Prosciutto and Goat Cheese Pizza

Doesn’t the title sound heavenly? This is yet another recipe from the “saw this on another menu” vault. This time, however, I DID order the pizza at the restaurant–I couldn’t pass on the prosciutto! This is literally one of the easiest pizzas to make (if slightly more expensive than normal thanks to the meat). If I had had the time, I would have bought a fresh bell pepper and roasted it myself (it’s not that hard…see my veggie tart. If you have a gas range, it’s even easier.); however, I was really hungry and consequently used the peppers in a jar.

Regardless of how you obtain your ingredients, you have to make this pizza. Now.



  • Pizza dough, with flour for dusting and Pam or similar substance.
  • One bell pepper, roasted, or the equivalent from a jar.
  • One package of prosciutto
  • Approximately 4 ounces of goat cheese
  • Approximately 6-8 ounces of fresh mozzarella, sliced.

    All the ingredients.

  1. Preheat the oven to 375*F.
  2. If you’re using a fresh pepper, roast it (in which case you may need to tweak the oven temperature). If you’re using roasted peppers from a jar, wrap the peppers in paper towels to sop up the extra liquid.
  3. Slice the pepper and the mozzarella.
  4. After rolling out the pizza dough and placing it on a greased pan, smear a thin layer of goat cheese on the bottom.

    It doesn't have to look like a work of art.
