Bring it to your next family function warm and watch it disappear. The ingredients listed are a guide…use whatever you have in your cupboard or fridge. Any leftovers do well here, too.
  • bread or pizza dough (store bought or homemade)
  • fresh mozzarella
  • handful basil leaves
  • 6 to 8 slices of prosciutto
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan
  • 6 to 8 oven roasted cherry tomatoes
  • drizzle of olive oil
  1. Preheat oven to 375f. On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to roughly ½-inch thick. Take a baking sheet and scatter with fine cornmeal (to help the dough from sticking). Place dough on baking sheet and add prosciutto slices, basil, tomatoes, mozzarella and Parmesan. Drizzle olive oil over top and fold dough over. Pinch ends to make sure the filling doesn’t ooze out. Bake in the oven for 35 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool 10 minutes before slicing.
The Culinary Chase’s Note: For a vegetarian version, omit the meat and add roasted veggies such as red bell peppers, zucchini, eggplant, roasted garlic and spread pesto over the base. Enjoy!
