Anyway, I had some left over prosciutto from a recent calzone night and I wanted to find a new recipe so I could use it up. My husband loves eating prosciutto but I've never been a big fan, which I guess is a good thing considering the price per pound on this stuff. After searching around I came across a Pioneer Woman recipe that called for prosciutto and fresh mozzarella....and it sounded delicious! I edited it a little bit to suit our tastses...I added a little bit of my white sauce as a base and also added in garlic. I was really suprised there was no garlic in the original recipe, I really think it enhanced the flavor!
-1 whole pizza crust (I cheated and used Pillsbury dough)
-2 tablespoons EVOO
-2 cloves minced garlic
-1/3 cup heavy cream (you can sub fat free half & half here to cut down on some of the calories)
-1 teaspoon garlic powder-1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
- 10 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced
-4-6 slices of prosciutto, cut into strips or desired size-1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees
2. In a saucepan over medium-high heat, heat the EVOO and cook the minced garlic for about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium and add the heavy cream, garlic powder, and garlic salt. When cream is heated, add 1/4 cup of the Paremsan and cook until fully melted. Simmer to thicken, about 5-6 minutes
3. Pour white sauce over pizza dough, top with mozzarella cheese and prosciutto. Bake for 13-15 minutes, or until crust is golden brown and cheese is metled.
