Goat Cheese Pizza With Prosciutto and honey on top.

This Goat Cheese Prosciutto Pizza with Marjoram is easy to make, has lovely floral notes, a kick of spice and sweetness, and is very delicious. The creamy goat cheese paired with salty prosciutto and a drizzle of sweet honey is irresistible, and we think you all will love this recipe.

🌿 What is Marjoram?

Marjoram is similar to oregano, but it’s milder and sweeter in flavor with citrus notes. When served fresh, it’s described as delicate in taste; that’s why we love to add fresh marjoram to this prosciutto pizza with creamy goat cheese and a drizzle of sweet honey on top. The flavor combination of all three is truly unique and delicious.

🍕 Ingredients

To make this delicious pizza, you will need simple ingredients and fresh marjoram, which can be found easily at the local grocery stores. Here’s what you need to make it.

  • Pizza dough. Either homemade or store-bought pizza base work here. Even a flatbread would be delicious. For our picture, we used our 72-hour cold fermented pizza dough recipe. We love how much flavor this pizza dough has and how many airs pockets it has. Dreamy and delicious.
  • Prosciutto. We used Creminelli Prosciutto because we love the flavor, and it’s not too salty. However, some prosciutto can be too salty, so be careful which brand you choose. We recommend adding only a few prosciutto slices rather than too many. You want to keep the salty flavor down because you want the marjoram and goat cheese to shine here.
  • Extra Viring Olive Oil Infused with Garlic. For the pizza sauce, we combine olive oil with 2 garlic cloves, salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes. It’s our favorite white sauce because it’s so simple and adds excellent flavor.
  • Fresh Marjoram Leaves. We love fresh marjoram over the dried herb on this pizza. It’s delicate and sweet in flavor.
  • Goat Cheese. For this recipe, we recommend using chevre goat cheese like Vermont’s Classic Chevre Goat Cheese, which is fresh, creamy, tart, tangy, and delicious.
  • Honey. We use regular honey here, but feel free to use any honey you have. Don’t skip this ingredient. You are only drizzling a little honey on top for an extra pop of sweetness.  

🫓 Instructions

This homemade pizza is easy to make, but first, you’ll need a few key items to make pizza at home a success. These items are parchment paper, a pizza peel, and a pizza stone. We also recommend making a rectangular cut pizza instead of a round one for this recipe because this pizza can be served as a delicious appetizer.

  • Preheat Oven & Prep Ingredients. Preheat the oven to 550 °F or the highest temperature it can get with the pizza stone inside. You want the oven and the pizza stone as hot as possible. The most important thing is to leave the oven running for at least 10 minutes after it’s preheated to ensure the pizza stone is at the same temperature as your oven.
  • Make the Pizza Sauce. Mince the garlic and add it to a small bowl with extra-virgin olive oil and a pinch of salt, black pepper, and red chili flakes. Stir to combine.
  • Prep the Pizza Dough. Roll out the pizza dough into a thin layer on a floured surface and evenly spread the pizza sauce on top. Add prosciutto slices and generously sprinkle goat cheese all over.
  • Bake the Pizza. Bake the goat cheese pizza at the highest temperature your oven can get for about 8-10 minutes or until doneness. 
  • Enjoy. Add fresh marjoram leaves generously on top, and drizzle honey all over before serving.

FAQs

Is pizza good the next day?


Yes. Be sure to store leftover pizza in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Leftover pizza is delicious when heated up in a saute pan with little olive oil or in an air fryer.

What white wine goes with goat cheese?


This tangy goat cheese pizza recipe pairs best with a bottle of unoaked Chardonnay. We selected a Chardonnay from La Crema Winery in Windsor, California. Chardonnay wine has a nice crisp and fruity aroma that drives a lingering finish with each bite of this pizza.
