Hi all. I am on a huge Giada kick & loving all the recipes in her new book plus some old ones. What I like to do is skim through her show on Food Network & if there are any recipes I am interested in I quickly add the link to my list on my sidebar.
Anyway, this appetizer is awesome!!! I haven't worked with prosciutto much in the past but it's a salty meat, an Italian word for ham. This was simple & fun to make, ready to go in the oven as soon as the bell went off. And delicious!!!!!!
Flour, for dusting
1 lb purchased pizza dough (I bought fresh from deli)
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
7 ounces prosciutto, thinly sliced
1 cup coarsely chopped baby spinach
1 tblsp olive oil
Salt & Pepper
Preheat oven to 425 & position rack in lower third of the oven. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. If not, grease one.
On a lightly floured work surface, roll out the pizza dough into a 12 to 14-inch circle, about 1/4-inch thick. Sprinkle 1/2 of the mozzarella over the dough. Arrange the prosciutto over the cheese in a single layer. Sprinkle with the chopped spinach, then top with the remaining cheese.
Roll the dough into a thin cylinder, gently tucking in the ends. Brush the entire roll with the olive oil & season with the salt & pepper. Place the dough, seam-side down, on the baking sheet & bake for 25 minutes until the top is golden brown.
Cool the roll for 10 minutes, then use a serrated knife to cut it into 3/4-inch slices.
