After a long day of work, it’s very necessary to change into our sweats and park on the couch. Do you know what’s also a great way to release some stress? Pizza. Before you call your favorite pizza joint, you might want to try something new instead like… making homemade pizza! No, we’re not crazy for suggesting this. You won’t believe how easy it is to make pizza right in your kitchen after trying out this blue cheese prosciutto pizza recipe.
Honestly, pizza isn’t hard to make at home as long as you have a good pre-made pizza dough. It’s why I love making pizza at home because it allows you to be creative and add your favorite toppings (or whatever fresh food is still in your fridge). For pizza dough, I use Wewalka, a European bakery style dough (not a sponsor). Their Bistro Pizza dough makes the best thin and crispy pizza in 18 minutes or less.
Experimenting with toppings is what makes this recipe easy and fun. For this pizza, we had prosciutto slices and blue cheese in the fridge so I decided to make a more “grown-up” pizza that tasted absolutely delicious.
- Pre-made pizza dough
- 2 Tbs. Olive oil
- 1 tsp. Garlic powder
- 1 bag of Mozzarella cheese
- Proscuitto slices
- Crumbled blue cheese
Preheat oven according to pizza dough package directions. Lay out the dough on a baking sheet. Cover with olive oil and sprinkle with garlic powder. Cover 3/4 bag of Mozzarella cheese on pizza. Top with prosciutto and blue cheese. Add rest of cheese on top of the pizza. Place sheet in the oven and let the pizza dough cook based on package directions. When done, turn on broil to the high setting. Broil pizza for 2 to 3 minutes, but watch closely until it’s golden brown. Enjoy!
