One of my all-time favorite pizza varieties: arugula prosciutto pizza with mozzarella cheese, basil pesto and balsamic glaze, topped with fresh arugula on my home-made pizza dough! Each slice is loaded with so much amazing flavor, you won’t be able to have just one slice! And the home-made pizza dough is so easy to make – use it for any pizza variety.

The Pizza Dough
Start this prosciutto pizza with my easy, homemade pizza dough! It’s made with lots of olive oil and you can also season it with dried herbs such as oregano or basil. We’ve been using the same recipe in my family for years! It’s a fluffy and flavorful dough; perfect for pizza! Once you have the dough ready, cover and let it proof at room temperature while you prepare the pizza toppings. Don’t have time to make your own dough? Store-bought dough will also work well!
The Pizza Toppings
The toppings always make the pizza! For this zesty and salty prosciutto pizza, I’m using a combination of tomato sauce and basil pesto for the base! Top the sauce with mozzarella and parmesan cheese and slices of shallot. Now, the pizza is ready for the oven! Bake until it’s golden and crispy, then it’s ready for the rest of the toppings!
- Add the prosciutto, capers, arugula and balsamic glaze onto the already baked pizza crust and enjoy!
This recipe makes two large pizzas. Enjoy one now and try freezing one for later! Just transfer your rolled out pizza dough onto a tray lined with parchment paper and add the toppings. Hold off on the arugula until the pizza is baked; fresh is always best. Place the pizza into the freezer and once it’s completely frozen, transfer into a sealed bag for storage. Follow the same baking instructions when ready to enjoy!
