Ingredients (9)

  • Shallots - 1/2 pound
  • Gorgonzola
  • Spinach
  • Prosciutto
  • Zinfandel - Bottle
  • BBQ Sauce - your favorite bottled sauce
  • Sugar
  • Franks Red Hot

Using homemade crust is best but your local pizza place may be able to save you some time by selling you ready made dough. Store bought dough will also work.


  1. 1Add sliced shallots to skillet with olive oil, butter, and sugar and cook on low stirring occasionally until shallots are a deep golden color–20-30 mins.
  2. 2Remove shallots and add prosciutto sliced into strips and cook until crispy
  3. 3Remove prosciutto and deglaze pan with Zinfandel, add BBQ sauce and Franks Red Hot and cook until reduced by 2/3rds
  4. 4Lightly saute spinach until slightly wilted
  5. 5Spread dough out on a pizza peel and spread with Zinfandel Sauce, top with shallots, fresh mozzarella, spinach, gorgonzola, and prosciutto and bake at 500 degrees on a pizza stone until bubbly with crispy crust–10-15 mins
