Pesto and Prosciutto Pizza

Posted by Christina Barkanic on 02/15 at 11:37 AM

Try homemade pizza tonight in place of delivery. It will be hot out of the oven in the same amount of time a cardboard box could arrive on your doorstep—and it’s much more satisfying.

What are your favorite pizza toppings?


1 can pizza dough
5 tablespoons pesto sauce
3 oz package thinly sliced prosciutto, torn into pieces
1 thinly sliced red pepper
1/2 cup broccoli
2-3 gloves minced garlic
Fresh mozzarella thinly sliced


Preheat oven to 500°F. In a skillet, sauté pepper and broccoli with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Then stretch dough onto parchment paper. Using the back of a spoon spread pesto over dough. Add pepper and broccoli on top. Then add the mozzarella and shredded prosciutto. Place pizza on a baking sheet and bake until crispy and golden, about 7 minutes.
