Mozzarella, prosciutto and tomato pizza

Serves 4


  • 300g strong bread flour
  • 1 tsp instant yeast (from a sachet or a tub)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 200ml warm water
  • 1 tbsp olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
  • 250g ball of buffalo Mozzarella, sliced
  • 8 slices prosciutto, torn
  • 10 cherry tomatoes, halved

To serve:

  • Black pepper
  • 2 handfuls of rocket leaves
  • 40-50g Parmesan, shaved


  1. Put the flour into a large bowl, then stir in the yeast and salt. Make a well and pour in the water and olive oil. Stir the mixture together with a wooden spoon until it forms a soft, fairly wet dough.
  2. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead for five minutes until smooth. Cover with a tea towel and set aside for ten minutes.
  3. Preheat the oven to 230˚C/210˚C fan/gas mark 8 and lightly flour two baking trays or pizza stones. Pat the slices of Mozzarella dry with kitchen paper.
  4. Knead the dough for 1-2 minutes, then split it in two. On a floured surface, roll out the dough into large rounds, about 25cm across; the dough should be very thin. Lift the rounds onto the prepared baking trays.
  5. Drizzle the pizza bases with extra-virgin olive oil, then arrange the slices of Mozzarella on top. Add the torn prosciutto and tomatoes.
  6. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the bases are crisp and golden and the cheese has melted.
  7. Season the pizzas with black pepper and scatter each with a handful of rocket leaves. Top with the Parmesan shavings and drizzle with some additional olive oil, then slice and serve immediately.

TOP TIP: Don’t worry if you can’t find buffalo Mozzarella: just use a regular ball of cow’s milk Mozzarella.
