Homemade pizza is one of the good things in life – fun to make, customizable, and loved by many – so it’s worth the extra effort. If you have a good homemade dough recipe (and the time) use that. If not, a good grocery store generally sells fresh dough balls, and you can also usually purchase them from your favorite local pizza joint.
Pizza is delicious cooked in a wood burning oven, but any good hot oven will do. We get the best of both worlds cooking on our Big Green Egg.
For this recipe, we made a red tomato/roasted red bell pepper sauce for the base and kept the toppings simple with prosciutto, fresh mozzarella and basil. We hope you enjoy!
