Another Delicious Sauceless Pizza features good extra-virgin olive oil, mushrooms, basil, prosciutto, cappocola, cheeses, and fresh mozzarella and gorgonzola. Ample Bites likes pizza with tomato-based pizza sauce as much as the next guy but these pizzas come out crispy golden with the flavors of the cheeses, basil and oil jumping.
Another Delicious Sauceless Pizza
(Mark Kelly, 2015)
Makes 4 12-inch-diameter pizzas
8 oz. mushrooms, thinly sliced
8 oz. fresh basil leaves, torn
6 oz. cappocola, sliced into strips
6 oz. prosciutto, sliced into strips
8 oz. fresh mozzarella, sliced
8 oz. gorgonzola, crumbled
Pizza Dough (See previous post titled “The Best Pizza Dough”)
Extra-virgin olive oil, to brush
Very good extra-virgin olive oil, to drizzle
Place baking stone or baking steel in the oven and preheat the oven to 500F.
On a flour-dusted cutting board, roll out the pizza dough and brush the dough to the edges with oil. Thinly layer the mushrooms and basil over the dough. Place the sliced meats on the pizza overlapping them slightly, if necessary. Top with crumbled gorgonzola and pieces of the fresh mozzarella.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly and beginning to brown. Allow to cool for a few minutes before cutting and serving.
