The best prosciutto pizza recipe with a secret sauce!

We love everything prosciutto – it’s the perfect addition to any sandwich, pasta, chicken or pizza. I’ve even wrapped peaches in prosciutto! It’s incredibly delicious on this easy to make Prosciutto Pizza!

We make it with a secret “sauce”. Well, actually jam! Fig is my jam. Figs themselves are absolutely gorgeous and sweet as candy.

I love tossing them in salads, snacking on them, or using the jam in a crostini bar – and on pizza! Yes, pizza.

The sweet fig flavor balances a salty prosciutto, which is why it is my absolute favorite pizza recipe.  You’ll crave again and again!

I’ve been seeing the “porky fig” combination in so many ways, salads, pizzas, sandwiches and appetizers and this is one bandwagon I am all over. I’m incorporating it into everything.

Making pizza at home is so simple and it’s a meal that the girls love helping me with. I roll out the store bought dough purchased in the refrigerated section of the grocery store.

I particularly love Trader Joe’s. You can also purchase fresh pizza dough at most pizzerias. The girls add the sauce, toppings and cheese and are so proud of their creations.

We all love this Prosciutto Pizza recipe, but Isla just can’t get enough of it! Psst… if you’re looking for a classic pizza night, be sure to check out my classic pizza sauce!

The Porky Fig | Flavorful fall pizza recipe

My secret to really great pizza is freshly shredded cheese. It takes just a couple additional minutes, but it is so much creamier! Brushing a little olive oil on the crust never hurts either! As I’ve mentioned in previous pizza recipes, I prefer to buy my pizza dough from local pizzerias, but grocery store doughs work as well, I’ve just never found one I love near as much.
