Week 51: Pesto & Prosciutto Pizza

prosciutto and pesto pizza
Is there a more fun way to spend date night then coming up with your own winning pizza combinations and baking them in our own oven? I don’t think so, but then again, I’m easily pleased. Ever since I discovered the premade pizza dough at Trader Joe’s, I’ve been hooked. It makes it so easy to make your own pizza. Not only can you make it healthy, but you know exactly what you’re putting on the pie, no mystery toppings here. We opted for a Pesto & Prosciutto Pizza because it was quick and easy and we didn’t need to spend too much time prepping the ingredients. We artfully decorate our pie, tossed it in the oven, started watching a movie and before we got to the good part, dinner was ready. Easy, peasy, date night idea. What are some of your favorite stay in date nights?

Follow the directions on the package of pizza dough. After rolling out dough, brush the crust with olive oil and liberally top with pesto. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and lay thin slices of prosciutto on the dough. Sprinkle with basil and bake for 15 minutes, until cheese is browned and crust is crispy.

Remove from the oven and top with fresh arugula.
