What is pizza?

➡️ Pizza is a dish that originated in Italy. It typically consists of a round and flat base prepared with leavened wheat-based dough. This dough is then topped with tomatoes, cheese, and various other ingredients. Finally, the pizza is baked at a high temperature, traditionally in a wood-fired oven.

What is ham pizza?

➡️ Ham pizza is a variety of pizza whose main ingredient is ham. One of the most famous ham pizzas is Capriciosa pizza, which is a classic Italian pizza recipe with baked ham. Prosciutto, a dry-cured ham type, may also be used in some variations of Capriciosa pizza. Other cured ham varieties used for pizza include Prague ham, York ham, and other similar types.

PRO Tips For The Ham Pizza Recipe with Brie Cheese

➡️ Pizza is nowadays among the most popular food recipes all over the world. There are hundreds of pizza recipes. Some of them are traditional recipes from Italy, the country where pizza was made for the first time (at least, Italian say that!). However, today most of us like pizza and we want to eat it whenever we have the opportunity. We like pizza so much that we often abuse and overeat it!

➡️ Of course, everyone knows a few kinds of pizza that you order from your favorite pizzeria. For commercial reasons, each pizzeria makes only a few types of pizza that, at some point, we no longer want because their taste has become commonplace. At that moment, you think about what it would be like to make your own homemade pizza recipe on which to put the toppings you like the most. I overcame that moment and started making my own homemade pizza recipes and I share one of them on this page. It contains two of the ingredients that I really like, namely smoked ham and creamy cheese.

➡️ For this recipe, most often I use country-style smoked bacon, on which I leave a little fat because it gives an extra flavor to the food. However, you can use other types of ham without any fat such as Prague ham, York ham, Prosciutto Cotto, and so on.

➡️ As for the cheese, I use a type of French creamy cheese called Brie cheese. Without question, you can use a different kind of creamy cheese that you have at your disposal or even replace it with another type of matured cheese such as grated Parmesan, Cheddar, or Gruyere.

➡️ Regarding the dough needed for ham pizza, you can use commercial dough bought from the store or make your own dough at home. Some people think this is complicated, but in reality, homemade pizza dough recipes are simple and don’t take that long, even if the yeast pizza dough needs to be leavened (see how to make pizza dough at home.)

➡️ Even if I like flavored food, I avoid using too many spices. Brie cheese and ham pizza is one of the dishes in which I use a small number of such ingredients. This is due to the fact that both smoked ham and Brie cheese have their own strong flavors and I want them to be well perceived in the final taste of the pizza.

➡️ Even if I like flavored food, I avoid using too many spices. Brie cheese and ham pizza is one of the dishes in which I use a small number of such ingredients. This is because both smoked ham and Brie cheese have their own strong flavors and I want them to be well perceived in the final taste of the pizza. If you like less flavored food, you can use a smaller amount of spices or even remove them completely.

➡️ As for onions, their use is completely at your discretion. If you’re going to use them, I recommend you cut very thin slices so that they can bake during the time spent in the oven.

➡️ Enjoy making ham pizza from scratch!
