I like posh pizza.  What I mean is, I like finding new ways to “posh up” a pizza.  That way, us grownups can have one for dinner along with the kids and it doesn’t feel like we’re selling out 😉

This pizza uses an unique combination of salty prosciutto, tangy balsamic onions, punchy red pesto and creamy, cooling mozzarella.  The pesto dyes the pizza base a beautiful golden colour on cooking, and adds more depth of flavour than just plain tomato paste.

I also recommend getting hold of some fresh pizza dough like the dough balls made by Northern Dough Co. You can buy them frozen in Waitrose and Sainsburys so you can always keep them on hand.  Make sure you flour your surface well and then roll out the dough to your desired shape and thickness, before moving to your baking tray and then adding your toppings.  I find that using fresh dough produces a much tastier base than the ready-rolled ones that can get tough on cooking.

Trust me, try it. You’ll thank me later.

Steps

1
Done

Set the oven to 180°C. Flour your work surface and rolling pin, then roll out your dough to the shape and thickness you require (about 1/4 inch is perfect) and carefully transfer it onto an ovenproof pizza tray or any ovenproof tray with holes in the bottom (to prevent a soggy bottom!).

2
Done

Meanwhile, put a little cooking oil in a medium frying pan and fry the onion quickly over a high heat, so it starts to caramelise (about 5 mins). Right at the end, pour over the balsamic vinegar and stir to coat the onions. Be careful, it might spit.

3
Done

Use 2 tbsp. red pesto on each pizza base, spreading it out evenly across the base with the back of the spoon.

4
Done

Scatter over half the balsamic onions and 3 slices of prosciutto per pizza. Top off with a ball of mozzarella each, ripping it apart into small pieces with your hands.

5
Done

Bake in the oven for 15 minutes (or as long the packet instructions tell you). Serve with a green salad, if you like.
