Pizza Friday – Roasted Apple and Prosciutto Pizza with Maple Balsamic Glaze

Pizza Friday Apple and Prosciutto Pizza with Balsamic Glaze

Welcome back to another Pizza Friday! Where I share a new pizza recipe that is too good that you’ll never order pizza again! 😉

This Friday’s pizza is topped with apple slices, prosciutto, sharp cheddar, arugula, and a balsamic glaze.  I got the idea of this pizza combo after browsing through Joanna Gains’ Magnolia Table Cookbook.  It was an appetizer recipe that included prosciutto wrapped around a sliced apple, sharp cheddar, and arugula and then topped with a balsamic glaze.  What a brilliant appetizer recipe, right? I thought so…

The appetizer was super simple to make, and the flavors melted together with each bite. 

That’s when my mind started wondering if this combo would go together as a pizza…  So, I got to work the next week, and after a couple of takes, we have ourselves a new pizza to add to our Pizza Friday menu! WIN-WIN! 

This Roasted Apple and Prosciutto Pizza with a delicious Maple Balsamic Glaze is super easy, sweet, savory, and packed with a ton of flavor!

Description

This Roasted Apple and Prosciutto Pizza with a delicious Maple Balsamic Glaze is super easy, sweet, savory, and packed with a ton of flavor! 


Ingredients

Scale
  1. Pizza dough, homemade or storebought 
  2. 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  3. 2 garlic cloves, minced
  4. pinch of salt and pepper
  5. 1, 2-oz package of sliced Prosciutto
  6. 1 apple (Gala or Honey Crisp), cut into slices
  7. 1 cup of grated extra sharp white cheddar cheese (Tillamook’s Maker’s Reserve Extra Sharp White Cheddar)
  8. Handful of arugula

Maple Balsamic Glaze:

  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup

Instructions

  1. Place a pizza stone in the oven and preheat the oven to 550 degrees or as high as it can get. You want your oven as hot as possible. 
  2. Prepare pizza dough.  If your dough was in the fridge, bring the dough to room temperature about 2 hours before rolling it out. If your dough is ready, flour the surface and flour a rolling pin to roll the dough from the center to the edges until the circle is about half an inch thick.  Once fully rolled out, place parchment paper on your pizza peel, gently pick up the dough, and lay it on top. 
  3. In a small bowl, mix the minced garlic, olive oil, and salt and pepper. 
  4. Using a silicone pastry brush, gently add the garlic olive oil mixture on top of the pizza dough.
  5. Assemble the pizza by adding prosciutto, apple slices, and white cheddar cheese on top.
  6. Gently slide pizza onto the pizza stone and bake for about 12-15 minutes or until cheese is melted and crust is golden brown. 
  7. Meanwhile, make the Balsamic Glaze by adding 1/4 cup of balsamic vinegar and 2 tablespoons of maple syrup to a saucepan. Bring sauce to a boil and reduce to a simmer, constantly whisking for about 10 minutes. The sauce should reduce in half and should start to thicken up.  Once reduce in half, remove from heat and let it sit to cool for about 5 minutes.
  8. Remove the pizza from the oven and add arugula ontop. It will wilt in about a minute. Drizzle the glaze over on top.
  9. Cut into slices and serve immediately.
