and the juice of one lemon. Add about 1 tbsp of olive oil, salt and pepper. Taste to make sure the lemon/oil ratio is good.

6. Take the pizza out of the oven and top with the arugula. Add a few pieces of shaved parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
