spinach & prosciutto white pizza


It's going to be a good Wednesday. I've got pizza for you! And... a GREAT giveaway that is absolutely perfect for summer fun. But we'll talk about that in a minute...

What are your favorite pizza toppings? I tend to be all over the map. It's so hard to beat a good, classic margherita. But then again, weird, unexpected twists like this or this are also really great! Let's face it: it's pizza. It's going to be delicious.

This combo is a new favorite. The salty prosciutto gets crispy and ohmygoshsogood in the oven. The spinach is a little spicy from a pinch of red pepper flakes. And the cheese -- whole milk mozzarella -- is the ultimate in creamy goodness. Give this one a try! It just might be your new favorite. :)

Spinach & Prosciutto White Pizza
makes 1 pizza

you'll need:
1 fresh pizza dough
2 big handfuls of baby spinach
olive oil
kosher salt
red pepper flakes
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup whole milk mozzarella, shredded
4 thin slices of prosciutto

Preheat oven to 500 degrees F.

Stretch out pizza dough on a large oiled baking sheet. Set aside to allow the dough to rest.

Saute spinach in a large skillet with a bit of salt and red pepper flakes. Once spinach is cooked, remove from the skillet and set aside to cool slightly.

Lightly brush the dough with olive oil. Sprinkle garlic cloves over the top. Lay prosciutto slices, then top with spinach and mozzarella.

Bake pizza for 10 minutes, or until cheese is browned and bubbly. Allow to cool for a few minutes before slicing and devouring.
