Prosciutto, Basil and Olive Pizza

I wanted to make a pizza modeled after my favorite and 2nd favorite pizza places, Pepe’s Pizza in New Haven, CT and Vic and Angelo’s in Palm Beach Gardens, Fl. The key to a great pizza is heat heat and more heat. My oven can only get up to 500 degrees, I wanted to try to hit the 700 degree ballpark. To do so I would use wood (which burns hotter than charcoal) and charcoal. I would also cook my pizza on the grill on a pizza stone.

Instructions

  1. 1Place the dough in a well oiled large bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Place in a warm place and let rise until doubled, 60-90mins
  2. 2After dough has risen sprinkle flour over working surface and on rolling pin and roll dough to desired size.
  3. 3Preheat oven to 450 deg or max temperature. If cooking on grill, light coals and/or wood.
  4. 4Spread the sauce over the dough. Add mozzarella then remaining topping.
  5. 5When the flames die out and the wood/coals are bright red, put pizza stone on top of grill grate and allow the pizza stone to get hot.
  6. 6Sprinkle parmesan cheese over pizza and cook in covered grill for 10mins or until crust is browned. If cooking in 450 degree oven cook for 15-20mins.
