Caramelized Fennel and Prosciutto Pizza | Tasty Tuesday #Recipe Swap

I make pizza once a week. I use fresh dough from Rhode Island {even though I am in New York} that my family brings to me in bulk every time they visit. I freeze it, and thaw it on the counter the day I plan on baking the pizza. Is that weird? Sounds crazy now that I typed it out, but the hard water here makes the breads and dough taste weird to me and at $3 a pound I’m all set. The dough from Solitro’s Bakery is amazing to me and its $1 a pound. So, we stay loyal to what we like in this house.

Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Recipe type: Pizza
Cuisine: Italian
Serves: 4
  • 1 pound fresh pizza dough
  • 2 fennel bulbs cleaned and chopped into strips
  • ¼ pound fresh prosciutto, sliced
  • 1 cup pizza sauce of your choice {I find Trader Joe's makes a pretty decent sauce}
  • 8 ounces of freshly grated mozzarella cheese
  • ¼ cup shaved Parmigiano cheese
  • pinch of garlic powder
  • olive oil
  1. Heat the oven to 425. {I use a pizza stone and let that heat up in the oven for a good 20 minutes before baking the pizza.}
  2. While the oven is heating, place your prosciutto on a baking sheet and cook in the oven for about 8-10 minutes or until its crispy. Remove and let cool.
  3. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add the chopped fennel, season with a pinch of salt and cook for 5 minutes or until the fennel is tender. Add 2 tablespoons of water to the pan and turn the heat to high while scrapping off the browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Cover and reduce heat to low and cook another 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set to the side.
  4. Prepare the pizza dough by rolling it out into a 10-12" round. Place the pizza on a pizza peel or pan of your choice so that you can easily transfer it to the oven.
  5. Rub 1 tablespoon of oil over the pizza dough. Sprinkle a pinch of garlic powder over the dough.
  6. Spread the sauce over the dough. Sprinkle the cooked fennel over the sauce. Crumble the prosciutto and sprinkle over the pizza. Top with mozzarella and Parmigiano cheese.
  7. Transfer the pizza to the oven and cook for 15-20 minutes or until the dough is cooked through.
  8. Eat immediately!
