Prosciutto Pizza with Pesto Sauce

prosciutto pizza with pesto sauceOne night last week Willow decided to try her hand at making a pizza.  We had been drooling over the packs of prosciutto at Trader Joe’s, so she decided to make a prosciutto pizza with pesto sauce.  The experiment turned out so yummy we decided to share it with you:


2 packs, refrigerated pizza dough

1 container pesto sauce

1-2 Tbsp. olive oil

1 12 oz. bag Quattro Formaggio shredded cheese

1 4 oz. package sliced prosciutto, shredded


Knead together the two packs of pizza dough and pat into the edges of a 16″ diameter pizza pan, folding over the edges to make a crust.  Mix the pesto sauce with 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil and brush over the pizza dough to make a thin layer.  Top with quattro formaggio and shredded prosciutto.

Prosciutto Pizza with Pesto Sauce RecipeBake in a 450F oven for 10 minutes, then check every 1-2 minutes thereafter, until crust is golden brown.  Allow to cool about 5 minutes before slicing.  Serves 6.
