Sounds Good

Its raining, its Friday, it’s almost dinnertime.
Doesn’t pizza sound good for dinner?

How does homemade pizza with prosciutto, fresh mozzarella and lemon cream sauce sound? That’s what I thought.  This is modeled after a Bertucci’s Nolio pizza; but of course with my own twists.

The ‘Nattio
(This is simple with the help of some store-bought things; but delicious nonetheless)
1 tbs butter
1 large onion, sliced
Pinch each: Sea Salt & Freshly Ground Pepper
1 lb of pizza dough (or make your own)
1 cup prepared Alfredo sauce
1 small lemon, zested
1 c. fresh mozzarella, sliced
6 oz prosciutto, chopped (the prosciutto won’t crisp so I removed some of the gratuitous fat)

Pre-heat oven to 350. In a heavy saucepan, melt butter, add onions and salt and pepper. Cover and let cook down. This will take about 20 minutes with the occasional stir. Once the onions are browned, soft and delicious looking, uncover and let cook another 5 minutes to cook off the excess liquid. Now, you’re ready to party.

Lightly spray a pizza tray or tin foil with cooking spray. Roll out dough right onto it and being adding the toppings. Add 1/2 cup of the sauce. On top of that, layer the onions, then cheese, prosciutto, and lemon zest. Here’s where it gets crazy. Add the rest of the sauce on top; like a delicious creamy blanket. Sprinkle freshly ground pepper on top. Bake for 15-20 minutes until cheese browns (if your crust is thick; you may want to cook covered in tin foil for 10 minutes so cheese doesn’t burn; then remove tin for the last few minutes). Serves 2-3.  

Before the blanket of deliciousness…..
After being tucked in with an Alfredo blanket and being baked for 18 minutes….

Since it is Friday and all, you could enjoy one of these…..

Just sayin’!
