Makes: 8 servings

Prep: 15 mins

Bake: 7 mins

  • 1/3 of pizza dough recipe
  • 5 tablespoons store-bought pesto
  • 1 3 ounce package  thinly sliced prosciutto, torn into pieces
  • 2 - 3 handfuls arugula leaves
  • Freshly grated parmesan cheese
  1. Invert a large baking sheet and place it on a rack in the lower third of the oven; preheat the oven to 500 degrees . Invert a second baking sheet on a work surface and cover it with a sheet of parchment paper. Stretch the pizza dough to fit the parchment paper. Using the back of a spoon, spread the pesto over the dough.
  2. Slide the pizza and the parchment from the cool baking sheet to the hot baking sheet in the oven. Bake until golden, about 7 minutes. Top with the prosciutto, arugula and parmesan, and cut into pieces.
  • Pull the dough gently in all directions to loosen.
  • Let the dough hang from your fingers or fists and pull it back and forth so it stretches evenly.
  • Pull the dough to fit a baking sheet, stretching it as thin as you like.
