Pizza with Prosciutto, Sun-Dried Tomatoes, and Fresh Basil


Semi-Homemade Pizza that’s Quick and Easy

Prep Time: 10 min

Cook Time: 10-12min

Serves: 2-3


  • Pizza Dough, store bought or your own (I get the ball from IL Fornanio, @ HEB to save time).
  • 1/2 a package of Prosciutto (find one cured with sea salt, not nitrates if possible).
  • 14 oz of a mozzarella, provolone, and swiss blend, shredded, (you can use more or less depending on how much cheese you like).
  • 1/2 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano (don’t skimp, use some good stuff).
  • 1/2 a package of sun-dried tomatoes (the dry kind, not in oil).
  • 3-5 oz of Muir Organic Tomato Sauce (add 1 TBS of oregano, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, and pinch of salt and stir).
  • Fresh basil, chiffonade 7-10 leaves


  1. Preheat Oven to 450 degrees
  2. Toss pizza dough until thinned all the way out and place on stone or pizza pan (flour your hands so it doesn’t stick).
  3. Add spoonfuls of sauce until the desired amount is on the dough, I like less.
  4. Add cheese evenly
  5. Top with sun-dried tomatoes, prosciutto, and Parmigiano-Reggiano
  6. Bake for about 13 min or until golden
  7. Top with lots of fresh basil and serve immediately

PAIR WITH A PETITE SIRAH WINE, we had a $11.99 bottle of Mc Mannis.

About zestybeandog

I live in Austin with my wonderful husband, dog Ginger, and cat Skiddy. We are a pretty laid back group (except for Ginger). When I'm not teaching yoga, personal training, or dog walking... I'm in the kitchen. I'm always experimenting with new ingredients and thinking of ways to prepare fresh foods in a unique way. I hope to update the blog 4-5 times a week. I've had several friends, family, and clients inquire about my recipes so here it goes. What to expect: Healthy recipes that are good for you, some classics (that have been spruced up), some not so healthy recipes (still made with quality ingredients that can be enjoyed in moderation), and beer and wine parings/reviews! I hope you enjoy, cheers!
