Yield: 1 pizza


  • 1 pizza dough
  • 1/3 cup pizza sauce
  • 150 g prosciutto
  • 8 slices fresh mozzarella
  • 1/4 red pepper cut into strips
  • 1/8 cup fresh basil cut into strips
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar


  • Prepare your pizza dough. Let it rise and roll out your dough when you're ready to bake your pizza.
  • Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F.
  • Spread pizza sauce on your pizza dough using the back of a spoon. Spread the pizza sauce right to the edges of the pizza and add more pizza sauce if necessary.
  • Place fresh mozzarella on the pizza in sections. Do not cover the whole pizza in fresh mozzarella. You don't need that much. Use 5-10 slices depending on how big your pizza is. You can refer to the pizza picture for reference of how much mozzarella you'll need for your pizza.
  • Add strips of red pepper around the pizza.
  • Take a piece of prosciutto and rip it into strips that are 1-2 cm thick. You can place them on the pizza and fold them once over itself. Place the prosciutto in this way all around the pizza.
  • Bake the pizza for 10-13 minutes at 500 degrees F. The mozzarella will turn a little brown when it's finished baking. The crust should turn light brown it's finished.
  • Remove the pizza from the oven and place on a wooden cutting board.
  • Add strips of basil to the pizza.
  • Drizzle 1 tbsp of balsamic vinegar onto the pizza.
  • Serve.
