How to Make It

Step 1

Let the dough stand at room temperature, covered, for 30 minutes.

Step 2

Place a pizza stone or heavy baking sheet in oven. Preheat oven to 500° (keep pizza stone or baking sheet in oven as it preheats).

Step 3

Roll the dough into a 14-inch circle on a lightly floured surface, and pierce entire surface liberally with a fork. Carefully remove pizza stone from oven. Sprinkle cornmeal over pizza stone; place dough on pizza stone. Spread sauce over dough, leaving a 1/2-inch border; top with cheese. Bake at 500° for 14 minutes or until crust is golden and cheese is lightly browned. Remove from oven; brush outer crust with olive oil. Arrange prosciutto over pizza; top with oregano. Cut into 6 large slices.

Pretty good. Definitely doesn't require 14 mins to cook. Don't skip the fresh herbs either.

This was the worst pizza I have ever made!! We used a whole wheat pizza dough ball from the grocery deli and put it on our pizza stone. The 500 degree oven was WAY too hot-the pizza burned within 7 minutes. The cheese was really thick at the end. I used fresh basil from my garden but it didn't help. The Prosciutto was chewy. Everyone ate less than 1/2 of a piece and we threw it out.

Everyone loved it-but I followed the directions on the bought pizza dough!

Used Trader Joe's plain pizza dough, shredded mozzarella, and basil...I also put the prosciutto on the pizza 8 minutes into cooking. Turned out to be delicious!

YUM. I crisped up the prosciutto in a pan first and then put it on the pizza before baking. Also threw some arugula/spring mix on top at the end, which we thought was a good addition. This was really way more interesting than I expected it to be! The fresh oregano is a must.

Good but we would add the prosciutto to the pizza when you put it in the oven instead of at the end.

I made this with a few tweaks and it was very good. First, I used a Freshetta pre-made crust and Mario Batali's pizza sauce and added fresh basil to the oregano. I put the proscuitto on the pizza after cooking for 8 minutes so it was a little bit crispy. Finally I sprinkled it with a little bit of crushed red pepper. Will definitely make it again.
