proscuitto and heirloom tomato pizza

Mmmm I love pizza. I could eat it every single day although my waistline would not appreciate my indulgence. After a restful day at the beach with Laura though I decided to treat myself to a semi-homemade pizza.  David didn’t seem to complain as he noshed it down one scrumptious bite after the other.

This is a multi-grain pizza dough that I purchased from Whole Foods (a little bit of cheat..shhh) But I have also made this dough which is delicious and as the title suggests easy: dough

Roll the dough out using a rolling pin and a touch of flour and place the dough on a baking dish

Now the fun part. Spread a layer of your favorite tomato sauce around the dough leaving about inch to 1/2 inch un-sauced around the crust. Here I added some slices of heirloom tomatoes.

Toss some chopped chives around the top to add a little spice.
