Mango and Prosciutto Pizza

July 24, 2016


Author Notes: A first course of prosciutto wrapped around fruit such as melon is a classic. To make the course a little more playful and hands on, I designed a pizza to do the job. Mangos are sweeter and juicier than melon, and paired with prosciutto make a great starter. The difficulty of serving this pizza is convincing your guests that it is just the beginning of the dinner and they only get one piece.dymnyno

Makes: 2 small 12 inch pizzas

Ingredients

  • 1 mango, peeled and sliced into long thin slices
  • 1/2 cup minced cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions, mostly white part and a little green
  • 3 ounces prosciutto
  • 1 1/2 ounces shredded asiago
  • 1 1/2 ounces shredded parmesan
  • 1 1/2 ounces crumbled sheep feta
  • 2 small pizza doughs, either homemade or purchased from your favorite source

Directions

  1. Mix the sliced mango, minced cilantro, lime juice, olive oil and green onions together.
  2. Toss the asiago, parmesan and feta together.
  3. Liberally sprinkle half of the cheese mixture over one of the pizza doughs which has been prepared in a nice circle. If you are making 2 pizzas at the same time, then just divy up all the ingredients.
  4. Place half of the mangoes over the cheese.
  5. Arrange half of the prosciutto over the mangoes.
  6. Shred with your fingers and put half of the mozzarella around and over the toppings.
  7. Bake in an oven or in a wood fired oven.
