Let me just preface this post by saying that this pizza is not healthy... not at all. Well, maybe of you count the arugula... tossed in truffle oil. So if you are looking for a whole wheat, cauliflower crust, you came to the wrong blog.
This is a relatively quick pizza to make. It took me about 30 minutes to prepare and 20 to bake. I saved some time by grabbing some dough from our local pizzeria.
Start by rolling out the dough and brushing it with the homemade "white sauce". As you can see, I have my trusted Silpat underneath to prevent sticking and ensure even cooking,
Add the caramelized onions.
Then the ricotta cheese.
Oh and some fresh mozzarella!
Finally, some prosciutto and then its time to go in the oven.
But we are not done yet...
Finish with the arugula tossed in truffled olive oil and some freshly grated parmesan cheese. Slice and try not to finish the whole pie!
Preheat oven to 425 degrees
1 ball of pizza dough
2 T. olive oil
2 T. butter
1/4 c. cream
3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
1/2 sweet onion, caramelized
salt and pepper
Roll out the pizza dough and place on a cookie sheet. Set aside. Mix olive oil, butter, cream and garlic in a glass measuring cup and microwave for 1 minute or until butter is melted. Chop onion, put in saute pan with salt, pepper and thyme and cook over medium heat until caramelized.
Liberally brush dough with garlic mixture. Scatter onions over pizza. Spoon out dollops of ricotta evenly over dough. Slice some fresh mozzarella and cover pizza. Evenly distribute 4-6 slices of thinly cut prosciutto over the mozzarella. Bake in oven for about 15-20 minutes until bubbly and brown.
Remove pizza from oven and let cool. While pizza is cooling, toss some arugula with some olive oil, truffle oil, salt and pepper. Cover warm pizza with arugula and let wilt. Finish with some freshly grated paremsan cheese.
I don't know about you but I just love the corner pieces...
