Prosciutto Ricotta Pizza

Last week I shared a delicious whole wheat pizza crust recipe. Now I’m finally getting around to sharing what I put on it!



My husband & I first had this delicious combination in Italy. You have not had ricotta cheese until you’ve had it fresh in Italy. It’s been 2 years and I still think about it. Ever since, this has become our favorite pizza combo. Naturally, it was our first choice of toppings for my first homemade pizza crust.

It’s nothing too complicated. You start with the standard pizza sauce & shredded mozzarella & then add prosciutto slices & spoonfuls of ricotta. To make it even more delicious I added black pepper, oregano, and crushed garlic. Pro tip: you don’t have to peel garlic if you’re going to use a garlic press!


I don’t have a pizza stone, so I just baked it on an old cookie sheet in the oven at 500 degrees (that’s as hot as my oven gets) for 12-15 minutes.


I didn’t try this, but for a crispier bake it for less time on the cookie sheet & then put it directly on the rack for the last few minutes.


I will definitely try that tip next time.


Now we don’t have to go out to a fancy Italian place to get this awesome pizza!

      You are very right! I wouldn’t even get the frozen pizza we made yesterday out of the oven at 425 degrees!

    Gina, This looks delicious! I have to be honest and say that I’ve never have made a pizza from scratch, but I’m pinning this and hopefully I’ll make it…eventually.
