Please note: If specific brands are unavailable, we will substitute with similar products.
On the night before: Remove the pizza dough from the freezer and place in refrigerator to thaw overnight.
||One hour before use: Take the pizza dough out of the refrigerator and remove all packaging. Coat the dough in a very thin amount of olive oil. Let stand at room temperature for one hour to allow the dough to rise (proof).|
||After proofing the dough for an hour, preheat the oven to 500° F. Place a pizza stone or rimmed baking sheet (placed upside down)* in the middle rack of your oven.|
||Dust a large, clean surface with flour, enough to just lightly cover the surface. Flatten the ball of dough and work it into a circular shape with your hands. Once you have a 6- to 8-inch circle, place the dough on the floured surface. Dust the surface of the dough with a little more flour. Using a rolling pin, flatten the dough into a 12-inch circle, rotating and flipping dough as needed to achieve this shape. Rolling from the center out, make sure the dough is evenly thick in all places. (It does not need to be a perfect circle.)|
||Place the dough on a floured pizza peel* and give the peel a shake to make sure the dough does not stick.|
||Brush rolled out pizza dough with olive oil. Evenly distribute roasted tomatoes, basil and red onion across the pizza dough. Sprinkle with sea salt. Carefully transfer dough to preheated pizza stone or baking sheet.|
||Bake in oven for 12 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned and crisp. Cooking will take up to several minutes less time if you are using a convection oven setting.|
||Carefully remove from the oven. Top with sliced prosciutto and drizzle with more olive oil. Let stand for 2 minutes before slicing and serving.|
*If not using a pizza peel, carefully assemble the pizza directly on the preheated baking surface.
