Briny capers and salty prosciutto atop a lemon garlic olive oil base with lots of gooey cheese. This pizza is a total flavor bomb! So freakin delicious.


1 pizza dough, room temp, either from the supermarket deli or give my recipe a try

1/4c olive oil
1/2 lemon, zested
1 garlic clove, grated/minced
1/4t thyme
Pinch red pepper flakes
Salt and pepper

4oz fontina or mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/4c parmesan or provolone, grated

2T capers, drained
3 slices prosciutto, torn up a bit


Preheat oven to 500°F with your pizza stone inside. Heavily sprinkle a pizza peel with semolina or cornmeal. Stretch dough in a big circle and place on top of the semolina, give the peel a little shake to know that the dough isn’t sticking. If you don’t have a pizza stone just line a baking sheet with parchment and stretch your dough out in a circle on there.

Stir together olive oil, lemon zest, garlic, thyme, red pepper flakes and a pinch of salt and pepper, stir then brush it all over the dough, leaving about an inch around the border. Sprinkle the cheese over the dough then top with capers and prosciutto. Bake for about 10 minutes.
