I ate a similar pizza to this in a restaurant and what made it so delicious was the crispy crust and the soft ricotta cheese. To get a crispy texture, grilling your pizza is the best way to go (unless you have a huge wood fired pizza oven in your house). Enjoy!
1 cup basil pesto sauce (For my recipe go here)
1 pizza dough, split into two (homemade or store bought)
4 slices of prosciutto de parma
2 cups whole milk ricotta cheese
2 tablespoons olive oil
Preheat grill or oven to 400 degrees.
On a floured surface, roll out half of the pizza dough until it is 1/8 inch thick. Do the same with the other half of the dough. Oil the dough with 1 tablespoon of olive oil on each and spread evenly with a pastry brush.
Toss the dough, oiled side down, onto the grill. Now you can slice the the prosciutto into small pieces. Close the grill and allow to cook for 5-6 minutes. Dough should be crusty and golden brown on the first side. Flip the crusts over. Spread the pesto on each of the doughs into a very thin layer. Then using a tablespoon, scoop spoon fulls of the ricotta cheese on the pesto layer. Then sprinkle with the proscuitto and top with a little pepper. Don't add salt, the proscuitto is salty enough. Close the grill and cook for another 5 minutes or until cheese begins to melt. Enjoy.
