This Blue Cheese Prosciutto Pizza has a little tang from the blue cheese but pairs excellent with the prosciutto crudo!
We do pizza A LOT in our household. I am pretty sure I have told you I make it every weekend, from scratch.
So when I knew we were having some guest over I decided to kick it up a notch!
We had a lovely time with a group of people from our church a few weekends ago. It was AMAZING! Even though I stuck to the kitchen most of the night pumping out pizza after pizza it was something to remember.
I ended up making about 12 pizzas that night, fresh and hot out of the oven but I want to say that this one was the one that got the most attention!
I was not in the room when this pizza hit the table but my daughter did quote one of our guest saying “ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner!”
Apparently the blue cheese prosciutto pizza was a hit! So much so that I decided to make it for the next week when we did pizza so I could share it with you guys, and so I could eat a slice hot!
And let me tell you, it is a winner! 🙂

So when looking for your ingredients I just used blue cheese crumbles that I picked up at my local grocery store. I also want to encourage you to get prosciutto crudo (which means uncooked) verses prosciutto cotto (which means cooked). So no using regular deli ham for this. Get the good stuff!
I make my own pizza dough, so if you are looking for a recipe, check it out! ENJOY!
