What a way to kick off the weekend than with this prosciutto arugula burrata pizza.
I mean, come on. It is now become my everything.
I have to admit, making pizza has always been a bit intimidating to me. Yeast and rolling dough and using flour and pizza stones – I’ve just never really been into it. But what I can do is stretch pre bought pizza dough (love Traders Joes!) on an olive oiled baking sheet and bake away.
That I can definitely handle. And so can you, I promise.
All that’s left is to top it with melty mozzarella and burrata (swoon), bake a little more, and than on top goes the fresh arugula and prosciutto. Super simple.
And then LOOK AT IT! Come on, did you ever think you could make something so pretty?
Of course you did. Piece. Of. Cake.
Happy Friday Friends!
PROSCIUTTO ARUGULA BURRATA PIZZA
Recipes from ALFS
1 pizza dough (I use Trader Joes, set out to room temp 30 min before)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
½ teaspoon dried oregano
4 ounces fresh mozzarella, sliced
8 ounces buratta
6 ounces sliced prosciutto
Red pepper flakes
1 cup arugula
Salt and pepper
Balsamic glaze, I use store bought
Preheat your oven to 450 degrees.
Grease a rimmed baking sheet with olive oil and stretch out your dough to cover. Bake for roughly 7-9 minutes.
Remove from the oven and add a few drizzles of olive oil, the garlic, oregano, mozzarella and burrata. Bake for an additional 5 minutes, until the the cheese is melted and bubbling.
Remove from the oven and top with prosciutto. Back in the oven it goes for a few more minutes until the prosciutto gets toasted and slightly crisp.
In a small bowl, dress the arugula with a little olive oil, salt, and pepper. Remove pizza from the oven and top with the dressed arugula. Drizzle balsamic glaze on top.
